Yemeni journalist Nasser Arrabyee returns to the show to discuss the U.S.-Saudi war in Yemen, which is now entering its fourth year. Arrabyee describes the mood on the ground in Yemen, how things have changed since the beginning of the war, and what a political solution might look like. Scott then asks about the role of the UAE in the conflict and its alliance with the separatists of Southern Yemen and what Arrabyee’s thoughts are on the recent failed Senate resolution to invoke the War Powers act to stop U.S. aid to the Saudis. Arrabyee then gives his best estimate of the total casualties that have been amassed since the beginning of the war.
Discussed on the show:
- “Yemen’s Houthi rebels fire missiles toward Saudi cities, 1 dead” (The Washington Post)
- Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi
- Ali Abdullah Saleh
