12/18/20 Nasser Arrabyee on Yemen’s Desperate Humanitarian Crisis

Nasser Arrabyee is back with an update on the ongoing war in Yemen. Joe Biden, he says, has said some promising things about ending U.S. support for the Suadi war there, but both Arrabyee and Scott are skeptical that he will follow through at all. Supporters of the war, including Mohammed bin Salman in Saudi Arabia and Mike Pompeo in the U.S., are pushing for the international community to officially designate the Houthis as a terrorist group, which Arrabyee says would only make it even more difficult to get humanitarian aid to the Yemeni people. Yemen has now been identified as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis for the third year running, and yet the mainstream media devotes almost no coverage to the situation. Change, says Arrabyee, must begin with widespread awareness.

  • “Yemen most at risk of humanitarian catastrophe in 2021: IRC” (Al Jazeera)
  • “The Saudi Coalition’s Food War on Yemen” (MERIP)

9/18/20 Nasser Arrabyee on the Continued Horrors of the War in Yemen

Nasser Arrabyee discusses the war in Yemen, where the Trump administration is now approaching four years of continued support for Saudi Arabia in their war of genocide against the Yemeni population. The UN estimates that close to a quarter of a million civilians have died there since Obama helped start this war, and Arrabyee says that with all the excess deaths from malnutrition and deprivation, there is good reason to believe that that number is much higher. Scott reminds us that the war in Yemen differs from other modern wars in the Middle East in that in most of America’s wars, civilians are just tragic collateral damage—in Yemen, on the other hand, deliberate targeting of civilians and civilian infrastructure has been the strategy all along.

  • “War Crime Risk Grows for U.S. Over Saudi Strikes in Yemen” (The New York Times)
  • “Saudi Arabia announces more than $200 million in UN aid funding to Yemen” (CNN)
  • “Yemen war dead could hit 233,000 by 2020 in what UN calls ‘humanity’s greatest preventable disaster’” (The Independent)

4/15/20 Nasser Arrabyee on the World’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis

Nasser Arrabyee brings us the latest on the war in Yemen, where he says that a supposed recent Saudi ceasefire has actually meant very little on the ground. Arrabyee thinks the announcement was nothing more than a public relations stunt. Despite the looming threat of coronavirus, as well as another outbreak of cholera with the rainy season around the corner, both of which threaten to make what is already the world’s worst humanitarian crisis even more of a disaster, the western media seem to be completely uninterested in covering what’s going on there. President Trump, too, is unwilling to do what’s right by ending America’s support for Saudi Arabia.

2/21/20 Nasser Arrabyee with an Update on the War in Yemen

Scott interviews Nasser Arrabyee about the latest on the war in Yemen. The humanitarian situation there is still desperate, with the UN finally updating its estimates to over 200,000 dead—many of these women and young children. But Arrabyee sees reasons for hope. For one thing, the war is very unpopular, both among Americans and for Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, so neither country looks very good for their participation. Arrabyee says that airports may also start to be opened to humanitarian aid soon, helping to alleviate the thousands of deaths from deprivation and preventable disease.

12/13/19 Nasser Arrabyee on the War in Yemen

Scott interviews Nasser Arrabyee about Yemen, where the U.S. continues to back Suadi Arabia in waging a war of starvation against the people of Yemen. Scott calls this the very worst thing our government is doing, and yet by and large the American people don’t much care about it. Arrabyee says that Houthi leaders are beginning to talk with the Saudis through backchannels, which could be the first step toward a deescalation of the bombing and a reopening of airports, which would allow desperately needed foreign aid to get to the Yemenis.

9/30/19 Nasser Arrabyee on the Houthi Attack on Saudi Forces

Nasser Arrabyee is back with an important update from Yemen, where Houthi forces are now claiming to have captured thousands of Saudi soldiers in a battle in August. They likely view this as leverage in a possible peace negotiation, but Scott fears that it could also provoke President Trump into supporting America’s allies, the Saudis, in an even more violent retribution than what is already being carried out.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Yemen’s Houthi rebels release Saudi attack video” (Al Jazeera)
  • “Saudi Arabia has sent messages to Iran’s president: Iran government” (Reuters)

9/23/19 Nasser Arrabyee with the Latest on the War in Yemen

Nasser Arrabyee comes back for an update on the war in Yemen. Saudi forces continue to bomb Yemeni cities, and American neocons continue to insist that the war is being justly prosecuted against the Iran-backed Houthis. Arrabyee says these claims of Iranian support are overblown. As usual, the American media ignores most of the history and nuances of the war altogether.

  • “Saudis Pound Yemen After Houthis’ Truce Offer” (News From Antiwar.com)
  • “Saudi-led coalition launches 27 airstrikes on Yemen in 24 hours: Houthi spokesman” (China.org)
  • “Saudi Arabia begins new operation against Yemen’s Houthi rebels near Hodeidah” (The Defense Post)

9/9/19 Nasser Arrabyee on the Ongoing War in Yemen

Nasser Arrabyee is back with an update from Yemen, where civilian casualties resulting from the Saudi-led war there have climbed past 100,000, by even conservative estimates. This number doesn’t include any of the people who have died from malnutrition and easily preventable diseases, which surely includes tens if not hundreds of thousands more.

8/12/19 Nasser Arrabyee on Saudi War Crimes in Yemen

Nasser Arrabyee discusses the latest Saudi war crime against Yemeni civilians, the bombing of a family on the first day of Eid al-Adha. He also gives a summary of the last few months of the horrific war there, replete with complex political nuances that will not be resolved by a simple and total military victory. The war goes on only because the United States government continues to lend material support to the Saudis and will not openly condemn the conflict.
