A highlight from Growing Unease: Current Administrations Approach to Security and Travel with David Bellavia
"What do you think they're doing with cash, right? What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? Yeah. What do you, it's, this is a state sponsor of terrorism. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens. America's comeback now. starts right Welcome back Financial Guys podcast. Mike Speraza in studio live today with a guest in the studio. I haven't had this in a long time. Staff Sergeant medal of honor recipient David Bellavia joining me for about a half hour today. David, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So I'm going to stick based on your background. I'm going to stick with a lot of military stuff today and I want to start, we'll go all the way back to the beginning of the Joe Biden presidency. The Afghanistan withdrawal, in my opinion, did not go very smoothly. I'm sure many people listening agree. What were your overall thoughts of that withdrawal and how it actually ended up happening? I know we lost, you know, sadly lost 13 soldiers in that, in that withdrawal. People say we went off the wrong air base. People say that we shouldn't have gone out in the middle of the summer. There was a lot of different things there. What were your overall thoughts on that? I think it's like the worst day in American history since Market Garden. Just absolutely. And the reason why it was so difficult was it was totally unnecessary. So let's rewind to the Obama trade, Bull Bergdahl and the three first round draft picks. They get Marshall, they get MacArthur and they get Patton that end up the resurgence of the Taliban. These men not just go back to the enemy, they go back to the battlefield. They're in power when the government falls. You have misinformation coming from the White House that the president of Afghanistan is leaving with billions of dollars on his plane, which wasn't true. And then you leave the equipment, the cash. There's no recovery. We're getting reports of sales of American equipment left in Afghanistan in Southeast Asia. We're moving material across the globe. Our children will fight and pay and have to atone for these miscalculations. Let's talk about that. You being in the military and you knowing that area too, why did they just find it the easiest way out to just say, you know, just leave that billion dollar billions of dollars of equipment there and not think, again, if it was me and I'm speaking that someone that's never been in the military, but if it's me and I'm the president, I'm thinking, OK, I don't want to leave all our weaponry there. I don't want to lose any of my men. Number two. And number three, I want to make sure that everybody knows when and how we're getting out of there. And it just felt like poof. One day they said we're getting out of here. Well, it's because the military didn't make any of those decisions. I mean, look, Millie, it can criticize him. You can criticize Secretary of Defense worthy of criticism. However, none of these individuals are making decisions. This is about NGOs on the ground. This is about the State Department. So you've got Bagram Air Base, the equivalent of JFK. You've got Karzai International Airport, the equivalent of Teterboro. Right. Why would you ever do an exfil out of Karzai International Airport? It makes absolutely no sense. It's tactically unsound. But and then you've got all the ISIS -K. We retaliate from the murder of 13 of our bravest and we drop a bomb on a guy delivering water. He's on our payroll and we kill children on that. Then we take out Borat on a tuk tuk driving around like that wasn't even really what was happening. It's just a den of lies. And Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, all the heroes that brought us, you know, the Bergdahl deal, the Iran nuke deal. This is these. They the State Department is running all foreign policy, including what the DOD used to run. Well, that's I was going to say. I mean, I know Biden's the president, but do you blame him at all or is it everybody underneath him that, you know, maybe was giving him bad information? And again, some of these decisions, David, is Biden even involved in some of these decisions? Like, I don't even know anymore. Is he around? Is he paying attention to anything going on? Well, I mean, just from the press conferences, it was apparent he didn't know what was going on. And the great irony is that they actually were predicting that Ukraine was going to be invaded and, you know, no one believed them. So it's like you can't influence your friends. The allies don't trust you. The enemy doesn't respect you. You know, I mean, you've got Ben Rhodes is really proud of this State Department. Susan Rice loves what they're doing. But, you know, again, Americans died. And, you know, and what is the perfect culmination of the adventure in Afghanistan? Looking at your watch at Dover Air Base when bodies are coming home. I mean, nothing could you couldn't ask for a just it's it's a debacle. Yeah. And it's sad that that's that's the leader of our country there. Let's move in. You brought up the Ukraine there. So the Russia Ukraine conflict will get to Zelensky in a minute. He is as we speak in New York City right now. But so Trump's in office. We don't see many of these conflicts or any conflicts actually started under his watch. And then we have the Biden administration come in. And a year later, we have Russia invading Ukraine. Why did this happen and why? Why the timing of February of 2022? So let's go back to when we were fighting ISIS. Trump engaged and destroyed estimated some say 300 members of Wagner forces. But those were Russian nationals. We engaged. We destroyed them. What was the response from Putin? Nothing at all. So what do people in that section of the world, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, what do they respect? They respect power. They respect authority. You're not going to get any respect if you don't engage the enemy when they present themselves. I don't understand the calculus of again, I'm trying hard to figure it out. I don't get it. I don't. You know, Romania and Hungary and Poland, you're letting them unilaterally decide whether or not they want to send reinforcements into Ukraine. That's an act of war. If NATO members engage the enemy, all of NATO is engaged against the enemy. Poland doesn't unilaterally make that decision. Hungary and Romania don't unilaterally make that decision. We can't even articulate what the mission is. And if you look, go to the Institute for the Study of War, there's a plug for them. Check out their overlay from when the battle started, when the war started with Russia. And tell me what success this offensive in Ukraine has produced. I mean, let me ask this question, because I get confused. The answer is nothing. I asked this on Twitter, X, whatever it's called, all the time. What is the end game and how do we get there? Because all I see the answer is, hey, just blank checks. Hey, just write a check. Hey, here's a billion. Hey, here's 20 billion. Hey, here's another 10 billion. I don't actually see a look. I mean, like anything, right? If I write a business plan of what I want to do in 2024, my goal is X. I write down my steps to get X. I don't just write down X and say it's going to happen. I don't really know. And then the answer always is, well, we have to fight. We have to back Ukraine. Okay. But when does that end? Because the Afghanistan war and the war in Iraq lasted 20 years plus, right? And was there a real end to it? I don't know. That's where it gets frustrating for me, Dave, where I'm like, how do we know what the end game is? Do you win or lose? When does that happen? I don't know. I don't know. At least you're thinking about it. And I have fear that our leaders aren't, and that's the problem. So here's what this comes out. You're going to get a negotiated settlement out of Ukraine, right? But you talked about the billions of dollars that we're spending and giving to Ukraine as a blank check. First of all, Zelensky visited Ukrainian soldiers in the United States. Did you know that there were wounded Ukrainian soldiers in the United States? I did not know that. Well, today he visited them. So what's happening there? So that's a cost that no one is putting on the ledger. So now let's look at the blank check that Ukraine is getting. And by the way, I'm pro Ukraine. I want to fight communists all day and night. So let's punch Putin hard in the face. However, you're giving them a blank check and you're giving them munitions. Now here's the problem. We have to replace those munitions. Those munitions were purchased for 20 year global war and terror. And let's be honest, inflation is involved. So what you purchased for $10 is now $17. So you're not just giving them the money. You're giving them the equipment and the munitions that you have to replace yourself at the value of what is valued today. We haven't scratched the surface for the amount of money. CBO absent at the wheel. No one is tracking this. 2024 can't get here fast enough. How does this work, though, when you talk about some of these NATO nations coming together and making decisions, but us not just giving weaponry, giving everything money, whatever we're giving there? Is that not an act of war, too, though, David, at some point? We're continuing to fund Ukraine continuing the war in Ukraine. I mean, that to me seems like we're backing a war. Well, I mean, by the letter of the law and NATO charter, it's not. But here's the problem. It's schizophrenic because we were told that what was an offensive weapon was going to mitigate, you know, that wasn't going to help peace at all. So we went from, I don't know if they should get tracked vehicles to I'm not sure an artillery piece is what they need to high Mars rockets being launched. And let's be honest. I mean, the Ukrainians are I mean, the payload that they're going through, what you would have to have cataclysmic casualty numbers to be able to to the spandex that they're doing on the ground that they need to replace Patriot. If you're going through thirty five Patriot to, you know, missiles, I would expect to at least the C 20 makes that are shot down. They're using them for air artillery. They're using there for indirect fire. I don't know what they're doing, but this is going to end with Don Boss going to Russia. This is going to end with that land chain that Putin wanted through Crimea. And again, our friends in NATO, what are they even doing for Ukraine? What? Look, if you they said that Trump wanted to kill NATO, Biden did it. Right. Biden did it. And now Germany. And so Putin was selling oil at thirty dollars a barrel. What's it at ninety six? Yeah. He's making more money than he did before. And he's financing a war and killing innocent people. You mentioned before, too, and I think this is a good point. Everybody on the left and I'll say the media, the establishment, whoever you want to say, says that if you don't agree with the war in Ukraine, you're like pro Putin. Right. And that's just the most outrageous thing in the world, because I agree with you. I feel for the people of Ukraine. I don't want this for them. I don't want this for innocent people. However, at some point, the world's every every one of the world's problems can't be America's problem when we have a border crisis. And then I think they said yesterday ten thousand people came across. They got, I think, eight thousand of the ten thousand. But you see the numbers day over day. It's a problem. We have crime that's rampant. We have overdoses that are at record numbers. We have we have suicides at record numbers. At some point, we have to maybe just think about ourselves and not everybody else, because if we fall, sadly, I think the world falls at that point. Amen. The thing that I would add is I love the way the Ukraine refugee has been crowbarred into the migrant crisis in the United States. New York leaders from the city to all over Kathy Hochul, the governor of the state of New York, mentioning that, you know, like the Ukrainians in Poland, the the Polish have no intention to keep Ukrainians forever. That's a temporary you know, they're leaving a conflict to return to their country after the conflict is over. Again, this is just we're we're putting a round peg into a square hole and just hammering it away. But but there's no the media. There's you're our destroying military. I go to parents all the time around this country and ask them to give us their sons and daughters to join the military. And the one thing they bring up is Afghanistan. It's not about anything. It's Afghanistan. How are you going to assure us that you're going to maintain your commitment to our son and daughter when you betrayed us in Afghanistan that has lasting effects? And there's not a I'm trying to find a segment of our of our of our nation that's functioning. I don't know what it is. I saw in Chicago, they're going to have municipally owned grocery stores. Maybe that will figure it out there. Yeah, yeah, it's good. Real quick, do you think and we'll finish up on this topic, but do you think that they will we will ever have boots in the ground on Ukraine? I mean, I hope not, because I just don't know what the I mean, look at I'm I'm we're getting ready for China. We're trying to revolutionize everything. I don't know what the what the plan is. I mean, again, if you want to put a base in Ukraine, and you want to make that a sustainment operation going forward, that I here's the point. I don't understand what the inactive ready reserve call up was for. Why are you bringing those troops in the non combat support? Why are they going to Ukraine? What are you building infrastructure there? Here's what I do know. We're talking a minimum of $11 trillion to build Ukraine back. That is cataclysmic amounts of money. There isn't water, electricity, internet, you know, you want to help Ukraine. You're going to Russia is not paying for that if you negotiate a settlement. So I don't know what the plan is. But I hope we never see boots on the ground. I could guess what the plan is. I won't I won't say for sure. But I could guess that we'll be paying a chunk of that. And I do have one last one. So I did interview Colonel Douglas McGregor a few months back. And he talked about he's a real optimist. But he is really very, very bullish on Ukraine. Yes, very, very optimistic. I'm dropping some all over the place. But he brought up some staggering numbers, though. And even if they're half true, it's a problem. The amount of casualties and wounded soldiers on the Ukrainian side that we're not hearing about the media. I don't know if you agree with some of those numbers or not. But he's saying, I mean, it's people are acting as if this is an even war right now. And it's not even close. First of all, McGregor's a stud. I mean, he's an absolute, you know, that we're glad he's on our side. He's a military mind. I don't know if those numbers are accurate. I could tell you they're juxtaposed to almost everything we're hearing from every institution that we have, including a lot of our intel from Germany and England. But again, I don't know what to believe. So when you don't have when you don't have transparency, when you're not holding regular press conferences, when your Pentagon spokesman is now working in the White House and now you're getting a triple spin. I mean, the U .S. Open double backspin. You've gotten so many spins on the narrative. I don't know what to believe. But if he is even close to what is a segment of truth, you know, then look, Ukraine needs an investigation. There's a lot of investigations. We've got to start on Afghanistan. We were promised that by Speaker McCarthy. We need a hot wash on Afghanistan. And then we need to go to what who is oversighting the money that's going to Ukraine. And what have we got for our return on investment? Yeah, I'm not asking for much. Really, all I'm asking for in this conflict is can we just talk about what the end game is? And to your point, can we get an accounting of where the money's going and what's being spent in a real accounting of it? The Iran deal that just happened last week. First off, the fact that that was negotiated and completed on 11th September to me is just the ultimate slap in the face. But you again, you know more about this than I do. We do a five for five trade. OK, I'm going to use sports analogies. We trade five for five. And then we also approved of six billion dollars that apparently wasn't ours, but it was in a fund that now they can release to Iran. How are we winning on that one? Well, first of all, I was hoping that at least it was a digital transfer. The fact that it went as euros in cash through Qatar. And OK, so what happens the 24 hours after that deal is made? We're now getting issues in the West Bank. We're now hearing about issues in Yemen. We've now got Hezbollah that's reinforced. I mean, look, what do you think they're doing with cash? Right. What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? What do you it's this is a state sponsor of terrorism. They haven't changed. By the way, their president is now in New York City addressing the United Nations. This guy's killed 6500 of his own people. He admits to it. He killed the students that revolted and wanted democracy when we did nothing. He killed 5000 of his citizens in 1988. He's killed over 300 Americans. There's no accountability whatsoever. I don't understand what it is about Jake Sullivan and Tony Blinken that believe that Iran is a partner. All you've done 10 years ago, they were refining 10 percent of their oil. And now they're a force. Now they're working with Maduro in Venezuela, and they're a huge part of their members of of the international community. They're in good standing there. I don't get it. Does anyone believe that the Iran nuke deal? Look, we got hit with cruise missiles under Trump in Iraq. How did they have those cruise missiles? Those cruise missiles were illegal under the Obama nuke deal. So how are you refurbishing missiles in two years? Do we believe that their centrifuges have stopped? That they won't have a program if they don't have one already? No, I mean, I guess my question, David, is how I mean, I know that you pay a lot of attention to this stuff, but how do people like in the media not ask these questions? Right. I mean, these are legitimate. I mean, we just traded to I put this on my notes here. This is on the heels of trading a WNBA basketball player for the Merchant of Death like six months ago. Right. I mean, and again, I'm glad Americans are coming back to America. I don't want to sound pessimistic on that. That's great news. But we also I mean, this this stuff just seems like I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. It warrants questions, but nobody seems to care. I'm in the world that if you take hostages, we take hostages. You want to exchange people? We'll exchange people. You know, we definitely have the partners in the area to do that. For whatever reason, this administration, they're they're they're contrarians. They're contrarians to you know, they claim Bush and Cheney are their best friends, yet they just go 180 degrees from that doctrine. I don't know what the Biden doctrine is. I don't know what Bidenonomics is either, but I could tell you that they believe that Iran is a partner. Now, here's another thing. Our envoy to Iran not only is no longer the envoy, he doesn't have a security clearance. Does anyone curious at The New York Times as to what happened to the lead negotiator in Iran that is escorted off a bus, taken into American custody, given a job at Yale or Princeton or wherever he's working now? I've never heard of a person going from top secret classified negotiations to no clearance whatsoever and in the custody of American intelligence community. No one cares. No one cares at all. It's fascinating. And again, for me, I mean, these are big decisions that we're making. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it used to be, you know, maybe we did a two for five deal and then we made the six billion. Now we're like, we're giving stuff away and we're on the losing end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but America was never, you know, America losing. It was always America winning, right? America getting the best of deals. At least McDonald's has a five for five. We didn't even get that. You know what this does though? Honest to God, if you're thinking about traveling overseas, things go sideways, cartel, South America, Mexico, wherever you're going, you have a price in your head now. No one in their right mind is going to bring you back whether it's Haiti or wherever you are, you're worth $1 .25 billion. And thugs and scumbags are going to take advantage of that. I mean, that's a great point too. Do you think about leaving the country? I don't know anymore. That's a little bit concerning. I don't care where you're going, right? That's concerning. This one I just had to bring up because it happened two days ago or yesterday. How do we lose a plane? And I heard that's like a third one in the last six weeks that something like this has happened. How are we losing $80 million planes? Well, they're not $80 million anymore because they've got a new engine and all this other stuff. Look, the F -35 program is a complete disaster. You want to talk about why our allies think we're crazy. We sold them a plane. This program has been around since the early 90s and we've got nothing on return for it. So basically two planes are flying in a buddy team. They're doing training and a guy punches out. We don't even know why he punched out, but that plane could have easily hit a building. It didn't, thank God. But the wingman didn't follow where his buddy went. So what is he doing? He just kind of went on and did his own thing. And now the Marine Corps put a Facebook post like a dog is missing. We're expecting the Ukrainian farmers to carry the F -35 out with their tractors. I don't know what the point of it's wild. Look, stop embarrassing us. Just stop humiliating us. That's all I'm asking. Just be the army and the Marine Corps that we know our men and women are capable of being. Get out of their way. This gender garbage, this social experiment nonsense, stop humiliating our military. That's all I ask. Why can we not get the... I mean, I know why we can't get the answer, but I'm asking this to you. But why can't we, at a press conference at the White House, why can't we say, I want to talk to the guy that was in the other plane, or you can tell us the transcript of what happened when that happened. Talk to the guy who jumped out of the plane. Why did you do that? And again, I'm not trying to put our military on the spot, but these are kind of big questions to ask, right? I mean, if I do something in my business, I have to go face the music on that. Why doesn't everybody have to face music for their decisions or why things are happening? I think it's kind of important. Well, you don't want to talk to generals because they're going to tell you the truth and they won't be generals anymore. True. And you don't want to talk to enlisted people. Because look, I mean, let's be honest. How many people are... Is this a merit -based military anymore? Do we have a meritocracy? Are we promoting people based on pronouns? Go figure. When we're putting politics above military strength, accidents happen. We don't know the facts, but the fact that nobody cares about getting to the bottom of it, the day of the Pentagon paper reporters are gone. Yep. Yep. Let's just talk about the 2024 race quick, and then we will wrap up for today. So your thoughts on the Republican primary so far, I'll stay away from the Democratic side till the very end, but your thoughts on, you know, there's obviously Trump who is now in a, has a huge lead. Ron DeSantis seems to be crumbling underneath himself. Vivek Ramaswamy has jumped up in the polls. Nikki Haley's there. Tim Scott's there. A few others that probably aren't going to get a lot of votes. Chris Christie's the anti -Trump candidate. Mike Pence is, I don't know what Mike Pence is. I'm not really sure. Your thoughts about the whole field so far? I mean, look, it's impressive. They've got a deep bench. There's a lot of diversity. I, you know, none of it matters. Trump is the guy. The more you indict him, the more you empower him. You know, I'd like him to work on his communications a little bit better. You know, but if Trump is Trump, Trump is a Frankenstein monster of Barack Obama. As long as you have that faction, you're going to get, you know, Trump is going to be empowered. I just don't want to see Governor Noem anywhere near the White House. And I, if he's going to pick a running mate, you know, it's hard to find an ally here, you know. But it would be nice to find a governor. I don't want to take anyone from the Senate. I don't want to take anyone from the House with the margins that tight. But I mean, the idea that Governor Noem is being floated right now. I mean, I'd rather take North Dakota. Yeah. A little sled there. You know, it's funny you mentioned that because I saw a lot of that this weekend. I mean, can we just, for lack of a better term, keep it in our pants for about a year and then do what you got to do? It really is. I mean, every time you turn, somebody's doing something idiotic, whether it's Boebert. And again, I say this, David, a lot of people know who you are. A lot more know who you are than they'll ever know who I am. But when you go out in public into a movie theater like that, and I'm going to Boebert, not Noem for a second, you're, you're extremely well known. I don't care if it's dark or if it's as light as it is in the studio right now. What are you thinking? I, you know, she's, she's, she's an embarrassment. She is. She's bad, too. Who would have thought that Marjorie Taylor Greene would have been the, the oasis of the Maryland? I mean, seriously, I, again, you're, you're in Congress every day. You're out in public, you're on the job. You know, at least she wasn't wearing a hoodie, you know, that's all in shorts. She was at least dressed for the occasion, but I, it was, it's wildly embarrassing. Vaping, singing, whatever you're doing. Getting groped. Yes. Who is your VP candidate then? Because I think, you know, you have names thrown around. There's, there's, the vague has been thrown around in there. You know, Byron Donald's has been thrown around in there. Carrie Lake has. I don't know. I love Carrie Lake. I just don't know that Trump needs to go with somebody so divisive there. I think he's got to go with somebody that's, that's firm in their beliefs, but also not maybe going to turn off half the country. Well, you know, it's, it's impossible. One of the, one of the problems with making Trump, you know, the, the enemy of the state that the left has done is that you've really made it difficult for him to even put a cabinet together. You know, I mean, what are you going to do with it? You've got a lot of loyalists out there. You know, the vague is, is I think maybe the most intelligent dynamic candidate we've ever seen run for president, but experience does matter. But you know, I love the way he thinks. I love the movement. I don't know if he would even take the job to be honest with it. I don't think he needs it. But you look at a Tim Scott, I think Tim Scott is, you know, there's a whole lot to his message and I think he's, he's got the experience in the Senate, but honestly, you could literally take the Clint Eastwood chair and, and throw it in there as vice president. I'm going with that because this, this from top to bottom, we have to have seismic change in 24. Do you think he would ever choose Kristi Noem at this point with all that now? Yeah, no one knew Mike Pence was a, was a 24 hour story and then he was the vice president candidate. So who knows? I mean, a lot can happen between now and then, but I just, I don't need, you know, let's just pick people on their merit. Let's pick people that are ready to be the president. Imagine this, imagine picking a vice president that can lead the country. If something happens to a 75 year old president, you know, like Kamala Harris. Yeah. Someone like that.
Fresh update on "yemen" discussed on Bloomberg Surveillance
"Cautious and careful in our deliberations I didn't even think he was necessarily on board for another rate hike this year even though that's in the dot plots of course once again he downplays the dot plots his answer to the soft landing question you know initially was asked do you think we're going to have a soft landing and said he no and then he was asked again and then he thought I gotta I gotta rethink the answer this time around he says well we're always striving for a soft landing great you know and the New York Giants are always striving to win an NFL game but that didn't work so well last night did it so it was interesting how we answered the question. But I think that what it also points to David and this goes to how you're modeling is that kind knows what's going to happen like like Mike McKee basically asked Powell the question like why should we believe you you guys have consistently been wrong and any kind of like yeah we don't have a high confidence level in our projections for all of those reasons so why are you so confident that the models that have worked and you've been used in the past and the Greenspan and Arthur Burns stuff why are you so confident that that actually transpires again? well look I think that the US economy is a credit an economy -driven and we know that Monterey policy works with lags and the lags can be long and lags can be long because there are factors other of play that extend the cycle so this time around it was various forms of fiscal stimulus and of course the last messages of the excess savings file from the Biden Budget Buster back in March 2021 I mean 2 .2 trillion dollars of a cash giveaway to the household sector vetting some change and that was and you know that was the Energizer Bunny that just kept on kicking but that story is pretty well played itself out but acted as a very strong antidote you know it's the same question look you guys were asking me the same question back in 07 you just don't remember where's this recession already and you know you know what the lags were the lags were long then too the recession started December of 07 and what happened then was that households even in the face of rising rates kept their cash flow positive because well the acronym back then wasn't YOLO today for Main Street is what FOMO is for Wall Street it was MEU do you remember MEU? M -E -W mortgage equity withdrawal and cash flow refinance and so you see in 07 households were still managing to tap the last vestige of the housing bubble until they couldn't any longer and so this time around it's been the fiscal stimulus and I would say that it proved to be more powerful than even I thought but there is that look there is still get in a jail free card after the most acute bed tighten cycle since 1981 and nobody even talked about the balance sheet because when you count in QT the actual defacto increase in rates since the winter of 2022 has been 730 basis points and so do you really think that we're going to escape this without an NPER defined session I mean that's really low odds but I know that the consensus right and the Fed ever going to forecast a recession they don't do that but I do think that they are still fighting yesterday's battle I've got to tell you and I'll tell everybody on the call go back and read the Fed's beige book that came out a couple of weeks ago it's the most comprehensive look at the U .S. economy yeah and you look at every region and it's all about disinflation momentum everywhere right so the problem I have with the Fed is that they're still fighting yesterday's battle all right David in the process in the process that's why I think the recession might not be deep it's but going to last longer than people think all right David thanks so much for your thoughts here David always appreciate getting your perspective David Rosenberg Rosenberg research he's a founder and president with our news in New York City here's Michael Martin Paul Alex thank you very much there is a late word Democratic Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey and his wife were indicted by federal prosecutors for corruption chairman of the powerful Foreign Relations Committee was indicted by federal prosecutors over bribery offenses in connection with his relationship with three businessmen it is the second time the New Jersey senator has been charged with corruption a 2015 case ended in a mistrial Ukraine has carried out a missile strike on the main headquarters Russia's Black Sea fleet large plumes of smoke could be seen over a command complex in Crimea meanwhile president Biden continued to pledge US support to Ukraine in its fight against Russia Biden and his top cabinet members welcomed Ukrainian president Zelensky to the White House as the threat of Yemen still stalks families around the globe Russia's bombing grain silos in Ukraine and separating families kidnapping this is what I can't get over kidnapping thousands of Ukrainian children with the government shutdown deadline looming at the end month of the members of the house went home for a long weekend speaker Kevin McCarthy is facing tremendous pressure from a small group of conservatives after they joined with Democrats to block action on a GOP Pentagon spending bill McCarthy accused the handful of his own members of aiming to in his words burn the whole place down senators are eagerly awaiting some sort of budget legislation from the house so they could work on the budget Republican Senator Kevin Cramer of North Dakota I think it's really important that they get something that they can send over to us regardless of what it might look like and finally today is the inaugural run for Florida's first high speed train the bright line route from Miami to Orlando Miami -dade County mayor Yella Levine Cara spoke at an inaugural event in Miami this morning this is exactly the day that we've been waiting for an exciting day for Miami -dade County and for all of Florida.

Josh Hammer: Timeless Principles vs. Ad-Hoc Policies in Conservatism
"Policies that were appropriate given the problems the of country and really kind of the Western world faith at that time and principles as And well you know not conscious refers to national conservatism the Yemen Burke Foundation where I'm a research fellow is kind of the home for that we host these national conservatism conferences really kind of trying to build on the momentum That former President Trump kind of ushered in when he was elected president 2016 trying policies to immigration take certain trade foreign policy and study more kind of nationalist direction I would say trying to kind of take social and economic policy in a direction that really tries to make America a little more whole and communitarian away from the liberalization of prior decades Well I don't disagree with that necessarily but I do have some questions because I looked into some of this which national conservatism honestly I never heard of it before but that's my fault I haven't read about it One of my concerns here and I would like you to try dissuade me from this I'm concerned that that it could push sort of a government centric industrial policy and if not what are the limits on that? In other words I understand we don't have a free market but I also understand that it's the market system that creates all the wealth in this country Government doesn't create it regulations don't create it nothing creates it but we the people so what have do you in mind in that regard because I don't quite understand that? Well first of all I think it's worth pointing

Guards on famous yacht mistakenly shoot at Yemen Coast Guard
"Gods on a famous yacht have mistakenly shot at a Yemen coast guard craft. Private armed guards aboard the yacht once owned by the late Welsh act Richard Burton, have opened fire on the Yemeni coast guard, sparking a gunfight in the gulf of Aden. It's not immediately clear if anyone was wounded. Yemen authorities had originally thought it was an attack, however, a private intelligence firm says the guards aboard the ship had mistaken the Yemenis for pirates and opened fire.
He Is Worthy of New Song
"Pray the word with David Platt is a resource from radical .NET. Psalm chapter 33 verse three sing to him a new song, play skillfully on the strings. It allowed shouts. I love this verse and particularly that first phrase sing to him a new song. This is a phrase we see multiple times in the psalms and all the way to the end of the Bible in the book of revelation when it says they sang a new song saying, and I want you to think with me about why we would sing a new song. I mean, for thousands and thousands of years, there have been songs sung to God, so why do we need new songs? Why would there be a command even here? To sing a new song. Well, think about it. You might sing a new song when you discover or experience something new about God about the one you're singing about or singing too. When you think about God, he is infinite in his glory, which means 10 trillion years from now, we'll still be discovering more glory in God, which means we'll still be singing new songs about things we've seen and things we've experienced in God. So there's that sense in which we are continually seeing experiencing more in God that leads to new songs, and then you think about as the gospel spreads from generation to generation and music changes in different ways. Then God's people in successive generations sing new songs. We're seeing songs today that are different from what God's people were singing a thousand years ago, or a hundred years ago, and we also sing some of those songs, so we sing old songs and new songs, and then think about this as we pray for the spread of the gospel among all the nations. There are thousands of people groups writing in a languages where songs are not being sung and prays to God because they've not been reached by the gospel, but when they're reached by the gospel and people come to Christ and they gather together as the church, then they compose what new songs. I think about one of my favorite songs that I have recorded on my phone. It's from very remote tribe in Asia that had been totally unreached by the gospel until some missionaries at great cost to their lives took the gospel there and people believed it specifically a young girl who then shared the gospel with her mom and dad and her mom and dad believed the gospel and soon thereafter were stoned by the religious tribal leaders in that village because they had put their faith and Jesus in what they called a foreign God and this young girl teenage girl sat down and wrote the first song of worship in her language to God praising him for his love and his faithfulness even amidst hardship and death specifically the death of her parents in this world. She sang a new song. I've got that song recorded on my phone when I listened to it. I can't help but to pray. Well, to lead us in prayer right now, even just thinking about it, God, you are worthy of new songs in every generation and every nation as we discover and experience and see more and more and more of you and all of your glory. And as your glory spreads in the world. So we say yes, we want to sing new songs forever. We want to sing new songs today and go rewatch new songs to be selling around the world to your glory. Gotta replay today for the shahari people of Saudi Arabia. No known followers of Jesus among them. Speakers of the shahari that live in Saudi and Oman and Yemen, God we pray for songs of worship to be sung in the shahari language, please God bringing about for your glory caused songs and shouts to arise in shahari, giving you praise Jesus. We pray to help us to live for this, to live, to see your song spread all over the world, even as we sing new songs in our lives and our churches and we lift up loud shouts of praise to you. You are worthy of new songs and loud shouts of praise in our lives and our churches and among all the nations. We pray this in a light of your word and solve 33 verse three in Jesus name amen.
Stampede in Yemen at Ramadan charity event kills at least 78
"A stampede in Yemen at a Ramadan charity event has killed over 70 people and injured over 70 more, scores of people died after a crowd apparently panicked after a gunshot was fired at an event to distribute financial aid in Yemen's capital. The gunshot was apparently an attempt at crowd control that went horribly wrong as it hits an electrical wire which exploded, sparking alarm, after that a stampede ensued. In the aftermath, officials arrived at the scene, their feet crunching as they stepped over schools of abandoned sandals. In a media frenzy, Yemen's Houthi prime minister Abdul Aziz had addressed the crowd. All of the officials have undertaken their legal duties to look into this tragic incident and find a serious response so that something like this doesn't happen again. The tragedy was Yemen's deadliest in years, that was not related to the country's long running war. It came ahead of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan.

Rep. Matt Gaetz Describes the Latest Rules Package
"I have several questions, but the rules package that passed yesterday. Was it a carbon copy of what was agreed to in the negotiations so far? So there are two major differences from where we were at the beginning of the week to where we ultimately ended up on the rules package first, the motion to vacate, reduced from a 5 member threshold to a one member threshold critical accountability tool, second feature of that, the church commission so that we can really focus on that in the rules. Is that okay, we had a guest yesterday that was not in rules package. Okay, so Matt, is it fair to say that if these rules were in place, the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill would not have passed as it was designed. Absolutely. It would have violated the single subject rule that exists in over 45 of our state legislatures, but not in the United States Congress. And many of the amendments that pulled that terrible piece of legislation together would have failed on Germany grounds. Now, your amendment actually has to be relevant to the underlying Bill to be considered. I know that sounds wonky, but just this last Congress, the national defense authorization act wasn't even a stand-alone bill at the end, it wasn't amendment to a water infrastructure Bill. Earlier in my career in Congress, we had to take one vote that was the farm Bill and related to war powers in Yemen. And these things ought to be considered separately, a serious country would not pair things that are not germane together and would not consider this as huge a single subject.
Praying for the Persecuted Church
"Matthew ten versus 22 and 23, and you will be hated by all for my name's sake, but the one who endures to the end will be saved when they persecute you in one town, flee to the next for truly I say to you, you will have not gone through all the towns of Israel before the son of man comes on ever we read about persecution in the Bible, which is often as we're reading through the New Testament because it's promised here by Jesus. We need to pause and to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. There are so many in our family. Our brothers and sisters who right now are experiencing this. They're being hated by everyone around them because of their love for Jesus. They're being persecuted and imprisoned and isolated and punished in different ways. They're following Jesus their proclaiming Jesus and it's costing them greatly and the Bible is clear when one part of the body hurts the whole body hurts. So we need to identify with pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are experiencing persecution and at the same time to not be surprised in our own lives wherever we might live and even if we live in a place where there is relative freedom to proclaim the gospel to not shirk back in any way in fear from following Jesus and proclaiming Jesus that we would not be afraid what others might think of us or the risk that following Judas and proclaiming Jesus might be to our reputation to our comfort, maybe in some senses to our jobs that whatever it may cost us that we would faithfully follow Jesus that we would follow in the footsteps of our brothers and sisters in places like North Korea and Somalia and Yemen and parts of India or Afghanistan, Pakistan, God we pray right now for our brothers and sisters. Your sons and daughters are family and these countries in places in the world where they are being persecuted for their faith in you, God we pray for your strength for them. We pray for your help for them. We pray that you end up hold them with your righteous right hand rep you would give them boldness to follow you and to proclaim you, even at great cost,

"yemen" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Has had, which has been to resupply Saudi Arabia with weapons meant for defensive purposes, protecting it from attacks by Houthi rebels backed by Yemen on its southern border and the like. And to that end, there are actually was a pretty significant development, the extension of a ceasefire for yet another two months in Yemen between its war in groups yesterday. The UN welcomed that the U.S. largely responsible for that. And what we've seen limited progress on truly finding sort of a comprehensive long-term agreement to end this lengthy war in Yemen, a ceasefire there is something that the U.S. is going to applaud because of how important that is for the humanitarian situation of its 30 million residents, most of which live below the poverty line and many of which are suffering from hunger, continually, even after so many years. Well, it certainly the G 7 price cap is also going to be called into play with it. China, Taiwan, U.S. tripartite of angst. To Kuwait, you've got the emir that are dissolving parliament were waiting for the next rhyme to have elections. How would you describe the state of politic? Yeah, this dissolution of parliament, the establishment of a new government earlier in the week. And then a late last month, the appointment of a new prime minister, all of these things really on our way, getting us on our way to this next round of elections in Kuwait, likely to happen within the next two months. But I would point you to some of what was said by The Crown prince who dissolved parliament and when he did it. He said this is to rectify the political scene and to rectify behavior that undermines national unity. There have been all these sorts of threats thrown out about how significant the political deadlock is in terms of standing in the way of Kuwait's progress of its economic health. Remember Kuwait, the government can't issue more government debt at this point. We're looking at the outstanding bonds it has. I lose for several years against overall benchmarks. So there is a sort of sense here that there is a serious economic problem being caused by this political deadlock, but you know, I think it's going to take us several more months to see whether or not the parliament that we actually get after those next round of elections can do anything to kind of spin us forward and take us past this moment of this political dysfunction. It's getting very tiring these elections in Kuwait and the disillusion of parliament. It's almost like quarterly earnings now. Every three months. Let's get to economics. We'll get the latest read on inflation data in turkey. What's expected there? We expect inflation to yet again, go higher. Over 80% a year on year basis in July this time. Every analyst believes that we'll see that number top out over 80%. But exactly how much is kind of the question here. And the concern is rom capital pointed out is that inflation essentially gets to a point where it's out of control amid the monetary policy that we're seeing. And this is of particular interest when we look at the markets right now to the corporate sector. We've seen a lot of complaints from various industrialists and companies recently far more than we typically get about the cost of doing business for one. There's distress in some of the largest corporate bonds. For example, the second largest telecom provider in turkey is seeing its bonds move into distressed territory this week. $16 billion worth of corporate debt is due by May 2024. Then we're also watching companies complain about the late rates at which they're seeing in order to borrow making business much more difficult for them. That's kind of the area we're paying most attention to, even though we're watching these sort of stunning numbers and the Turkish lira flirting with 18 to the U.S. dollar. And that's something we continue to see within all economists really expecting inflation to continue to move higher. Okay, so thank you very much. Great round up some old folks when they had

"yemen" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"Seven years into the war in yemen the situation is as bleak fighting continues between the who these a group of shia rebels and forces loyal to the government backed by saudi arabia. Government forces have been pushed back to merab the last big city in the north still under their control only airstrikes. Saudi arabia are slowing the who these advance an advance. that's only worsening of grinding humanitarian crisis. The united nations said that millions are set to go hungry this year. Humanitarian situation in yemen is fully off a cliff with more than twenty million yemenis needing humanitarian assistance. And on monday there. Special envoy called for an urgent ceasefire. The continuation of military activities in several parts of the country including river is undermining in my view. The prospect of peace in your it puts lives of millions of risks and this needs to end but is unlikely. The fight for marriage is just the latest front in a long and bruising war with peace nowhere in sight the hutu rebels who already control already of much of northern yemen have got within about four kilometers of the last stronghold of the yemeni government. Which is mario northeast. Nicholas pelham is our middle east correspondent. They suffered a few losses. They've been pushed back by science strikes. But they're still determined to press on and the killing is extensive observers. Say it's a bit like trench warfare. The loss of life is some of the highest has been in the war and this is part of the country. which would be one of the safest mary. But was a place of refuge for many who had been displaced by fighting elsewhere. The size of made it a base for their operations. And we're at a point where saudi arabia and the government would really except to ceasefire and the huskies knowing that calls because they're the ones that are winning and they want the city and as the who these are advancing. What's life like for the people under their control over. Two thirds of the thirty million people live under the rule. The population concentrated in the areas that they control in the northwest and they've really turned that parts of yemen into something of repressive theocracy. Much like the one in iran political opponents and journalists locked up sometimes they've been executed cafes where men and women once mixed of being closed and some of yemen's last remaining jews have been expelled pretty much bringing an end to a three thousand year history of jewish presence in the highlands so people in the of describing it as something akin to a counterrevolution poor peasants come back from battlefields hardened believers there even reeducation camps for adults and what about the humanitarian situation. That we've talked about in yemen so many times before. Saudi arabia has maintained a blockade on the porch. That the who's these control ever since they intervened in the fighting in two thousand fifteen and that's crippled the economy in the north but at the same time the who've he's a compounding the suffering the diverting aid and selling it for profit and the humanitarian situation is really desperate covert is rife the who have ended the rollout of covid nineteen vaccines because they want to control delivery and there's report from february four agencies said that up to four hundred thousand children die of starvation unless there was urgent intervention. But if the who these have been cut off so much how did they find the resources to to wage. This kind of war. It's often the case. When you're under blockade sanctions the winners of the war. Profiteers and the of turn into war profiteers park salons they're not paying salaries accepted themselves and their fighters the smugglers taking fuel from ports and the staff there were checkpoints these customers posts which raise more revenue and iran is modeling significant volumes of weapons and components to the who these and is providing supply parts for their drones missiles. And that's according to a un panel of experts some incredibly amid the starvation. There's a real estate boom their new glamorous malls and this just a massive disparity of wealth and poverty and now you say meredith is is a focus of the conflict if it were taken by the who house significant military game with that beat easing control of marriage would give the who these control of the north sunni oil refinery. It would be the gateway to the oilfields in the eastern south. There are some that argue that once. The who have myra they'd stop there and negotiate a settlement with the saudis and the former yemeni government. But the others say no. That candidate have the fuel in the finance to keep going. They'd feel the wind was in their sales of pro government. Coalition would be demoralized. It will lose its last base in the north and so there are real questions about with the government itself could survive at all. it's leadership is in exile. Yemeni soldiers complain about unpaid salaries and the lack of arms and the rest of the country. Which is supposed to be under. The number of role of the government is fragmenting. There's a separatist movement. Called the southern transitional cancel and though it's as part of the coalition some in that council see the defeated. The government is possible win for them because they believe they could actually strike out for complete separation of the size for the north and rid themselves of nominal unity which the government represents so. You're really talking about a situation in which the government is already on. Its last legs and could collapse altogether. You mentioned that. Iran is providing weapons to the who.

"Problems to improve lives today and benefit future generations. More information at Walton family foundation dot org's It's Morning edition on W. N. Y C a Michael Hill. New housing developments in the city require a certain amount of parking for cars nearby or on site. But a new development coming to Sunset Park Brooklyn, is requiring onside parking for working cyclists. I believe in my see Stephen Nessen reports Sunset Park has been the site of fierce battles over new developments and gentrification. So when developers proposed a 14 story residential and commercial building at the site of a local Dunkin Donuts on Fourth Avenue The community board came up with a unique requirement. Secure bike parking for the delivery workers of the neighborhood. You're going to have 100 plus spaces above a subway station. To lock your bike lock and forget about it. That's Shabbas Stewart, founder and CEO of UNI, the company that makes eye catching, digitally connected bike parking pods. There's already one outside of Brooklyn's Atlantic Terminal and Journal Square in Jersey City. Stuart was brought on board with the Sunset Park developers to think about how his secure bike system could work in a building that sits above a subway station. And in the renderings. The plan is far from your typical bike parking in a dingy basement, the greenery to seethe wall, stop carefully through to see the skylight to see you know the screens that have the transit arrival times, right? Have the by Lingle's, You know displays. Stewart says 33% of the spots will be reserved for free for working cyclists in Sunset Park delivery workers, particularly ones that rely on expensive $2000 e bikes for their jobs. Risk theft or worse. In East Harlem, a delivery worker recently refused to give up his e bike and was fatally shot for Stuart. His bike storage is a way to protect vulnerable New Yorkers who may lose work if they lose their bike. For some, this is a matter of can I feed my family? Can I send money back home? You know, I don't want to say that bike parking is life and death. But this is going to be a facility that allows people to safeguard their livelihoods. It's a great idea. According to Glen D. C tourists in organizer with lost delivery steps you need us, which advocates for working cyclists. But she says delivery workers need secure places to leave their bikes all over the five boroughs will be great. You have faces like that entire silly, but this is not a case. The city currently has 56,000 parking spots for bikes, not nearly enough to meet the demand that grew during the pandemic. When the founders about Stuart hopes future developments in the city will be required to include secure, accessible bike parking on sight, Just like the one coming to Sunset Park, Stephen Nessen w N. Y C news Morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm No. Well, King. Good morning. Now we have a look at the city of mar up in Yemen. It is a place that illustrates just how difficult it is to pursue a peace deal in that country. Here's NPR's Ruth Sherlock. It's me, Hamas. You must let me a scone, Hallie and human units. Mama's almost to me is the first year medical student in the city of Mara been northern Yemen. When we reach her by phone, she tells us in recent years, this was one of the safest places to be here spends about ash, my friends and I could go out. Enjoy places go to parks walk around together. These days, though the people of Ma robe terrified Yemen's Houthi rebels are advancing on the city on the front line is now just a few miles away, Honey, come on. We hear the war, Houthi drones fly over us and more than once they've hit inside the city and in residential neighborhoods, women and Children have died. A little background on the war. The Houthi is captured Yemen's capital saner in 2015, Saudi Arabia, then intervened militarily because it was an ally of that government. And the Ruthie's were backed by Saudis. Regional rival Iran. The U. S supported Saudis efforts with equipment and intelligence, Mara remained under government control. The Saudis poured money into the city, and it became a hub for their operations. Refugees took shelter there. The province even built a new soccer stadium and university. Now. Mattie Mohammed, a resident of married who works for the Center Center for Strategic Studies think tank, says the fact that the Houthi is now threatened. The city shows just how badly the US backed Saudi intervention in Yemen has gone silent. Well what, of course Saudi has failed. The Houthis now control even more of Yemen and they have the upper hand. They now have drones that they used to attack inside Saudi Arabia. Some of those attacks has had to be with Iranian made weapons. Saudi Arabia says This highlights why it's important for it to be in the war in Yemen, trying to keep an Iranian backed group off its border. But Peter Salisbury, a senior Yemen and list of the International Crisis Group, says, if anything, the Saudi intervention in the war has only deepened Iran's involvement with Ruthie's in Yemen because they've been so successful. Who these air much more attractive proposition to Iran now than they were even six years ago. Salisbury says Saudi Arabia failed to unite an effective coalition against the Ruthie's. It's the hooches against this really fragmented, complex group off local actors who have kind of in premature of the government on them, he says, though, that the Houthi is will still have trouble taking Marty up. Many of those defending the area and then from local tribes who reject the Houthi is politics and different religious beliefs. This is gonna be a long, really messy fight, he says. For the Ruthie's, even just keeping up the fight familiarity. It demoralizes the Saudi backed factions and puts the Ruthie's in a stronger negotiating position for peace talks. President Biden has promised to use diplomacy to end the war in Yemen, but the battle for Morrow may still have a long way to go.

And biden's plus jaren politically is for me also meaningless because in our he's on one hand saying when no longer going Saudi aggression but we will defend saudi arabia against russia and literally.

The united states united arab emirates and the uk so the few countries that are effectively raping and pillaging yemen ones supposedly providing the humanitarian relief. I mean this is this is this is the real world equivalent of invested of ourselves. Not guilty right. It's quite extraordinary. And what was really interesting is when you tool to yemeni. Officials is the death of their understanding of the corruption within these organizations and the tation of these organizations to fed the political agenda political agendas of the countries that are controlling. This humanitarian relief. Right an you know. He went on to say that basically the un must provide political megyn support for for for these nations because as we said in two thousand sixteen. Saudi arabia was put on the blacklist. The minute that it's working to israel laying. It was taken off the blacklist again. Where do we see that. All side with israel of course And then are so the un also. This is an important point. It tried to transfer the yemeni central bank from sun up to and of course auden is effectively under the control of the formation saudi arabia. Uae which we know.

I think they see it very much that The leverage thing have and he told me that basically the saudis are who are enraged. That modern is being liberated from the across have basically sides are or issued a warning or a threat that eighth mata is fully taken. they will destroy the oilfields. The ans- ruler responses being okay. Well then we'll stop targeting onkar. We'll start talking to your fields and they know that very breakers. I mean they've been doing it in the last couple of weeks. In other words. I think the thing is historically as soon as saudi stocks to get hurt. You see them. Start pressure on the us. Pull back and you know this is. This is where the yemenis in. My view are having advantage to some degree over syria for example in syria Particularly in the military campaign. It is times hanff by the political process. That is being instigated by russia. Right real that. That's fact went when we remember the liberation of east leper the number of ceasefire as we had because russia was school nights. Or negotiations at blah blah blah. All right so there was a degree of political pressure on the military. Combine yemen doesn't have that pressure from any outside influence. Right our it can basically carry out its military campaign. according to our the yemeni army the yemeni military through military And they the insecure government. So it is relatively free to to maintain military campaign against saudi arabia not in target saudi arabia oil. So at the moment is a bit of style. Night on that. As far as i can see i've also noticed an interesting point there. Is that remember the first time at least that it was very public when when on sorolla had attacked or the the one the one. They tried to blame on iran. that was really publicized. They tried to make it out there on attacking saudi arabia and it was you know they made it out to be like this breathless. We're all about to go to war kind of scenario the same way. They used to do about north korea when they chose to and suddenly things change narrative shifted. The other thing started and that the on rela has has carried out more. I mean what. I think i could remember at least three or four different attacks where they hit targets and not a peep from the mainstream media. Saudi arabia must know that right. So they know that they've lost the favor of being the big danger. You know so. I think that plays a huge factor in to your point again going back to that. Same idea without the support with explicit support of the us government and the us military. I doubt saudis would do anything of the kind. That's just my take on it..

Everybody knows should remember that Excuse me go ahead now gone so. Iq ip basically was allowed again. This is another familiar story right.

Gop returned and flores particularly in the south which is the primary target for the saudi. Yes that's a. That's a very important point that i want my listeners to think about because that's actually something that i'm reasonably new i. I wasn't actually aware of the. I did know that there was a. There's a lotta that happening between the west names that they give groups the name that they actually have. And i wasn't even aware that this was something that was almost rock. Sort of like nicking it out to be like the saudi family name and it's not really democratic or like you say to make it seem that it's just meet know small and that's important. I referenced the who teach because that's how people in the west remember it but and make a habit of using the name that they actually prefer as a group or in any sense. But on what i wanted to ask was in regard to facilitation of that in your based on your research. To what degree would you argue. The al qaeda showing up in yemen was facilitated. Helped along by these western forts which your point was essentially saying. But you know where they just flown over on jets. In your opinion we've seen before or you know how in your research.

The last thing they want is for yemen in in this is their perception to become a satellite state of iran And what osa came out of the more. Recent meeting of course is that the yemenis themselves of developing missile technology Which israel is claiming is threatening for example tel aviv. As far as they're concerned. Laura developing Missile capability to target tel aviv. So again we have you know the the familia israeli argument preemptive aggression in self defense and so whereas before israel was probably a little bit clandestine in support of the saudi coalition although it was a well known fact that it was working together with the saudis and of course with the british and the us in they Control scientists in riyadh. I mean it's well alight that the us and the uk actually designating targets in yemen to be hit by the saudi moments. This was a well nine flapped. One was also involved in That designation of targets of course we the majority of the target says civilians or in civilian infrastructure targets battle. They are committing a crime every time they own yemen effectively. There are not hating most of the time. They're not hitting military targets The us has had troops actually inside yemen. That might come as a bit of a short to some people. Since i think around two thousand seventeen to nineteen the. Us is also moved on patriots. Air defense onto the island of sequoia off the coast of yemen which is under the control of the white why in the uae. And actually as part of the discussion with yemeni buster He told me there are now is ready troops on sikora so this is very much about in the israeli politics. This is about limiting. They arrange potential to target israel And israel is collaborating very closely with the united arab emirates if you remember we talked about the integration of israel into central and within Some think tanks in israel.
