How Does the Russia Ukraine Conflict End?

"Base. Finally, on Ukraine's senator, how does this whole thing end? I'm not sure what we're going to see. My hope is that it is going to end with you crane holding Kyiv and holding their government and pushing back on the Russian troops. What really concerns me on this Larry is now Putin is so distraught over how Ukraine has pushed back on him. Now he's doing soldiers for hire and mercenaries. And of course, Russia Iran, China, North Korea. That is your new axis of evil as I call it. And you've got Russia with their proxies, Hezbollah Hamas Taliban. You've got Putin getting mercenaries, soldiers for out of Syria, out of Laos, out of Yemen. Out of different places and trying to get them to conduct urban combat in Ukraine to me, that is frightening.

"Now going forward, if we don't act, we've calculated that at the moment, already every 9 minute child dies, which is already down from every 12 minutes when we looked at it two years ago. So that's already shows you how it's still going down. We also estimated that by 2030, if the war is to continue, 1.3 million people will have died from direct and indirect consequences. And I think that's a toll that no country would tolerate and I think this is also told international community can not tolerate and we really have to help Yemen is to find hope and find dignity for a better future. Thank you. And speaking about that hope and dignity, you know, you're there in the country and on the ground and meeting with Yemenis. Do they feel that this is possible for their country that these developments can actually be achieved? Well, I've been working in Yemen and on Yemen for the last 5 years or even a little bit more as a matter of fact. And one thing that strikes you when you engage with Yemenis, not only with authorities, but also with communities with women, you know that one thing that really strikes you is really the resilience of many people. Yemen is always known as a resilient country, but when you speak to the people we serve in the country, then it can only give you even more courage even more resilience yourself, the work on that issues and address the challenges of the countries is facing. And that manifests itself in many areas. And specifically also in the projects that we implement in Yemen to help the communities that we work for. I mean, it's just amazing. We have, for example, a woman that became overnight, one of the most hundred influential women chosen by BBC. And what she did was basically empowering communities through micro solar grades in the community and really serving a lot of households there..

"I think of banking and finance is a good way includes the will becoming more transactional. Yeah when when. I grew up my mom and dad to go into the bank of reweight. Bank the patriot. Yo by that used to have to go to the bank every week. Get cash Yet this year that's long gone as many generations of technology that that have come along but is the bank managing you every single one of the customers by nice again Over time your so. We go through numerous now to the point where we'll right now and it what's happened in the code will in many parts of the world was young pool with you know seeing some of our big banking clients on a regular devices and people thought that pre cover that they had pretty high penetration rights of iran on smartphones. But guess what they went through the roof last year could banks because all of a sudden the banking completely Spliced retail bank The the the that that evolving competitive sh- paradigm shift between the banks and the digital banks and the traditional banks. We saw we actually is to become a stop become one So net will you. People have stopped yemen. This was something. I your head really thought about to be honest but i still into co own australian bank couple of weeks ago and Cash handling has plummeted one of the big reasons to have a retail retail branch which is cash handling a type of people. Don't wanna handle keishi anymore aside. We've move money as become eletronic Yeah and look. I obviously haven't traveled use the last twelve months. I mean in the in the us. Yo you can't go anywhere without a dollar bill but but literally The amount of cash physical cash in circulation this changing so these signs of some of the macro trends that again to emerge for of banking for retailing The consumer good as we stopped move forward into the future. I think of the rise of e-trade is an interesting example. Here before e-trade came up no one would think about buying stocks without a broker with. They had a personal relationship with charles. Schwab was popular. But you would call somebody place the order for you and what we see now is stock trading. There is no human behind it made if we look. Robin hood is sorta z. A perfect example of the next phase of that but you know obviously two generations past banking since then obviously with the kick in the pants from ed even accelerated that process which has been underway for twenty years. But i think you're drawing an interesting thesis here that every industry is going towards that same evolution. It's just the question is how far behind banking are they. Are they right behind banking and that they're going to this more high transactional relationship versus high relational interaction or are they. Are they a few years. Do they have a little time before. That really takes. Hold look I think every industry is every industry is having to think in in the in the world we live in today is having to figure out how mun digital impacts every aspect of business. Today i mean with me ultimately. We are in enterprise software. We sell solutions to begin prize. But i've got a. I've got a lad sales organization in the us and that that now selling to Yeah the now selling to Your c. level executives in big corporations Your enterprise selling young for my whole career has been about face to face interaction and building a relationship of this was a huge paradigm shift for you know for the industry And even in a business to business sick that the implications of digital the will we live in a having a real life impact on a day-to-day vice already You will learn about the efficiencies of being able to conduct more business.

"I'm deanne penn with u. n. news when david grassley the un resident and humanitarian coordinator for yemen called for three point. Eight five billion dollars from international donors to avoid a point of no return in march. He said that yemen can't wait. Five months on some two billion dollars has been received averting the immediate risk of famine but leaving significant gaps in desperately needed areas such as health care during a visit to un headquarters. A few days ago mr gresley spoke to un uses khanna lennon about the current humanitarian situation in yemen and the impact the cloven nineteen pandemic continues to have across the war-torn nation. We've fortunately been able to get enough. Funding coming in particularly in april may june period to to stop the march towards a famine. And we through. Wfp we were able to increase the directions back to where they should be where they were in two thousand nineteen to full ration so that We could stop that move to to famine. So we've taken a step. We were step away now. We've taken a step back but it's fragile and it needs to be sustained if we're not to lose the grounds that we've just gained but as as you said this little funding gap compared to what you were hoping to achieve. That is correct. We've received approximately two point one billion dollars so far which is better than the pledges that we actually receive back in march but well short of the total requirements. We've now seen last Last week additional pledges of approximately six hundred million so it gets us a little bit closer And all of those materialized probably can get us through on the food security side and the nutrition side but there are massive gaps in other areas. That just aren't touched yet. Health education water sanitation protection Support for radicalization of landmines unexploded ordinance all of that still very badly underfunded. Eighty eighty five percent unfunded and in terms of health situation. I mean it wasn't longer resource. Some terrible pigs of children that were very upsetting for many people. Has that situation changed it. Stabilized liked the food security situation. That has better stabilized at this point in So we've been able to reach those children at risk but once again it's very fragile And that funding needs to continue through the end of this year into twenty twenty two and we need to start preparing for that for that push for more funding in the coming year. Now the the wars in its seventh year the additional complication if you will is of course the covered nineteen pandemic. How big a difference is that made..

Face ongoing hunger and manyi attrition. we drove hundreds of kilometers through dry riverbeds eventually climbing up the loss. You hundred meters to reach the isolated hillside village community of washer sky. Alex crawford traveled to yemen to investigate. What's going on inside the country. We all the first foreigners to reach here. The first outsiders to investigate an attack here and see what happened on the ground here. An airstrike wrought. Terrible damage reducing one home to rubble. Within seconds inside it was packed with women and children from the majali family who were gathering for lunch nine. P. advocate instantly six of them children and to look at. How corona virus has compounded the challenges faced by those trying to save lives before. We speak to alex. That teams producer in yemen was off mid beta so my role as an us producer. I am the one who create An to help to create the story to coordinate to get the visas an all of the logistics for the team to enter the country. As we know yemen now is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. So if i were focused nowadays is about the humanitarian stories and also to talk more about the war and about how we can create peace in the future for yemenis. We tried to explain to the people all around the world. What is the situation in yemen. And how how. Yemeni people are really suffering from this unmerciful. Unmerciful war yemen. We always call it a news the forgotten war. It's not forgotten because news news agencies or news outlets they don't want to go it's for him because it's very difficult to go to they would. There are a lot of barriers that we face. The logistics are very difficult. I gonna take ages to get visas to oppress visas to enter the country. Unfortunately all of the parties fighting man not happy with media to be inside the country. Because i think media is the eyewitness media real media is the one that will will tell the world what's going on the ground so it's all happening very difficult to bring you know journalists since two thousand eighteen until today i mean they can count you the clues that we worked with any yemen from two thousand eighteen and today you can count them with your fingers. This is not journalism it's it has been difficult for journalists to enter the country. It has been difficult to arrange the logistics to enter. The country has lived through the continuing conflict everytime covers what is was journalists with tv crews. Whatever every time. I go to a place. It's getting worse and worse and it's because in yemen there are authorities. I've been governmental authorities like teachers doctors or whatever they didn't have since two years now there are. We don't have electricity for the firefighters northern yemen. We don't have water. We don't have any basic needs. It's cutting course on wars and when we say family and it's not because we don't have food i always say this to journalists because people can't afford food people can't afford transportation you know. Doctors can't go towards they have solar is also they don't even though they have they go to. War can treat people imagine now we add medal of the new invisible enemy as we head covered. Nineteen is like how how how we will survive. I mean covert. My dean destroyed the bis health infrastructure from all around the world. How would it be to you know to a country that it's after structure has already destroyed when i went with alex crawford team to the hospital where we suppose. I'm into the clinic in northern yemen in to see the malnutrition kits usually when we arrive to these kinds of clinics. We usually find ten twenty thirty. Or let's say maximum forty but that time when we arrived with alex grover. It was the worst time i saw with my eyes. They had more than ninety malnourished kids inside that clinic so it was horrible. it was catastrophic. You can tell that the kids were very skinny people You know screaming and crying at suddenly when we were admitted and our work when we were reporting one of the children died. I mean just in front of our eyes. It was horrible at. It was a bad moment to hair mothers crying. Would she does young son. You know why all of this people should know. This people not should stop viscaya us. We should do something to help. Yemeni people i mean. Many people are very kind are very hospital. We have a rich country with a very beautiful country. Everyone good surprise when they arrive to the country with with the beautiful mountains and nice beaches but a nice people that always finding even though. They are really suffering and injured from their insight. So we have to do something to stop this and to help this innocent babies who dies. Every day he witnesses. The devastation caused and feels the pain in jordan. By so many. I mean you still see people leaving the normal healthy people know. Try to go. You know to to cope with the situation. But to be honest i think every every person in yemeni safi. It's not just a direct suffering either from the blockade from many reasons but everyone is suffering in this country. You know that. I live in santa. The capital city of sanaa in yemen on. They closed the airport since four years. Now i mean. We have airports if i want to travel outside of yemen. I need to drive twelve hours to.

Asylum Seekers or Economic Migrants? With Former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan

"Let's talk about who these people because this isn't really discussed with so is we accept so many people land of immigrants so let. Let's be clear who's coming across the border. My this. this is personal to me. My parents were actual. Refugees got asylum status. Why because my father was liberated from a communist prison where he had been put there for his beliefs not committing a crime but for believing that communism was bad. He was on a shoot to kill list if he was captured. After the hungarian revolution he wasn't going back to prison. He was going to be executed in the street so when he escaped with his seventeen year. Old future live in the refugee camp. After six weeks of interrogation by counterintelligence offices he was given refugee asylum status which is given to those who wear the for religious political or other reasons will be allowed to stay in that country because otherwise they would die. Ob persecuted if they return in the hundreds of thousands of people across the border. Are these people mark. Morgan asylum seekers with refugee status. No they're economic migrants. Your your listeners. Need to pay attention. What you just said you're spot on asylum asylum is if you're a victim of state-sponsored persecution because of your religious beliefs or your your membership in a protected class your political affiliation. That's what asylum it's not for economic conditions. So look i got. You may live and in some harsh economic conditions. And i've got you may live in a city where there's general violence god and that's not good but that is not a balance island quite this administration knows it. Ninety percent of silent claims are invalid and found to at the end receive a court order removal and they know that but they're still encouraging illegal immigration. And who's coming. Is it old mexico. Guatemala and on tourists whose combat she. That's another false narrative of out there. Look this is why we say. It's not just about our public safety. It's also about our national security right now on average border to apprehend illegal aliens from one hundred forty different countries. It's two hundred in the world guys.

I'm excited about how much i can learn from them. So i have a lot of questions and a few theories to test. I want to get your opinion on a few but before we delve into that that stock about you having grown up in east africa how do you think the culture there has shaped your worldview and before we talk about that. What was the culture like growing up. Was i only have fond memories of the place. It was a very mixed place. Ethnically linguistically inclusionary culinary terms Because you had all kinds of people it would if you just sticking with the salt agents for the moment of course small minority minority in east africa as a whole you know you had people from all the way from the top to the bottom. Bit of the western indian coastline. You had people speaking different languages with different religious identities and different traditions and will look different from each other. And then of course you had other migrant krupes from arabia from the arabian peninsula. So oman. which ruled is on the bar and some parts of the east african coast in from the towards the end of the eighteenth century into the nineteenth early twentieth. You had people from yemen and then of course you had you know. African operations came to be known as african racially But who were comprised of many different groups with many different languages and traditions again. So it was very mixed.

"And it might be perfect but it certainly an improvement and starting to rebuild communities. Now not delay that way. I think that yemenis. We'll have something to defend something to aspire to. Can you give an example or two of a truly grassroots civil society effort from yemenis that has had some success in the last few years. Well i guess ella from some works that i support in the east of yemen which is tiny it says really very grassroots but but you know it could be rolled out it has been successful. It's it's a program for peacebuilding amongst children. The aims trying to get them to think about problems from other people's perspectives. I guess what we might call and see but if you've got a problem how do you sold it by looking at it with another tribal points-of-view roses and just picking up. He's gone on solving it. And we're using a lot of local what we call facilitators half of them women and getting them into twenty six schools or even just tents where locals can gather and getting kids to do really thumb activities incredibly interactive and. They absolutely love it. Everyone's involved and they all starting to think about taking a bit more responsibility about. Hey listen if. I want to get to this place walter the steps. I need to do to get that. How can i help. How can i help to build peace. And how can. I help to break the cycle of violence. So i'm taking little initiatives like that. I think with an incredibly long way. One of the problems is that finding these initiatives is difficult because once you've got a website international proposal in with one of the big aid agencies english-speakers political contacts old right certificates. The chops is all your way up the corruption scale. So you know we. We need to make better contacts on the ground through what i have. Committee called coordination committee in east of yemen which tries to seek these things out and then try to build them up so in short working with existing local grassroots initiatives roses and trying to parachute in brilliant ideas for a broad alex. Let's wrap this up with your take on that initiative in in a larger sense. Let's paint a positive picture. Which is some of those grassroots efforts. Let's do take hold. They they do expand they do. Share best practices across the country. Maybe the us representative or the un special envoy does reach some kind of understanding if not a breakthrough with several of the. Party's maybe they just get tired of fighting for increasingly small amounts of territory. Let's look forward six months or a year. What do you think is the reasonable best case scenario. We could be seeing in yemen. Your question about Civil society efforts also reminded me of the yemen. Feminist peace convening which was held in just a few weeks ago which brought together yemeni civil society leaders and members of the international community. And they're working on building a roadmap towards peace which incorporates elements. not just a ceasefire. Which of course is important..

"Us security partners than they were about what was happening in yemen per se so the us had been involved fairly extensively in counterterrorism operations in the past in yemen. It's not as though the us hadn't been involved at all but the engagement with this conflict began with that. Saudi led coalition intervention that us officials decided to provide support to you. In part of the rationale was that they thought they could help the coalition particularly in terms of their strikes but also in terms of their operations more generally to have more precision to help them to avoid civilian casualties to boost their capabilities. That kind of thing. So since the intervention started in two thousand fifteen though coalitions air campaign has has been really notable for having a high number of civilian casualties and for these notorious incidents where they have hit civilian targets including a large funeral. A school bus full of children. For example really you know frankly awful strikes that the coalition didn't really have a good explanation for why that had happened and so in the final year of the obama administration in two thousand sixteen. We do know now that. Us officials were increasingly worried about the strikes from an ethical perspective of course but also because they worried that us officials could even be implicated in war crimes and so they had tried to work with the coalition to bring down civilian casualties. That didn't really seem to be working. And so they instead sort of pivoted to a plan of putting more pressure on the the coalition publicly especially after that large funeral airstrike and that included putting a hold on a planned arm sale of precision guided munitions. But that kind of went out the window. When the trump administration came into office and essentially trump had a much warmer relationship with the leadership of saudi arabia in the uae was more concerned about that relationship and about arm sales than it was about yemen and so many would say they essentially gave a green light to the coalition to continue so at the same time though the trump administration did come under increasing pressure from the us public as well as a members of congress and activist specifically and not really intensified after the murder of journalist. Jamal kashogi in late. Two thousand eighteen and so right after that the us did officially end aerial refueling for the coalition. In the summer of two thousand nine hundred nine the uae started draw down most of its own forces in yemen although it is still involved through its proxies and through its relationships with groups on the ground and i think saudi arabia also kind of started see the war as described meyer. That was costly in kind of increasingly unwinnable. Thank you. let's update that we do have a new administration in. We've seen something that we haven't seen much in. Us history which is an incoming president prominently talking about yemen in making a a speech that had helping to resolve the conflict in yemen and change the dynamics there a central part of it Talk a little bit about the emerging biden policy towards yemen. And any successes up till now. We'll talk in a few minutes about ways to position for the future but any successes or failures up till now just in these first few months of the administration. So i think it's actually important to understand all of that background that i just gave in order to understand what the biden administration has done because when president biden made the announcement at his first foreign policy related speeches president in february like you mentioned that really prominently featured yemen which was kind of surprising and exciting. That really marked. I would say a fairly significant shift in the us approach and think maybe some of that has been forgotten now more than five months or so later but the way that both previous administrations had engaged is different than what the binding administration is doing. So biden said that the united states would end us military support for the coalition and specifically offensive military support. Which is important. Because the united states will still engage in what the administration deems to be defense of support in support of saudi arabia defending itself against a who the attacks for example it has ended some arm sales but has led some others. Go through for example. It hasn't completely cut off support and at the same time..

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. What about other international powers. What have they been doing. The united arab emirates which was allied with the saudis in trying to initially property yemeni government. Pull that most of its forces in two thousand nineteen the saudis themselves into now consider yemen to something of a trap. they've unintentionally enhanced iranian influence and strengthened. The who when they intended to do the opposite there are missile drone attacks on saudi cities and installations airports which the who these carrying out and even rating inside inside rare itself and so muhammad bin salman and they facto ruler of saudi arabia and the crown prince has reached out to the who faces appeal to them to join him at the negotiating table. And then you have the americans. Joe biden stronger line. Vis-a-vis saudi intervention in the fighting than his predecessor also stepping up. Our diplomacy end the war in yemen war which is created humanitarian strategic catastrophe. He's pledged to stop offensive themselves to saudi arabia. This war has to end and to underscore our commitment. We're ending all american support for offensive operations in the war in yemen including relevant arm sales and then last february. The american administration removed from that list of terrorist organizations. They've said that they will increase the flow of aid. They've also made efforts to kick start the peace process. But is that peace process. Going to happen. It doesn't look very promising the moment it's not going to be easy to bring the parties to some form of resolution mars defenders and most of its inhabitants to test the who and they rejected their religious beliefs. The open ground around. Mario makes it hard to penetrate the city. Saudi jets of bombarding the advance and at the same time. Yemen is increasingly part of a bigger picture of talks between iran and america. About what detente and the region would look like and until that's resolved the iranians likely to continue to treat yemen as a negotiating card so years into this conflict. Now there they're still no relief in sight for the people of yemen savvy. This is already the poorest country in the middle east. it's been ravaged by over seven years of fighting and and it just feels as if this war has a lot longer to run before besides can finally lay down.

"yemen" Discussed on Ron Paul Liberty Report

"Hello everybody thank you for tuning in to deliberately report with today's Daniel Make Adams Daniel C morning. How are you this morning Dr Paul doing very well? Thank you and I'm trying to figure out what things I'm going to say positive. I'm looking for and we want to talk about Yemen. Maybe there there is a twinge of something positive. They are because we've mentioned Yemen war that we've been involved with and allied with Israel and Saudi Saudi Arabia and so But it looks like looks like there's been a change and the word that came to me when we were thinking about Schizophrenia policy because all of a sudden you know after all these years all these justifications been going on for more than that kid I think the first time I was was really criticized on national. TV was more than ten years. Ago Because Ah We were. We were close to what was going on there but there's been what they call a proxy war was our policy Republican or Democrat. The proxy war was all Ryan's fault. They sent him in there. They caused all the trouble and that was the justification for our our help our military assistance and the bombing. And all these things going on. There's been attempt because there's there's individuals now. Hopefully a lot of Americans awaken the put pressure on our congressman. They tried tried to cut off money for this and this spring This past spring there was some money in or they passed the bill and Ah Trump vetoed. He wasn't going to cut off this war and Rubio said don't you dare do that or I'll get you so they put money back in and in the money in the NBA. Just recently there was a There was a restriction on the money and yet in the conference and we talked about this. It's just put the money back in so it's an on again off again but all of a sudden today the policy is changed in this case. in the right direction. But I don't think they've all of a sudden become non interventionists libertarians. But we'll take we'll take it anyway. We can get it so today. It is said that trump's change the position that It is not a trump poxy war and therefore in this case ace we. We don't have to support this war so there's things going on at the same time they did mention in the releasing the administration still takes the position. That doesn't mean it around off the hulk so we're still going to surround them with about hundred nukes you and you know just in case they attack us so so anyway this is different. It's changes and it's amazing. How facts can change so quickly you know I was? It's A. It's not a proxy war. So did they quit becoming a proxy war or could we be a little bit nutty on our foreign policy of course for me. The foreign policy is very consistently wrong complex. I think you could make a comparison. To how how many factions there are between what has been going on in Yemen and Syria and even Afghanistan. All these places once we disrupt things you know you have different factions coming out looking for an opportunity to gain power but right now it's shifting and there's several reasons suggest just why this has happened. Yeah and the what we're talking about. We saw this first on antiwar dot com. which is a great early morning? Stop for people but Brian Hook. WHO's the US special representative for Iran? I'd probably call him the US special representative for war on Iran and more accurately. But this is the shift in policy you know. This is a statement he made just recently. He said quote Iran clearly does not speak for the WHO tease nor has the best interest of the Yemeni people. At heart Iran is trying to prolong Yemen civil war to to project power and within all of the fire-breathing in that sentence is a big shift. Because here's what he said. In September Iran is controlling and deploying doing the WHO tease as a terror front. So it goes from the fact that basically who teasers zombies of Tehran to all of a sudden the Iran is not really that much involved in. So you'd say well is this a wake up call. They find they wake up and smell the coffee and see reality. You know when we feel optimistic we'd like to think that however we have a cynical side in my guess is that what's more responsible for. This shift is that the Saudis are getting. The pants. beat off of them by these. These you know tribal people in Yemen who tease And they're trying to sue for peace. Urban secret talks. There've been open talks. Talks are ongoing The Saudis are losing this war unfortunately as they lose that take thousands and thousands of more innocent civilians with them in direct bombing and then fan I and Yemen truly one of the world's greatest probably the world's greatest humanitarian catastrophe all done by the Saudis with our backing still. They're losing which goes to the The wrong poll theory. which is when you're fighting for your homeland? You're going to fight harder and so I think it's really the US still covering for the Saudis giving them some cover for trying to extricate themselves this. Yeah and I'm glad you bring up that word because that's exactly why I'm thinking here. Is that once again on. The people defending their homeland can win and they frequently do win. It's a long tedious job. And it's very expensive but that's why we're still at war for eighteen years and maybe we'll surrender Our efforts in Afghanistan. It looks like they're gonNa have to because you know the evidence now is so terrible about about how ridiculous that whole war has been. So this is I think. I think it's good news that this is happening and that the homeland people people does that mean. It's going to be smooth sailing. No but there's you know there's tribalism in this country to it's sort of like the tribalism of of Afghanistan and so it's a way of life in this whole idea that people from the United States and Europe know exactly what to do with the Middle East and these tribal areas and tell them exactly what to do and generally it's resented just as it would we would resent it is if somebody came and and told us we had to change our our society and even a little bit of a hint at change in our society can arouse strong feeling. But this is this this to me is as evidence that something significant change. I think the bombing I think it was in September. Two debt There was a bombing of and it really cut into the production of oil and Saudi Saudi Arabia and one hundred percent the argument one hundred percent. Sure that the Iranians did it now. Maybe they did maybe not they. He didn't do it so but we do know that. The Iranians have sympathies for For people who in Yemen. But that's sort of a of a natural natural thing because Saudi Arabia and around never got along well together but I think the The the greater amount of aggression comes from Saudi Arabia. You know in this war is unpopular in the US. I think the reason we shouldn't be naive. The reason why the Senate and the House There are few principal people there. But the reason why they took up this issue is because it is so grotesque the genocide is so grotesque The images of the children starving are so horrific that they've been pressured to do something finally and it is unpopular Americans like to believe that. Were only out there. Doing good unfortunately are a little naive but the line was always on the neo conspirators like they spread the lives for the Iraq war and so on that Iran is fighting a proxy against Saudi Arabia and Israel and Yemen and therefore for the good of humanity. We've gotta go in there. And of course for trump is good because has he sold a lot of weapons but you know the national interest article that was linked from the antiwar article reminds us first of all. It reminds us of why wikileaks is hated so much. Which and why they continue to try to kill? Julian assange because we know from those embassy cables that wikileaks leaked to us that the US government government privately believed that the Yemen hootie problem was created by Saudi Arabia not by Iran. The then ambassador in two thousand than seven said before the overthrow the Yemen government claims the WHO wants to set up a regime modelled on Iran. This is unclear. Hootie statements and military operations have focused on control of North Yemen where they have tribal alliances. And here's another cable. That was was leaked. Deputy Chief of mission at the. US Embassy in Yemen wrote at the time that the Hutus were being stirred up by an influx of Saudi backed. Sectarian suny any preachers so the Saudis were starting things up by sending in all these radical preachers radical Sunni preachers who are not soon either a form of Shia and so they're disrupting. The Saudis disrupting the internal balance of the country. And that's what happened. who weren't trying to take over the country they had an alliance with with their With the tribes in the north and this is what we talked about yesterday with Afghanistan. We we refuse to look at the world in a different way than we look at our own self. There are not a monolith. The government's this is a tribal thing you know not. There's not much mention of Oman Omen and and yet they might. It played a role in this and in softening the hostilities. Because I think they have been doing some talking with Saudi Arabia and they might have been able to soften this because you don't you don't hear much about them being militarily involved but it was in their interests they they live in the territory territory. They're they're part of the neighborhood and it would be a plus to see somebody like that. Maybe maybe helping to bring you no peace in this area but When you have people going six thousand miles away and supporting supporting Governments like the Saudi government. And it it just makes no sense and I still think that word schizophrenia. where the way we switch around one minute you know? We're spoiling the next minute we switch and and I keep thinking about You Know How many times do the Kurds have to switch as not so much schizophrenia. But our policy is schizophrenic. Because because we're we're one time giving support to a group than we were holder support and this one. This one is rather dramatic. I I don't recall any any any change in policy. This just dramatic but some people are saying well. You know they don't get too excited. Don't overly cheer because Yes it's not their proxy war but they're still bad guys and you know this sort of thing and there may well be you know I don't think all of the Potential Chew animal studies between the individuals including Iran They have an interest in there. So it's probably it's probably somewhere in between knew that the Iranians caused everything which we don't believe or that there will be Nothing at all. I think it would be normal for them. I'm to have an interest so all we need to do. Daniel is send over a pamphlet. Redes- Pamphlet I wanNA tell you about non intervention and while you're y y your tribal organization the way you have your country. It should be legal in a free society. Why do people have to pass through you? And you don't pay anybody anybody else or anybody else should be pestering you but that's too complicated matter to have this. Simplicity have six or eight groups because because selling weapons and and people who don't deserve power or other people would know what to do. They didn't have these options so It's it's just not popular with the authoritarian and the the people who are making money in this is really goes to the core of what's wrong with US foreign policy because the so-called experts birds are incapable of digesting a very simple concept which is that other nations act according to their own perceived or objectively real national interests those might not always be in line with the US national interest and that diplomacy is how you reconcile those two differences potential differences so the US can never conceptualize that someone else's acting according to a national interest completely separate Mars. And I say this because you've mentioned Oman and that's an important point because Oman is trying to be a kind of peace broker in this war. Not because they woke up one morning and decided that they they WanNa be the local peacemakers. Something actually more fundamental and probably more healthy. They're doing business with Iran they share a big natural gas deposit. Is it between the two of them. And it's Iran and Oman's interest to not have this conflict in the region because they both Wanna make some money and do well and build up countries so this is the reason. They're acting according to their national interest. Amman Andy Iran. In trying to tamp this thing down get this war. Over so they can build some pipelines is self some gas and get back to normal is another part that we frequently mentioned and that is the lack of education that enters enters into the minds of the people who run our foreign policy. He never learned. You know these the same thing. Some people say well no. They don't really want to learn. They have this motivation. The the perpetual war is a benefit and they have their reason but there are many other though just never give up their locked in and they they say that you. Oh you know we have to do more like there were. There were people who wanted that war in Vietnam for various reasons but a lot of them didn't I didn't like the idea of America Losing War we're supposed to bring goodness in greatness to these countries and so therefore they get locked in on it and the only reason they they never look at possibly Air In judgment. They just said we didn't give him enough and we hear that too. I mean we've heard it in. You know dealing with Afghanistan and Iraq. I say you know. We're losing Iraq. We're going to gain any of them. As far as I'm concerned is not going to likely happen. But they they don't learn from it but the big big thing is just stupidity. I think it is on some part Ignorance because they don't know what's going on in for others. Their interests are served by the perpetuation of constant war. Yeah it builds a lot of mansions in DC. And you know we. We started out talking about this. Why is this shift and I think they and you mentioned the September missile attack on the Saudi oil facilities and that was really a game changer?.

N. in the US Congress and now the departure of his Emirati allies will be enough to persuade him that this war needs to come to an end the minute if you think about it that's a pretty significant line up of pressure Gordon says the crown prince still has an important ally in his corner president trump has made it clear the US will continue to support the Saudi effort in the Yemen conflict.

"Us. Listening to the foreign desk with me under molester with me are Craig and Assam our Ronnie in the second half of the show. I want to try talking about what might happen next may be looking a bit beyond say that six months that the UN is initially going to send a small detachment to her data. If we just look at the attitude and a put this to you or some of the the main protagonists to the conflict, there are others who we will discuss. But if we think of it in terms of the the Saudi backed government of Yemen and the Iran backed who the'rebels is it fair to say that both of those sides do actually want the conflict to stop we've been asking that question for the last three years and the answer to that is no the position of internationally every night is government towards this is talk agreement, for instance, as to show their willingness to go into piece was wasn't that the pressure of the international community that they need to accept this agreement. And if you look at their discourse up to that agreement and how. How they had been attacking the other side. And they have always shown that the other side cannot be trusted with reach Norway. And and their their believe is even if this agreement would succeed, the hotel as a hoagie groups cannot be left with at least politically. So they don't show that at all. And also he's in whatever formula Yemen would reach after this conflict healthy is would not trust. That formula spy today. We would move into any democratic formula healthy is have been doing a lot of negative inhumane practices on the ground. And they know that they no longer have that trust with with the citizens, and they have been perceived negatively as militia and as a as a bad group, and they know if they would lose her data, they would reach to any political settlement that would not be a win for them. So I don't I don't see any interest from both parties to to in this conflict an old Nunnelee. This also the the blooming. What economy that has been the last? Actually, two years is some sort of this in devised tool for this warning party minutes ago into peace. They were they're going to lose a lot donated mean a lot we're talking about resources in the first half for the program. You reminded us. There are other protagonists to this conflict. And I guess the most prominent among them, certainly in international coverage of the conflict have been the likes of Al Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula, and a sort of local franchise of Islam state is it possible to tell whether they still that much of a factor, perhaps even gaining momentum. Well, I mean, they're very small players in in all of this Al Qaeda has put it self really on the on the side if you like of the Saudi led coalition in this war for obvious religious reasons, they see this as a sectarian conflict and have very much tried to promote that they gained a loss at the beginning of this conflict in in two thousand fifteen to twenty sixteen they controlled large amounts of territory in. The east of the country and control the port, which they made many millions of dollars of on a weekly basis. But since that parents since twenty sixteen they've actually lost her tree, they do still exist. They have been fighting most prominently really in the province of our beta. And that has really brought them to blows recently over the last nine months and increasingly over over recent weeks, really with Islamic state in Yemen. Again, who were there in extremely small numbers? We're talking hundreds of exotic state members really in Yemen, but they have been playing out this propaganda war between them, and as one of the many factions whether is infighting particularly on the Saudi led coalition side in the internationally recognized government side of this conflict. There are many factions who are fighting each other often on the ground. We have seen Al Qaeda and Arabian peninsula, fighting with Islamic state's both physically and in in their propaganda online as well. So yes, they are still small players in all of this. But not as. Significant as as many other really kind of proxy forces. I guess that are on the ground, particularly those that have been both created and funded by her basically created the morale tease created a an effect a parallel army in Yemen of some fifty two eight hundred thousand fighters that are all essentially militias, really they do not answer to the internationally recognized government. Even though they are taking part in in most of the major fighting now in and around data, obviously before the ceasefire was implemented. So yes, that just one of many small groups, obviously there much of a focus for the international community in particular. And we did see a sudden rise in American intervention Yemen and the former drone strikes and special forces rates back in two thousand seventeen which then sort of dropped off last year in two thousand eighteen but obviously it's something still of a major focus for for Washington in particular. But in reality on the ground in in Yemen as far as this conflict concerned that they've very small players. Summer were coming towards the end of the show. I so far I think it's fair to say we've disinterred precious little grounds for optimism. But if we just try looking ahead a few years down the track. Do we have any idea at all any outline coming into view of what a settlement might look like whether that's some sort of political reproche Mon between the warring parties, perhaps even Yemen becoming two countries. Once again, as it has been before do we have any idea what Yemen after this war is going to be like, this is a million dollar question that he doesn't have an answer. Now yemen. It's really hard to expect what's going to happen within the coming year. How would you expect what's going to happen for the coming five years? So there is not actually an exact answer to that. But what I could be sure of this is now nothing is not getting any better in regards to the life in on the ground and also in the political arena as well. The local groups have been increasing the mistrust between the citizens of the state has been also expanding as well. But also most importantly, the approach of the UN now might need to reconsider their approach to to have a different approach that would ensure that whatever a peace agreement they need to reach not reflect a quick win for the international community as that happened in Stockholm rather it should look at in conflict as a whole, and if it is to put pressure on the Wadi parties, it shouldn't put pressure on the warring parties to respond to a media propaganda or into the media or the world pressure as happens with hydrogen. It was very clear international company reacted to Yemen's cases because of the coming of controversy, and they put pressure in Saudi and Saudi was in a position they redo to do this. But that's not how how we approach him. If we are to look into peace into Yemen to to be looked from inside out not from outside inside the country. And that is for the UN to decide. And I think as for now there's gonna be a very difficult job for both full. Whatever government. We would be reaching out in in the future to rebuild the state. We have now a huge number of military personnel in both sides. We don't never know how vide- put country could really accommodate all this huge number that could go over the the five hundred thousand soldiers our country that now cannot pay civil servants their salaries for the last two years. How would they be able to pay all those fighters when the state is back that economy has did treated ugity the GDP has contracted by fifty percent and economically? Speaking to get to that number again it needs at least in fifteen years. So I assume it's it's gonna be very hard for Yemen. But I hope when it comes to the reconstruction and recovery programs or process in Yemen. It should be done really really made me think of how to rebuild the state again, a state that doesn't allow such war to happen again. Just a final thought from you. I own a D perceive from where we are. Now any end at all insight on could we be making this program? Again, this time next year or the year off that while having quite rightly been numb ticked off by some of these in the wet optimism before about the political talks on that she not optimistic that they will succeed will that this Stockholm agreement will succeed anyway, at the moment, I think the walls optimism that was bought at the end of last year that at least we will get into the point of being back on the political track. But I have to say I think we could well find ourselves having this conversation not just in a year's time. But in two years time possibly three years time. Unfortunately, I think the moment there are so many different factors that really haven't been included in lots of the political discussions at the moment, and even this Stockholm agreement as summer already mentioned there were no details in it really for a successful implementation. Really to happen at the moment that makes me see. That this can be a beginning to the end if you like the her day would be the first step on route to an end to this conflict. So no, unfortunately, I'm not very optimistic. I hope I'm wrong. And that it does succeed on the ceasefire and data and the Stockholm agreement is implemented, successfully, I hope I'm absolutely wrong on that. But I think we could be back here in any year's time in two years time, and and beyond that even under Craig. Osama our Hani thank you both very much for joining us. That's it for this episode of the foreign desk where back next week and look out for the foreign desk. Explainer available every Wednesday.

And my wife always goes and pushes on the door near the hinge side in. And she said what's wrong with me? Why do I keep doing that? I'm like it's got nothing to do with. You beat yourself up that door has a design problem because you can't tell by looking at the push bar which side the hinges on. Yeah. We've all had that experience with the door. That's a classic example usability, right? Can you handles on the outside you pull it? But you don't know. I mean, it's it's always we've all had a cheap blame herself. Because we re always blame ourselves for bad design. It's not it's not us. It's it's really thinking about who that they think if you put a handle on something for me, I wanna pull it. But I don't know. Really? Yeah. But You know? you know, again, my first reaction is like what's wrong with.

Oh, eight compliant or section five compliant, which everyone thought just meant putting all tags on pictures, but really it meant making it. So the blind could Bank, right? And they had us install jaws, which was, you know, popular screenwriter at the time, and we had to turn off our monitor's and like work for a day..

But watching yourself how were you reacting to others? What are you? You know, what are you doing with others? Like, would you question? The things that you do.
