AstraZeneca pauses coronavirus vaccine trial, shares slip on rollout doubts

"No Work? No pay no food coronavirus lockdowns have forced many people all over the world to wonder where their next meal's will come from according to Matthew True. Scott Oxfam International's head of Humanitarian Policy About one hundred and twenty one million people have been pushed to the edge of starvation. This year not of course is across the main hotspots you would expect Yemen Democratic Republic of Congo of Gunston Venezuela, south. Sudan we're also seeing hunger coming up in otherwise middle income or developing countries. India South Africa Brazil CETERA. Look at a situation in the world where you have about sixty sixty, one percent working in the informal economy when that denied that daily income forced to stay at home they no longer get that income and that forces them into some of the negative coping strategies and that's what makes this crisis so unique. People. Couldn't travel to work which meant they couldn't make money and they couldn't buy food but this isn't just a short term problem. Is it Yeah and it has sort of long term impacts where, for instance, if you take people who are living day to day selling milk, if they can't sell milk for a few days, it gets point whether then have to do something to have food and income then have to sell their means of income. So selling the cow which had been providing them and then conquered back to generate income and same happens instead of urban areas where people who had been, for instance, taxi drivers after. So long of not being able to take fares and give taxi rights eventually then have to start selling off assets to cope and that's where we're really. Seeing potential long-term structural breakdown, and as you say, this is a problem that existed before the pandemic. So how do we tackle it this time around does it require new solutions? It does with sort of proposing three solutions. The I of course is that we need to increase humanitarian aid drastically the U. N. Global Humanitarian Appeal has called for about ten point, three billion dollars in humanitarian aid. But only about twenty, four percent of that is funded. So less than a quarter, the second thing that we can do is cancelled some of the debt that could free up up to a trillion dollars, and then of course, the final thing is. Exactly, as you say, we do need to change how system works. We need to build a more fair and more robust food system. We need to build a system that's ready to deal with the climate shocks that's able to produce sustainable food. One that supports a small-scale Farmers Informal Workers, Matthew Scott head of humanitarian policy at Oxfam International. Thanks for your time. Thank you so much

Kushner tries to smooth over F-35 dispute in visits to Israel and UAE

"This week. The first Israeli commercial airliner landed in the United Arab Emirates and both countries are celebrating new diplomatic ties. But the USA is focused on a different airplane. It wants to override Israeli objections and by the F 35 from the U. S. NPR's Daniel Estrin reports. Good morning. A senior Emirati defense official welcome President Trump's son in law and White House advisor Jared Kushner at an Emirati airbase that hosts US troops. Mr. Jared Kushner. Distinguished delegation Major general Fella who Kahtani ticked off the U. S and M Iraqi military's joint efforts. Recently. We have sent our troops to Afghanistan to work with US force to fight Isis. Afterward, Kushner met the Emirates first female fighter pilot, They posed for photos in front of a sleek F 16 fighter jet marked with the Emirati flag. Nearby like unacknowledged elephants in a room stood to gray F 35 joint strike fighters. The US keeps those stealth aircraft at this base, the USA once some of its own Carnegie Middle East Center fellow but safe. Having a case of non belligerency between Israel and the U. S is a kind of argument that now that you Moratti's will push forth to ensure that they can get that deal with the F. 35. The Emirati military has fought in conflicts in Yemen and Libya and wants to enhance its standing as a regional power. But the F 35 issue is sensitive. Israel is the only country in the Middle East that has a 30 fives. And despite the new peace deal, it publicly opposes the U. S selling the Emirates those Jets. Former Israeli defense official AMA Ski Lad says Israel needs to protect its military superiority for whatever geopolitical changes come in the future. I want apology and is a precedent right? You'll get it and not Saudi Arabia, Egypt and so and we might be surrounded by coalitions. That is not inferiors in our air Force. That's him. Lots of them. The U. S. Is committed by law to protecting Israel's qualitative military edge, or Q. M. E. Kushner told reporters that the U. S can keep the Israelis and the Emirati is happy. The military relationship that America has with United Arab Emirates is very special, just as the relationship that America has with Israel is incredibly special. And so the cure me is something that can be respected while also advancing our military relations with the United Arab Emirates. Kushner says discussions on the F 35 will take time. His priority is to quickly finalize the treaty between Israel and the U. S. A. And try to get more Arab countries to establish ties with Israel.

Treasures Looted in War

Treasures Looted in War

"So. Can you tell me what cultural heritage is and why it's important? Well. Cultural Heritage is essentially what represents the shared common history that a group of people might have and it can be something very specific as pertaining to single group of people a country, a region, or it could be a worldwide issue. My name is allows Lauzon I may professor of Middle East history not apology at Shawnee State University in Ohio. Cultural artifact top caught of your heritage. So if we're thinking of post cultural heritage, you're thinking of the remains left by ancient peoples, civilizations et Cetera, and these can be archaeological sites, archaeological monuments, and also artifacts left behind an if I can be something as simple as a stone tool, a sickle, a mortar and pestle that's used to produce food to something extremely elaborate, intricate and very, very beautiful. So, how big of a problem is the looting of art and Cultural Heritage of cultural artifacts. Looting is a huge problem, but it's also important to point that right away that it's not a new problem, it's a problem as all this human history itself. As long as we have had tombs, we've had tomb raiders as long as there have been civilizations. You know they're spent an army waiting on the next hill to come in and plunder them. We've seen throughout history that culture has always been a weapon of war. I Am Test Davis, and I'm executive director of the antiquated coalition and not for profit organization in Washington who. Starts in places like war-torn Cambodia, war-torn Cypress, or torn Iraq, or Yemen, or Libya the list goes on and on. And this is funding conflict. It is funding terrorism and it certainly funding crime around the world, which is why everyone should care about it. Regardless of whether they're interested in culture arts for preservation. One. Problem that everyone has faced who's working in this area as that so many view this as a white collar victimless crime, and that's if they've you at a crime at all, that's not the case it might end up a white collar crime at the end, but it doesn't start that way and these are cultural objects and they really run the gamut from those fatter looted from archaeological sites or. From museums or other collections and war zones, and then trafficked by armed groups either to finance the hostilities or sometimes by individuals to exploit them for personal gain from the perspective of an archaeologist, a historian I, you know when artifacts removed from its context we lose priceless history that were never going to get back again many of these are sacred objects that were never meant to be bought and sold. They are pieces that were you know hacked off of a Hindu temple or Buddha shrine they're not meant to be commodities and many of sacred places there still sacred places. And when object is taken from them it's as if it's destroyed because you know that villager in that village never going to see it again. And you know it matters a great deal to these communities. When an artifact is improperly removed from its resting place, the damage can't be undone. The losses are devastating. So what's driving the looting? Areas like the Middle East are extremely rich in cultural heritage, every Syrian lives either on top of large logical site right next door to knock logical side or within a stones throw of an archaeological site. Now you put stress you put a conflict you put a situation where people lose their livelihoods and they will turn to looting and so much in fact of the looting that we see today in conflict countries like Syria likely. Be Like Yemen is very much associated with what we referred to a subsistence looting people will turn to loot in order to survive to make ends meet to try and find additional source of income, and suddenly there is a long established history as well of criminal elements, Mafias, gangs, or corrupt officials in many of these countries. So you find that added factory making looting lucrative, but also highly destructive as we see when it's completely uncontrolled.

Cleveland Indians Ace Shane Bieber Developing Into One of the Top Starters in MLB

"Talk about Shane Bieber who last night another great start and it was looking at his numbers this morning. Mad. He's faced one hundred, fifty batters in those he struck out sixty five, he's allowed five runs the whole year four those on home runs runners in scoring position forty, one innings or forty and two thirds innings pitched and only been ten situations in which a batter came up with a runner scoring position, and they're all for ten when we were lucky enough. To have him on a Sunday night, broadcast a couple of weeks ago and they're not many times would do in a broadcast and you're watching pitchers stuff and it's kind of taking your breath away. But that start watching his cut fastball particular it's curb all good Lord I don't know that anybody hits him. Yeah, and you know I mean I I you had the same kind of Breathlessness when you watch him as is when you watch a handful of other guys in the League. Like Derek Cole. I don't know if you saw Casey. Anything Casey mize's debut the other night. Yeah. Man. There were flashes in there where you might goodness split finger, fastball moves screwball. And boy those guys are fun to watch the way. They can manipulate the ball and I'll use a pitching coach term, shape their pitches. By the way I don't ever remember hearing people talking about shaping pitches before rap Soto, and some of the baseball factories that exists around the country now, Yemen. Bieber is fun to watch and when he first came up I, I don't know that any of us took him seriously as an ace in wait he had terrific minor league numbers maybe we should've taken him that seriously had always been a huge kind of strikeout-to-walk ratio guy. Those numbers were always really great in line with the guy that could play in the big league level. But it it maybe it's because he came from from UCSB and it's a very small intimate list of major league players to come from the University of California Santa Barbara. Not a lot of gauchos out there I mean just top of mind and a crisper went. To UCSB, Quinn Mack ucsb Guy Ryan spill boards. UCSB. Guy But it's a small list, right? So. He didn't come with the kind of pedigree that would indicate that this guy's in there and heard you talk about this to be there's something in the sauce in Cleveland. There's something they do developmentally with the air and cer- volleys and the you know Zach Lease Accent Mike cleansers even though that discussion has taken a different track or something that happens with those guys when they get there that takes them to the next level. We we give the Astros a lot of credit for bringing great pitchers to the Uber Grade Level I. Think we have to have that conversation about the Indians as well. You Lie Spirits Sports Bureau Senate there's no chain. BIEBER's the fourth pitcher fifth instance in the modern era since one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, five strikeouts in his first six starts this of the.

Gloss. Flying Everywhere and even if people went close to the explosion that was property damage in our homes. and.

Watchdog Says State Dept. Failed to Limit Civilian Deaths From Saudi Arms Sales

"State Mike Pompeo, reacting to an inspector general report finding the State Department was within its legal right to bypass Congress when it approved an arms sale to Saudi Arabia. The internal watchdog report also concluded the State Department did not fully considered the possibility of civilian casualties wanted to prove the $8.1 billion deal to sell arms to Saudi Arabia. Which is fighting rebels in Yemen. Travelling in Prague, Secretary Pompeo called the inspector general's pronouncement. Totally unfounded. Were very thoughtful about how we reviewed the risks. We did it right. There is a careful process. All voices were heard inside the state Department. Of course, we want to protect civilian lives. Congressional Democrats continue to criticize the sale. Saying there was no emergency that required the action.

Interview With Commander Kirk Lippold

"Welcome back. This is two of my interview with Kamenda Cook Leopold retired us. Commend. Commanding Officer of the US ask coal. When When it came under a suicide terror attack. by Al Qaeda back in the port of Yemen and. This was a In many ways the event that foreshadowed to nine eleven we import one we were talking about what happened back in that time we've been talking about leadership and politically how latest. Military has become. Driven by politics I want to expand further into this conversation I'm really grateful. Commend Leopold is with us here because. We are in a very different time as we're having this conversation as recording compensation were in the midst of a pandemic in two, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty however. There is more going on here and I want to dive into the political understandings of what's going on because. Politics, is a very interesting thing when it comes to the military because. The military is famously neutral. One about how serving your commander in chief to protect the country. CETERA. But for the first time, I've been studying politics. And actually American politics for since I was ten years old. and. Fla. First Time I can remember you now getting military leaders coming out and speaking. So yet retired Admiral William mcraven new came out and criticize trump about what was happening with the Kurds you've got general mathis who served under trump coming out and talking about trump and doing militarily, and now you've got trump talking about this the bounty that Russia's put out on American soldiers and saying it's a hoax. First of all, I want to ask you what is your thought on military leaders. Millet certainly retired ones but coming out and actually doing what they've never been I don't remember ever doing before and saying this is out of order. What's your thoughts on? Why I think you're you're crossing the line and I think part of that was driven by decision. The United States made post Vietnam where we chose to no longer have a draft where we would select people to serve in the military for a defined period of time but instead went to the all volunteer force and the way I have always approached it is. When you choose to serve and you'd like, I've mentioned in in part one was you choose that life of consequence in the service to your nation Yes enduring your period of service there may come decisions. That are going to be political in nature and let's face it. You can have the military giving you orders but who ultimately gives that direction? It are political appointees. And if you as a military officer spun to mentally disagree with the direction of those orders being given by your political masters because that's how our nation is designed in, you really get to choices in life. Put Up and shut up or get out. and. At some point in time serving in the military is not supposed to be a job for life. You hang up your Spurs. If you stayed long enough, you'll get a retirement check every single mom and then guess what go find work that contributes positively to the future of our nation, and that's I've tried to do is to give back to teach people those leadership skills. That we need out in the business world, I mean when eighty percent of the retired admirals generals go to work for the defense industry they're not sharing that expertise that they could be sharing with business in the civilian community to make even better and make sure that we understand as Americans how the military works and how we think wire we are the respected institution that we are. I think it's very disappointing when you got a lot of these military officers who choose to speak out against the president of the United States because. If you're going to have a military where they've enjoyed all the benefits including the political benefits of being senior in rank like that, and then they want to use that positional authority still wearing their stars on their callers or on their sleeve to somehow now feel that they are entitled to speak out about the commander in chief. That's fine. If you want to take on the policies, that's one thing when. You attack the individual I don't care what president it is whether it's President Bush. President Obama President Trump Benue are crossing a line at that point that even though you may have come from the civilian ranks served in the military in your civilian again if you want to maintain that professional ethos exemplified by General Marshal. Way Back in post World War Two. Then guess what challenged the policies don't challenge the people.

"If pictures of. Starving. Children in Yemen that didn't seem to affect senators. Right. But it's the murder of this one individual journalists, which though heinous it was a horrific murder, but still one person, right? And I just find that fascinating. And I just want to point to what I think is maybe one reason our colleague vox, Brian Resnick is one of our science reporters. He's done a lot of really interesting work on psychic numbing is what they call it. Which is basically that we don't emotionally respond as well to generalizations of mass killings, right? We can't really visualize that we are better and tend to be more responsive is it's like one single individual that we can really identify apocryphal Stalin quote, right? Like one death is a tragedy a million statistic. Exactly. And so it apart true frames that part of me thinks that might have something to do with it again. I don't know. I also think that there's a bigger strategic intellectual position your first of all I don't think it's the case that the war didn't move senators forty four seven. Tres voted against it. Right March has been fighting this fight for a while, their background tear. It just wasn't the majority of Senator there had to be something that changed people some people who are on the fence. Right. And the reason that custody I think it was so important first of all he was an American resident so it felt like a kind of international crime against the defenseless person the US at a tie to whose kids are American right and second it la- Strates the nature of the current Saudi leadership specifically crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman, right? This is a guy who has been adventurous and dangerous in terms of his foreign policy throughout the Middle East. Saudi arabia. The basis of the US Saudi relationship was that Saudi would help the US keep the Middle East stable. He has been aggressively into uranium and in many ways, destabilizing, the Middle East through these aggressive foreign policy moves like the war in Yemen, like murdering journalist because you think he's a threat like cracking down on dissidents in a way that you hadn't seen from previous Saudi rushing a massive diplomatic and economic. Blockade of Qatar, right? Like, these are all really really aggressive moves and finally Americans are paying attention to what this guy is like an American leadership is paying attention to what their allies doing under its new government. And I think that's part of a galvanized. Just like not giving a shit and two straight up like having a guy murdered butchered really in this consulate abroad without really giving shit. Like, I can just do this. And no one's gonna punish me. I think that just cocky brazen attitude is definitely part of it. I think you're right. All of what you said. Is right. One side point that I don't want to get lost is that congress historically has not rebuked the president on issues of war just period and one of the biggest issues in American foreign policy has been the centralization of of war making powers within the White House. Right. So for congress to do this. It's small but kudos to them for actually taking back some of their constitutional authority. Now, we're gonna take a brief break when we come back. We're going to discuss the ongoing Brexit chaos engulfing the UK..

"It's tuesday. November twenty. In the middle of September. I arrived in the town of Diane, which is in the far northwest of Yemen. It's a farming towns, very simple place, and we arrived there early in the morning and the main street of this town is not paved it's just a dirt road, essentially. And soon after we arrived in the town. I saw that on the side of the road was big crater. It was marked out with wooden sticks and red tape, and after we get out of the car and walked around I discovered they were people doing a little parade which was to commemoration of what had happened there six weeks earlier, and what had happened there. This was where a bomb had struck a school bus full of children in August, killing almost everyone on board the forty four children killed and ten adults and just over a low stone wall was the wreckage of the school bus, which was twisted into an almost unrecognizable mass of of black metal. Just beyond the crater where the bomb had struck was written in color on wall in both English and Arabic. America kills Yemeni. Children. And this is something you find all over Yemen that when there's a major air strike there will be bomb fragments found, and usually they have serial numbers or other markings that them and in this case the markings made clear that it was an American made bomb..

"Back in June. We did a show on the war on the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Millions of people are starving thousands of died. But go figure the death of one person a person who had nothing to do with Yemen. Got people to pay attention. His name was Jamal Shoghi. Jamal has showbiz death. Put the spotlight on Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is playing a major role in the conflict in Yemen. And the United States has been supporting Saudi Arabia. Today. We're gonna explain this whole conflict once more because it's crazy complicated. And after we do that, what might change now that the world's paying more attention to how horrific things are. The casualties of Yemen's war go way beyond the bombs and bullets the disaster hidden from the world's is is Melanie attrition, walling. And a half million children are suffering and the pediatric emergency units. And so Naro is under terrible pressure a crisis. That's been worsened by the Saudi blockade of ports and border crossings, which is limited food and humanitarian supplies the country registered its one millionth case of cholera health officials say it's the fastest spreading Colorado democ in history. I've been to Yemen, and I fell in love with it. I site Joost Hiltermann works at the International Crisis Group, a very long enrich cultural history and the architecture is establishing the artwork is likewise. So and the people, of course, while being desperately poor compared to say to Gulf neighbors are ever so welcoming and friendly and nice the Yemen. He remembers is basically gun and United Nations. Now says that fourteen million people on the brink of starvation, which is almost impossible to imagine. The comic situation is desperate to humanitarian situation as horrendous and people are literally going to starve if various sieges that have been imposed, but very military actors continue, I know this conflict in Yemen is incredibly complicated and involves. Many different parties to get an idea of the sort of politics of the country and the geography what do people need to know about where Yemen is where it situated who its neighbors are to understand everything that's going on right now. So it's located on the southwestern tip of the Arabian peninsula. So south of Saudi Arabia coastline is partly Red Sea and party to go of Aidan, and then Dorothy Indian Ocean and coastal people very much mix into cultures very much mix typical of coastal regions anywhere. And it's a it's a country was twenty seven million people, very poor resource-poor. It was a real problem is water scarcity the country has some oil, but that is running out, you You know. know, basically been sort of neglect its member of the world. So in addition to being resource poor the country's going through a civil war right now. How did it start and win? Two states, nor to Yemen in southern Yemen. South Yemen was a socialist Republic during Cold War and the two parts were unified after the end of the goals were, but then it was a a brief civil war in nineteen ninety s the country since his or throughout this period was under control of a single autocrat. But name of Ali, Abdullah Sala. He was essentially pushed aside after the Arab uprisings of two thousand eleven through a deal. Made by the alliance of Gulf states Gulf Cooperation Council, they push them aside and put in a transitional government under different presidents who had taking over from his bus ie the LaSala who had led the country for three decades. And then there was a national dialogue process that was going to tackle all the difficult questions that Yemen faces including what's happened to south for example, that used to be independent. Yeah. And that national dialogue process fell apart. And that's what triggered a civil war. Had he struggled impose authority in a country riddled with poverty. This spread of armed groups and corruption. He also couldn't fend off the rising influence of the who 'this who had taken control of the northern province of Saada and the capitals, and that was in two thousand fourteen in late two thousand fourteen to who he rebels who had been fighting the now former autocrat Alya Delasalle during the arts, they stormed into the capital butts allied with the forces of this former autocrats because he had been displaced by this new transitional president the who 'this as Shiite sect also distance themselves from SUNY terrorist groups like a Cada an ISIS.

"So it it's hard sound like who who are the good guys in this fight. And and whether there's a good guy team or not the larger point, it's a human catastrophe. But before we get to the the scope of this human catastrophe. Is there a good guy team here? I don't think there is a good guy team. But I think it's pretty clear that even you know, even anyone who's worried about the who the's as a political force. You know, these guys have only been made stronger. I think by this war for the past three and a half years. I don't think there's a good guy. But some people think that the who these are just flexible enough, but when can deal with them, what can make some kind of political settlement with them. Give us a sense of the men -tarian crisis in Yemen, which the UN says, maybe the worst unitarian crisis in the past century. Well, the thing to realize about Yemen is that it's it's even before this was the poorest country in the world. It's it's a beautiful country. And that's what often gets left out. It's got these magnificent twisted mountain peaks, these huge desert's, and then unexpected areas of beauty, and and and lush valleys in the south. But the people have always lived very close to subsistence, especially up in the highlands. Whether it's almost no water. The capital of Yemen Sonam was projected years and years ago to be the first city on earth major city on earth to completely run out of water. So then you add to that, you know, a multi-year bombing campaign, and it's chest catastrophic and you start to see evidence of this as soon as you arrive in the country, even in the south where there have been battles, and, you know, destroyed houses pancaked roofs, it gets to its worst. When you get up to northwestern Yemen, which is the heartland of who these and the. City the major city up there saadah is just incredible everything has been destroyed every building. Now the post office the the university the university bookstore. Everything is flattened, and it's very easy to find, you know, human evidence of this. There's internally displaced people along the roads and hospitals. Most of which are now non functioning are packed with with people who are desperate wounded people from the war, especially large numbers of women with babies who were suffering malnutrition. So it's it's just even for someone who's used to being in a third world country. What's happening? There is shocking. Why did you want to go to him and considering the risk? Is a country. I've been going to for a long time. I started going there about twelve years ago. And I think again what gets missed in. This is it's a beautiful fascinating place with a very, very distinctive culture. You know? Medina depends tends to homogenize countries. And that hasn't happened so much in Yemen. It's got these incredible medieval architecture that looks like drip castles, you don't find anything like it.

"And then walked back some of that support in December twenty sixteen bomb halted some arm sales to Saudi Arabia citing these civilian casualties. But one thing that bothered me a lot as they continue to refuel coalition planes that were part of that bombing. So it's there, certainly no clean hands. There. I think their sense was if they cut off support entirely they would lose all ability to throw. Back the Saudi your coalition forces. But clearly that didn't work very well in hindsight. So I would say two things in response to that one. I completely agree that the Obama administration towards the end of its term of Detroit rain side in terms of elm sales and some of the restrictions and Trump of his sleep kind of took his do what you will. I don't think that's a defense for the overall conduct of bomber with Yemen. And people say, you know, Syria is the stain on his conscience. Obama administration when it comes to. I think it was Yemen because do they Syria whatever you think about Syria. It wasn't a wool that was the US had direct control of it. Whereas in Yemen just to push back against you align about well. You know, losing control of the Saudis the point about the war in Yemen. And Senator Chris Murphy made this point when I interviewed him on my custody weeks ago is that this is not just a Saudi led war. This a US Saudi led war. You mentioned refueling refueling intelligence on sales the Saudis could not do this war without us support. The US is not just supporting this Wolfrom fall. It's. Implicit on a daily basis. And that's when read out your quote from Bruce right L A thirty veteran of the former advisor on Middle East policy for US presidents, including a Boma. He said quote early this year, if the US and UK tonight told king Salman, this war has to end it would end tomorrow the Royal Saudi Ethel's kennel operate without American and British support. Think about statement tell me a former CEO knows his stuff is saying that if the US told us Audis the war has to end it would end tomorrow, we the west US UK has the power to end the world's worst humanitarian crisis tomorrow. And we're not using that power is a complete travesty. I personally think it's indefensible when I left the White House and twenty thirteen all the work that I had done regarding Yemen was specific to targetting QA p within Yemen. And that was a very serious threat emanating out of Yemen for Maki, I cannot for the life of me understand the strategic interests in helping a proxy. War against Iran. Ian linked sort of forces that is just destroying nation and killing entire population. It's it's indefensible and the point about the proxy was interesting. Because of course, I mentioned a few moments ago when the will start to the Obama administration itself, privately did not think that there were massive ties between the Iranians who these, but you know, what has happened in recent years. There have been massive ties between the Iranians who 'this NBS pushed who these into Iranian arms back five Pasig MB as I call them, the reverse Midas, whatever he touches turns to shit. So you know, he he wants to blockade Qatar cut them off from Iran. He pushes Qatar into Iran's. He bums the who 'this to cut them off from Ron. He pushes them into Iran's arms kills Jamal Shoghi to silence criticism of his country. He gets way more criticism than you ever anticipated and just on the point about a QA al-qaeda and bin peninsula, regarded as one of the most vicious al-qaeda groups, the US has been droning Yemen for a while now, and we can have a separate debate about whether that was. That was wrong. But what's so interesting about the current conflict is all of the investigations on the ground Associated Press did a massive story and August is that the Saudis and the Moretti's this coalition or actually employing Al Qaeda fighters told me to fight against these. Okay. So not only is a complete moral catastrophe and humanitarian catastrophe from a strategic point of it makes no sense for the US to be engaging in a war and backing coalition of which Al Qaeda is the pump. What was the point seventeen years of the war on terror, if you're just going to join a coalition, which includes al-qaeda makes absolutely no sense? Save the world is brought to you by stitch mix..

"Use its influence to end the civil war in Yemen. But I mean, again, practically speaking, I'm not sure I'm seeing that that happening in a meaningful way. I agree with that. I would like to see the administration, particularly secretary Pompeo taking a much more active role in in trying to press forward on a diplomatic approach, supporting Martin Griffiths at the United Nations, getting our our friends and partners. And I, I also would say that this is an area where perhaps there is some opportunity for us to engage Russia in a positive and constructive way. They played a positive role in two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. We should see whether this is an area where despite all of the tension in our bilateral relationship, this is an area where we can work together. Again, I appreciate you bringing up Russia. It's something I should have brought up earlier in the hour, but there's so much talk about regarding this complex war Jane Ferguson. I'm going to give you the last word you have been to Yemen. We've got about forty seconds left. What's your final thought you wanna leave with listeners who were hearing you. Final thought would be this is a civil war, but it's the civil war that has huge amount of influence from outside the bombs at our raining down on Yemen. Those are not Yemeni and the influence from outside on both sides is likely extending this war and making the humanitarian crisis all the more harsh and difficult. And I think that in the twenty first century, it would be absolutely shocking to have a manmade fund, a millions of people killed by war that any other countries are involved in, but that shocked may be exactly what we're seeing here in Yemen. Jane Ferguson. She recently got into northern Yemen to report on the conflict there. She did that for PBS NewsHour.

"Tell them, Tom, he sent you but known outside your circle's gonna know that because they can't intercept it end of it. You did another interesting piece on migration. I mean, despite up that things are in Yemen. There's also a migration crisis Somalians Ethiopians air trains or are going to Yemen, or at least through Yemen and route to wealthy Gulf Arab countries in search of work. How is the country where the government is just completely broken down dealing with this influx of people coming across their border? Basically, I mean, as you said, you haven't is completely broken and as really no governance a tool. And so with, I think it's about eighty seven thousand also migrants arriving on the shores of Yemen every year they arrive in a hostile environment where conflict has been the only rule of law over the last few years and then not really dig a great job at it. Quite frankly, they've set up various detention centers. And the thing that we explored in that particular report the mentioned is the various abuses. That take place that those detention centers and we uncovered corruption that we had stories of human trafficking of fatalities of huge mistreatment of these migrants who really have even fewer rights than the countries the deafening from. Well, the good news is you've got some results. You got the crony in charge of this, particularly egregious, bad detention facility fires, so that seemed like some progress in a desperate situation. Yeah, not going to lie that felt kind of good. Yeah, you by the end of the you had his boss, calling him a bad person, and you know it's pretty nice. All right. Yeah, kind ability. Yeah, he was fired immediately. I was. I'm a warrant released for his arrest a few days after the release of our report.

That take place that those detention centers and we uncovered corruption that we had stories of human trafficking of fatalities of huge mistreatment of these migrants who really have even fewer rights than the countries the deafening from. Well, the good news is you've got some results. You got the crony in charge of this, particularly egregious, bad detention facility fires, so that seemed like some progress in a desperate situation.
