8/28/17 MSF's Clair Manera on the cholera epidemic in Yemen

Claire Manera from Médecins Sans Frontières returns to the show to discuss the cholera epidemic in Yemen, which has somehow gotten much worse. When Manera was on the show less than two months ago there were an estimated 30,000 cholera cases; today there are more than 300,000. So many people are sick that they aren’t able to get to the hospital and many are dying in their homes without the critical care they need. Manera explains how cholera spreads and why the Saudi-U.S. war in Yemen has exasperated the impoverished conditions. The epidemic has gotten so bad, particularly among children, that in some cases patients die within just a few hours of contracting the disease. The case fatality rate is growing as the disease spreads rapidly and many people can’t get transport to hospitals. Tragically Manera expects the upcoming rainy season to make the dire situation even worse. Finally, Manera explains how people can help Doctors Without Borders in Yemen, including by helping to provide chlorine and saline.
Claire Manera is the coordinator of Médecins Sans Frontières in Yemen.

5/31/17 Clair Manera coordinator of Médecins Sans Frontières project Yemen, is interviewed on the Cholera outbreak

Claire Manera, coordinator of Médecins Sans Frontières’s project in Yemen, is interviewed on the Cholera outbreak in Yemen. Yemen has been in a state of conflict since 2015. That conflict is causing a humanitarian crisis, especially since the intervention by Saudi Arabia later in that same year. The Cholera outbreak in Yemen is also a result of this conflict, and is exacerbated by the malnutrition of the population because of the Saudi blockade. This extremely treatable disease is discussed, and as are other steps that could be taken to help the people of Yemen.

Chaar then updates the water situation in Yemen and the degree to which humanitarian aid is reaching the country. Finally Chaar explains why the work in Yemen only continues to get more difficult—and how people can contribute to the efforts of Doctors Without Broders.

Will Porter makes his debut on the Scott Horton Show to discuss his article for the Libertarian Institute, “Yemen’s Silent Numbers: Official Death Count Masks War’s Toll on Civilians.” Porter explains the numerous problems with the OHCHR’s civilian death count and why the estimates likely don’t reflect near the total number of civilians whose lives have been lost as a result of the war.

11/16/17 Scott Paul on the latest devastating Saudi blockade in Yemen

Senior Humanitarian advisor at OxFam America Scott Paul returns to the show to discuss the latest developments in the U.S.-Saudi war in Yemen. Paul explains that the situation has gone from bad to gruesome with the latest Saudi blockade following the Houthi attempted missile strike of the Saudi airport at Ridyah. According to Paul seven million people are attempting to survive on one meal a day while cholera cases continue to soar. Paul says that aid is the first major step, but that a ceasefire and a political process are the only things that can allow for the market to provide for the Yemeni people.

10/25/17 Nasser Arrabyee updates the U.S.-Saudi War in Yemen

Nasser Arrabyee returns to the show and updates the fighting in Yemen where Saudi airstrikes continue throughout the country, including in Sana’a. Arrabyee explains how Yemen has devolved into a mess of conflicting tribal and national interests. Scott introduces H.Con.Res.81 and explains what you can do to help stop the U.S. war in Yemen, which has, among other things led to nearly a million cases of cholera infections in the country. There are two different kinds of people being killed every day in Yemen according to Arrabyee: those who are killed in the continual airstrikes and those who are killed by starvation. Finally, Scott asks whether there’s a potential diplomatic solution to the conflict in Yemen.

8/29/17 Nasser Arrabyee on the latest Saudi atrocities in Yemen

Nasser Arrabyee returns to the show to discuss recent Saudi massacres in Sana’a, the worsening cholera epidemic, and how despite Saudi Arabia’s brutal tactics, they are no closer to achieving their goals. Arrabyee explains how the Saudis have tried to create a split between Yemeni president Saleh and his on-again, off-again Houthi allies. Arabyee details how Saudi Arabia has pressured the Yemeni people, many of whom have been denied their salaries for months on end, to stage a popular uprising. Arabyee explains why the “legitimate government” in Aden is a big lie, the role Iran is playing in the conflict and explains why it’s wrong to consider what’s happening a civil war.

7/11/17 Nasser Arrabyee on the outbreak of cholera in Yemen as a result of the U.S. war

Nasser Arrabyee returns to the show to share his reporting on the war in Yemen. The war dates back to March 2015 when Saudi Arabia and its U.S.-led coalition began raining death on Yemen in an attempt to reinstall the government of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, who Hillary Clinton empowered in 2012. Arrabyee discusses his experience the outbreak of cholera, how Southern Yemen has fallen into state of lawlessness as ISIS and al-Qaeda’s power has continued to grow, and how Saudi Arabia fights alongside al Qaeda and ISIS and Sudanese mercenaries throughout the country. While Saudi Arabia is the face of the war in Yemen, this is very much an American war.
