Dozens Of Aid Groups Urge Yemen Ceasefire Extension

AFP:

More than 40 humanitarian groups on Thursday called for an extension to the ceasefire in war-torn Yemen, calling it a “critical moment” for the country.

Ahead of the truce’s current expiration date on Sunday, 44 aid agencies issued a joint statement to “remind all parties to the conflict that the future of the people of Yemen is in their hands”.

Yemen’s war between Iran-backed Huthi rebels and a Saudi-led coalition has left hundreds of thousands dead and created what the United Nations calls the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

“Now is a critical moment for the people of Yemen,” said the groups, which include Oxfam, Save the Children and the Norwegian Refugee Council.

Chomsky on MacNamara’s Confession

Boy does this have a ring of truth to it:

“The one interesting aspect of the book is how little [MacNamara] understood about what was going on or understands today. He doesn’t even understand what he was involved in. I assume he’s telling the truth. The book has a kind of ring of honesty about it. What it reads like is an extremely narrow technocrat, a small-time engineer who was given a particular job to do and just tried to do that job efficiently, didn’t understand anything that was going on, including what he himself was doing.”

At first I thought he was talking about Biden, Blinken, Sullivan and Austin.
