11/5/18 Scott Paul on Yemen

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

Scott Paul joins the show to talk about recent developments in the war in Yemen, where new casualty estimates claim at least 50,000 deaths just from direct violence. Oxfam estimates that the there are over 100 additional deaths from cholera and deprivation per day, and that when all is said and done hundreds of thousands of civilians will have been found to have died because of the war. Paul reminds us that there is plenty of room to negotiate peace, since most Yemenis hardly care at all about the politics of the war—they just want to be able to afford food.
