Erik Sperling was back on Antiwar Radio this week to discuss the situation in Yemen. Sperling explains the recent pressure campaign launched by U.S. officials to dissuade the Saudis from making peace with the Houthis without first securing a number of American demands. Sperling and Scott go over what these U.S. officials want, think through how this effort can play out and put all of these new developments in context. 

Discussed on the show:

  • “In Strategic Shift, U.S. Draws Closer to Yemeni Rebels” (Wall Street Journal)
  • “US maintains intelligence relationship with Houthis” (Al-Monitor)
