COI #205: Biden’s Failures on Covid and Yemen

coi205

On COI #205, Kyle Anzalone breaks down Biden's failure to reign in Covid and the Saudi “pariah” state. The US is facing staffing shortages in the medical field. Recently, a federal court reinstated a Biden rule requiring healthcare workers to take a Covid vaccine. Massachuttes has canceled 'elective' procedures to compensate for the government-created shortage. The Pentagon is now discharging unvaccinated soldiers.  Kyle also discusses the war in Yemen. Biden promised to end offensive weapons sales to Saudi Arabia. However, Saudi Arabia continues to bomb Yemen multiple times a day with...

12/22/21 Gareth Porter on Iran and Afghanistan

Scott celebrates eleven years on the radio by interviewing Gareth Porter about Biden’s first year in office. They discuss the negotiations between the Administration and Iran over a return to the JCPOA. Despite many crossovers with the team that reached an agreement with Iran back in the Obama years, Biden’s people appear set on squeezing more concessions out of the Iranians. But Porter points out that, as he had predicted, the U.S. reluctance to return to the deal led to hardliner victories in Iran’s last elections. But even with a more anti-American regime, Porter sees no evidence...

Afghanistan Is Now Facing Mass Starvation

https://twitter.com/60Minutes/status/1470199264609554434 Sharyn Alfonsi: Some of the humanitarian workers we spoke to said that the country is on the verge of its worst humanitarian crisis ever. Do you believe that to be true? Dr. Qalandar Ebad: We are on the edge of this crisis. Everyone knows that the funds are freezed by the international community. I think they can unfreeze the funds for the health sector of Afghanistan. It is very important for the need of the time. Sharyn Alfonsi: The international community has spoken pretty clearly and said, they're "not gonna unfreeze funds...

Yemen Is Shattered And The U.S. Helped The Saudis Break It

Screen Shot 2020 04 02 At 11.27.15 Am

Five years ago the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia invaded neighboring Yemen. The conflict was supposed to be quick and simple, over in a few weeks. Now the once-haughty Saudi royals have offered a ceasefire, after their opponents, Houthi irregulars, captured the province of al-Jawf. The conflict has created a horrific humanitarian crisis. Yemen, which has long been divided, impoverished, and embattled, is wrecked, and is unlikely to emerge as one complete nation. The cost has been roughly 100,000 dead in combat (nearly 20,000 of them civilians); another 130,000 dead from the consequences of the...

5 Years of US/Saudi War Made Yemen Susceptible to Coronavirus Crisis guest Joanne Leon

Joanne Leon returns to FPF to discuss the five year anniversary of the US/Saudi war on Yemen. The anniversary has received almost no media coverage in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak. Ironically, the five years of war in Yemen has created the world's worst humanitarian crisis - making Yemen one of the most likely to be devastated by a coronavirus. The US/Saudi/UAE/UK bombing campaign has intentionally targeted the civilian in fracture of Yemen. Now - before coronavirus even reaches Yemen - 24 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance and millions of children are at risk...

Another Saudi Failure in Yemen

On FPF #387, I discuss Saudi losing the second capital of Yemen to southern separatists. The southern separatists were long allies of the Saudis in the war against the Houthi. However, the separatists recently went to war against the Saudi-backed government in Yemen and seized the city of Aden. Losing a capital city of Yemen for the second time is the latest in a long string of failures for Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. Saudi - with essential US backing - continues to wage the failing war in Yemen, and the people of Yemen are suffering under the worst humanitarian crisis on the...

FPF #209 – Killing Yemen

On FPF#209, I recap the Yemeni Civil War. The war has raged since the Saudi-led coalition began its bombing campaign in 2015. The war has devastated the people of Yemen and sparked the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet. The people of Yemen are subject to a blockade that prevents food, fuel, medicine, and even journalists from entering the country. The blockade is supplemented by an indiscriminate air war on Yemen’s civilian infrastructure. I break down the humanitarian crisis, the critical US role in the war, and the ongoing catastrophic attack on Hodeida. Links Scott Horton Show -...

New Bipartisan Effort in Senate to Stop the War in Yemen

Progressive Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) and libertarian-leaning Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) have introduced new legislation this week that would end US support in the Yemen War. It's unclear if the legislation will be allowed to come to a vote by the leadership, but it's good to see the protracted conflict finally back in the news. Yemen is home to one of the most acute humanitarian crises in the world right now, with millions internally displaced and suffering from malnutrition as a result of the war. In a time of increasing polarization, this is also a good...

Genocide in Yemen

While every idiot in America is wrapped up in this Russiaghazi horseshit, the greatest purveyor of violence on the face of the earth -- your own government -- continues its war of starvation against the civilian population of Yemen. UN: "Almost three years into the conflict, Yemen remains the largest man-made humanitarian crisis globally. A staggering 22.2 million people – some 75 per cent of the population – need humanitarian assistance, including 11.3 million people who urgently require immediate assistance to...
