7/1/22 Shireen Al-Adeimi: The Ceasefire in Yemen is Not Enough

Scott is joined by Shireen Al-Adeimi to discuss the war in Yemen. They talk about the War Powers Resolution in Congress and the Ramadan ceasefire, which is holding for now. Al-Adeimi points out that the Saudis dropping their support for former President Hadi was not actually a step towards peace. Instead, they turned to a “council” made up of rival warlords who appear destined to use violence in their disputes rather than diplomacy. But, she points out, the Saudis cannot exert any real control over Yemen without full military support from the United States. That defines a clear path for bringing this bloody period of foreign intervention in Yemen to an end.

Just For Laughs: “China may be spying on you through your coffee maker”

China may be spying on you through your coffee maker, “expert” says 🙄

H/T: Midwestern Marx


China is spying on you with your coffee maker as you read this on a phone that’s made in China by a person that typed this up on a computer that’s made in China. Warning people that China spies on you while continuing to give China more data. Don’t know whether to laugh or cry at how smart Americans are.
