Yemen’s Political Soap Opera

Adam Baron comes back on the show to talk about the recent political drama in Yemen. We covered some of the major events of the past few months and then discussed other issues including:

  • Former ex-president Hadi ‘leaving’ Sanaa for Aden
  • Embassy closures in Yemen and what that could mean for the country
  • The southern secession movement and why they’ve been unable to capitalize on Yemen’s political chaos
  • The Houthi’s aims, and the blunders that have eroded some of their popular support
  • The potential for Yemen’s political problems to become far more violent
  • Failures of the international community to effectively handle the situation in Yemen
  • Role of Saudi Arabia, Iran, and other neighboring countries in the current conflict
  • Humanitarian problems that go largely unnoticed but could have serious long-term implications
