Debating the Saudi War on Yemen

March 29, 2015 at 7:07 AM

Eric Draitser of StopImperialism.org debates the Saudi-led war on Yemen. He argues that the war should be understood as a proxy war intitiated by Saudi Arabia in order to prop up a puppet government and further its own interests. Draitser illustrates the hypocrisy of the US and its allies as they confer legitimacy on compliant regimes, and call illegitimate those that do not bow to their diktats. He examines the issues of terrorism, geopolitics, and imperialism, explaining how they are relevant to this discussion.
