Alex Williams on Yemeni Resilience

Alex Williams, host of Yemen News, talks more about different factions taking advantage of the war in Yemen and asks us to consider where all the weapons being sold to the warring parties really end up. He also describes Yemen’s tribal society as well as the impact of the war on tribal values and continues the theme of Yemeni resilience, saying, “Yemenis can’t be defeated because they have nothing to lose.” Alex and his hosts urge listeners not to take a political side, but to take a “pro-life” stance by bringing up Yemen within their circles of influence and calling for urgent pressure to end the Yemen war.
