‘Saudi Crimes Akin to Israel’s’, with U.S. the Common Denominator – PressTV
Press TV has conducted an interview with Tighe Barry, a CODEPINK activist, from Washington, to discuss Saudi Arabia’s air campaign against Yemen despite a truce the Saudis announced last week.
Press TV: I have asked this question during the past fifty days and I am still not getting really a clear answer, maybe you can enlighten us. Why Saudi Arabia is attacking Yemen?
Barry: Well, this is unclear to me except that Saudi Arabia is saying that they want to re-install Hadi as the president of Yemen, but Hadi ran away and I doubt he will ever come back. I think what Saudi Arabia is doing is similar to what Israel does in Gaza which I have been many times. They have a very poor country to their south that they can exploit. They want to use Yemen as a doormat and they will continue firing as they please with $60 billion worth of US military equipment, US logistics, and US training.
