7:32 pm
attempt to reach to capture it at city i think that all hell will break loose let me let me they are not quite going to do that just a moment i want to let eric get in there because i can tell eric same to a bit skeptical if i'm not a what if it words of your mouth as to what you are saying eric go ahead now i think do united states has technically drawn a red line around the ports don't attack the ports but the united states has given saudis and roddy's defacto permission to do all kinds of things around the data all kinds of things on the west coast all types of violence that are significantly exacerbating the humanitarian situation the united states could have exercised as leverage to stop this offensive before it ever really got going and stop the what oxfam i think recorded in september as the four hundred seventy thousand that have been displaced the united states is also and this was a publicly by state department officials the middle east institute not too long united states is also fine with. the saudis sort of exercising military leverage and had data to push the who these two
7:33 pm
a political solution i'm not whether that will work is to be fully up in the air but it's undoubted there's going to be significant civilian penalties for that and cost to civilians so i don't think the united states redline iran had data has really held and i don't think the united states really has acted properly or really done all it could to stave off a humanitarian crisis there this saying go ahead. i don't think there is a united stated line around data because if there was then why the saudi that coalition has been attempted for the last three months to enter data the united states is fully back in the coalition war effort in yemen it doesn't matter where they are the border or in aden is if they just want to keep helping the saudi to push. into her day in the other area of the united states the united nation actually want to help be a money before talking about cease fire they have at least to lift the blockade or to let food and medicine and fuel come into yemen because this is what the many
7:34 pm
want is not about what the how do you want what do you want others what yemeni gently now we need they need medical help food supplies this is blocked by the saudi led coalition close and port to port is a war crime so this is the first thing to being on the united states must actually . say the name that that's all we did in the state in because i mean the united nation and us in yemen is a conflict yemeni conflict or a civil war in yemen is not like that if you don't mention the saudi role in yemen this mean that you are giving them a green a green light to do it if they want in our country ok sir there are obviously members of the u.s. congress from both parties who have been critical of saudi for years and even more so now because of what has happened to the market to those members of congress have leverage to get the trump administration to do something.
7:35 pm
well the broader point here a sigh think that the kind of lobbying efforts that have been taking place in the past and the rhetoric saudi arabia united arab emirates are the full war against iran is ringing hollow at the moment precisely because that it has showed you a fear so what has happened is that the appetite in washington and the mood has changed. it is clearly that the war in yemen now is gaining renewed attention and the question marks are being erased over what kind of partnerships do us saudi partnership what kind of results that partnership is producing in yemen i think that the next face of the debate is going to focus on the u.s. iran talks and how that could factor in in yemen obviously the relationship between washington and riyadh is strategic and united states understands that saudi arabia
7:36 pm
has legitimate security concerns having said that the status quo of the war has not been sustainable for quite some time so i think that they wrapped up pressure that we're seeing from the administration come bind the with rich rhetoric coming out of the congress including from both parties and the u.s. media. producing on president the pressure on the saudis and immoralities and that that message has not gone lost than i had or capital so right now the united states needs to continue to push forward to ensure that peace talks can take place rather sooner than later eric do you see this as a moment that there could be. a re-evaluation of the relationship between it saudi arabia and the u.s. and perhaps as a result something actually will change in yemen. yes but just to briefly respond
7:37 pm
to some panelist points i do very strongly and want to continue strongly condemning the amorality led campaign in the west coast that was causing so much displacement but also the who these bear a lot of responsibility for civilian suffering in terms of lang land mine in terms of destroying transportation networks in terms of conscription people into armed service and that should also be pointed out and condemned sure about the congressional picture i think we are approaching a bit of an inflection point not with this administration's relationship with saudi arabia the emirates they seem to be all in but with congress's relationship with saudi arabia and the emirates i think is right that congress is no longer looking at saudi arabia and the emirates as a reliable security partners we have two bills going on right now house concurrent resolution one thirty eight and senate joint resolution fifty four that will be coming up after the election each is a war powers resolution that invokes congressional warthe already has little use congressional war authorities to withdraw u.s. logistical and personnel support to the saudi led coalition's bombing campaign in
7:38 pm
yemen. if those got high vote counts or of those passed and i think in the senate side in particular there's a very strong chance that it passes that would represent a historic rebuke and even if it doesn't become law in the lame duck a little further the saudis number pushed this the more they are poisoning their long term position within the u.s. government and the more future administrations are going to look at them askance regardless of what the president ministration does who say we're about out of time but i'm going to let you have the last word fairly quickly away circle back and talk to you again in thirty days do you think that anything would have changed even a little. no i don't think that anything will change because the saudi relationship is based on money and this was clearly in. election spoken about money many many times so as long as the saudi is actually given money to the united states nothing will change anything the only thing that will change this war if the. last ballastic missile if they target saudi oil fields so
7:39 pm
the main economy backbone then i think this will actually hurt the united states and they might actually try to stop this war ok hopefully there will be a cease fire that's where everybody can hope for that and thank you all for joining me appreciate it very much eric i can bury hussein. no power and thank you for watching us you can see the program again any time check out our website al-jazeera talk calm for further discussion facebook page facebook dot com forward slash story and you can also join the conversation on twitter our handle is at story i mean we shall carry the entire team by for now.
