This Past Week in the Middle East

By Ray McGovern, Sept. 18, 2020

James Carey of Geopolitics Alert and I were hosted today by “The Critical Hour” for a half-hour review of key developments in the Middle East/South Asia..

Among the issues discussed:
— Is there a chance that the Saudis and those providing them with weapons to wreak havoc in Yemen will be held accountable for war crimes; is it time to lawyer up?
— Why is the U.S. doing Israel’s dirty work in Syria? Is Israel’s preferred outcome in Syria “no outcome”, as senior Israeli officials told the NYT seven years ago?
— Prospects for Afghanistan; will all those thousands have died in vain?
