As Ibn Silliqi and others have been pointing out to me it has been a busy few days in Yemen - AQAP is out with a new video on the Battle of Marib (just as I'm putting the finishing touches on an article about the same battle - and other things) things continue to heat up in Sa'dah with more and more people who know less and less about Yemen commenting on the fighting and using the continuing clashes to fit their own preconceived agendas.

Waq al-waq will do our best to contribute to the din as soon as a lingering dental emergency from my Yemen trip is cleared up.
