Sa'dah: The Best and Worst
Over the weekend I read one of the best - in English - articles on Sa'dah that I have seen in a long time and one of the worst.
First, the best comes from a French researcher, Pierre Bernin, and appeared in Le Monde Diplomatique. Here is a link
, but the article is behind a wall. (I read it on a listserv I am a member of, and consequently can't post it.) I would highly recommend the article to anyone looking to make sense of the conflict.
On the other end is Waq al-waq's favorite whipping company, Stratfor, which recently put out an article about Hezbullah fighters in dying in Yemen. Unfortunately I was only able to read excerpts of the article a friend sent, as it too is behind a wall. In this case I would not recommend anyone reading that article unless you are A.) bored or B.) looking for an alternate, onionesque take on the war without the humor.
