What to Read on Yemen Today
I've spent much of today traveling, but there is still a lot going on in Yemen. Hopefully in the next couple of days Waq al-waq will have more of a run-down, but for now I thought it would be nice to take a step back and get a better picture of what is happening in Yemen.
And for that we turn to four very smart men, all who tell, in one way or another, a variation of the same story.
Their pieces are up at Bitter Lemons today. I read them and so should you. They include Bernard Haykel, Nasser Arrabyee, and Waq al-waq's lost genius Brian O'Neill.
Brian's piece is here - with links to all four.
