For those wondering what form of government those demonstrating in the streets in Yemen are demanding, I would strongly recommend this interesting article in The Guardian today by Dr Tariq Aldoais, an activist and doctor in the Yemeni youth revolution. It is a heartening piece, and a reminder that the reason Yemenis wanted to see the back of Saleh was because of reasons that should resonate with all those in the West: greater freedom and political and democratic accountability. Saleh may be gone (for all intents and purposes), but these are the very things that al-Qaeda there are determined not to see happen, and are subsequently murdering those that get in their way. Yemen deserve our support in the face of al-Qaeda’s nightmarish vision for the country.
