Was there a Yemeni Revolution?
informed comment / Mister. Juan Cole

Yemen is the poorest of 22 Arab League states, and sits astride the
mouth of the Red Sea, through which about ten percent of world trade
flows. Its port of Aden is also important to Arabian Sea trade. Yemeni
instability that spilled over onto neighboring Saudi Arabia could have a
significant impact on petroleum prices. A small al-Qaeda cell operates
in Yemen, and Muslim radicals are said to have taken advantage of the
instability to take control of the small city of Zinjibar
