The parable of those who take [beings or forces] other than God for their protectors is that of the spider which makes for itself a house: for behold, the frailest of all houses is the spider's house. If only they understood this! (Quran 29:41)

Salih insists he won't leave office until the crisis is over, when the crisis IS him still being in office. Where's Habib Shartouni when you need him?
Yemen won't become failed state, president says It's bewildering how Salih is dragging the country in chaos and civil war himself by twice refusing to step down at the last minute after throwing many hints he was going. I think the Saudis are interfering and are refusing to let him go as they're terrified of giving anyone in the peninsula the idea that uprisings can overthrow leaders. The longer it takes the more radical the opposition will be by the end. Good.
