Everyone who is anyone is, you may have noticed, waxing semi-intellectually about Yemen, or rather The Yemen if you want to sound a bit old school about it. Here’s what you need to read to fake it and join in the conversation.
- Marc Lynch offering an excellent, tempered overall view.
- Security crank doing much the same.
- It didn’t just begin to be a problem on X Mas day you know, as Simon Tisdall and Kristian Ulrichsen sagely elucidated some time ago.
- A bit of background from Carnegie.
- A little bit on the Iran link.
- And the answer from Waq al Waq.
