On the South

Over at the Sana'a Bureau, Haley Sweetland Edwards has a couple of good articles on what is happening with the Southern Movement, particularly how the leadership is attempting to distance itself from Salih's accusations of kinship with al-Qaeda. I've argued for a while that the Southern issue is the single most important of the "three rebellions", and it looks like events there are speeding up.  I don't think we are quite past the point of no return yet, but it is getting really damn close.

Also, Greg continues to break radio silence by blogging at the possibly undead Waq al-Waq.
