Still watching – and learning from – the Arab Spring

Poor #Yemen. People are not learning enough despite all the alleged attention. The referendum is not a presidential election, it is a device built into the GCC deal, that creates a two year hiatus during which time they are supposed to effect a political transformation. I have no idea why a 2 year window is deemed necessary but my instincts tell me it is not for the benefit of Yemenis.
