I think as Yemen continues to get worse, it's important to keep in mind that they are second in per capita gun ownership in the world (the good 'ol USA is #1), which means if things get ugly, they can do so quickly and be very widespread.
It seems to me that this is a more appropriate focus for US military attention than Libya. It may even be a more appropriate focus for US military attention than Afghanistan. (No, I'm not calling for an invasion–just…attention.) I hope to be proved wrong, but I continue to worry that the bright shiny object (Gaddafi) has diverted our attention from the tumor in the region.
