Yemen:A Nation in the Balance


Italian writer Pier-Paolo Pasolini once wrote about Yemen's "unreal perfection." But these days the country is anything but perfect. .It must cope with mass migration from Somalia and Ethiopia, deal with skirmishes along the border with Saudi Arabia, and try to contain a growing terrorist menace. At the same time, the country remains a staunch U.S. ally that permits the U.S. to launch attacks on suspected terror camps. .As in Pasolini’s time, the whole is the sum
of contradictions.
