#Yemen's #Saleh Sealed fate

France 2 reports military officers are joining the protests in Yemen:

"L'un des principaux chefs de l'armée , le général Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, et des dizaines d'officiers ont annoncé lundi rejoindre la contestation, emboîtant le pas à des ministres, des ambassadeurs et des députés du parti au pouvoir qui ont fait défection."

"One of the key army chiefs, General Ali Moshen al-Ahmar, and a dozen officers  joined the protest on Monday, following in the footsteps of ministers, ambassadors and members of the party in power who have defected."

President Saleh's options are dwindling. He has lost control of the street and now the loyalty of the military who keep him in power.

He has no choice but to seek asylum.

Aftermath of Saleh's ouster
Will Al Qaeda and Iran fill the power vacuum near the Bab el-Mandab passageway, one of the seven strategic global oil shipping chokepoints?

The fall of Yemen will be an Islamic fascist terrorist prize.

Finally, an Iranian toehold on the Saudi peninsula does not augur well for the region, countries targeted by MidEast terrorism,  and those heavily dependent on the free flow of oil.
