4. I hadn't seen it before either.

Up to now I attributed the debacle in Yemen to too much testosterone and blind rage.

I'm still sorting out the connections of this to other things, it could take a while, but it makes all sorts of sense ...

But the project is not going well at all, if it was like this. Assad intends to take Aleppo now, al Nusra is being crushed, AQAP seems firmly in place in Mukallah at the moment, the rest of Yemen is not subdued, and ISIS is on the run in Syriaq if not elsewhere.

Erdogan is starting to look weak too.
