    Yemen's leader flees to Saudi Arabia, another regime change?

    Guy got wounded after an attack on him and his advisors by some type of explosive. He left for Saudi Arabia no idea how badly he is injured but the people are now celebrating as if it is a victory: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/ml_yemen;...hpdG9md291bmRl

    The departure of Yemen's battle-wounded president for treatment in Saudi Arabia set off wild street celebrations Sunday in the capital, where crowds danced, sang and slaughtered cows in hopes that this spelled a victorious end to a more than three-month campaign to push their leader from power.

    Behind the festive atmosphere, many feared Ali Abdullah Saleh, a masterful political survivor who has held power for nearly 33 years, will yet return or leave the country in ruins if he can't. Hanging in the balance was a country that even before the latest tumult was beset by deep poverty, malnutrition, tribal conflict and violence by an active al-Qaida franchise with international reach.

    Saleh, who was taken overnight to a military hospital in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, underwent successful surgery on his chest to remove jagged pieces of wood that splintered from a mosque pulpit when his compound was hit by rockets on Friday, said medical officials and a Yemeni diplomat. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not have permission to release the information.

    Glad the people got a victory finally, but I can't help but think the extremists will take over power.

    THIS is what they are really fighting. Not some puppet leader.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
