John Glaser, Assistant Editor at Antiwar.com, discusses the imminent departure of President Saleh in Yemen (and why it hardly matters); the Egyptian model of counterrevolution, where cosmetic changes obscure the authoritarianism and US influence that remains; how international attention on Bahrain has produced recommended reforms that the government will pretend to implement; and the “made in USA” tear gas and weaponry used by Bahrain’s government to brutally put down protests.

MP3 here. (20:06)

John Glaser is Assistant Editor at Antiwar.com. He is a former intern at The American Conservative magazine and CATO Institute.
