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.

  1. It's hard to take seriously someone's supposed expertise on Yemen when they can't come close to pronouncing the names… 'Saleh' has a couple of sounds that we don't have in English, but it's like 'SOL-eh' (with the 'h' making a sound, not silent). Not 'sa-LAY'… Never listened to the BBC or Al-Jazeera?

    And Bahrain was a sectarian issue from the beginning – something not at all understood by most of the media.

  3. How goes public support for the Revolution in Egypt, so will go Yemen, Syria and the security of Iran. So gigantic a burden for rebels so few, defenseless and gutsy.
