Get -- so we were starting to get reports on the associated press and Reuters were wires and then finally the government talking directly with.
Fox about president Ali Abdullah -- the president of Yemen.
We knew that the palace have been hit this morning now remember this guy was given a deal to go away a week ago he wouldn't sign it hit thirty days to get out of the country.
His country is at war right now.
They want him out scared yet it is scary and then this morning reports that first C he he had been killed we know now that that is not true.
That he was injured -- That this this year yes is huge because the president our president is looking at the situation we have all sorts of things already happening in up part of the world.
What about Yemen.
Well I just such an ambassador John Bolton that he says that if it's true that he was attacked but it true also that he survived.
At that it is good news and the bad news I -- I believe that the civil war there will spread it's now tipped.
And to the point where it's -- anarchy and and tribal.
It's that strategically very important country.
It does not have oil but it's it's right below Saudi Arabia -- is of course the place where the USS Cole was blown its.
Host of an al-Qaeda cell it's very virulent.
You know I I my my believe that you know just what we don't need more problems around the Horn of Africa.
You know the Red Sea there -- we -- all of the commerce goes to the Suez Canal I think that it's really a very serious situation.
And you know it's the last thing the stock market needs I think also.
You know as we look at that part of the world how involved should we be I follow from the State Department PJ Crowley on Twitter I find him to be fascinating do.
And he was tweeting like a fool almost like -- Charlie -- this morning not quite like.
He was tweeting and he was saying stuff like.
We're looking at last straws in places like Yemen and Syria we have got to to get off the fence and jump in -- right.
I'm unconcerned about Russia and China weighing in on Syria saying in essence that we should not step and that the United States that shouldn't.
But as we know that's not family and great highs with a rash that economic ties for decades now to family who the father and the son.
They've had great -- so I think that the US should acknowledge.
-- will request not to step -- but we shouldn't get too.
I was -- she would step in to Yemen.
-- China light telling anyone let anyone step ten competitive but I think I just don't know how don't think the United States can benefit back out without money is that is that.
It's -- all that and it's anarchy despondent to soak up our recent Powell and Arab.
How desperate should our our.
Our concern be that al-Qaeda in Yemen who by the way has -- to hit us riveted GPS point man.
I mean that's that's where the source came from trying to hit this cargo planes that we're gonna land in Chicago.
An -- -- entirely under colon and Clinton administration -- the USS Cole you know I I think that Yemen.
The main street in the way I I don't think it'd be is that it's crucial for instance that -- -- -- Syria has real strategic implications.
And it does have a bit of the east west.
Attention you know going on -- Lebanon and Israel obviously next door.
-- there is much more.
The central but I think the -- you've we can't afford to have a whole the whole bottom of the Arabian Peninsula being at war with -- because it's stunning -- -- bringing in neighbors.
It's going to affect commerce I.
I I think -- we can isolate the country sufficiently.
We we we already go through their aircraft.
With a fine tooth -- following the attempted bombings with the cargo stuff.
But it's you know it's it's another example of how the Arab -- so called has a dark side and you know the Arab summer's gonna be different than there.
Yeah I you know I a lot of times people who watch -- show -- the basis and I put -- spring in quotes.
Not only does that not have to do it this season it's about to end in a few weeks anyway -- -- here.
But it's also awfully optimistic and maybe a little Pollyanna to think that there's bringing toward anything other than change I mean it might not be democracy.
And democracy and we see this democracy in places where there where that per capita per per square mile population is so dense like that this much tougher to women here.
I can't see -- they're going towards the market to meet a thirteen year old kid what -- the child in May you rest the father the grandfather and then they come back and they talk about how great the president is.
You can tell that they were tortured and saying this statement.
I don't know if they're moving towards democracy -- to see chaos and confusion and we should not wait I mean we should watch it but can't afford.
