Yemen: Deja Vu All Over Again

Bennis, Phyllis
January 2010
Foreign Policy in Focus;1/13/2010, p1
The article discusses the plan of the U.S. government to send 70 million U.S. dollars in aid to Yemen for counterterrorism and security purposes. According to the author, former U.S. President George H. W. Bush offered economic assistance and military aid packages to governments long denied such support because of civil wars or repression. However, Yemen refused to accept the assistance and the U.S. government decided to cut its entire budget for the Yemenis. The author believes that the Yemeni military will not reverse the legacy of anti-Americanism.
