Yemen is facing a new plight that threatens with undermining the settlement and returning the different old dilemmas, including riving the country into the unknown and the surprises of two president; the one who doesn't believe power had been transferred into his hands and another who refuses to believe that he had been overthrown from power.
The situations in Yemen are not yet settled. The political crisis is not resolved, the revolutionaries at the change squares have not come to a final decision and there are no evidence that the GCC settlement is accomplishing its noble ends.
It is clear that it ended up in power sharing through the revival of the ministerial quota, similar to the one that followed the achievement of unity, ensuring the dominance of the disputes of the traditional forces on the expense of the future issues. It shows their control on the expense of the modern forces who have the real interest in change and the formulation of features of the future so as to tailor it in accordance with their buried dreams and aspirations.
Yemen is a country that is overrun by deep social changes, not only because of the population studies which disclose that 70 percent of its adult population is between 16-30, but also because the Yemeni legislations consider the eligibility age for political participation starts from the age of 16. This tells that the ruling sector in Yemen does not represent the youth.
It also shows its failure to understand their life's characteristic , which has the eagerness for adventure in order to discover themselves and satisfy them from their different era's rapid developments.
The ruling class within the last 33 years was unable to set educational, cultural or economic treatments so as to compensate for the losses that the young generations have encountered .
Its interest was focused on the discrimination between the classes that receive progressive education by sending them to the best international universities, civil and military institutes and academies, while the rest of the people's sons receive their education at the hands of incompetent teachers through primitive underdeveloped curriculums.
In its final stages, the former regime reached a stage of confidence to the extent of planning to announce Yemen as a protectorate in which power is transferred through succession.
The leader of the former regime imagined that he was cleverer than his people whom he exposed to illiteracy. He thought that his family tree was ripe enough and the hijacked republic has become obedient within his pocket, where his arrogance made him think that he can easily pass his visions on his dignitaries, however he found himself to be wrong.
He was by resistance from his close allies, and was struck by surprise, especially that the sons of Abdullah al-Ahmar before and during their joining the revolution, provided sacrifices that showed evidence of abstention from succession quotas.
Saleh was expecting a zeal for power from them, and he is known for shrewdness in dealing with the individuals' desires.
As Hamid al-Ahmar had distanced himself again from changing the revolution into an investment project, and abstained from rushing to personal ambitions, the need forced the former President to revive the epicenters of conflicts, starting with al-Qaeda and ending up with the extremists of the Southern Movement.
It is said that human nature never changes. The former President who is now giving himself the title of a leader, had ruled Yemen on two bases; the first is (never build a state that curbs your power, and a party that turns against you,) the second is (the world remains in need for you as long as you create epicenters and remain able to control them.)
Could one say that Yemen is facing a new dilemma of undermining the settlement and fallback into the old plights. Wasn't this schism the subject of our early proposals as well as the predictions of the widely spread media, in foremost of them Al-Watan newspaper?
If the answer is yes, why do some fail to read properly what is written and why should the reviews and and reconsiderations not be within the strategies of those who are keen about Yemen's security and the future of its people?
History does not only repeat itself, but it revives the worst of its comedies as it emerges from inside its premature thoughts and healing from half solutions. Our yesterday's question was; Yemen to where? , however today the question is; for how long?
We hear the world speaking of the complications before the settlement and after it, but we don't see serious search in the essence of the complications and their reasons.
Those have undertaken preliminary assessments which dealt with the outside peel of the events, depending on politics to move the security issues and pushed the security far the back at the end of the change issues.
Added to that, money stirs up personal ambitions and leads to the personal desires without thinking of the negative consequences which it can create when it becomes a source of nuisance as well as its damaging outcome for Yemen by hindering its ability to escape underdevelopment.
That is why we repeat our previous question of; Yemen to where; and for how long?
