The Arab spring is still creeping, not only in Yemen but also in the Whole Arab world which discovers everyday a maze whose overlapping puzzles cannot be resolved within a short period in a way which made millions of people to bet on achievements within a short time.
The autocratic republics are still in the intensive care unit and not yet dead. It is refusing to leave this world within a blink of an eye, after remaining in power for decades, infesting the Arab community with the corruption cancer. What happened will be in the gospel of history as nation that had once dominated and diminished.
Yemen was twice lucky, once because the parties in the legal political arena, had lived up to their responsibility and understood the need for a brave concessions for the sake of the homeland. The other is because the Arab region's countries, supported by the international legitimacy got involved in the problem out of an honest broker's position, becoming the supporters and observers of the importance of the backyard of Arabia.
This is disclosed by the GCC initiative which remained on the table, despite the non-acceptance of the some of the regime's parties and their disguised refusal.
Once the issue went to the Security council the bold symbols of the regime retreated, betting on time, deception and obstruction. This is evident nowadays, in the suspicious spread of the so-called al Qaeda, especially in the southern governorates and those adjacent to the north. Added to these are the deliberate power interruptions in most of the Yemeni cities , the mining of roads in front of the Government of national Reconciliation, which finds itself unable to resolve the consecutive demand issues, in light of a heavy legacy of immediate dues.
The legally elected President through consensus presidential elections, based on the GCC initiative, finds himself facing a disobedience of another blatant kind as the republican decrees that he had issued for the army and security forces restructure, in accordance with the GCC provisions, is defiantly refused. This refusal reached the limits of mutiny against the legitimacy which represents the corner stone for reform, political appeasing and promotion of the legal consensus.
These decisions are linked to the army restructure so as to change it into a national institution under the control of the Defense Ministry, where the personal, family and regional allegiance is ended so as to pave the way for shifting into a professional army that abides by political decisions and defend the country, instead of besieging the cities, erecting missiles in its outskirts and pointing cannons and howitzers to the heads of the citizens as it is the case now in the capital Sana'a.
In a related issue the official media reflects this situation, where the partisan allegiance reproduces itself in a funny bewailing way. The Ministry of Information is suffering greatly from the dismantling of its observational and professional potentials. The same thing applies to the financial and commercial institutions which had suffered for a long time from cloning of parallel institutions. There is a similar bank to the Central Bank. There is also a facility similar to the Ministry of Trade, such as it is in the duplicated case of the army which is not fully obedient to the Ministry of Defense.
The former President Saleh was dedicated to directing the country through a small shadow government, that marginalizes the role of the overt government and making it a mere executive institution that carries out what it receives. This is what the prudent statesman Faraj Bin Ghanem had earlier known, making him to resign in six months when he found that the Prime Minister is only an executive secretary who implements the directions of the small team-work around the President. Bin Ghanem had demanded the dismissal of a number of Ministers because they are not statesmen, but his demand met deaf ears, making him to leave the field for those stamped with corruption and injustice.
Today after all the fatigue, exhaustion and tolerance, Yemen is still living in the intensively grey zone because the head of the former regime refuses to abide by his commitments.
The fires that are started everywhere, points out to its incendiaries, the intended destruction to the services wouldn't come from normal persons. It is the work of mercenaries and banditry bands of kidnapping, that is run from dark rooms. Regarding punishing people in their source of living and recycling their life, it is the most savage equation of refusal to change.
