It is obvious that the presence of former President Saleh in Charge of the General People's Conference "GPC" allows him to participate in political activity, if his huge military, financial, and media capabilities are taken into consideration. He has also his supporters that don't differ from him in their vision towards affairs management, and their way of conviction that nothing is better than the existing things.
We are facing a progressive reality of recycling the crisis in a way that will hopefully not be more disastrous than before.
In fact, the question is no longer limited to the margins of returning the political tension through the momentum of the multiple media that reaches the verge of chaos, but it is also realized in the failure to defuse the ticking military bomb through the restructure of the military and the security institutions to end the split of the army.
These facts mean simply that Saleh and his supporters can put thousands of stumbling blocks on the way of the legitimacy resulting from the sincere Gulf good faith and its consequences of consensus.
We are before two levels of his and supporters' ability to disrupt the efforts of the Reconciliation Government "RG". The first one is connected with the relative presence of his supporters through some of the members of the government, and the second one is linked to their parallel existence in the military, security, media and financial institutions.
The present reality expresses the naked truth, that is why the former President and his supporters have ,during the revolution year strengthened their control on the financial and military institutions, drained all sources of public media and replaced it by a new media reminding of the malignant consensus prevailing in Lebanon. This state will be booby-trapped with mutual skepticism and the resorting to absolute power.
This is in addition to its probability of freezing the natural community development. This state is completely incompatible with the spirit of the GCC initiative which differs from al-Taif agreement of Lebanon that had led to depriving the modern citizenship as a criterion for identity and replaced it by the hateful religious sectarian identity.
Everyone knows that the agreement of the Lebanese- al-Taif came after a 15 years' civil war. It came also to legitimize the state on a doctrine sectarian basis at all levels.
By implementation and experience it has established velvet war lords, with white coats and colored neckties, and finally led Lebanon into the present state of no peace and war.
It also changed the religious sectarian princes into small states within a country that cannot tolerate all this fragmentation. Lebanon with an area of one thousand kilometers is a model of unique multiple sectarianism, religions and races, that descended from different cultural strains forming a wonderful addition to the Arab history and culture.
If the Lebanese rehearsal is applied to Yemen as some are betting, Yemen will witness the more ugly period of dangerous tribal decline and will change into cantons that will seek to disrupt development, by fighting for the interests of corrupt political circles.
If the state started implementing the consensus visions of the GCC initiative, which is compatible with the geographical and historical laws, without annulling the earthly and heavenly wisdoms, the country is sure to witness unprecedented breakthrough in growth.
The present situation cannot continue in Yemen because it creates a new reality that the Yemenis are not used to and that is not needed according to their historical and political traditions and even their modern institutionalism.
It is swaying within a middle range, as the security control is subdued by the wisdom of the people, and the efforts of some sincere political and security leaders is incomplete and is dwindling at an alarming rate.
Yemen is in need of the immediate return of the security control in its natural and not oppressive perspective.
Such return requires a series of security arrangements, accompanied with reforms to continue resolving the clashes between those who are used to the culture of power , wealth and illusions and the people's representatives as well as the wise ones at the GPC.
It should also include all the social sectors that acquired legitimacy of belonging to the aspirations of the Yemeni street for getting out of the vicious circle of poverty and misery. It should also deep-root the visions of the GCC initiative which has established the peaceful power transition, though it didn't put a clear roadmap for dealing with the new developments. This represents a heavy duty of how to establish the new legality and face those who are conspiring from behind the dark rooms.
The number of those doesn't exceed the fingers of one hand, however they are able to confuse the whole country. That is why they should be beleaguered through dialogue and law. The simple road bandits, thieves, tribal road blockers and kidnappers are just an echo to those who challenge the present with the mentality of the past, and who are against the interests of their homeland.
There is no much time to be spent in the current fatal political viscosity, because the Yemeni economy is still under the mercy of surprises and changes. The public life is gradually disrupted by weapons spread and the increase of those who benefit from the present chaos. The role of the central government is shrinking because of the continuation of political machination and the excessive personalization of the different issues as well as the recycling of the culture of the recent past.
These are the ugly features of a reality that is suffering the most comprehensive and dangerous state of labor. That is why it is inevitable to speed up holding the dialogue conference, and the rapid abandonment of the miserable central state. There is a need for a federal legislation that will change Yemen into geographical political regions within a unified state that opens a new horizons of development, and free the remote regions from the arrogance of the "holy center", creating a true national partnership that is protected by the law and the constitution.
