So, Yemens top guy takes a flier out of the country and the happy people dance sing and kill some cows.

Question is, are we (US) happy about this? Are we supportive of the happy dancers? Did or Do we like the old guy? Why did they kill cows? WTF...cows for goodness sake.

Do you get the feeling the entire middle east and all these countries are basically nuts and incapable of any form of self government?

Read on:

Protesters danced, sang and slaughtered cows in the central square of Yemen’s capital Sunday to celebrate the departure of the country’s authoritarian leader for medical treatment after he was wounded in a rocket attack on his compound.

There was no official announcement on who was acting as head of state. But under Yemen’s constitution, the vice president takes over for up to 60 days when the head of state is absent. Vice President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi met Sunday with U.S. Ambassador Gerald Michael Feierstein, the strongest indication yet that he is in charge.

Yemen’s conflict began as a peaceful uprising that the government at times used brutal force to suppress. It transformed in recent weeks to a more violent struggle for power when formal tribal allies of President Ali Abdullah Saleh turned against him and transformed the streets of the capital Sanaa into a war zone.

Other forces rose against Saleh at the same time. There were high-level defections within his military, and Islamist fighters took over at least one town in the south in the past two weeks. Saleh blamed the tribal rivals for the attack on his compound Friday that killed 11 bodyguards and wounded at least five senior government officials in addition to the president.

The protesters celebrated Sunday at Sanaa’s Change Square, the epicenter of a nationwide protest movement since mid-February calling for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down immediately after nearly 33 years.

In the long run this is very good news. The Arab world is becoming used to the idea that they can have self rule and democracy. They are breaking out of the previous conservative autocracy's and demanding western values in their governments. Although imperfect it will allow them to ditch extremists via the ballot box and not the end of a gun.

There will be some hard line conservative religious leaders elected but the majority of people will never support these types again in the long run.

So....like if we want to "settle our differences" with Yemen, we need to send our designated Ox killer and few old skank steers over and have a dance/ox killin?

Would that work for other bunches of these people?

Yes, slaughtering an animal for some sort of celebration is the mark of a barbaric civilization.

How is it a "reach?" They eat the cattle, you know. Actually, they probably give some of it to the poor.

Maybe it's because birds are inferior species.

Memorial Day anyone?

What little I've read about the Yemen situation suggests an unfortunate likelihood that it may dissolve into something more like Somalia -- a tribal backwater that can be easily infiltrated and used by Al Queda.

Let's hope not.
