Trouble in Yemen – it’s not funny but…

Following is a WSJ summary of recent events in Yemen:

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and the country’s top general are hashing out a political settlement in which both men would resign from their positions within days in favor of a civilian-led transitional government, according to three people familiar with the situation.

The outlines of that peaceful transition emerged amid rising tension over the standoff between the President Saleh and Gen. Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, who earlier this week broke ranks and declared his support for the array of protesters demanding that the president step down immediately.

Here’s IFO’s mental image upon reading that:
Saleh: Okay, you resign first.
General: No, you resign first.
Saleh: No, you first.
General: You first!
Saleh: You!
General: Bang!

This whole Middle East/North Africa thing is all a joke. Does anybody know what’s happening? Can you say “Wag the Dog?”
