Update: Hell breaking out all over, Ibb (drive by shootings at protesters), Hodeidah, Taiz (snipers). Urgent need for medical supplies in Taiz. Wilding regime thugs in Sanaa break into shops. Some are suggesting Saleh gave the green light after the NYT article on US shift in position to seeking Saleh’s departure from office. The determination was made that Saleh is unlikely to enact reforms, which is accurate. At every crisis juncture over the last years, with every new declaration of sincerity, Saleh never enacted reforms, only smoke, mirrors and propaganda. The extreme violence follows the transfer of General Qiran from Aden to Taiz .
