Yemen is prettier than it looks on TV. If you drive the length of this rugged nation—from the border with Saudi Arabia in the north to the sparkling turquoise of the Gulf of Aden in the south—the landscape outside your window will slip from something resembling New Mexico, to West Texas, to Baja California, until finally you’ll arrive in a place that is as desolate and craggy as the moon. Somewhere around Qa’tabah, a crumbling town a hundred-odd miles south of the Yemeni capital of Sana’a, the ubiquitous portraits of President Ali Abdullah Saleh—plastered on billboards and storefronts and gas station pumps—will slowly give way to a smattering of South Yemen flags hung from bedroom windows and painted on boulders, an open act of defiance against the government up north.
