Yemen’s secessionist Southern Movement is undergoing a radical transformation that threatens the country’s stability. But a military campaign against the movement would only further inflame its supporters and increase support for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. A political solution is required that addresses the unresolved problems from the country’s poorly-executed unification in the early 1990s.

Dealing with the Southern Movement  simply as a security threat linked to the  problem of terrorism, without addressing the underlying political  problems that gave rise to it, can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
