Turks in Yemen

Not a lot of time, as I've got a lot of work before a Friday deadline. The big 3-2 had very little, none of which I'll link to, but I will say Khaled al-Hammadi (al-Quds al-Arabi) had a piece on Salih's visit to Pakistan and China (he is back now). (Oh and the White Sox won again, I take a couple of days off and look what happens.)

But now for today's proverb, again from al-'Akwa's book, a very famous one:

اليمن مقبرة الأتراك
Translation:
Yemen is the graveyard of the Turks.
(This refers to two ill-advised attempts by the Turks to occupy North Yemen, never a very good idea.)
