Explaining the biggest threat to security in Yemen, in the Christian Science Monitor:

"With all [its] problems, the most severe threat to Yemen's future is its water crisis ... Experts say that Sana'a, Yemen's capital, is likely to run out of water by 2020. [If] the U.S. really wants to fight terror in Yemen, it must address its water shortage ... As the crisis progresses, Yemen stands to become even more violent and desperate--a situation that directly affects U.S. national security."
