After reading Mr Gi Joe's letter -in the letters to the editor section- I felt I must write in support of the Yemen Times efforts to ensure some honest exchange of views. Although I understand some of the writer's 'apparent' perceptions of the situation in Iraq, the truth, nevertheless, is often very grey!
Having lived in Yemen 16 years I can testify to the sincere aims of the paper's editor and staff in endeavoring to create a climate and forum for free speech. Such institutions are always precious whether they are in Yemen, or anywhere in the small world!
