Unrest is spreading in the Middle East

I decided to discuss the situation of each Arab country where unrest is spreading. Starting with Yemen.
Why is Yemen different than the rest?
Opposition forces have a less of a chance to unite due to several factors:
The rural nature of the country
The rate of illiteracy
The Shia rebellion in the North
Let's not forget North and South Yemen united in 1990 and the South is always screaming discrimination.
When the president Ali Abdel Allah Salah warns that the country would fall into the hands of extremisms, the international community is inclined to believe him.
