Protesters rally in Yemen

Hundreds of anti-government protesters gathered Sunday near a university at the Yemeni capital for a 10th consecutive day, witnesses said.

Some of them chanted, "First Mubarak, now Ali," referring to Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and Hosni Mubarak, who recently resigned as president of Egypt after nearly 30 years in power.

Pro-government demonstrators were also gathering near Sanaa University, according to Adnan Al-Nahari, a student at the campus.

    All Egypt and other countries need for a role model of democracy is Wisconsin. People in the streets democrats hiding in Rockford t baggers bussing in and Walker threatens to use National Guard. Show them how great democracy is.

    Those university kids should fight for the rights of women, children and infidels and for literacy for all Yemenites, if they've learned anything worth.

    Sorry once again liberals. But the people doing these protest, get on their knees and pray for hours each day. Your little escapade is immaginary, this is not a victory for liberalism, this is a victory for freedom. Freedom as Jesus intended it to be. And it will be violated. Sorry liberals. You loose quit pretending. Your game is over, thanks to Egypt.
