A Few Good Men

Watching the movie 'A Few Good Men' on TV this evening is making me increasingly nervous as regards accepting the United Nation's invitation to visit the Yemen at the beginning of next month.

My host is the Yemeni Prime Minister and I'm delighted and flattered to have been invited over for this conference but the Foreign Office advisory, shown below suggests that it might not be wise and with the British Embassy operating a skeleton staff I'm wondering whether I should be offering to present myself as a potential Al Qaeda target of opportunity.

What do you think?

'There is reliable evidence that international terrorists are targeting western, including British interests in Yemen. We continue to judge that terrorist attacks against British individuals or organisations there are likely'.

'We therefore advise against all but the most essential travel to Yemen. British nationals visiting or resident in Yemen should consider whether their presence is essential and their personal security arrangements adequate'.
