When a Marxist country merges with a non-Marxist one, you get a more permissive society. Right? Wrong, when it is the two Yemens.North Yemen was a poor, reclusive state on the Arabian peninsula. South Yemen was the cosmopolitan port and British colony of Aden, but when independence came it went Marxist. Liquor flowed in from Djibouti and beer was locally brewed.Then came merger a year ago and Moscow's withdrawal of influence. South Yemen began to change. Pious Northerners came south and demanded compliance with Islamic law. The brewery will convert to non-alcoholic beverages.

On a day he described as "not too hot, calm seas," Navy Cmdr. Stephen F. Murphy surveyed the sparkling water ahead of his ship, the guided missile destroyer USS Mahan, as it embarked on aggressive anti-pirate operations launched this week by the U.S. Navy. Murphy, a Catonsville native and Naval Academy graduate, is patrolling the Gulf of Aden, a million square miles of water squeezed between the coast of Somalia and the Arabian Peninsula. Each year 26,000 merchant ships and oil tankers traverse this vital sea lane of global commerce.

CONFIDENT superpowers do not let terrorism against their forces go unsolved or unpunished. The United States must show its uniformed personnel that it will identify and hunt down whoever took the lives of U.S. sailors in Aden. Confident superpowers also do not get rattled, take reprisals against innocents or pick targets by guesswork. They do not play into the hands of manipulative terrorists who seek to provoke greater enmity. All Americans should endorse the temperate determination of President Clinton to "find out who was responsible and hold them accountable."

BERLIN - Somali pirates firing automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades hijacked yet another ship in the Gulf of Aden yesterday, this time seizing a chemical tanker. A German military helicopter from a nearby warship arrived in time to pull three security guards out of the water, but not soon enough to prevent the hijacking of the ship and the rest of the crew. The latest attack, in which even trained security personnel aboard could not deter the pirates, demonstrated the urgent need for coordinated action by governments from Cairo to Berlin.

LITTLE ADEN, Yemen -- American and Yemeni investigators were encamped yesterday at a remote boat ramp seeking clues to the identity of the two suicide bombers who launched a small boat into the water before heading into Aden's harbor for the attack on the destroyer Cole that killed 17 U.S. sailors. As Navy officials in Washington revised their initial accounts of how the bombers blindsided the Cole, agents of the FBI and other U.S. specialists set up a cluster of dark green tents beside the boat ramp, six miles across the Bay of Aden from the harbor mooring point where the Cole was attacked.

Northern Yemen is the country many Americans remember as Yemen. It won independence from Turkey in 1918 and has a village-based economy, many people living as their ancestors did. Southern Yemen is what Americans used to call Aden. It was a British colony and port on the sea route to India, long in rebellion. The British left in 1967, replaced by an indigenous Marxist regime.Northern Yemen, on the Red Sea, is mostly west of Southern Yemen, on the Gulf of Aden, which extends north and south of it. Southern Yemen is twice as big. Northern Yemen has five times as many people.

WASHINGTON - A former top U.S. commander in the Persian Gulf defended a decision to refuel Navy ships in Yemen, the site of last week's deadly attack on the destroyer USS Cole, saying yesterday that it was less dangerous than neighboring countries and noting that Yemeni officials are taking steps to deal with their terrorist problems.
