The Action in Bahrain - A Drama Foretold

This post follows up on an earlier recent post three days ago. In that, I had said that the Saudi ruling elite could be expected to crack down heavily and early on any incipient Shia protests in their own country. Well, they were even more jitery than I thought. So as to not give the Shias in their own country any ideas of rebellion, they have sent their troops to Bahrain to help quell the Shia rebellion there. All this is playing into Iranian hands. If they interfere, they now have justification; and if they don't, they occupy moral high ground - they can simultaneously, covertly, stoke the fires in Bahrain and even Saudi Arabia. 

I had said, the next big theatre is Bahrain. That is proving to be right.
