So this is a good thing, - - riiight ? Or just maybe?!? :confused:

A true demonstration of the people's sentiments or keeping the lid on the pressure cooker with threats of zero tolerance and hundreds of police/military & checkpoints in Riyadh, Jeddah ...?

Curious to hear the Admin's response.

And now they've sent 1,000 Saudi troops & 500 UAE police officers into Bahrain to apparently protect the Sunni monarchy, in what some on the island are calling an "invasion". Opponents of Bahrain’s Sunni dynasty called the move a declaration of war.

The White House said Monday it did not consider the Saudi entry into Bahrain an invasion. Carney said, "We urge the government of Bahrain, as we have repeatedly, as well as other GCC countries, to exercise restraint.”

Seeing how we've most likely got some of our USAID trainees in 'political competitiveness":rolleyes: on the Shi'ite side in both countries, how long can the US ComOrg-in-Chief keep playing both sides? I think Marvin S.'s signature line "Everyone's friend is no one's friend" is going to have to kick in somewhere.
How long will the monarchies say nothing about that, and is PBO playing with matches right next to the gas pumps? :confused:
