Bahrain is too rich. They need to redistribute their assets to the “poor people” and “the children” in Egypt aka the money-grabbing-power-hungry new worlders what their money.

In 1979, the Shiite mullahs' seizure of power in Iran, across the water, raised that fear dramatically.

They've been in a state of "dramatically raised fear" for more than 30 years? Hoe kay.

Those that think protesting like this will happen in Saudi and it will get reported in the media are mistaken.

Saudi might have a sudden decline in population, that would be the only significant effect from such an attempt.

"An ill omen for the Saudis"

Yeah, where will the Saudis go for whores on Wednesday nights? They built a $4 billion causeway across the Gulf so they could drive to Manama.

"Bourguiba Square in Tunis, Tahrir Square in Cairo, Azadi Square in Tehran -- and now Pearl Square in Manama, capital of Bahrain."

Ever since the Tianamen Square, which they prefer to forget now, the media just loves the squares. With well-defined boundaries, those revolutions seem neat, hence easy to write about, and allow for an easy filing of reports: you know where to go for the events, no informants are necessary...
