This is just as big a deal as threats from Sunni extremists. Most of Saudi oilfields are in eastern province of Saudi Arabia. It was Shiite land before Sunni Saudis took over and expelled many of them. If Shiites rise up and take over eastern provinces, so goes the control of oilfields.
The “Day of Rage” is March 11th. It is trying to be organized through social media. etc.. Our generation will be forever changed should it go the way of Egypt. This is uncomfortable to say the least.

Nothing new here. Throughout the ages Muslims have always settled their differences at the end of a sword. Makes no difference whether it be with each other (Shiite vs. Sunni) or with us “infidels”. And with Iran bank-rolling and facilitating the Saudi uprising it’s bound to get worse before it gets better.
