Where’s Obama’s no-fly zone?
Bahrain is small enough that it would be physically possible to march all the Shiite protesters on to boats and deport them to Iran.
If we’re lucky the Saudis will be able to contain this. Otherwise the Iranians will have defacto rule of Bahrain and the 5th Fleet will be looking for a new home.
Push the Shias into the water and they can swim to Iran.
Get ready, it’s not often you’ll see me type this:
And thank you, Saudi Arabia.
Send them all to mecca and then vaporize it.
The big wars can’t be so easily predicted. Usually it’s something most people overlook. Everyone assumes it’s the US or Israel attacking Iran but more and more it looks like it’s going to be a Sunni-Shite Showdown. The US has the Sunni’s back big time. They made their first fast Shite friends in Iraq. The rest of the Shites line up behind Iran. Iran is in a race with the clock to develop a nuke to threaten the Sunnis with and embolden Shites in Sunni lands to rebel.
Meanwhile Sunni Saudi Arabia is showing off their shiny American Armaments in and around Bahrain. The war will start when Iran starts publicly yapping at Saudi Arabia. If Stuxnet worked, Saudi Arabia may start it up with Iran in a conventional showdown. I think Saudi Arabian army with it’s 30 some odd years of hardcore American Advisement would give Tehran the beatdown of it’s life.
After a glance at their site and some of the other articles they've put on there, I believe I'll wait for a more reliable source to find out what's really going on in Bahrain.
