I just heard from Bahrain that it was not just the reglular army who shot all these people in Bahrain.
Apparently, even more Sunni mercenaries has been flown in to Bahrain from all over the Middle East since the protests in Bahrain started.
Bahrain's royal family has long relied on Sunni mercenaries from countries such as Syria, Jordan, Yemen and Pakistan to staff Bahrain's army, police
and security service. They serve in its security forces in exchange for citizenship and well-paid employment there.
The majority of Bahrain's Muslim population are Shiites, the power remains in the hands of the Sunni royal family and their hired foreign mercenaries
(66% Sunni and 33% Shia)
In 2010, Bahrain's population grew to 1.234 million, out of which more than 666,172 (54%) were non-nationals
It could be interesting to keep an eye on Iran in the coming days for any official statements and public reactions regarding this, since Shiites now
are getting slaughtered in Pearl Square and in the streets of Manama by Sunni foreign mercenaries.
Perhaps this could eventually spill over to Iraq because of the fragile situation between Sunni and Shia there?
This is a potential powder keg situation for the whole ME.
OTOH! Divide et impera - Cui bono?
