Eyewitnesses: 30 tanks spotted en route to Bahrain from Saudi Arabia

Bahrain--Eyewitnesses have reported seeing an estimated 30 tanks being transported into Bahrain from Saudi Arabia on Monday night at around 6:45pm local time. The tanks were sighted along the King Fahd causeway, which links the small island-nation of Bahrain to Saudi Arabia.

Commuters traveling along the 25-km causeway were held up due to the presence of “15 tank carriers carrying two tanks each .ing towards Bahrain.” Civilian eyewitnesses could not, however, confirm whether the tanks belonged to the Saudi military.

The presence of Saudi military hardware in Bahrain is considered highly unusual.



This is an obvious indication of how concerned the Saudi's must be with the situation in the ME.

Note the Saudis just sent tanks. They have NOT invaded as some sources have reported.

30 tanks? Has this been confirmed by other sources? If true this may simply be one country purchasing arms from another. Although if this has to do with the protests then 30 tanks is enough to kick off a war.

This is interesting...
I found a third source for this, which may have been the original source.
en.rian.ru...

I wonder what is really going on?

Saudis are probably just trying to make sure there are no refugees coming in .. guarding the boarder from inside Bahrain .. as it were ...

Saudis are not exactly known for the millitary thinking .. or any thinking for that matter .. they can easily overreact by sending 30 tanks for a small job of just guarding a border ...
