While the situation in Japan has dominated the news, global unrest continues. Bahrain has been having demonstrations for weeks now.

Bahrain invited Saudi Arabian troops to quell unrest in Bahrain. Martial law has been declared.

The latest events seem to mark a new phase in the crisis that has paralysed the tiny kingdom since January. Demonstrators have drawn strength from the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt that saw autocratic regimes toppled by popular protests. However, unlike in either place, Bahrain's protests have taken on a strong sectarian dimension.

The ruling minority is almost exclusively Sunni, while the majority of the population is Shia. The latter feels disenfranchised and disadvantaged by an establishment which it claims does not represent its interests.

Maybe Shia Iran will quietly arm or even intercede preventing their Sunni neighbors from over running while maybe indirectly Stirring the majority Shia to disrupt the flow of oilwells back home in Saudi Arabia presenting a more urgent need back across that bridge. That will drive oil up and give the three headed imperial monster USUKISRAEL its desire for invasion of Iran setting off WWIII?

Maybe I am missing something, but why would Bahrain want the Saudis to intervene in a matter like this?

That would be like the US asking Canada to send troops to Wisconsin.....
