So why isnt there any media coverage on Bahrain, the last time i checked tanks rolled in from the Saudi Arabia kingdom the crackdown on protesters is pretty heavy still, it seems that the government is winning in Bahrain, i guess since Bahrain is near Saudi Arabia that Revolution doesn't count.

my honest guess is they're too busy with the economy and london rioting

I did find some sources through google news search though

all headline news
the guardian
globe and mail

this article says protests have been going on since February - we all know how MSM slacks after the first 3 days

oh but I did actually find a cnn article from yesterday

And while Abdullah has condemned the Syrian crackdown, Saudi Arabia sent troops to Bahrain in March to help its neighboring Gulf monarchy suppress anti-government protesters there. Bahrain's Sunni Muslim rulers accused Shiite-led Iran of fueling demonstrations among the island kingdom's Shiite majority, an accusation the protesters denied

does that count?

There has been a desperate attempt to hide US hypocrisy, in one hand in Yemen US is bombing revolutionaries, in the other hand in Libya US is bombing the Libyan government. Bahrain is the same, US has fully supported Saudi Arabia in its attempt to crush the revolutionaries, but don't loose hope, although you don't see it on the news, reports suggests that Bahrainis are back in the streets holding mass rallies.

It's because Bahrain is Shi'ite and so is Iran.

But we aren't to busy to invade Libya for the same exact reasons (and soon Syria). That excuse just doesn't fly here...

MSM has been talking about Libya, Syria and Egypt every single day until things "got done". In the case of Bahrain, it's a blind eye. Not a day goes by where I don't hear Gaddafi being referred to as the great Satan by MSM.

What happened to imposing a no fly zone? When did the definition of a no fly zone become straight-up bombing raids on infrastructure, civilians, and industry? UNSC resolution 1970 calls for us to PROTECT civilian lives, not endanger.

Of course he is...They are the ones who put him in power. You think a Shi'ite majority country would elect themselves a Sunni monarch? Yea, maybe when pigs fly..
