The degree to which some peace lovers go to prove how much they really love peace is truly a sight to behold.
(Reuters) – Bahrain’s king declared martial law on Tuesday as his government struggled to quell an uprising by the island’s Shi’ite Muslim majority that has drawn in troops from fellow Sunni-ruled neighbour Saudi Arabia.
The United States, a close ally of both Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, said it was concerned about reports of growing sectarianism in the country, home to the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet. It dispatched Assistant Secretary of State Jeff Feltman to Bahrain to push for dialogue to resolve the crisis.
Speaking in Cairo, U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton said she had told her Saudi counterpart to promote talks to resolve the situation.
Anybody hear from The Commander-In-Chief Of The Armed Forces Of The United States regarding this little matter ? Oh right. It’s only The Fifth Fleet with the bull’s-eye on their neck and not the civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the military.
Nothing to see here…… Again.
