Re: Uprisings in Bahrain....The next egypt?

Bahrain's revolts will be in no way like Egypt's. The early, bloody crackdown is likely to not be the last. The US will continue to urge Bahrain to seek a peaceful resolution, but that is all they will do. Bahrain is too important of an ally, and plays too big a role in the US acquisition of oil from the Middle East.


On a more personal note, my cousin was living there with her Lebanese First Mate husband until recently when she found out she was pregnant. They decided to move back to Canada for the health care and citizenship.
