I've been out of the loop since yesterday lunchtime. So I'm more than a little surprised to see that the Bahraini government has invited troops from Saudi and the UAE in. I'm not at all surprised to see that the Bahraini government has declared a three month state of emergency, that it is all kicking off in the capital again and that Sky News is reporting that a Saudi troop has been shot dead by protestors.
My question is this; What sort of despicable monster invites troops in to their country to use force against their own citizens?
More to the point, what sort of despicable monster answers the call and actually sends their troops for this purpose?
Bugger the global economy, the sooner these revolting, backwards, mediaeval despots run out of oil and have no money to put their populations down, the better. Forget the ecological concerns, we need to get a viable alternative to oil bloody quick so we can stop doing business with these hateful people.
