One response to “Calling Iran’s bluff

  1. Agreed, Saudis are scared, their days of dictatorship are numbered. They have long oppressed their people. However with regards to to Iran’s involvement in Bahrain, there is no evidence of it:

    WikiLeaks cables show no evidence of Iran’s hand in Bahrain unrest
    US sources dismissive of Bahraini allegation, and as early as 2008 noted tensions between its Shia majority and Sunni rulers
