Latest twist in the Iran crisis: Foment in Bahrain

CounterBahrain is an island nation in the Persian Gulf, connected to Saudi Arabia by a causeway and to the rest of the world by a major sea port. It's just across the Gulf from Iran, and about 15 per cent Persian by population. For this and a variety of other reasons, it represents the first line of defense against Persian expansion in the region. If Bahrain falls to Iran, we're all in trouble.

One thing nobody is writing about is the security situation for the US Fifth Fleet Headquarters. Most assigned Americans are housed not on the base itself, but in surrounding apartment buildings. This has got to have somebody in Central Command worried.
