Just in case you missed it...

As I read last night the Saudi's are apparently sending 1,000 troops into Bahrain to quell the Shiite rebels there. Those rebels have said that this equates to a declaration of war. Why should you care?

Well, Bahrain also happens to be home to the US Navy's 5th Fleet.

So imagine how this would play out in different parts of the world.

Take this sentence - _________ is sending 1,000 troops into _______ where the US has a major military presence. Now insert N. Korea and S. Korea and imagine the outcome. However, when the aggressor has 20% of the world's proven oil reserves we appear to bite our tongue.

This story might get lost in all of the news out of Japan today but it's one to follow closely.
