Bahrain Government Links Pipeline Explosion To Iran
Stratfor ^

Posted on 11/11/2017 12:38:22 PM PST by JP1201

Bahrain said on Nov. 11 that an explosion which caused a fire at its main oil pipeline on Nov. 10 was caused by "terrorist" sabotage, linking the unprecedented attack to Iran, Reuters reported. A key Western ally and host to the U.S. Fifth Fleet, Sunni Muslim-ruled Bahrain has for years grappled with protests and sporadic violence coming from its Shiite majority. Iran denies any role in the Gulf island kingdom's unrest.

Bahrain is one of the most horrifying places to live on earth. It’s an absolute dictatorship that is basically an open air prison for the indigenous people. The government is importing foreign Muslim extremists, many from Pakistan, to work in the police state apparatus and then giving them citizenship in an attempt to replace the population with people who support a Taliban type ideology.

It’s like a globalists’ fantasy come true. Replace the population with immigrants at gun point and giving life sentences and torture to native Bahrainis who resist.

Just a little historical note here. The Ottoman Empire conducted several bombings of their confederates and non-combatants and left evidence to implicate the Triple Entente (the allies.)

(Just sayin’.)

I think he’s alluding to the fact that the bulk of the “native” population is Shi’a and the ruling royal family is Sunni. The rulers are importing a large number of foreign Sunnis.

I’m guessing you’ve never been to Bahrain.

I wondered how long it would take to figure this
wasn’t an accident.

I've been to Bahrain over a dozen times, and that's far from my impression. It's hyperbole at best. The Bahrain monarchy are certainly not the most benevolent rulers, but they are dealing with Iranian backed Hezbollah fomenting revolution among their Shia majority. If the monarchy fails to suppress Hezbollah and their sympathizers, they will not be in power for long and Iran will have another foothold in the region.

KSA and the other GCC states are not going to accept an Iran supported satellite on their borders and they will likely do whatever it takes to prevent it. March with a Hezbollah flag in Bahrain and you will probably not like the consequences.
