Saudi Arabia's regional 'union' plan under fire

Tens of thousands of people in Bahrain publicly demonstrated against the Saudi Arabia-Bahrain 'union' plan. Yesterday, massive rallies were also held in Tehran and other cities in Iran to denounce the initiative. Besides hosting a fairly well-known foreign military base and 'inviting' foreign troops to 'restore' internal order, 'Bahrain now also employs a foreign police 'adviser' as well as policemen, 'who use lethal and non'-lethal instruments imported from foreign countries for crowd control.
