Saudi Arabia reacts to very fast-moving times

Reportedly, Saudi Arabia's monarch Abdullah has announced a charity programme in reaction to external challenges and domestic problems.

Meanwhile, well-known journalist Jackson Diehl reveals in Washington Post that there is "a real possibility", for Saudi Arabia to move troops into Bahrain to put down protestors and prop up the besieged regime.
