The USA and the West still continue to support the dictatorial authoritarian monarchies in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Everything that happens in the area is seen as a prelude and excuse for the USA, NATO and Western nations to bomb and /or invade Iran as if Iran were the source of tension and unrest in the Middle East. Mainstream Western media ignores massive peaceful protests in Saudi Arabia and the Saudi governments violent and brutal draconian crack down .

 It is not much different than what has happened in Bahrain or Egypt over the last year and a half throughout the Middle East and during the Arab Spring. The West and the USA disingenuously claim they are in favour of promoting freedom, democracy and human rights while arming these governments to crush all dissidents in these countries.

Saudi Arabia is sending additional troops to its Eastern region of Qatif - with the government fearing riots. Public anger is rising in the area - with reports of more marches planned in support of two local activists, killed at a rally on Sunday. The demonstration was in response to the violent arrest of a prominent Shia cleric.

 The deaths brought tens of thousands onto the streets of the city of Qatif - for marches that have continued throughout the week. Discontent is fueled by a lack of political and civil freedoms and ongoing detentions of dissidents. The clampdown has been ignored by the west which unconditionally supports the regime.
