1. No 2. No more than any other middle eastern country 3. It is no nearer finishing than it is started. Some questions for you. Have you, in your Google searches found any answers to the sweeping problems that the government have, trying to keep their populace in order? Did you know that the ( British trained) police there slaughtered protesters on the streets in the last six months? Are the medical staff who tended to wounded protesters really going to have to serve 15 years in prison? Are you really being serious that the questions you ask are all that you need to consider? Last month poor old Ghaddafi was dragged out of a storm drain and executed live on TV and the President of the US and the idiot Cameron purred, yet two years ago he was their best mate in the fight against terror. The US Fifth fleet dock in Bahrain and the British government make squillions out of training their paramilitary police force. When they decide that Malta, Cyprus or even the Yemen are a better place to be then all hell is going to break loose in Manama and no one,not even the sainted Ed Goodbody is going to be able to stop it. Remember that squirrel? Stop look left, look right etc? That's what you should be doing when you look at Bahrain. It's been an explosion waiting to happen for a long time, the fuse has now been lit. All that remains is to see how long it will burn for.
