Interview Focusing on Destabilizing Events in Bahrain

I was asked to answer several written questions regarding recent events taking place in the Persian Gulf State of Bahrain, the small island nation sandwiched between Saudi Arabia to the west connected by a 16-mile bridge and Qatar to the east. Two days after President Trump made the biggest arms deal in history with the House of Saud, Bahrain's King Hamad, a Sunni, cracked down on the Shiite majority killing five protesters and arresting hundreds. Emboldened by big brother the Saudi Kingdom, the king is aggressively oppressing all Bahraini dissidence in what amounts to another proxy war with Bahrain's despotic government aligned with the US-Israel-Saudi axis-of-evil opposing the Bahrain majority of Shiites aligned with Iran. What we're looking at here is another potential Yemen 2, and with Trump's arms deal, perhaps another lit fuse to World War III in the West versus East showdown that the deep state neocons in Washington have been gunning for all 21st century long. Add one more hotspot to the dozen already percolating. Read more in my interview below...
