    Yeah, maybe....but I do tend to give her a little more credence.

    Pant Suit Hillary is one of the slickest sleazyist politicians in the business but I actually felt sorry for her the way her "fans" turned on her when Jug Ears came on the scene, one of the biggest "back stabbings" I've ever seen in my lifetime.

    Simmering beneath the surface of these Arab and North African revolts is a 1300-year blood feud. Get ready for $10 gas.

    For those keeping score at home: Iran is Shi'ite while the Saudis are Sunni.

    You might be surprised to know that while the Bahraini Shias might not totally oppose Iranian assistance against the Khalifa family, they don't really identify with the Persians at all. They are pretty fiercely proud of their Bahar heritage. If they succeed in Bahrain, look out for Shia uprisings in nearby Saudi Arabia (where the Shia are also Bahar).

    It looks like the Shias in S.A. aren't waiting to see if the Bahraini's succeed.
