Saudi Arabia has sent roughly 1,000 troops into neighboring Bahrain to buttress the shaky royal regime there in the face of relentless street protests, according to Al-Jazeera. And the United Arab Emirates has "dispatched a security force" to preserve order.

It's so heartening to see the Arab world band together for the protection of a royal oligarchy! Meanwhile, the Arab League has bravely called for somebody else to institute a no-fly zone over Libya to stop Quaddafi from bombing his own cities. Saudi Arabia, which has a large air force much of which was purchased from us, would totally do it but it's kind of busy with the whole Bahrain situation right now.
