BAHRAIN UPRISING COULD BE HAZARDOUS
FOR UNITED STATES NAVY PRESENCE IN
ARABIAN GULF REGION

The wave of Middle Eastern anti-government rioting that has now rippled into Bahrain could lead to serious problems for the United States Navy's strategic presence in the region. The US Navy's Fifth Fleet is stationed there, which provides a powerful military base of operations against the Taliban and other potential adversaries.

Bahrain's current uprising is largely a sectarian religious struggle between two Islamic sects -- the Sunni-controlled autocratic government of King Hamad, and the largely Shiite population with strong popular links to Iran. If the rebellion does lead to a radical shift in political control, it could include demands for the USN to quit its base there, a potential threat to America's ability to support military efforts by Coalition forces in the region.
