Thanks for your interesting take on things, specifically the possibility of the Saudis intervening militarily in support of Al Khalifa. (though I intensely disliked having to listen to the National Review Online lady re: Wisconsin prior to your segment)

If that were to occur, what are your thoughts on any blowback for the Saudis? While the immediate result would be the end of the Bahrain demonstrations, wouldn't such a move precipitate significant negatives for the Saudis in the region? Stoking rage among its own Shia population perhaps? An opening for Iran?

And what would be the US response regarding its Saudi ally?

"And what would be the US response regarding its Saudi ally?"

I would expect some pro forma wailing and gnashing of teeth and a quiet sigh of relief.
