//NEWS: Riot Control- Shiite Protesters in Saudi Arabia?



I know, it doesn't really look like much is happening. Just a bunch of dudes burning things but apparently this is the current face of a brewing movement in Saudi that very little seem to be paying attention to. Hell, I wouldn't have noticed myself if it weren't for the fact that Saudi barely shows up on my view-dar.

Some people are saying the movements are partly retaliations due to Saudi support of 'crushing' Shiite minority in Bahrain but I'm going to call doodoo and say that Bahrain's issue have barely anything to do with Shiitism, it's just a matter of a minority that wants more socialised spending.In Saudi though, I don't know- will have to keep my eyes peeled. And so should you.

What do you think is going on?
