Bahrain is no Egypt.It should be far more stable.

As the CIA World Factbook, Bahrain has one of the most diversified in the Mideast, and GDP Per Capita of over $40K. It’s a centre of finance in the region.

Egypt meanwhile has GDP per capita of $6.2K.

Meanwhile, horrific images are coming out of the Bahrain protests >
