‘US to lose Fifth Fleet in a few weeks’

“The US will lose its Fifth Fleet in Bahrain in a matter of weeks because they have sided with the al-Khalifa Monarchy,” al-Ahmed said in an interview with Press TV on Monday.

“This issue is already done; the al-Khalifa [dynasty] is over. We are just waiting for a few days or a few weeks,” he added.

Ahmed pointed to the presence of the forces of Saudi Arabia and those of several [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council ([P]GCC) members in Bahrain, saying, “The United States gave the green light to these troops to go into Bahrain because the White House is carrying on the Saudi policy in Yemen and Bahrain.”

He warned that if top Bahraini cleric Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qasim issues a Fatwa waging Jihad against foreign troops in Bahrain, “Bahrain will be burnt and the Saudis and the others will lose.”

Ahmed argued that under the international laws, the presence of [P]GCC troops in Bahrain is an act of “aggression” and “occupation” and the leaders of the invading countries are subject to prosecution by international courts.

Accordingly “the Bahraini people have the right to fight against them, to resist them and use violence against them,” he pointed out.

I wear many hats but history, economics and political observance have always been a passion. I am a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Business with a degree in Information Systems and Digital Business with a minor in European History. I work for a small mom-and-pop IT consulting and software design company. We deal in servicing mostly government funded non-profit mental and behavioral health care agencies in the state of Ohio. In this I deal with Medicaid and Medicare funds and have a little insight on the boondoggles of government there. Thankfully the undemanding nature of my daily profession gives me ample time to read and stay aware of our current state of affairs which I find stranger than fiction in many instances. In addition to being in the IT field, I have also been self employed with a small contracting company so I might know a thing or two about the plight of small business that employs 71% of the American workforce. I however don't draw my knowledge from my day jobs, which I have had a few; I draw it from an intense obsession with facts and observation about the world in which I live. I do have formal education in things such as history, economics and finance particularly as it pertains to global issues, but I have come to find much of what I thought I knew from the formalities of a state university I had to unlearn through much time and independent research. I hope you enjoy what I bring you which is not often heard in the mainstream news outlets. I would like to think my own personal editorializing is not only edifying but thought provoking while not at all obnoxious. That last one may be a hard to achieve.
