Saudi Tanks in Bahrain?

The Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Yawm reported Tuesday that eyewitnesses saw "15 tank carriers carrying two tanks each" crossing the King Fahd Causeway into Bahrain from Saudi. I haven't found the exact story, but if true this just goes to show my earlier point that the Saudis will sooner take over Bahrain themselves than lose it to the Bahraini Shi'a. Already there were reports that Saudi police/military personnel took part in the attack on the Pearl Roundabout that resulted in a number of people being killed. But 30 tanks is another thing altogether.

Of course, everyone is denying the heck out of this, so until we see the green "la illaha illa allah" flags on a few of the tanks next time they enter Manama, we'll just have to wonder.
