3 Sunni Kings recall their ambassadors to Syria

"Bahrain and Kuwait recalled their ambassadors to Syria on Monday as Syrian security forces continue a deadly crackdown on anti-government protesters in the eastern city of Deir al-Zour.

The recall followed Saudi Arabia’s withdrawal of its ambassador in Damascus on Sunday, when security forces backed by government tanks attacked Deir al-Zour killing 50 people.

Kuwait’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammad al-Sabah said the bloodshed in Syria is unacceptable while Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmad al-Khalifa said Damascus must “resort to reason.”

It sucks when the Gulfie douchebags look like the good guys.

It is a sign of how much the current turmoil is affecting the Assad's regime chances of survival that such conservative status quo powers such as Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait are showing their public opposition to Assad's brutal repression. The Gulf states are seriously thinking that Assad is going to be overthrown and they want to have influence in whatever regime suceeds him.
