  3. There is a new thriller on Amazon Kindle, The Bahrain Protocol, which is apropo for this article. It predicts a war in the immediate future-between Israel and Iran; but with a twist that is no longer far fetched. What if Israel-no longer trusting U.S. intentions-finds common cause with an old nemesis-Saudi Arabia – and they partner to attack Iran's nuclear facilities?

    The book puts you on the streets of Bahrain, within the ranks of rioters who burn down schools, destroy buildings, and fire bomb policemen on the orders of Iran's Hezbollah to distract the U.S. until Iran gets the nuclear bomb; and in the cockpit of an Israeli F15, barreling down the throat of the enemy with ground penetrating bombs; and it's only the beginning. And it's a great read.
