The orphaned uprisings

The Bahraini and Saudi uprising (as limited as the one in Saudi Arabia has been) are the orphaned uprisings in the Arab world.  They are the lest covered uprising.  They are totally ignored in the Arabic press and their Youtube footage are largely ignored by Arab and Western media (unlike Youtube footage by Syrian opposition, for example, which get circulated widely on Arab and Western media).   If Arab governments and Western governments are guilty of selective championing of Arab uprisings, Arab youths should be categorical in supporting the overthrow of all Arab regimes without exception, while insisting on exclusion of NATO or other outside intervention.
