(Reuters) - Iran urged Bahrain on Monday not to allow foreign interference in the country, a news agency reported, hours after Saudi troops entered the island kingdom to help put down weeks of protests.

About 1,000 Saudi soldiers entered Bahrain to protect government facilities, a Saudi official source said, a day after mainly Shi'ite protesters overran police and blocked roads in one of the most violent confrontations since Bahraini troops killed seven protesters last month.

The Director General for Persian Gulf and Middle East Affairs at Iran's Foreign Ministry, Hossein Amir Abdollahian, said foreign interference in Bahrain would only complicate the situation and called on Manama not to allow it.

"The peaceful demonstrations in Bahrain are among the domestic issues of this country, and creating an atmosphere of fear and using other countries' military forces to oppress these demands is not the solution," he told the semi-official Fars news agency.

Instead, they send their forces to a show of force to the opposition in Bahrain who have been peacefully demonstrating about their struggle for more freedom.

These Saudi's really don't know what they're dealing with. When Gates and Sepah make sense, per this issue,it is truly a strange day. That entire peninsula is on fire, Saudis are just pouring more oil on it. Thou shall harvest what thou sow.

Do you remember this?

"Later the transcript has Glaspie saying: "We have no opinion on your Arab-Arab conflicts, such as your dispute with Kuwait. Secretary Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction, first given to Iraq in the 1960s, that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America."

One would have hoped such message could have comes from the "sane world" instead of the criminal regime in Iran. Hasn't Saudi Arabia exported enough of their barbaric tradition and policy to Pakistan, Afghanistan and else where?

Where is Obama and the greater West on this issue? Why are they taking a back seat to AN and how are they hoping to have a leading role in promoting democracy around the world?
