Manama - (X-Files): Like Cairo's legendary Sphinx Captain Bruce H Lindsey, Commander of the Carl Vinson and US 5th Fleet Commander Vice Admiral Mark I Fox were staying tight-lipped tonight.
A few miles down the road in Manama civil turmoil was raging unabated as furious crowds demanded to know who gave the order to bury an ancient UFO warfleet hangar off Bahrain's southern tip.
One billion tonnes of high grade US marine-grade concrete was all it took to sink the ancient subterranean alien city and its perfectly preserved 10th century BC spaceport.
A land reclamation project then laid the foundations for the spectacular $6bn Durrat Al Bahrain island development which now straddles the crushed pre-Atlantean space hub.
For over a week now Manama protesters have vented their betrayal over the destruction of such an awesome ancient civilization's greatest technological assets.
Their disgust is not confined either to the creation of the artificial island matrix.
Detractors have poured scorn on the 'occult' design of six upturned 'lucky' horseshoe atolls, five fish-shaped and two crescent-shaped islands and a $1 billion 700,000 m2 three-island marina.
"This development is evil, it is hexed and will bring down the Bahraini King and his royal family with it," a disgusted anonymous local resident told reporters tonight.
A few hundred miles southwest off the coast of Dubai a similar land reclamation project called The Dubai World is already sinking, taking billions of dollars of high class real estate with it.
The omens for a lull in the Bahraini revolt are diminishing fast.
