Does the US need ME naval bases?

Saudi Arabia has defiantly announced its all-out support for the Bahraini monarchy. This support includes money, riot control gear, weapons, and the last-resort possibility of direct Saudi military intervention.

Oddly, the White House has embarked on the opposite course and criticizes the Bahraini monarch, among other autocrats. If the popular revolt in Bahrain succeeds, the country’s Shiites will come to power and bring Bahrain into Iran’s orbit. At a minimum, the United States will lose its major naval base there.
