Bahrain Flag[edit]

The articles in Wikipedia that discuss Bahrain or Bahrainis use the wrong flag. The flag of Bahrain has 5 white triangles, while the articles in Wikipedia use one with 6 or 7 white triangles, which is completely wrong and is unacceptable. Is it possible for someone change the flag used in the articles? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.148.17.55 (talk) 22:54, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Section-blanking[edit]

I've undone this edit. Trimming may be approriate for this section. But the meat-cleaver approach to copy-editing here appears overbroad. Thoughts? David in DC (talk) 00:58, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Agreed. As per my last article edit comment, serious trimming would not be amiss. I will spend some time on this then post a proposed new section either here or on a sandbox page. Best, ► Philg88 ◄ Star.pngtalk 04:14, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. This topic is way outside my knowledge base. I just came here by way of pending changes review. David in DC (talk) 21:17, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Persian Gulf map[edit]

I found it difficult to figure out just where Bahrain is in relation to the rest of the modern Middle East. Could this map be added at the top of the Bahrain entry?

Foreign relations image[edit]

I've restored the image. It is very relevant to the section it is in. If there is a better image, perhaps with a country that has closer ties with Bahrain such as Saudi Arabia or Gulf Cooperation Council, then I wouldn't mind placing it there. But just removing the image is wrong and as far as I can see is against consensus. Mohamed CJ (talk) 13:22, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

George Bush[edit]

Why is there a George Bush II image on a page about Bahrain?
People visiting here to see images of Bahrain are confronted by the features of a previous president of a remote country.
His image also resides on pages for Dominican Republic, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Latvia, Mali, Nigeria and Romania.
George Bush Jnr admirers, please place his image on his page only. B. Fairbairn (talk) 13:27, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

I doubt Bush has many admires here if any. As you can see in the section above, another image can do, but simply removing a good one is not helpful and counter productive IMO. Bahrain is classified as a major non-NATO ally and the U.S. fifth fleet is stationed here. Therefore, the image is relevant and I oppose removing it without proving a suitable replacement.
