The simple answer is, of course, that Bahrain has oil while Syria does not. But that's an answer for simplistic minds. Consider: Assad's Syria is an ally of Iran, which is considered a danger to Middle Eastern and world stability by Western countries. Syria transfers weapons to Lebanon's Hezbollah and thereby also to Hamas (by sea). Syria has tried to develop nuclear weapons (but was bombed out by Israel). Syria and/or Hezbollah assassinated Lebvanese Primke Minister Hariri. Syria gives refuge to the leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Sunni Muslim Bahrein has a border with Shi'ite Muslim Irfan, and the overthrow of the present government would mean a Shi'ite takeover of Bahrein, thus strengthening the position of Iran, both politicially and strategically.
