The US administration is reportedly planning to replace the Bahraini ruler, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, over his failure to end months of protests in the country.

According to a report published by Islam Times, Washington has urged King Hamad to restore peace and stability to the country by end of 2011 even at the price of his resignation.

The report also says that Washington wants to replace King Hamad with a Sunni ruler upon agreement with Saudi Arabia.

It also said that the US has announced it will not tolerate Manama’s delay in crushing nationwide anti-government protests.

Al-Wefaq, the main opposition bloc in Bahrain, has also said that Washington is dissatisfied with the current situation in the country, which is home to the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet, and is pressuring the Manama government to go back to its previous situation.
