I am so sick right now and sad. I do not even know what to say. I am calling my Senators and Congressman first thing in the morning. How dare they speak out about Egypt and not say one damn word publicly about Bahrain!
This is the government declaring war on its people. Iran, USA, EU, UN, someone needs to intervene now!
Well, no they don't.
We need to not interfere with other countries. This is the hard lesson that has to be learned by the USA.
This is the same thinking that has gotten us into war after war and given our Govt. the unlimited power to do what ever the hell it wants in the world.
We need to pull back, not go out again. UN needs to be taken down as well as the EU. This is very tragic, but so are the other million or so that die everyday.

As a former soldier I can tell you that the American military WILL indeed fire upon us.
What they will do is demonize the protest/gathering or whatever, site that the group is threatening America and thus they are enemies.
Soldiers are taught to not ask questions, just obey orders. It's the sole purpose of bootcamp to deprogram and then reprogram civilians.
Separatism and labels are the doors to justifying murdering of your fellow human beings. All of you who like to throw the word "liberal" around are an example. I wouldn't be surprised if that would be the code word for any uprising here.
Giving peoples a label as such makes it a lot easier to treat them as something less than human.

I don't know about you - - but in the 50s - - our government put the fear of communism on us. I think the Cold War was probably more frightening to me - - then the real war.
Duck and cover - - - and building bomb shelters.
It really played on the mind.

Our governments (east and west) keep us from paying attention to all the corrupt things they do, by trying to make us hate each other, and our governments use the media to try and incite that hatred. But with the internet, we are able to communicate directly with each other, and come to the realization that we're all being used and shaken up like bugs in a jar, while the ultra rich elitists on both sides of the globe continue to horde all the world's wealth, that belongs to all people. Once they lose the ability to make us hate each other, they will lose the ability to blame others for their greed. Keep your heads up there in Bahrain, our government may support whomever lines their pockets, but the American people support your fight for freedom. Hopefully one day soon we will say enough is enough here as well, and put a stop to the ultra rich buying our government, and treating us like cattle.
