i say again does anyone remember your that is US national guard shooting dead American students during a peaceful demo at their campus [dont ask for whom the bell tolls it tolls for thee ] quote ;;


This is an interesting point. Back in 1970 a proportion of the military was drafted. I am not sure of the proportion to volunteers exactly. But that meant a fair representation of ordinary Americans could be found in the military. These days they are volunteers of all ages. Either they enlisted because of lack of alternative opportunities or they did it because they wanted adventure or some other esoteric attraction.

Today the military is full of people who entered young, many with little life experience, or education. They have been brutalised in training and become honed and hardened killers in the battlefield. These are the soldiers that the American protestors of today and tomorrow will be facing.

Remember the military forces on the streets in New Orleans? Now imagine them facing off a street full of passionate and angry protestors.

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.



Not exactly true, your interventions were absolutely never for humanitarian reasons. I can actually see possibility of US intervention in Bahrain, but only if US government assess that King is finished. And you know why? So that they can put in power someone who will try to look little more people friendly but actually he will just be little better disguised american puppet. No way US will allow true people's government there.

No better way to recruit Al-Qaeda members than to kill peaceful Islamic men with Military arms supplied by the "infidel" westerners.

I'm getting this sneaking suspicion that we ain't seen nothin' yet.

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.

Nothing about Bahrain in the news here, huh? Libya seems to be the big story, I haven't heard Bahrain mentioned at all in the past few days. Wonder why.

Duck and cover - - - and building bomb shelters.

It really played on the mind.


I still remember duck and cover drills in the 70's in school, my kids think I'm crazy when I sing the little song that what with the video.

I just love how our country gets involved in other countries affairs, installing military bases everywhere around the globe fighting "terrorist," engaging in military occupation of third world countries. But when peaceful countries like Bahrain are in URGENT need of help being gunned down by their own governments, we just sit back and say "we condemn hostile actions against the protesters."

Just makes me want to

Hi, I'm from Bahrain. First of all, I'd like to thank the people in here, you seem to actually have compassion, other people from around the internet seem to be happy because we're arabs. & I'd like to clear something else, we don't hate America or American people, its a myth, I don't know why the media loves promoting this.

anyway, the media isn't showing the world the actual crimes that are committed by the royal family, the biggest crime is discrimination against Shiite Muslims, Shiite Muslims cannot work in the military, in the interview they actually ask you if you're Shiite or Sunni, discrimination also applies when promoting employees, forcing Sunni culture studies in schools, giving Shiites the lowly jobs while Sunnis get the high level jobs, Shiites represent 60% of the population & Sunnis represent 30%, Christians represent 9% of the population, & the rest are from other religions, & the government is giving free citizenship to anyone from the world that is Sunni with a guaranteed job, a house, a car, & a lot of other privileges to offset the population percentage, most of those people are given jobs in the military, & that is why they're showing no remorse when Massacring our friends & families.

of course there are other crimes, & that is why most Sunni Muslims are protesting alongside Shiite Muslims, those crimes include the whole country is owned by The Royal Family, anything the country produces goes straight to their pockets, & people are fed up. Other anti-freedom things done by the government include blocking political websites (& porn, but I digress).

so in other words, Shiites are second class citizens, & the whole Bahrain population is suffering because The Royal Family owns the country, there are other things, but they're are very detailed & wouldn't be understood by someone not living in Bahrain.

you might also wanna look at this, it details the property & housing problems in Bahrain:
www.ogleearth.com...

one other thing, this HAS NOTHING TO DO with Iran, the people protesting aren't extremists or fundementalists, they're regular people that have no freedom, the media again creates a connection between protesters & Iran, just because most protesters are Shiite, which is ridicilous, not every Muslim is a terrorist, the media loves turning us into their punching bags, not to mention the fact that there are actually Sunnis participating in the protests.

I couldn't post a new thread because I don't have 20 posts yet, so I'd really appreciate it if someone posts this in a new thread here & anywhere you can, including Facebook & other forums you visit regularily.

Quite a shock to see no American intervention here, or speeches. Oh wait, what money or resources is involved?

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.

well, it never works here, most of us don't hate you, but there are some that just think "they don't care, why should we care", I don't know if you people in America hate us, but from what I've seen on the internet, there are a lot of people there that hate us, though I don't blame them but I blame the media.
