You see there is the problem. Many are not fighting for Freedom. Those who wanted Freedom in Saudi Arabia hid out when the Shiites took to the
streets. The Shiites were protesting for a Sharia Theocracy which is less Freedom than they have now.
In Bahrain the Shia uprising is not about Freedom at all.
Dude where did you get this misconception? being from bahrain, i will only debate the situation here. do you even know the demands of the protesters
here? since when the abolition of corruption, political reforms, stoping discrimination, and demanding basic freedomes for all bahrainis equates to
"sharia theocracy" ?!
do you know that many secular groups, along with sunni and shiite groups, comprise the movement that is putting these demands forward? the government
is trying to downplay that by claiming that its a shiite unrest and turning the political uprise into a sectarian one. thats how they justified
targeting unarmed civilians with military and mercenary death squads in the name of restoring order. it was NOT a security issue all along it was a
political one. hence the solution should have been a political solution, not local and foreign armies going after peaceful protesters with live ammo
from infantry, tanks, and heliochopters. not to mention the rift that they created between the once united sunni/shiite sects by giving the sunnis an
illusion that they are under attack from the shiite through the propaganda machine manifested in Bahrain TV the state tv station.
you, my friend, are spreading lies..
Up with the people, down with the government. power belongs to people, not guns!
