Undercover Kingdom - Bahrain.

heres a video exposing whats really going on in bahrain.
WARNING: some Upsetting Scenes

With civil unrest in Bahrain worsening, protestors continue to suffer under a government determined to quell dissent by using brute force and manipulating the media's message.

The conflict in Bahrain has descended into a scene of civil unrest now familiar across the Arab world, with people gathering in public spaces, shaking their fists at authority and demanding change.

Yet the violence of the government response is rapidly escalating. "They're using every single means possible to kill us, target us and stop us from speaking", says one protestor.

Like in Tunisia and Egypt, the internet has been sizzling with videos, tweets and Facebook posts in an attempt to draw the world's attention to the deadly response Bahrain's authorities have been meting out to a rebellious population.

This cyber-barrage has been met with an out-and-out denial and countered with a stream of government propaganda. "I don't believe that unarmed protesters were shot by snipers.

I believe some of these videos have been fabricated...I have not seen any violence", claims Ahdeya Ahmed, a Bahraini TV presenter. With the protest movement broken and dispersed, the royal family is slowly obliterating its opponents whilst making it increasingly difficult for the outside media to shine a light on dissent.


the reason the west should care about bahrain is that it's located just off the coast of saudi arabia and across the gulf from iran,a volatile neighborhood full of oil. $$$$

most saudi oil exports are loaded onto tankers near bahrain.
If things go pear-shaped in bahrain, it could easily spill over to saudi,and that can't happen,as it would interrupt the flow of oil,so bahrain people will have to suffer in media silence,as you can bet your house,there be no NATO or UN help for them,and it really is a truly democratic and legitimate protest movement in Bahrain unlike libya,were it being staged so there country can be raped of resources.

But...our "friends", the Saudis, moved in to help them out.

You remember the Saudis, right? The same ones who cut back on the oil to the US.

US weapons and armor. When we arm these tyrannical regimes, their respective populations equate the US with their suffering. This will ensure that the defense industry will have a long source of income well into the future. It is a win - win for the military-industry-complex, as they also get to sell these tyrants the weapons in the first place.

Death sentences, but for Iran and China another story?

Bahrain sentences four to die over police killing
MANAMA | Thu Apr 28, 2011 8:12pm EDT

MANAMA (Reuters) - A Bahraini military court ordered the death penalty for four men Thursday over the killing of two policemen in recent protests, state media said, a move that could increase sectarian strife in a close U.S. ally.

the bahrain monarchy is pro-western and allows the U.S. fifth fleet to be located in bahrain, which is critical to the U.S. ability to protect the 20% of the world’s oil shipments that travel through the persian gulf.

being a shiite protests,you wonder is iran behide any of this,and saudi arabia doesn’t want an iranian proxy located right next door,which would explain saudi arabia directly intervening in bahrain with a 2000 strong force.

If saudi arabian oil production were to be interrupted based on political turmoil,it would send crude into the abyss with news like brace for $200 oil if unrest hits saudi arabia

curse of the black gold !
