Bahrain´s Army killing Unarmed Protesters

Dreadfulness. Sorrow. Shame. Sadness. That´s what I felt when I heard the news that the Bahrain´s army shoot at some people that were protesting. What was the protest about? Well, it turns out that the army closed off access to one of their praying places and the unarmed civilians were planning on getting there when they were shot. There were 3 killed and 38 wounded... this is another example of pointless killing, government intimidation and abuse, and denial of Human Rights. What is Bahrain anyway? Well it´s a kingdom in the Middle East, they´re ally to U.S. Since the attack on innocent people the Human Rights Watch and other organizations are asking U.S. to cease support but the thing is no action has been taken yet. WHEN WILL THIS MADNESS END.

  2. My thoughts are with the people of the Arab world in this time of struggle against dictators. Bahrain is getting less airtime now that Libya is such a big story, but we mustn't forget the struggle of the Bahraini people.
