Judith, I really appreciate you doing this story. The violence is escalating by the minute, and we can clearly see it's US and UN sanctioned, who are in total control over here already and all they would need to do is give one simple command, but as we have seen instead, Obama tells them to "practice maximum restraint on the PEACEFUL protesters." Arabs don't want US interference, that is absolutely true, they were perfectly able to handle all of their affairs on their own, and they were successful as we saw in Tunisia as well as in Egypt. This US sanctioned, and probably even organized military invasion is illegal and totally unjustifyable, even within GCC law itself. People are being pursuit in their own houses, interrogated, tortured , killed; unconventional, US weapons are being used, doctors have been murdered, and now doctors and nurses are being held hostage inside the hospitals and denied to help the injured victims. People are are trapped inside their homes, cannot go out to even get their necesseties, for fear of being hurt or murdered.
Money and Oil are what stand in the way of justice. And the tyrants, US gov. included, are about to show their true colors to the world. Talk of democracy, human rights, freedom of speech.....where is any of your support for these values you say you cherish Obama????!!!!

Thanks Sandra and Judith. Saudi and US are disgusting. Why didn't saudi go to help
The Libyan protestors against the Murderer Gaddafi??? How conveniently Bahrain, with the
Help of US are announcing FALSELY, to the world that, its sectarian violence that's the problem;
Whereas the protestors have made it clear the protest was peaceful and Was for removal of leadership
And was NOT between themselves. Its just an excuse US is using, to justify the saudi military's
Presence in Bahrain. US does NOT want democracy in any of the arab countries. In egypt
The military used brutal force against protestors recently; the military are still affliated
To US. US is in control all over. Protestors must remove all governments that have anything to do
With america; only then will there be Real and True Democracy all over the Arab Countries.

Thanks Sandra and Judith. Bahrian, Lybia and others who have turned against their people should be ashamed. But we all know they are not. I think the US should support the people of each country looking for freedoms and opportunities. I do not think we should intervene. We are danmed if we do and damned if we don't in sistuations like these. This time it is up to the Arabs to rise or fall to the opportunity their people have given them.

These countries have been given a chance to change for the better. Not many will want to give up the power in order to do so. Unfortunately this is very sad for the people. We, Americans just can not try and dictate democracy and we can not be the world's policemen. The Arabs have been given the opportunity and they have the means to become part of the 21st Century. But I fear the old attitudes only change among some of the people and none of those in power.

The PEACEFUL protests were faced by extreme force from not only Bahrain governers but also by Saudi ,UAE and othr GCC forces that arrived in bahrain starting last friday to put an end to the protests in Bahrain.GCC govrnments are scared of their own people and will do their best to kill any attempt from their people to revolt as Tunisians,Egyptlans and libyians have done during the last three months.The ruling families in those countries are getting all the benifits and profits of oil and getting wealthy while in many parts,specially in Saudi Arabia ,are living in poverty and youth suffer from unemployment.
This crime must be stopped immediately.Shame on all thoses Arab Kings,Emires and presidents who don't listen to their people.

Its a shame that freedom of speech is not allowed in Bahrain.
Its unhealthy for Bahrain government to only accept praises for the government.

In order to attain prosperity any nation, as with any other organisation, needs firm, intelligent, expert direction at its head. There are two routes to the desired objective, but such overall control is an essential for either alternative.
The first and most desirable course to economic success is for an expert direction to guide a well-educated, intelligent work-force. However there are few countries in the world that meet this requirement, maybe a dozen in Central Europe, the Principality if Monaco and perhaps Japan. Elsewhere an autocratic government exercising strict control on a rabble of relatively ignorant workers, ompelled by fear or experience of poverty, will achieve national prosperity, such as in a number of Middle Eastern nations, China and India, some South American lands amongst others.
Any seeking proof of these assertions have only to consider the dire straits of the U.K. economy resulting from decades of deliberate erosion of an experienced ruling elite and the dumbing-down of the populace through the infliction of an ineffectual education system. Further evidence is provided by the U.S.A., where perennial moromic inexpert direction of a largely mindless populace leads to regular “recessions” and “downturns” that spread to plague the whole world. Your unemployed masses too form a vital part of the system.
The recent upheavals, cynically fomented by callous “activists”, of brainless rabbles against rulers who have brought prosperity to their lands, will lead to misery of millions as their economies are thereby destroyed. Aiready Egypt is in serious difficulty. These protesters are trying to kill the goose that laid the golden egg - and the goose is understamdably refusing to be killed.
