Bahrain – a tyranny which tortures its citizens

Western hypocrisy is so obvious in defending tyrannies such as Bahrain, while going to war with Libya. Bahrain still holds political prisoners, no one has been prosecuted for torture, freedom of expression is denied (journalists are banned from covering demonstrations); health professionals are serving long jail sentences for treating victims of police and military violence.

Today (14.2.12) it is reported that the Bahrain military are tear-gassing villages near Pearl Roundabout, site of planned demonstration, in order to intimidate anyone who might be thinking of attending. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/feb/13/bahrain-police-teargas-protesters

Bloggers are imprisoned, the Bahrain centre for Human rights website is blocked in Bahrain.

Of course, the US uses Bahrain as a naval base so that makes it untouchable.
