Bahrain Military Court Finds Medics Guilty
The video paints a different picture than testimonies received by Amnesty International
Why the silence from the West? Why is Bahrain U.S. and British backed? Why do they regard Bahrain as a key ally? Could it be more than the moderate reserve of oil and more so the strategic position of Bahrain, the HQ of the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet and the home of fifty American companies.
The unelected Sunni Regime has been in power since 1971 when granted independence from Britain. Approx. 80% of the unelected ministerial cabinet and senior military officers are members of the royal family.
Why do Britain and the U.S. not back the Bahraini peoples quest for freedom as they do in other middle eastern states?
