    Great pics at site, links too. I don't get an administration like this, that gets so much right, yet so much wrong. Sometimes I feel like we're back to 1971. :coffee3:

    I agree.

    I thought the country was pretty stable and prosperous.

    Heck. I don't even remember hearing anything in the news about the country until a couple of days ago.

    Update, 5:53 a.m.:
    Death toll: Three people were killed and 231 wounded in a police operation to clear protesters from a Manama square Thursday, Bahrain's health minister said. Faisal bin Yaqoob al-Hamer told Reuters that 36 people were still being treated, including one in intensive care.

    A barrage of tear gas canisters thundered across the square about 3 a.m. as dozens of police cars, armored security vehicles and ambulances converged on a makeshift tent city in the center of Manama that was beginning to resemble a smaller version of Tahrir Square in Cairo, where Egyptian protesters this month were successful in overthrowing their president.

    After a peaceful, festive evening, most of the protesters in Pearl Square were asleep when the attack began, witnesses said, noting that no steps had been taken to guard the area against the security forces, even though two people had been killed in clashes with them earlier in the week.

    "They told us we had three days in the square," said one man as he ran from the scene. "And then they attack us on the second day."

    We are in a news blackout in the USA. We get just about Zero news, sure they touch a big story when its completely out of hand, but as far as real news, we have none.

    Bareed, is your user name an indication as to the problems in your country. Civil Rights of particular groups, I see a book from Lebanon has this word in the title so I am thinking maybe there is a connection, I was going to post a quote but thought it best to know if there is a connection first.

    within last few years tow Pakistani was killed and within 4 days 6 Bahraini killed. The government does't catch the killer. The king promise people to provide them with houses, better salaries and provide unemployeds with proper jobs but nothing from his promises happened.

    People in Bahrain signed on constitution on 2001 and after 1 year he change it.

    My understanding is that you don't necessarily want to overthrow your king but that you want a greater say in your government and you want your government to help the Bahraini people more. Is that right?

    We don't have a 'news blackout', it's just not being reported because the US media doesn't see Bahrain as a strategically important ally, like Egypt is. But what we can do, is bombard the US Media and ask them why they are not covering the protests in Bahrain. Seems to me, it would help put pressure on their government if our media would run the story.

    Guys, email the media - left or right - just throw out some emails and ask them to cover it.
