The USA should at once get out of Bahrein, which along with Saudi Arabia & Syria should be subject to UN sanctions.
Either you believe in and act upon right and wrong or you don’t. You can’t convincingly pick and choose whom to support just because of geo-political considerations. So WHAT if Iran is looming in the background? TWO WRONGS DON’T MAKE A RIGHT. The Bahrein govt has shown itself to be illegitimate; hunting down doctors because they have evidence of state atrocities is beyond the pale. NO FREE STATE can POSSIBLY be ANY KIND of ally to a state doing this kind of thing.
It would be nice to hear the F1 circus stating that no more Grand Prix would be held in Bahrein under the present government.
