Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Beyond the abyss | Mahmood's Den

Shocking video. Shocking and barbaric situation.

For all the naysayers, I don't think that any sane person can even dream of condoning such action, under any pretenses:

In light of the effective political societies' refusal to take up the Crown Prince on his offer for dialogue until the resignation of the government and the withdrawal of the armed forces and the riot police, the country is now at a critical fork in the road, the choice of which to tread must be decided before 3pm this afternoon when the street - not political societies - has decided to once again take to the streets from several locations and converge once again on the Pearl Roundabout.

Can you imagine the massacre awaiting your fellow compatriots there if the army is not instructed to stand down and get back to their barracks? The protestors - regardless of whether you agree with them, are Bahrainis just like you and me. They have legitimate demands and aspirations, again just like you and me, will you stand by the wayside, once again, and allow them to be mowed down and get their blood to flow on the streets of this country? How can we live with ourselves if we allow that to happen? Even animals have more compassion.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
