From Victor Provenzano:
A dose of reality for those who have been living with their head in the sand concerning U.S. policy
in North Africa and the Mideast.
The U.S. Fifth Fleet is now sitting in the harbor of Manama as the king of Bahrain fires on his citizens—-both Shia and Sunni—-with U.S. arms, live American ammunition, U.S. rubber bullets, and American tear gas…the same rounds and the same gas cannisters that have kept the repressive Bahraini monarchy in place for decades.
From the BBC:
“Here a protester outside a hospital in Manama [Bahrain] holds up a casing for U.S.-made rubber bullets fired by security forces”
Bahrain is an important Gulf ally of the US. Here a protester outside a hospital in Manama holds up a casing for US-made rubber bullets fired by security forces.
