Violence is happening in Bahrain. You can witness the shooting of a civilian protester in Sitrah by security forces earlier this week if you click on the video above. But you may not want to. Probably best to click “watch later” and forget about it; it’s pretty graphic. Not sure if the victim was hit by rubber bullets or something else, or his fate. The cracking-down is being done by the government there, a key ally of the U.S. and home of the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet. The Sunni monarchy has killed several civilians, most likely members of the majority Shia sect. Wonder how many will have to be killed before the international community imposes a no-fly zone or other form of military muscle to stop the bloodshed of innocents.
