Life for Speech?
Eight activists in Bahrain given life sentences for their parts in the popular uprisings that have been primarily crushed; sparking protests. As I have stated in an earlier blog, four dozen medical staff are also on trial. This has all been made possible because of American and Saudi interests and actions. Apparently free speech means nothing if it is politically advantageous to quell it. Bahrain, the home of the largest US military base in the Middle East, has become known as a human rights violator.
