Bahrain forces fire at protesters - Middle East - Al Jazeera English

Bahrain forces fire at protesters - Middle East - Al Jazeera English

Caution. The video is quite graphic in places.



Every time I see a report like this, I recall the G8/G20 and what the next one might look like in Harper's Canada.

"what the next one might look like in Harper's Canada" — probably just like the last one, with lots of video cameras to keep the government playing nice.

The vanguard may wish for a Ludlow, but, as a good Marxist would pontificate, the objective conditions do not exist. So, let us refrain from apocalyptic suggestions that the Canadian army or police might hose 'em down with automatic fire.

Now, that's not to say that Stevie is not capable of treasonous acts, but as Junius used to proclaim from the masthead of the G&M, the subject who is truly loyal to the chief magistrate will neither advise nor submit to arbitrary measures. Having an F.A.C. might be helpful, in that regard.

I know it's not politically-correct, but tough noogies: when you see what happened in Bahrain, to defenseless people, the American fixation with the right to bear arms doesn't look so silly.

Superb blog post, I have book marked this internet site so ideally I’ll see much more on this subject in the foreseeable future!
