Bahraini Government Tortures Protesters And Doctors — With U.S. Weapons

Share

Most Americans don’t spend much time thinking about Bahrain, the small island kingdom in the Persian Gulf. But despite ignorance stateside, Americans play a considerable role in tolerating and perpetuating the bloody government crackdown against Bahraini protesters.

The Bahraini government has in turn used those arms to violently suppress anti-regime protests, leading to countless injuries and deaths of people calling for greater freedom.
