If you don't care about human rights abuses and our own active role in the oppression of democracy movements worldwide, then you don't care. That's on you, and you're just wasting your time in this thread. Have at.

Because it has to be our business. When we decided to get in bed with an autocratic ruler that murders his own people, this was the decision we'd inevitably have to face. We faced it with the Taliban, Hussein, Ghadaffi, Mubarak... Now we're facing it with Bahrain.

We've entrenched ourselves financially in Bahrain, there is no "let's do nothing" option.

We're either actively supporting a dictator murdering his own democratic protesters, or we're not. And we have recently decided that we are.
