Double standards. The F1 president says he talked to the ambasadors from UK, France, Germany, and Italy and all said it is safe for the race to go on!! Bahrain uprising is the the 2nd most bloody of all the Arab uprisings after Syria. 50 and with most accounts 81 people have died out of population of 500,000. Saudi Arabia has the US and EU with their balls and no one saying any meaningful things in support of Bahraini human rights. The world is seeing the hypocracy thru and thru. And don't effing blame Iran for the uprising. Shame on the US and all EU countries.

Libya losing 50,000 and adding everyday is pretty bad as well. Many on the left here in the USA hold this up as an Obama and Hillary trophy.

Not that Bahrain has legitimate rulers but it wouldn't surprise me if Iran is behind this, stirring up trouble wherever it can.
11:52 PM on 04/21/2012
Why is it that every time a Shiite agitates for freedom, democracy, human dignity or civil rights, the Iranians have to be behind it?

Or put another way, when Shiites agitate against medieval, autocratic, despotic dictatorships, why shouldn't Iran's Shiites assist them?

Why is that the type of "trouble" that we applaud in our own revolutionary origins, yet lament when we find it present in others?

Not sure what you mean by legitimate as the government has been there quite a while. Iran would love to have the country so on that you are on the money. It is most likely behind the "uprising"

Waving Bahraini and Saudi flags, a crowd estimated at 3,000 gathered at the central Sunni mosque in Manama.

The rally heard fiery speeches in defence of King Hamad and his government.

Many of those present told the BBC that Iran was behind the ongoing disturbances in the Gulf island kingdom.

Iran isn't the one that has an aircraft carrier battle group docked in Bahrain's main harbor, protecting a despotic, authoritarian, medieval dictatorship.

The "ongoing disturbances" in Bahrain are exactly the same thing that we are currently applauding in Syria, and which we previously supported with violence in Libya.

Why is preserving the status quo in Bahrain a good thing?

Supports U.S. national interests evidently. Morality doesn't enter into the equation. What's scary about this is the longer this goes on and if the situation gets more desperate for the regime they will reach out to Sunni extremist elements to remain in power.

You're against medieval dictatorship in Bahrain, but adamantly support medieval dictatorship in Iran..

This is illogical and immoral.

If you are the host of a US naval base you can do anything and the Administration will say absolutely nothing.

Violence in Bahrain is remarkably light compared to the rest of the uprisings in that part of the world. For the area and politics great restraint has been shown. Maybe not enough but more than any other Arab country has shown.

How so? One of the most bloody of the Arab uprisings. By most accounts 81 people have been killed out of a population of 500K. Do you call that restraint? The thugish regime supported by the brutal dictators in Saudi Arabia with the nod from US and EU have been very violent.
09:31 PM on 04/21/2012
Just stay out of this. It's an Arab vs Persian thing.
12:02 AM on 04/22/2012
The Shiites of Bahrain are Arab, not Persian.

You can try to smear the Iranians for trying to support the Shiites of Bahrain, but what they are doing for their religious cousins is nothing more than what we are doing in propping up the Sunnis of Bahrain.

We are already up to our necks "in it". If we got "out of it" the ruling family of Bahrain would most likely fall, and our Fifth Fleet would have to find another pond to play in.

It is Bahraini dictatorship against its own people. It has nothing to do with Persians/Iran. A minority dictatorship supressing majority (70%) for decades. Their uprising is one of the most legitimate uprsinings. Don't smear them.

We need to get our Israeli Lobby/Neocon-generated foreign policy out of Bahrain, Egypt, Iran and Syria as well.

The US is trying to co-opt the Arab Spring and reinstall a dictator in Egypt, prop up and allow the dictator to stay in Bahrain, and turn the Syrian Spring into a civil war.

The Bahrainis and Syrians need to take care of their problems and change their governments without the 'benefit' of US attempts to manipulate these events

Just a quick clue - whatever the Neocons and Israeli Lobby want in the Middle East is the exact opposite of what needs to happen. Joe Lieberman is the perfect spokesman for the Neocons and he wants war against Iran, war in Syria, prevention of the overthrow of the dictator in Bahrain and reinstallation of a dictator in Egypt

Should Obama be excused for his silence and inaction on this just because he probably couldn't spot Bahrain on the map?

Let me be honest. I so feel like locking the Sheikhs of the Middle East, in a small humid room of 45⁰C for atleast 24 hours.

As I recall from the Bahraini incarnation of the Arab Spring, BOTH Sunni & SHI'ITES were involved in the Pearl Square protests. That was right before Saudi & Pakistani mercenaries hired by the Bahraini government crushed it. They even went so far as to tear down Pearl Square in it's entirety. To Call this a Shi'ite Revolt is inaccurate and misleading. Virtually ALL Bahrainis hate Sheikh Khalifa.

It suits the "divide and conquer" brigade to portray it as a sectarian conflict, rather than a revolution.

I don't see their self interest. particularly on the part of the US, as complicated. They can't afford expansion of Iranian infulence in the Gulf. If the protesters wanted to win US support, they would have to convince them that they are not geting support from Iran - which they can't - because they are. So the march of democracy will wait - unless the protesters will accept baby-steps - just a personal opinion.

This is skirting the issue and trying to smear the legitimate uprsing in Bahrain. It has nothing to do with Iran. 80% of population rising up against a corrupt regime.

The issue I was responding to is why there is not wider speard support for for the legitimate uprising - my answer - Iran - that is not skirting - that is very direct.

These people have not had a Golden Age since the late 1200's I believe.
Sunni Vs. Shiite....................How long that one been going on for ?
Even longer than that.And with no end in sight.
Holding a Race there might be a very bad idea I think and if I had the ability to see this I would do so on a TV not in person.

They made scientific discoveries, ETC. in more Ancient Times.
The Islamic Golden Age (Arabic: العصر الذهبي للإسلام‎, al-'aṣr an-nahbī al-Islām) is a historical period lasting from c. 750 CE to c. 1257 CE, during which philosophers, scientists and engineers of the Islamic world are credited with a period of contribution to scientific knowledge, cultural arts, civilisation and architecture, both by developing earlier traditions and by a period of relatively rapid and marked innovation. A substantial degree of historic Islamic intellectual innovation occurred in the so-called Golden age.
