Bahrain is also home to major military base of the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet. while it should be noted that US and the West who propagates Human Rights and Civil Liberties around the world ,But in Bahrain the rulers have tarnished and abused Human Rights and Civil Liberties at all forums , yet there is no reaction from the US and the West , and at the same time on the other hand in the recent Revolution in Libya they have even used there forces and Air Power to De throne Muammar Gaddafi , and are supporting the Rebels who are being headed by Al Qaida Leaders , as there is total Al Qaida influence in the Libyan Rebels , who are the worst US & West enemies as shown and Projected in the World Media, But still they are being used to change the Leadership of the Libyan Regime, and on the other hand in Bahrain , where they have there Presence already , But have kept Silence on the Brutalities of the Al Khalifa regime backed by Ale Saud ,as they are their cronies, working for their Interest in the Middle Eastern and the Asian Region ,so even the International Media is not reporting the Unbiased true Picture of the Bahrain’s Population.
Nabeel Rajab of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights in an interview have condemned the deployment of Saudi force in Bahrain , and the Policy on which these forces are being run , as they are propagating sectarianism as per their regular practice in their country , where they openly practice sectarianism , due to which the Minority Shia Population , is being deprived of all their rights .
He added in the Interview that “ This is the part of the Saudi Wahhabism culture which does not existed in Bahrain, but it has been used rapidly in the past days. And we think that is because of the Saudi influence and the Wahhabi influence in our regime and in Bahraini army, and also by the participation here. Yes it look like they are planning to stay for a long time, bringing more troops to Bahrain in a situation where they don’t need to have troops and any armed men, because all the protestors since the month, they protested very peacefully, holding flowers, giving flowers to the police and army.” it’s an interference in our internal affairs and issues, which we don’t accept. We think it is an internal problem that has to be sorted out internally. Since the Saudis have come the problem has become more complicated, the crisis has become bigger, and the gap between the ruling elite and the people of Bahrain has become wider and wider. So now, month or a month and a half later than their invasion, the situation could be seen very clearly, it has deepened; the problem is becoming bigger and we don’t see, in the nearest future, any solution if they continue the same process.
While what is happening in Bahrain is completely worse. Its worse than Libya, because in Libya the dictator is killing his own people with his own army, but our dictators are not killing their people with their own army only, but they invited other armies from other oppressive regimes to share with them their bloody crackdown to kill their own people.
