    Wow, a Bahraini royal is coming to Washington? I wonder if he’ll take questions after or before their talks. I bet not.

    I’ll admit I’m uneasy with how the U.S. has handled the crackdown in Bahrain- arresting doctors and nurses who take care of wounded protesters really isn’t something that is consistent with what we stand for. The whole world is watching our double standard play out and the only reason we seem to be tolerating Bahrain’s horrendous human rights abuses is because of the Fifth Fleet and because we can conveniently blame Iran because of the Sunni/Shia tensions. I guess Shia don’t have the right to protest for democracy and economic rights?

    Hopefully Merkel will stress Mideast peace- she is apparently really pissed off at Bibi and she told him so- I give her credit for that. Too bad our govt can’t speak truth to power.
