Tyranny in Bahrain

Yesterday, Bahrain's monarch invited a foreign army into his country to suppress pro-democracy protests. Today, he declared martial law and sent them into action. The cost? Two dead and 200 injured:

At least two people have been killed and as many as 200 injured in clashes between anti-government demonstrators and security forces in Bahrain.

A doctor told the BBC he was treating many people with head and gunshot wounds, and that soldiers and police were using ambulances to attack people.

As in Libya, we are seeing a government murdering its own people to stay in power. Such governments deserve to fall.
