Obama Secretly Pushes Arms Sale to Bahrain

Josh Rogin at Foreign Policy:

President Barack Obama‘s administration has been delaying its planned $53 million arms sale to Bahrain due to human rights concerns and congressional opposition, but this week administration officials told several congressional offices that they will move forward with a new and different package of arms sales — without any formal notification to the public.

  1. America economic is indanger have a lot of debt as we almost 100% of its GDP so they need lots of money to payback their debt. I think america cannot payback their debt if they doesn't go to war

  2. I really wonder, if the term brutal applies to the Bahrain regime. They are tryig to prevent a war that can overtake the country by the Iranian regime.One who believes that the protests in Bahrain are peaceful and demand democracy, must be living in another planet. We, who live in Bahrain are witnessing a violation never seen in the whole region. Police man are continuing to be targetted, inflicting heavy damage. Because the polic are very restraint and tolerants. but things will change and they will act to work according to the law. If implemented, many protesters will be behind bars, and the world will call it "brutal"
    Journalists are attacked , schools are bombed, todaate 26 schools, roads are blocked, warning mails are circulated for the expatraite community to leave, nothing is left of terrorist actions. Can one expect, the Governmnet to keep silent, amid this terrorist actions.
    Weather the USA sells arms or not is meaningless.Arms can be obtained from any where. BY the way Russia is trying to use the opportunity to sell arms to middle east countries. The US is worried that why they want to use the chance to sell the arms.

  3. My partner and i significantly loved the item vastly. enjoy it a great deal of suitable dealing with. My wife and i believe that a large amount of that which Android Instagram you are saying right here. Carry on. Proceed posting.
