$Billions for ant-Gaddafi rebels--$Millions to kill Bahrain rebels

While the US spent $billions on military moves against Col. Muammar Gaddafi, in favour of violent rebels, the US wants to spend $53 million for arms to the Bahrain government so it can kill peaceful protesters. Once again we see how hypocritical the Barack Obama regime is to Democracy in the Middle-east.

From Amnesty International;

The U.S. State Department is coming under fire for considering a $53 million arms sale.

Why? Because since February of this year, the military, security and police forces of the prospective buyer -- Bahrain -- have used such weapons and military equipment to inflict deaths and injuries on protestors demanding greater political freedom.

Moving forward with this arms sale would provide more weapons and equipment to the very Bahraini security forces who have already shot protestors. It would also cross a clear line of U.S. responsibility to protect human rights.

That's why right now members of Congress, led by Senator Ron Wyden and Representative Jim McGovern, are drawing a sharp line with a resolution aimed at blocking this arms sale.

Urge your Senators and Representatives to join the call to stop the U.S. arms sale to Bahrain!
