Did the US pay any attention to the protesters against the Bahrain/لبحرين protests? No. Our government and our mainstream press have gone to great lengths to make sure no one notices we support the oppression of a king, while the US supports protesters in Iran and Syria. Bahrain has a US military base in it and this country will turn its head every time that those there defend their rights. This has been dun just as they (US politicians and the press) have minimized and played down the Occupy movement as just a few kids having fun.
