Bahrain's U.S.-Backed Crackdown on 2-Year Uprising Employing "Unprecedented" Use of Tear Gas



To watch the entire report by Sharif Abdel Kouddous on Democracy Now!, visit http://owl.li/hVY4Y. Democracy Now! correspondent Sharif Abdel Kouddous details the "unprecedented" use of tear gas by U.S.-backed Bahraini forces in their crackdown on a two-year old uprising. Since February 2011, at least 87 people have died at the hands of U.S.-backed forces. "The security forces have been heavily criticized for the use of tear gas in Bahrain," Kouddous says. "People speak of it as an unavoidable hazard of everyday life. ... People speak about how it's shot into apartments, into cars. Pregnant women have had miscarriages because of this."

Just more spreading of freedom/democracy by financially & politically supporting dictators?
