See Moxie Marlinspike:
Got to love the way they tried to imply he was a trrerisst if he didn't comply. I suppose you get used to having your own way when your torture regime is so efficient. The stories I could tell. But I won't. I'm too afraid. I'm a coward really when it comes down to it. But at least I have faced my own conscience like a man, even if I did find myself lacking in the big balls department.
It would do no good anyway, this battle is already won. Things won't change in our lifetime.
But it is a measure of how truly free we are in our society when we are too afraid to post our true feelings on the matter. Feelings that don't include any desire to cause havoc or fight back - just innocent stuff - feelings you know - how you really feel about it all. Not a wise thing to do in this age.
I don't believe in violence. I know it solves nothing. Minds are where the heart of the matter is. And that is where the battle is really lost.
But yes, it is criminal and shameful what is happening on that tiny island.
I guess this comment will be pre-moderated as my one on the Beeb was.
Interesting. This leads me to the conclusion that someone is watching very closely and there is an agenda at play (even if it is not pissing off the powers that rule by violence). I guess this is not the forum for discussion of politics.

Edit: Oh it went through straight away. Guess Bahrain isn't as important as the Beeb.
