    Bloody crackdown smashes Bahrain protesters

    Bloody crackdown smashes Bahrain protesters - World news - Mideast/N. Africa - msnbc.com


    MANAMA, Bahrain At least four people were killed Thursday after riot police used buckshot, tear gas and clubs to drive protesters from a main square in Bahrain's capital Manama, where they had been been demanding political change.

    Armed patrols prowled neighborhoods and tanks also appeared in the streets for the first time Thursday.

    Medical officials said four people were killed, although there were unconfirmed reports of more casualties, with one website claiming 20 people had been "martyred."

    New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, who is in Bahrain, said that more than 600 people had been treated for their injuries and an opposition lawmaker, Ibrahim Mattar, told Reuters that 60 people were missing.

    Every revolution results in deaths. My only concern id that these people are asking for Democracy and that is doomed to eventually fail.

    I would be much happier if they were protesting and fighting for a republic like we have.

    Our Republic has out lived most democracies in history. Democracy means mob rule and that is never a good thing.
