Stop US Arms Sales to Bahrain!

Amnesty International is challenging a multimillion dollar U.S. arms deal to Bahrain. Since February of this year, the Bahraini armed forces have used tanks, armored vehicles, small arms and projectile weapons to inflict deaths and injuries on protestors demanding greater political freedom.  Even doctors have been jailed for treating the injured. Now the US Department of Defense has proposed selling even more military equipment to those same armed forces. The US maintains a naval base in Bahrain for the 5th fleet, but arming Bahrain after its bloody crackdown?  Which side does the US stand on: the side of democracy or brutality and dictatorship?
