Graphic Video Of Army Shooting At Peaceful Bahrain Protestors

Tyler Durden's picture





 

As more videos such as this make the mainstream, we are concerned that not only are the days of the current Bahrain King and crown prince numbered (which also implies the future of the US Navy's 5th fleet is uncertain), but that Saudi Arabia, which has supposedly volunteered to get involved in restoring "peace" to its small neighbor, is getting ever more nervous. We continue to be amazed at how effectively the Bernanke Put is working to mask the true level of geopolitical instability. If and when the crowd realizes that Bernanke, who has proven his efficiency at printing dollar signs on pieces of cotton, may be slightly less adept at doing the same with barrels of oil, the outcome will be amusing.

Warning: very graphic.

For those wondering about the composition of the 5th Fleet, we recreate it below courtesy of Wikipedia:

  • Task Force 50, Battle Force (~1 x Forward Deployed Carrier Strike Group)
  • Task Force 51, Amphibious Force (~1 x Expeditionary Strike Group)
  • Task Force 52, mining/demining force
  • Task Force 53, Logistics Force[4]/Sealift Logistics Command Central, Military Sealift Command (MSC replenishment ships plus USN MH-53E Sea Stallion helicopters and C-130 Hercules, C-9 Skytrain II and/or C-40 Clipper aircraft)
  • Task Force 54, (dual-hatted as Task Force 74) Submarine Force
  • Task Force 55, Operation Iraqi Freedom: Constellation Carrier Strike Force; June 2003: mine clearing force, including elements from the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program
  • Task Force 56, Navy Expeditionary Combat Command force.[5]
    • CTG 56.1 Explosive Ordnance Disposal / Expeditionary Diving and Salvage[6]
    • CTG 56.2 Naval Construction Forces
    • CTG 56.3 Expeditionary Logistics Support; Provides logistics support for USN/USA/USMC, cargo movement and customs throughout AOR
    • CTG 56.4 Riverine; Provides riverineprotection of waterways from illegal smuggling of weapons, drugs and people
    • CTG 56.5 Maritime Expeditionary Security; Provides
      anti-Terrorism/Force Protection of land/port/littoral waterway
      operations for USN and Coalition assets, as well as point defense of
      strategic platforms and MSC vessels
    • CTG 56.6 Expeditionary Combat Readiness; Provides administrative
      “Sailor support” for all Individual Augmentees, and administers the Navy
      Individual Augmentee Combat Training Course and Warrior Transition
      Program
  • Task Force 57, (dual-hatted as Task Force 72) Patrol and
    Reconnaissance Force (P-3 and EP-3 Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance
    Aircraft)
  • Task Force 58, Maritime Surveillance Force (Northern Persian Gulf)
  • Task Force 59, Expeditionary Force/Contingency Force (when required,
    eg. July–August 2006 Lebanon evacuation operation, in conjunction with Joint Task Force Lebanon) In February 2007 it was conducting Maritime Security Operations[8] and as of Nov. 2, 2007, it was running a crisis management exercise.

The key issue now that the public has no trust left at all in the crown prince is that nobody is willing to engage in any form of constructive dialogue, meaning that the only option for King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa and his crown prince is to start fuelling the G-6. Also, it may be time for Jim O'Neill to add Bahrain to the N-11: the country's general labor union just announced an indefinite strike starting today.

Full update on the latest events from Bahrain, courtesy of Al Arabiya:

Anti-government protesters in Bahrain swarmed back into a symbolic
square on Saturday, putting riot police to flight in a striking victory
for their cause and confidently setting up camp for a protracted stay.

Crowds had approached Pearl Square in Manama from different directions,
creating a standoff with riot police who had moved in earlier to replace
troops withdrawn on royal orders. Suddenly police raced to their buses,
which drove away mounting kerbs in their haste to escape.

The emboldened protesters, cheering and waving national flags, ran to
the centre of the traffic circle, reoccupying it even before all the
police had left. The crowd waved fleeing policemen through.

"We don't fear death anymore, let the army come and kill us to show the
world what kind of savages they are," said Umm Mohammed, a teacher
wearing a black abaya cloak.

Troops in tanks and armoured vehicles took over the traffic circle on
Thursday after riot police attacked protesters who had camped out there,
killing four people and wounding 231.

Bahrain's crown prince announced that all troops had been ordered off the streets and that police would maintain order.

"That's a very positive step," Jasim Hussain, a member of the main
Shiite Wefaq bloc that quit parliament on Thursday, told Reuters.
"They're trying to ease the tensions. I don't know whether it will be
sufficient."

"We hope to hear a clear message from the government that it will stop killing people who are protesting peacefully."

Mattar said the king must accept the "concept" of constitutional monarchy, as well as withdrawing the military.

"Then we can go for a temporary government of new faces that would not include the current interior or defence ministers."

He reiterated an opposition demand for the king to fire his uncle,
Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman al-Khalifa, crown prince, and prime minister
since Bahrain gained its independence in 1971.

"We are not going to enter a dialogue as Shi'ites," Mattar said. "They
try to put the issue in this frame. The dialogue should be with all
people who were protesting. Some are liberal, non-Islamic. Some are
Sunni and some Shi'ite."

Bahrain's general labor union called an indefinite strike on Saturday in
protest against "violent acts" by police and demanding the right to
demonstrate peacefully.

Bahrain's main Shiite opposition group said on Saturday that the
government must resign and the army pull off the streets of the capital
before it will take up an offer of dialogue from the crown prince.

"To consider dialogue, the government must resign and the army should
withdraw from the streets" of Manama, said Abdul Jalil Khalil Ibrahim,
parliamentary leader of the Islamic National Accord Association
(Al-Wefaq), the largest Shiite opposition bloc.

"What we're seeing now is not the language of dialogue but the language of force," he said.

On Friday King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa said he had granted the crown
prince all powers to fulfil the hopes and aspirations of all gracious
citizens from all sections" in the national dialogue.

Bahrain's
crown prince appealed on television for calm. "Today is the time to sit
down and hold a dialogue, not to fight," he said on Friday.

The monarch's offer of dialogue "is not serious," said the INAA's top
MP, urging the authorities to take "serious and sincere measures that
meet the requirements of the current situation".

"The situation is complicated and I fear it has run out of control,"
warned Ibrahim, whose group -- which holds 18 of the 40 seats in
parliament -- has pulled out in protest.

Bingo. From Wikipedia:

The Government of Bahrain has a cooperative agreement with the United States Military and has provided the United States a base in Juffair since the early 1990s. This is the home of the headquarters for Commander, United States Naval Forces Central Command (COMUSNAVCENT) / United States Fifth Fleet (COMFIFTHFLT), and about 1500 United States and coalition military personnel.[81]

You think this was staged?  Have you even been downrange from a gun being fired at you?  "more likely fireworks" ??? How ignorant you are to think that.  The reason it sounds like small pops is because at that range you only hear small pops and whizzes.  The microphone on the camera doesn't have the ability to record the full range of audio.  Its then encoded with a loss-full encoding algorithm and streamed on youtube.  So of course it sounds like fireworks.   Now please go down range and re-setup my targets ... I'm going to play with some black cats while you do that.  Dumbass.

I was in the US Army for 8 years, and I confirm from my experience of being down range of getting fired at, that this is small arms fire.  It sounds like M-16 fire (5.56mm).  One thing I know for certain is that it definitely is not blanks nor fireworks.

There are hundreds of witnesses, not only protesters. Foreign journalists were also there and doctors could confirm severe wounds. And there are dozens of other videos / viewpoints on the internet.

Sure, some things can be staged. But to stage an event like this you would need hundreds of actors, including foreign journalists from BBC, Al Jazeera and NYT. The probability is very unlikely.

Unmistakably small arms fire.  The bullets get there before the sound of the weapon firing.  The bullets, being supersonic, make the high pitched crack you hear.  Listen to the sound at the very end of the firing, right at 0:19; you hear the crack of the bullet going by, then just after that you hear the weapon report.

I know this sound.

It is about religious idealogy were people are taught loyalty to a religion or a sect is more important than your country, your government or your flag. This may sound foreign to a proud American but thats the reality in all of the middle east.

OK, now there's something we can build on. True religion is far more important to people of the Middle East, or put another way they haven't accepted the gods of state or capital into their life.

But what's changed with the current uprising, the size of oil funded state power, the spoils of communication that capital provides, is what gives gumption to those looking to reaffirm connections to a particular sky fairy. Islamists don't want an ATM at every street corner, and since people of the US appear to have sold their souls to banks, the threat of "Americanization" is all too prominent. Throw in some hungry children, and ...

Thank you for the sensible reponse (and not junking me ;) ).  Its not about Americanization, eventhough many Americans are actually against it. Its about people who want to impose 15th century laws on the population and they use religion as a tool to control and brainwash the minds of young people mainly the poor and under educated. They are very powerful, so powerful in fact that you do not hesitate to give up your life for the cause otherwise how do you explain somebody strapping an explosive belt on himself and blowing it up in a crowd of people for his cause. Islamists, not muslims, carry hatred towards anybody who is different and does not go by thier rules. You are either with us or against us. There is no middle ground. The are against secular governments that allow thier citizens to live in feedom.The middle east in the past decade has wintnessed many changes and as many other parts of the world became victim of globalization, just like the average Americans worker, where things have changed rapidly. Many citizens have adapted and faired well but in the sametime others saw thier standards of living go down. Rich people got richer and the poor got poorer and the middle class was shrinking rapidly due to high infaltion and lower pay. The Isalmists blame all this on western values and point to things like nightclubs and liquor stores as evidence of social and moral deterioration and such reasons to topple those secular governments.

"Rich people got richer and the poor got poorer and the middle class was shrinking rapidly due to high infaltion and lower pay."

Whoa, now if we don't have common problems I don't know who does. My thesis is these problems arise from political association, involuntary access to everyman's labor via capital, and while far from being entirely evil (space exploration, pyramids, great wall), needs to be administered on a wholly ground up consensual level without sovereign immunity else the more evil aspirations take hold. Given reasoned and in-depth enough communication between human followers of pseudo-secular profits, a common rational eventually takes hold. It's communication that evolving, both here and there, and some well heeled players used to enjoying a monopoly on how information is politically applied (hey I can make 10's of billions by buddying up with this here oil starved country right...) are about to take ... well to use a politically polarized reference, one in the gipper.

So if it's not about that very specific style of westernization called Americanization, I think the argument can be reduced to semantics.

Of course many of our problems are common. We all live in a global economy and since the US won the cold war everybody had to embrace "Americanization" otherwise you would be left out. Even the former (and current) communists have embraced the American culture and this was the main goal of the United States, to export it values and economic sytem to the world. In order to trade with the west you have to embrace free market and join the WTO. The IMF mandated that governments sell national assets to private companies, many of which are European and American. Pirce controls are not allowed neither are subsedies.  Nowadays, if you travel to any Middle Eastern city you will be greated with a Starbucks as soon as you step off the plane. Mega Malls, BK, McD and KFC line the streets. American educated technocrats run the governments hence the similarities in fiscal and economical policies. This has created two completely differnet classes, the western oriented, secular pro-government liberals and the traditional, more conservative and often religious class. Sooner or later those forces were bound to clash and some of it is happening as we speak. Throw in some corruption and some Ben B. induced inflation and you have a revolution on your hand.

#1 Why would this sound foreign to an American, proud or otherwise?  You've just described a die-hard lefty Democrat or righty Republican, where loyalty to their party is more important than the country, the government, or the flag.

#2 Are you fucking serious?  Only a statist douchebag would argue that loyalty to the government is more important than loyalty to your kin.  You got it absolutely backwards.  Most true-blooded Americans would put God, Family, Community, Country.  Your sad slave-mentality is irritating.

Dear Ignoramus,

When you actually LIVE in the Middle East, for such a length of time that would grant even an idiot of your caliber the background to understand the people and the culture, and thus gain an insight that would enable you to interpret the events happening there, then (maybe) you'll have something useful to contribute to any discussion of the same.

Until then, you just need to stick a cock in your mouth and fellate it until your esophagus is slathered in man juice.  Anything else would be an underutilization of your only skillset.

Why do you think all those people lining up to get in the US so they can go and vote? 60% of the population doesn't even vote, and I am one of them, becasue it doesn't matter who wins, the system will not change. Most people care about the welfare and safety of thier families and be able to give them a decent life. This is no different in the US, or in the middle east or anywehre else world.

If I could get Robert Kahre on the ballot, promising on day one in office to sign a pre-written executive order to instill term limits, would you consider voting for him? (And keep in mind that, unless pardoned, he'd be imprisoned for his entire term.)

I hear the argument for not voting loud and clear and I'm very sympathetic, but my trouble with that versus voting Libertarian (or the "most viable third party") is it lumps one in the apathetic crowd. You can say that voting for anyone justifies the current system just as easily as not voting does.

Have you ever been to the Middle East?  I have.  It is not the rich, lazy Sunni Arabs that are protesting.  It's the dirt poor Shiites.  You probably don't know there is a difference - or care.  You are an absolutely clueless, spineless creature of the sea, but that's ok, because my kids always laugh at you.

She never paused speaking. When Secretary Clinton began her speech, Mr. McGovern remained standing silently in the audience and turned his back.

More doom.

Do you know what "rubber bullets" means?

I don't see any blood, even one minute after the impacts. And only 3 "corpses" for a machine gun fire???

Most of them continue to stay on the road after the shooting like nothing happened. They seem to know the bullets are not real. Not a lot of panicked screams too. The sound of the shooting is the typical crackling of rubber bullets. Lead bullets would have done a much more powerful, characteristic sound. 

This is obviously a common video which has been transformed into a 'massacre' by civil rights activist networks: for them, even a flashball shooting is the end of the world.

Dead? Or does he play the dead in order to escape further fire? If I were him I would have done the same thing: keep my face down. 

There is indeed some liquid, which may be blood, but that's not surprising: even rubber bullets can cause bleeding, notably in sanguine areas (face, ears, neck, etc.)

Again, I've watched the complete video on Associated Press, and absolutely nothing demonstrates it is live fire with metal bullets. Everything in the video is strange. 

We are in the XXIth century, and a government has absolutely no interest in opening live fire with lead bullets on protesters: rubber bullets and tear gas are sufficient to tame any riot. Live fire with dangerous bullets can only motivate protesters more. 

The dead in the Middle-East riots were due to crowd movements, looters, criminals, etc.

Rubber bullets are not really rubber but rubber coated so they aren't as deadly as say green tips so they are used to disperse crowds but when they strike the head they are capable of doing damge. Realy, if the governmnet forces wanted those people dead they would be dead.

Holy shit!  I was in Manama just 3 months ago for the Society of Petroleum Engineer conference.  I walked on that very same street in the video, and I even listened to the President talk.  If I hadn't have lived through the Hurricane Katrina, Ike, and Rita evacuations, I wouldn't believe how quickly things can change - but that's exactly what happens for the unprepared. Things are normal one day, and the next, it's utter chaos, and it's every man for himself.  I suggest everyone loads up in bulk at Sam's Club.  This is not going to get any better (even here in the US).  Sorry to sound like a fear-mongerer, but it is prudent these days to prepare for any outcome with regards to the coming oil shock and food shortages.

 

I hope they pay dearly for this.  It will be interesting to hear Hillary Clinton this week, but I only expect some BS like, "The US is committed to moving forward with the People of Bahrain, and we do not condone this violence."
