Concern over US arms deals

The United States' decision to resume arms shipments to Bahrain is concerning, given Bahraini security forces' ongoing violent crackdown on protesters.

In spite of US assurances that it will not transfer weapons used to harm civilians, the US shipments send an alarming signal to the world that it is more interested in propping up the local regime than in respecting the human rights of Bahrain's people.
