A BAHRAINI court has upheld jail sentences against opposition figures convicted of plotting to overthrow the government.
Eight were sentenced to life and 10 others to 15-year terms.
As of September this year, at least 50 protesters have been killed by security forces. Do I hear a drumbeat to war coming from the Pentagon?
Where's the urgency within the international community to end this brutal treatment?
But Bahrain hosts the US Navy's Fifth Fleet. That's why I can't hear the drumbeat to war.
