      Seriously? Tell me, what do you call it then? What do you call attacking police cars, burning them and killing innocent peole? What do you call burning tires and blocking roads in many different areas of this country? Perhaps you should relook up the definition of terrorism. I mean, its just pointless really. You are harming the environment with all this intoxicated smoke, you're killing innocent people, you're blocking roads, and worst of all you record all of this on video and upload it on Youtube like it's a good thing. What are you trying to prove? Does burning tires and blocking roads make you feel tough? What's in it for you? Like what do you get from burning tires and attacking police cars? You say you want to rule Bahrain, well is this your way of showing leadership skills? By using terrorist acts? Damn, whatever happened to humanity..

      I agree with you. It is ignorant. For some reason the major news outlets are using the name of the country rather than its proper adjective to describe something about the country. I started noticing it maybe six months ago.

    Ignorance to the terrorists is bliss. Makes their job easier when noones paying attention to them. Terror doesnt belong anywhere. Lots of good men and women have died in the war on terror, dont forget that.

    They deserve what they get. They have terrorized Bahrain for so long. The citizens have been living in fear. Why should anyone live through this? It's not like the citizens are ruling the country. And who are they to demand leadership? If they don't like it then why are they still there? They say they don't have money, food, jobs, or anything else. Isn't free education and healthcare enough? Why do they have to compare themselves with people from other countries like UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar? These countries are rich and have lots of oil. Bahrain isn't rich and only has a very very limited supply of oil. And this " They need to give us jobs" is a whole other matter. It's not the governments duty to give them jobs. If they study hard then they WILL get jobs. Just like all the other citizens in the country. Sunni's don't get the upper hand when it comes to jobs or anything else. We are all equally treated the same. Burning tires is not a way to demand your rights, it is just wrong and stupid. The "stupid" thing about it is that they do this in their own neighborhoods and then they say that the government doesn't spend enough on Shiite neighborhoods. Why would the government waste its money if they're just going to burn tired and ruin their neighborhoods? I actually applaud the ruling family and hope they keep on doing what they have started to do and arrest and detain anyone connected to any sort of "terrorism" against the Kingdom of Bahrain and any other country in the world.
