"While we are diverted by the opera-bouffe spectacle of the civil war in Libya’s desert, a genuine tragedy — and potential geopolitical trainwreck — is unfolding in Bahrain. Those plucky demonstrators we saw occupying the Pearl Square roundabout in Manama, the capital of Bahrain, have been swept away by government security forces — together with the 300 foot monument at the roundabout, which came to symbolize the aspirations of the protesters and was therefore demolished by the government in a representative display of heavy-handedness."
