Will there be a UN General Assembly condemnation of the shooting of unarmed demonstrators by Bahrain government soldiers and/or police? The Tundra Tabloids thinks not, anymore than you can expect one against the Libyan government.

This is the horrifying moment troops open fire on innocent protesters on a day when the number killed across the Middle East reached almost 120. Dozens of demonstrators chanted as they marched towards tanks in Bahrain but they fled seconds later as the clatter of bullets ricocheted through the street. Two protesters lay motionless with blood spilling onto the road while as many as 50 others walked away wounded in the attack in the country’s second city of Manama. The shocking scenes resembled dozens of similar protests in Libya, Yemen and Jordan where citizens demanded democratic reform in a ‘Friday of Rage’ sweeping the crisis-hit region.
