        I see a big difference between say Bahrain and Libya.With tens of thousands protesting, and a death toll so far of 6 or 7 (officially, and as far as we can learn from the media), there is obviously not a policy of shoot to kill, unlike probably Libya or Iran last year.

        Putting it in context, the homicide rate in Bahrain last week approached that of Camden NJ.
