To: His Majesty Sheikh Hamad ibn Isa Al Khalifa
UPDATED TO ADD: You too, Yemen. Yo, Gaddafi, the entire world is tired of your BS; give some thought to retirement before it is forced upon you. Fighter jet airstrikes on protesters? And you wonder why you have protesters? Too bad the rumor you'd fled to Venezuela was untrue.
YET ANOTHER UPDATE: Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Force of Bahrain, has found a way to respond to his people that does not involve gunning them down in the streets. He has withdrawn the military from the streets and called for a national day of mourning. The son succeeds where the father fails. May we all have such good fortune in our lives.
