West averts its eyes from happenings in bahrain

·         While US and its allies attacked libya, and put sanctions on syria supporting the peoples movement for democracy in their countries, they have turned a blind eye to the plights of people of bahrain
·         In bahrain, sunni rulers govern shia majority. This has been so sinc 1783
·         Its prime minister is worlds longest serving unelected PM
·         Uneployment is highest among gulf countries at 15%
·         Yet US doesn’t take action coz
o   It is a strategic ally of US
o   US navy’s 5th fleet is stationed bahrain
o   It is a counter wight for the shia ruled iran
·         It is clear from this that when there is a clash between interest and values , US and its allies chose interests over values
