Bahrain: Proud Bahraini

SillyBahrainiGirl says: “How are the football players faring? I doubt that all of them are enjoying the perks of life, if they had to play under the threat of getting a home, a car and money or losing it all should they lose the match! I don't see why anyone should perform under threat. I don't see how they could…. I am proud to be a Bahraini.. but what annoys me most is that we make the same mistakes over and over again as if there is a divine power out there making sure that our heads remain down…. All those infuriated by the opinions of a few – who have no interest in football – should look closer at how things are run back home. Maybe by looking at what went wrong, we can make things go right.”
