Perhaps sanctions wasn't the right word, I'm not a political person (and do my best to avoid such topics). Either way, I'm talking as an F1 fan and not a fan of certain groups of people, politics, religions or regimes. It's always going to be a touchy subject re AI, for instance it's amazing how many people still support Greenpeace. Not much difference there.
Don't take anything as "I agree with what they're doing" or "I like what happens in Bahrain". Most of us wouldn't care less about what happens in China where apparently far worse things often happen.
Re comparison to Daily Mail, no it's nothing harsh, I wasn't referring to anything they may have hidden or anything because frankly I don't care. They're just muppets to be ignored. I meant their ability to exaggurate things enough to make you want to punch them.
I can't argue too much about it because I don't know enough about it, nor care enough. I'll admit that much

You only have to think about the moment when JB and crew had to avoid kidnappers at Brazil - if safety cant be assured in a country thats been a part of F1 for a life time why argue about Bahrain.
The most accurate decription I ever heard of F1 was 'A 200mph catwalk'.
The models on show are damned slight better looking than anything on a normal catwalk though! And they sound better, and turn off when you've finished them with.

No idea what you mean....
And now it appears Anonymous are in on the act, ddosing the formula1.com site as well as other services for "human rights" reasons. These people are just as bad, and I thought as a whole they were a bit more intelligent. Unfortunately not, this attack is for revenge reasons more than anything based on something that happened over there.
Never mind, we won't mention anything that happens in South America or China then.
sorry pcstru, I'm not going to argue it with you because it's clear you're not interested in listening or believing someone else can have an opinion. In my slight defense, it's nothing like what you've just suggested, rather a query as to why it's OK for someone to take action like this against Bahrain when far worse happens elsewhere.
I asked you two perfectly reasonable questions :In my slight defense, it's nothing like what you've just suggested, rather a query as to why it's OK for someone to take action like this against Bahrain when far worse happens elsewhere.
Why do you seem to think that just because regime A get's away with Human rights abuses, that we can't mention the abuses in regime B?
Or that because someone doesn't explicitly condemn all the ills in the world, they are forbidden from mentioning any specific ill?
Your 'defence' begs them, it doesn't begin to address them.
Becasue unless we have a dedicated human rights abuses channel, there wouldn't be enough time in the day to list them all in the news.
