While the US government has encouraged the Arab Spring uprisings as "people seeking a chance to contribute and to have a role in the decisions that will shape their lives," they've not been so tolerant of dissent here.

Compare and contrast the pretty words President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have said about democratic uprisings in Libya, Iran, and Egypt with the reality of unleashing police forces to viciously attack non-violent protestors across the states.

If this video doesn't put it into perspective for you, nothing will.
