Barry Obama pushing for more democracy in the Middle East

"The United States and the United Kingdom on Thursday declined to sign a UN document condemning the ongoing human rights abuses in Bahrain. "

PS Bahrain chief correspondent added:  "One more thing - these countries also refused to sign the statement:  Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta and Sweden.
What is up with Sweden really?? I used to like this country and just recently discovered that it sucks.  It wants to extradite Assange to the US if he is extradited to Sweden (its justice system is apparently really opaque); it sold arms to Saudi Arabia, and unlike Denmark which is tirelessly advocating for AlKhawaja to be released, Sweden has been mute about severely tortured Bahraini-Swedish citizen Mohammad Habib AlMuqdad who has received a life sentence for calling for the overthrow of the regime."
