    Don't stop telling the important stories of what is going on in Bahrain, Libya and all the brave people demanding freedom. I can't tell you how deeply I feel for peoples who have left fear behind and have taken the bold step out of repression. You cannot educate people and expect them to accept themselves as children needing to be lead. I respect your reporting and I wish you also continued freedom from fear.

    I was disheartened to hear some of your viewers felt you should concentrate on U.S. issues rather than show us what is happening in the Middle East. I am a black woman, a U.S. citizen and I am not a muslim. What I am is fortunate, but this does not come without a price. Freedom never does. Please continue to do what you are doing. Continue to show the world the oppressed, regardless of religion or ethnicity. My peoples' oppression was argued as economical during American slavery, too. A lame excuse for the greed and power mongering then and now!

    Mr. Anderson Cooper,
    we need your help to have more coverage about Libya. CNN seems more focus on Bahrain.
    Libya needs more support because there is no journalist there. Gadaffi tries to isolate his people to have more control. Please speak more about Libyan protesters.
    Libya went down hell since Gadafi took over.
    Libyans need your & CNN help.
    Thank you,
    Aziza Junifer Megrissi

    We see a a sharp contrast when there was an urgent US protest in case of Egypt uprising over brutality/attacks on people . In case of Bahrain massacre US is has just sent a formal rebuke to Bahrain leader ..... why ??

    When I watched the news coming from Egypt last week, I was not really surprised because I experienced the same thing in 1986 in Haiti after the departure of the former president Jean – Claude Duvalier. It was a very devasting moment for the entire nation. I was only 14 years old living a peaceful life and did not understand why. I have witnessed some horrible acts such as people dying on the streets, bodies "decapitated", landmarks on fire, governments after governments come and go and so on. After all, as I look back, I do see no change. Instead, we are going backward and things are getting worse and noone ever points out the fact that Haiti has become a corrupted country where people cannot live anymore and where thousands are compelled to flee to other countries. The kidnapping "phenomenon" is an everyday nightmare for many folks living in Haiti. Young women are rapped and certain live in prostitution, which was banned by the government when I was little. It is true that people need democracy, nevertheless, "anarchy" it is not democracy. When changing a government, the people need to be prepared to face the consequences. Changing a government is great, but what next is the biggest question.
