To the Editor:
   The minority Sunni government in Bahrain is three years past its expiration date. Any legitimacy a monarchy claimed in the 21st century died when the King's forces gunned down peaceful protesters in Pearl Square. The family Khalifa now gets to choose between a cushy exile and getting beaten to death in the streets like col. Qaddafi. There will be no peace short of one of those ends.
   Of course the U.S. should keep diplomatic channels open throughout. but we should grant them nothing for their tantrums. And we must not be party to their oppression of Bahrainis.
