Reader comment on item: What Riyadh Buys [in Washington]
in response to reader comment: Terrorism Kuwaiti style.

Submitted by Hammad (Kuwait), Nov 3, 2008 at 00:32

/// Yes, Kuwait is corrupt, very much so. I should know, I've lived the most part of my life here. The thing is, an awful lot of the things you're saying are not true. ...Kuwaiti terrorist camps? ....

'Several attacks in last few weeks by the youthful Kuwaitis killing several Kuwaiti security officials while looking for American targets and then getting away, is the result of American intelligence's complacency.'

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but does the exact same thing not happen in every other country in the world? Childish, racist youths scouting out foreigners to 'teach them a lesson'. It happens an awful lot in the States, I can tell you that!

There are many more things I've picked up on, and I will continue with this later. At the moment, I have a class to attend, with no corrupt lecturers or directors or anything. Good day.

I am not writing this as a biased Kuwaiti, but as a non biased half Kuwaiti half British 18 year old. I know that there is plenty wrong with this country, but the things you are writing just sound like propaganda.
