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

Most of what you wrote here is ...wrong
First, we Kuwaitis are a minority in our own country, we don't have jobs, we don't decent services, and everyone abuses us financially thinking every Kuwaiti owns an oil rig...

Second, no not all MPs are in good terms with tribes. To be elected in Kuwait, one must a. be part of a wealthy family or b. be part of an islamic political party or c. be part of a large tribe. Also from time to time decent people get elected.

Third, about the abuse of expats in Kuwait. My simple answer to that is...please pack up and go back to your country.

Fourth, Influence Peddling is a result of a social-dependent society.

Fifth & last, who ... fed you all this ... about Kuwait?
