 File under: Arab Spring 

#1 We fought a war to put these murdering dictators back on their thrones.

Their pal's the saudis can kill 3000 people in USA and then get us to run round taking out their regional rivals.

If you thought you were fight against islamo dictators, think again. You've been fighting for them.

#2 I'm aware of Kuwait as a conservative country but they are mindful of Americans and considered better allies than most Arabs.

Not sure about the claim they are murdering dictators though but they do have censorship laws against royalty.

#3 Very, very wealthy Bedouins. Perspective; think 16 exclusive tribes of Beyonce and Jay-z types who control all the oil in Texas, and hire everything done by Filipino third country nationals.

A non-sequitor. The Sauds are not the Kuwaitis' "pals" (odd phrase coming from a Brit.) Hardly.

I overheard a conversation during a meeting with RSN officials some years back, where one of the senior officers (Prince something-or-other) got up and said something in arabic. Everyone laughed.

My counterpart translated: "Excuse me, I've got to go to Kuwait."

We're not fighting against them - we're fighting against some of the troglodyte scum they rule, but can't control, on account of the scum having this habit of overthrowing rulers who are insufficiently devout (to Islam). In the Mid East, the Muslim hoi polloi are the scum of the earth. If we could deport the lot of them to Alpha Centauri, the earth would be a better place.
