See the full-page ad paid for by the Kuwaiti government in today’s USA Today?
Nice that the country had money to waste on this ad that rings as true as the Saudi ads claiming to be our “allies” in the war against (rather than what they really are–PERPETRATORS OF) terror. The ad claims: “We will never forget that the support and courage of the American people helped us reclaim our country in 1991.” (As I recall, we didn’t just “help.” We did the whole job.)
Nice, too, that the country donated $500 million out of the gazillions we pay them for oil.
Unfortunately, the ad and the show of support are phony. In fact, Kuwait has forgotten the support and courage of the American people–who, again, didn’t just “help” Kuwaitis reclaim their country, but did the whole job, while Kuwaitis smoked water pipes and read the Koran.
The government of Kuwait that was so appreciative of our efforts has been overtaken by Kuwaitis who hate America and support terror. Why else did the Emir of Kuwait funnel monies to Islamic charities and institutions in the U.S. accused of laundering money to Bin Laden?
A 2003 “60 Minutes” report by Mike Wallace showed how much the Kuwaitis now in power hate us. And how those, who supported us for saving the very existence of their country from Greater Saddamia, are now exiled from their country.
E-mail Kuwait’s Minister of Information, Dr. Anas Al-Rasheed (who signed the USA Today ad), and ask him why his country hates us–the people who saved his countrymen’s rears. Spending thousands on an ad and millions on relief here, won’t change the growing, utter hatred of the U.S. over there.
