Kuwait’s Phony Ad

By Debbie Schlussel
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.

Gee, I wonder how much that barbarian in a dirty nightshirt, Dr. Anal Al-Rasheet, will donate to the victims of the Islamic terrorists he’s supporting?
Typical Muslim duplicity – Smile in the face of your “enemy du jour” with a handful of candy, then, take out your sword and chop off his head as he reaches for it.

And Bush is supporting them? Like a Marine friend says: If we had our way and there were no rules of engagement, we would turn the Middle east into glass (using MOABS and Daisy Cutters and not nuke bombs), save Israel of course, take the oil and share it with our allies who helped us. Osama bin Laden’s head would be on a stick and pig blood would flow every where.
That’s what I want, not Bush holding hands like a sissy in Texas and killing off our troops. As for our border, what illegal would dare cross over? Would you?

KOAJaps,
You said, “And Bush is supporting them?”
Tell me, explicitly, how Bush is supporting the Kuwaiti’s? Foreign aid, perhaps? Nope, Kuwait is an oil-rich country. If you mean that he hasn’t invaded that country, well, he hasn’t invaded hundreds of other countries, either.
You also said, “…not Bush holding hands like a sissy in Texas…”
FYI, he’s back at the White House. He ended his vacation after Katrina hit – unlike Congress, whose members (including DemocRATS) didn’t cut short their vacations.
You also said, “As for our border, what illegal would dare cross over? Would you?”
What does this mean? FYI, there are millions of invaders crossing our borders every year. BTW, your hero, BJ Clinton, and his lovely wife, Hugo, sped up the legalization process of hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens (including those with criminal histories) just in time for them to vote for him in the 1996 presidential election.

I never said Kuwait. i said Saudi Arabia. 17 of the 19 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia and the Bush admin blocked lawsuit against the Saudi government after 9/11?
And here is the hand-holding pic. If you all this straight-acting, then you call it what you like. This is America and the only time I held a man’s hand was my dad and that was when I was a kid.

Hey Thee_Bruno, so you’re assuming that just because I bash Bush with facts that I like Clinton? Therefore can I assume that since you are a supporter of Bush that you support his grandfather, Prescott, who supported the Nazi party during WW2? Yes, Prescott Bush had businessdealings with Hitler. At least I have the sense to know you don’t. And if you think I’m full of “S”, e-mail Debbie. Oh and Prescott Bush stole Geonimo’s bones and it’s safely ensconsed in the Yale’s Skull and Bones. Also, did you know that Clinton attended Bohemian Grove? I trust no one who promotes big government, like thumb-scanning, NAFTA, RFID, as well as

So don’t mistake me supporting a hillbilly who wants a New World Order. I like neither men.

Dear Debbie,
I stumbled upon your blog by a Random google search and read your Kuwait’s Phony Ad post. I’m a proud Kuwaiti, and have been studying in the US for 5 years now.
I must admit that I agree with you on the show-off of the Ad itself. I’m a believer in doing good deeds without advertising for it. However, I beg to differ with you on a few things and I hope my opinion is well taken on your blog.
There is no discussion about the US leading the coalition to liberate my country. However, it was a “coalition” of 33 countries. Yes, the US contributed more than all other countries, but British, French, Egyptian, Syrian, and Saudi contributions were still significant. And it wasn’t all for free. I’m not here to brag about that. Please, know that I am grateful till this day for the US led effort to get my country back.
As to the $500 millions out of the gazillions you guys pay for oil. You said it I guess. You don’t pay us those gazillions for nothing. Isn’t that the simple rule of economics? When there is a seller, there’s a purchaser? with money in the middle. I don’t think the US needed $500 millions from a tiny country of the size of New Jersey, however I supported the aid. I think international relations are built way beyond emotions.
As to us smoking water pipes and reading the Quran, trust me the picture is totally different. I was there during the Iraqi occupation of my country. The whole 7 months. I lost 2 cousins of mine (the remains of whom were just recovered in Iraqi mass graves) and had more POW’s than 2. 605 Kuwaiti POW’s were captured by Iraqi forces out of the whole population of 600,000. That is 0.1% of the whole population, which is huge. Let alone the Kuwaitis who were killed in Kuwait during the occupation. Compare and do the math for the US population of, say, 260 millions. You’ll get 260 thousands. So, I assure you our people didn’t just smoke water pipes and read the Quran.
We don’t support terror as we were just hit by a wave of attacks, in addition to the Iraqi terror in the 90′s. I don’t think the Emir funds Terrorist organizations. If he did, America would make it hell on earth for him in Kuwait. Talk about a regime change. Plus, if terrorist charities are allowed to operate in the US, then Kudos to the US government.
As to the 60 minutes episode, I have to agree it is disgraceful. I’m an active person on Kuwaiti student movement, and we condemned that crap when it was aired. But what can I say when you have these PM’s elected by the people. Democracy hurts some times, and it does specailly in my country where I’m not allowed to be free on many things. So I’m with you here. However, Mr. Mike Wallace picked a couple members out of 50 and you’re generalizing it for all the people in power. Let me assure again, I, as a kuwaiti, am grateful for the US government and the American people for sending their troops to liberate my country. When you hear a few noisy voices, that’s just a by-product of our semi democracy. It’s not all Kuwaitis.
As to asking the Minister why his country hates the US. It doesn’t. Yes, some people do, but not the whole country. And if the US is hated, in kuwait or else where, hatred is a reaction. Unfortunately the Average muslim only has access to Aljazeera, which I dispise, and a well funded propaganda is brain washing him.
Finally, I’m proud to have been spending this much time within the US soceity. It taught me alot and showed me how great this country is. It’s been a second home, so trust me I don’t hate you.
Sorry for the long comment. Peace.
