The New Welcoming Sign At Kuwait Airport
Last May I posted the following:
“The government is in a much more vulnerable position than it was prior to the National Assembly being dissolved (there are loose ends hanging about…they won’t just disappear into thin air). If the government doesn’t deliver the Five Year Development program (i.e. hospitals, infrastructure, water and electricity) demanded by all faces of the political spectrum: Islamists, Liberals, Tribal, Shiite – and, frankly I doubt they will – a political powder keg will ignite. In other words, I expect the life expectancy of this new Parliament to be one year (I’ll see you at the polls again next Spring).”
Well it has happened hasn’t it? Not that it gives me any pleasure – voting again for the third time in four years is not my idea of progress. The next two months be prepared to listen to more pure, unadulterated electoral bullshit, rivaling a decade’s worth of KUNA wires.
Are you ready?
