Kuwait doesn’t see itself as an ingrate — they didn’t ask for our help. They hate us as much as any Islamic country, but they’re willing to take money from the infidels.

I can’t think of a time when they’d ever gave blood money to an Infidel, unless it served their own best interest. That’s the Muslim way. I’m just sorry we have to lose so many good people before we lean this old lesson.

Odds are the driver of the truck was not a Kuwaiti citizen, but a Third Country National. Also, odds are that he was shipped home (Probably either India or Bangladesh) soon after the accident happened.

What a sad story. I certainly hope that these clowns lose their contract-let’s hope someone has some Malkin’s and follows through on this.
Stonemeister, I was over in the sandbox in 1991 & spent sometime in Kuwait City. At that time they were very thankful for the US military coming to their rescue.
My husband said that when he came through in Feb. of this year on his way home they weren’t quite so friendly as they had been on his previous trips and nothing like they were in 91 when he was there too.

Question: Why didn’t the family initiate legal proceedings in Kuwati court as suggested by that government? What is the rest of the story?

That is a sad story. I’m glad you picked this up Erick. I’m emailing my senators here in Pennsylvania so I can throw in my 2 cents.
