That was the dialog. :D

On a related note, we have a promise of protests in Kuwait:


March 8, 2011
Youth groups in Kuwait plan to hold demonstrations Tuesday calling for the resignation of the prime minister and for greater political freedoms, Al Jazeera reports. Two groups called the al-Soor al-Khames (Fifth Fence) and Kafi rally followers on Twitter to take to the streets on Tuesday as parliament holds its first session in six weeks.

I suspect that the protest will fizzle when the Kuwaitis realize that they have to protest themselves, and can't hire someone else to do it for them.

I was wondering why Kuwaitis would protest. I mean, they don't do ANYTHING. I've never seen so many $60,000+ cars in any one place other than an Auto Show than my trip from Camp Iwo Jima to Doha. It was like Jay Leno's garage rolling down the freeway. Anyone who did any labor at all were Indian. The Kuwaitis themselves seemed pretty happy, and no wonder! Granted this was 8 years ago.

Kuwait is still a Constitutional hereditary emirate. I guess the protestors want more say so in politics since political parties are non-existant. But it's true. The natives don't do anything. It's the Indians and some Philipinos that do all the labor.
