    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.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    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.
