That's not a surprise for me!

They have the right to question the the position their goverment chose to take.

Would you accept that our goverment send our children to fight in a place like Sri Lanka or Cambodia or whatever?

Wow!! What an interesting title!! 1990 huh? Its a good question if your gonna fight for a country you havent even heard of!

Cloudy stars: well it's interesting isnt it?

Salah: not really a surprise for me either. they absolutely have the right to question.

the reason I posted is that the image got a visceral response from me for some reason, i think i'm gonna print and frame it. When I look around, sometimes I wonder if we, as a collective, know what Kuwait is and whether we'd die for it?

Maryooma/eshda3wa: i'm glad it's clear for you.

just a bunch of thoughts said...

That is pretty interesting. I've always wondered what American publication back then posted about us. I just never searched for it yet. Thanks for sharing.

& of course, I'd be asking the same if roles were reversed.
