Gulf War I[edit]

One author's recent additions seem an attempt to make it sound as though Kuwait was utterly razed after Gulf War I.

  • I would like to inform you that my sources are BBC and Britannia Website . The bombings and destruction of Kuwait Intl. Airport and Main Harbour (not aware of the name - think Shuwaik Port) and also that of the Royal Palace prove it . One can also visit Encarta site to check how notable my claims are . My own house in Kuwait was looted and fired at .Please sign your comments . thanks . --IncMan 15:40, May 19, 2005 (UTC)
  • I am not sure what you're talking about. I think you're mistaking the 2nd Gulf War with the first. There has been a Gulf War I which was between Iraq and Iran. Kuwait also got involved and it had its only offshore oil refinery destroyed, the late emir -sheik jaber- had a failed assassination attempt, several local cafes were blown up and other bombs were defused on the last minute.

Note on Infrastructure[edit]

Not much attentioned is paid on information about Kuwait's Infrastructure. Shouldn't we have a new catigory?

Timezone[edit]

Timezone of Kuwait +4 on summers? No way.

Other discussion/Questions and requests[edit]

It would be interesting to know the percentage of Kuwaitis that are Shi'ites and Sunnis. The statistic given of percentage Sunnis/Shi'ites on the current page takes includes expat Arabs. This is important to know whether the government is fairly represented by both sects and does not discriminate.

Obvious nonsense?[edit]

May it isn't but at first glance the following line in the article strikes me as such:

Kuwait's press was described as one of the freest in the world

Yes the given website is cited correctly, but the line if taken literally seems highly questionable to me. Maybe somebody claimed that (falsely) at some point, maybe it was meant to refer to the Arab world at the time. But claiming that a country under an authoritarian/autocrat rule was one of freest in the global world seems highly questionable. In short that line needs better sourcing and/or more details or it should be removed.--Kmhkmh (talk) 20:14, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
