Protests in Kuwait

Several hundred Kuwaitis demonstrated on Tuesday evening for a change of the Gulf state's prime minister and demanded more political freedoms, reports Reuters.

Demonstrators chanted in Arabic "The people want corruption to go" and "Leave, leave Nasser" as they stood in front of a large banner which read: "A new government, with a new prime minister, with a new approach."

Kuwait oil production is roughly 2.5 million barrels a day. This is just above Libya's production, but far below Saudi Arabia's production of 10 million barrels a day.

  1. I thought after we liberated this nation from the evil Saddam that joy & freedom were to follow.
    I guess that memo got lost on the way to the emir.
