Kuwait as described by the Gulf Daily News

Searching the Google News portal (as I usually do every morning) I came across this article from the Bahraini Gulf Daily News, that personifies the curren state of affairs in Kuwait. While I usully oppose any criticism of Kuwait's internal affairs by non-Kuwaitis, especially non-residents, I found this article to be well-concieved, if not slightly belittling. But facts as they are, it does have an element of truth that has been accurately represented in a Video Game, of all things.

You only need to read this other article to surmise just how close the analogy is. Long live Sid Meir!

My husband is a Civ addict. He gets lost for hours solving Civ dilemmas.

Which is a total crack-up because he does pretty much the same kind of management in real life. So he comes home from macro level management and relaxes by playing Civ. LLLOOOLLLLL.

Interesting article. If actions don't have consequences, no one learns. Not in the US, with the sub-prime loans, not in Kuwait, also sub-prime loans.
