Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Unjust Arrest and Detainment of a Kuwaiti Blogger

In short I want to extend my deepest sadness and full support to the Kuwaiti community for this unjust behavior. I’d like to say that I do not condone such actions. The unjust behavior we have heard about yesterday must be looked into and we must stand together for our brothers and sisters.

    Yeah, I read about this. If it’s true and such a thing can happen to a Kuwaiti blogger, don’t know what will happen to us expats. And that too for no fault of theirs.

    Sene,
    It is sad, and I can’t begin to imagine what could happen!

    Well, when the Abu-Ghraib scandal broke in the US, G. W Bush himself condemned the acts and promised to lawfully punish the wrong doers.
    Anyone thinks something like that is gonna happen in kuwait?
    I mean it is supposedly a semi-democracy eh?

    anonymous,
    Yep is it sort of a democracy. Currently all parliament members have condemned the acts by the state police. It is now time for the government to respond. Issues such as these set the standard and the future of freedom (however much we have from it).

    I hate to see such things !! everyone is supposed to say whats in their mind .. and think the way they like .. for sure there should be limits to everything or its gonna be a such a messy world .. but terrorizing people like this is just not acceptable!!

    Navy Girl,
    It is totally unacceptable!
