Yet another new parliament? Sigh.

Incase you've been under a rock lately, there have been major political upheaval  in Kuwait over the past few weeks. It smells like the parliament is about to be desolved - again.  Kuwait has so much POTENTIAL and OMG - so much wasted energy.

I'm not meddling, mind you - all this stuff below is from the internet.

It relates to an  incident involving police and a a group of MPs and others at a Kuwaiti Member of Parliament's  (Jamaan Al-Harbash's) diwaniya  last week. Earlier this month, pandamonium broke out at another diwaniya.   Again, if you haven't heard about this, you're missing some great WWF action.  I thought this kind of stuff only happened in say China or Korea (where lawmakers publicly beat the crap out of each other).

Oh my, it's gettin kinda jungly out here.  Kuwaiti-on-Kuwaiti violence:  Can't we all just get along?  Ever heard the adage:  United we stand, divided we fall?
