I think Kuwaiti people will be wealthy no matter where they live. Don't judge the looks of their homes by western standards. Here are some typical single-family dwellings.

One cannot freeze the looming changes to preserve an illusion of stability.

The meaning is, how many pro-western right leaning individuals do you know of that would leave the west to go fight against the west in such a radical group as ISIS? Amongst other things ISIS has demonstrated that it is anti-west and anti Christian. It has a lot in common, in those aspects, with the radical progressive, atheist left in this country. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" so to speak. I don't know of many "bible-thumping, right-wing, fundies" as you call them that would go and join ISIS, a group that beheads Americans and Christians amongst others. The man came from wealthy to-do roots with a good educational background. Perhaps he became Muslim in college and even was radicalized there, which wouldn't surprise me. Today's colleges/universities are as much "institutions of higher brainwashing" as they are institutions of higher learning. Anyway, I admitted that I may be wrong and I don't expect the media to reveal his or his family's political leanings especially if they do track left of center. Anyway, that is my take, take it or leave it.....
LOL...! a radical lefty marxist atheist who hates America joined ISIS. Someone listens to a little too much right-wing talk radio, me thinks.

Obama's a Muslim communist born in Kenya and white Christians are the most singled out and persecuted ethnoreligious group in the U.S., too, right?

Yeah like socialist "Brooklyn Bernie" and Democrats boycotting Netanyahu's speech to congress because it "disrespects" the president???? But it is okay for the "Dictator and Chief" to disrespect anyone he chooses?

Bernie Sanders Is The First Senator To Boycott Netanyahu's Speech To Congress

It's a myth that our stability depends on that of ANY of those countries doing anything one way or the other, whether supporting Qaddafi or overthrowing him, etc. That's why Brookings and the Chicago Council and CFR get paid so much by Raytheon and General Dynamics and Lockheed to make you think that.

I was under the impression that congress was supposed to represent the Americans who voted for it, not the Israelis who pay them off to serve their interests.
