Ok let's start over again. My brother's previous post has created quite a racket, especially with a certain ill-informed "anonymous" user. Why use such a colorful limited vocabulary to express oneself?
I have a question for all the people out there, well...not all but for those of you who actually read my blog (my thanks to all of you, I really appreciate it!). My question is: WHY do people always jump and argue or debate issues with NO legit information to back them up?
It's human nature to argue or rather, to question. Actually, I like that. But when a person argues, they have to argue using "legal" sources, instead of depending on what "my friend" or "my parents" said. Or even on what the MEDIA state. Don't believe everything you see at the media.
Debate is a beautiful thing, I've participated in debate for a very short while once upon a time. And I LOVED it. Yet it's tougher than anyone can imagine, you really have to be well-informed and (this is for some people I know) well-EDUCATED. Up till this day I still debate with people. I still question people with an OPEN mind, educating myself on things I have never learned about.
Now back to the previous post: Kuwait has been known as a philanthropic country, where we dish out billions of dollars yearly to the unfortunate. We have always put others first and foremost before ourselves. That tells much about the Kuwaiti psyche. We MAY be racist, lazy and [add your rant here.]. But we, as many Arabs are, are a very honorable society who are "there" when someone needs us. The country itself is in need of a major infrastructure overhaul, we have a huge chunk of residential areas that still don't have the basic proper utilities. Ever asked WHY? It's because we always put our own needs aside when a disaster strikes. When war breaks out, we immediately jump to helping the war ravaged citizens of [insert country here].
And lastly I'd like to add, there are some issues that can never be resolved except by the will of God. Such as the Palestinian issue. We have fought that war for centuries. It USED to be a religious war, remember the Crusades? But now it's purely a political issue, in which the majority of the countries have decided that it's not worth the effort anymore. Instead, we decided to help the millions that have been suffering from that endless war. And I meant "we" not as a single nation, but as the world.
I've said my piece. Think before you comment.
