Nothing But Respect Over Here

Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

To all our Kuwaiti friends: Not trying to patronize in anyways, but this is more of self criticism...
The Constitutional Court of Kuwait revoked yesterday a 1979 Princely decree banning public gatherings and demonstrations (aka Emergency Law in Egypt).
Now, the Kuwaiti state is around 45 years old, while the Egyptian (as our beloved flag-bearing, fascist media pundits like to remind us all the time) is 7000 years old. If you put it in historical context, Kuwait is light years ahead of us when it comes to democracy, and respect to the rule of law.
And, it is a monarchy!!
Really, change the anthem to God save the President already!!

Moved on!

It's about friggin time we learnt something from that. The Government kept saying "It's a bitter medicine, but we have to accept that because of the circumstances.."

God, when will anybody topple that mental institution up there..
