Kuwait: OPED: America's Never-Ending Prohibition

Wed, 13 Aug 2008 07:00:00 GMT

Kuwait Times, 13 Aug 2008 - America's alcohol prohibition lasted 13 years, filled the country's prisons, inspired contempt for the law among millions, bred corruption and produced Al Capone.

Kuwait: Kuwait Forces Irate Over US Criminals

Mon, 11 Jun 2007 07:00:00 GMT

Kuwait Times, 11 Jun 2007 - KUWAIT: Kuwait security forces are irate with the favoritism American expatriates caught violating the laws of Kuwait receive. According to an article in the local Arabic daily, Al-Qabas, unnamed sources claim that Americans arrested for alcohol and drug-related crimes are receiving special treatment. When policemen or detectives arrest certain criminals or gang members, they publish the piece of news in daily newspapers in addition to the pictures of arrested men or women and police men will be praised for that after publishing all details about the arrested persons. But the case is totally different when an American expatriate is arrested. He will be treated well, policemen apologize for arresting him and the American criminal will be allowed to call his embassy in order to ask for a lawyer in which the lawyer will exert great efforts to prove that police men were the ones who committed a mistake, not the American expatriate, reports Al-Qabas citing unnamed security sources.

Ireland: Alcohol Finds Kuwait's Back Door

Tue, 08 Sep 1998 07:00:00 GMT

The Examiner, 8 Sep 1998 - The brewers of Harp lager used to run a memorable ad showing an Irish exile sweating under a desert sun somewhere in the Arabian gulf, dreaming of a certain Sally O'Brien and a cool pint. Great ad, but nothing to do with reality, of course. Just in case anybody believes you can't get a drink in Muslim countries, where alcohol is banned, the latest reports from Kuwait are enlightening. Some $40 million was spent there on banned alcohol between 1992 and 1997.
