Kuwait forces disperse protesters with stun grenades

Source: The Guardian

Security forces used stun grenades to disperse hundreds of opposition activists trying to stage a march in Kuwait on Sunday and made several arrests.

Protest marches have grown more frequent in the US-allied oil producer since the opposition boycotted a parliamentary election on 1 December over changes to voting laws that they saw as an attempt to favour pro-government candidates.

Witnesses said between 200 and 300 people had barely gathered in an affluent suburb of Kuwait City late on Sunday when security forces ordered them to disperse because their rally was not licensed.

One witness said that when the men and women moved to the middle of the road and began chanting, security forces attacked them with smoke bombs and stun grenades.

1. And this is the "democracy" that America fought to defend?

From that evil, demonic Saddam Hussein. Who also was once a "friend of America".

I'm having trouble keeping up with who the REAL bad guys are.
