KUWAIT: American bases in the Arabian Gulf have been put on high alert in anticipation of any kind of fallout to the security deterioration in Syria and Iraq, a local daily reported yesterday quoting a “senior military official” familiar with the subject. The senior Kuwaiti official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to disclose the information to the press. He made these remarks to a local daily without providing any further details on the topic. (link)
This kind of news always makes contractors nervous. As an American working on one of those bases I hope this isn't something that will cause us to be under lock down. That's one of the bad things of working on the base, if there is a problem then no one can leave until the matter is solved, the most time I've spent was a couple hours but that feeling of not being able to get to your family sucks.
