Third Government Set To Fall In A Week: Kuwait Cabinet Expected To Resign On Thursday "Over Questioning"

Tyler Durden's picture

Following the fall of the Portuguese and Canadian governments (and don't get us started on Belgium), here comes the latest entrant to the anarchy club. Kuwait's cabinet is expected to resign on Thursday after lawmakers asked to question three ministers, parliamentary sources said on Wednesday. More from Reuters: "The sources said that the cabinet was set to submit its resignation after lawmakers asked to question three ministers who are ruling family members, including the oil exporter's energy minister, who is also the information minister." After all what better way to avoid answering questions in a bona fide "democracy" than to take down the entire government. But this too is bullish: "Ministerial resignations are frequent in Kuwait, which has the most outspoken parliament in the Gulf Arab region." In other words it was priced on. And furthermore, with a globalized corporatocracy long in charge of the world, receiving its lifeblood of endless money and cheap credit, who needs governments anyway.

So is this how they plan on running their World Governance? Having revolving door politicos that have no real responsibility as they can just walk away?

It’s coming; the crack up.

And that would be different how?

The odd thing is that I do not have a rebuttal for your comment. There's nothing that i could say to lessen the blow of reality hitting me in the forehead. Maybe if I facepalm first then I won't feel the impact as tramatically.


Seriously though, at least now it's becoming obviously clear to the world that Government's everywhere are either filled with unbelievably incompetent people, or that the NWO is real. Either way, we're screwed.

Tyler manages to say exactly what I would say if I had an advanced degree in Realistic Sarcasm. I think I'm addicted to ZH because the sarcanol flows faster here than the BS pours out of our 'leaders' pieholes.

It would be nice if Tyler's premise would be only sarcastic ... unfortunatelly reality tells that there are some pretty serious experiments with so called "direct democracy" where taxpeyers and citizens would have online access to comunity decision making systems, law/budget procedures and regulations - making and adopting those along the way.
Of course, system will allow citizens to participate to the level not higher than dealing with basic human needs while all other issues (protection, finance, general laws, energy flows, commodities etc) would be "protected" for "higher level admins".
If you can imagine something like facebook participation and algorithms acting as laws/ordinances on low levels of society.

Scary isn't it? But logical since corporations actually don't need so many parties, bribing, corupt bastard politicians on all levels etc which is increasing total system cost for them.
They only need us to exist, buy, eat and shit!

Who are these mysterious "citizens" of which you speak? All I see are captives with guns to their heads. (some of which are holding the gun to their own heads!)

And if Kuwait wasn't enough, son of Daiichi is smoking. But I'm sure this is nothing, and smoke in the wind. You know..just like at Daiichi. Because TEPCO has assured everyone.


Smoke briefly detected at Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant

Smoke Briefly Detected At Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant

TOKYO (Kyodo)--Smoke was temporarily seen at the No. 1 reactor of the Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant, but it soon disappeared, its operator said Wednesday.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said smoke was detected at around 5:56 p.m. from a power distribution panel on the first floor of the turbine building at the reactor. The company, known as TEPCO, said it made a call to a local fire department.

The announcement came at a time when efforts are under way to contain the nuclear crisis at the radiation-leaking Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, hit by the devastating March 11 earthquake and ensuing tsunami.

The Fukushima Daini plant is located about 10 kilometers from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi plant, and its four reactors have been stable in so-called ''cold shutdown'' after suspending operations following the quake.

"Smoke was temporarily seen....but it soon disappeared, its operator said...."


Smoke disappeared.  As in floatedaway, dissipated, wafted off on a cool, gentle, fresh spring breeze, accompanied by butterflies, flower petals and rainbow shitting unicorns.  Correction, miniature winged rainbow colored skittle shitting unicorns..

But what the fuck caused the smoke in the electrical panel which handles the cooling unit?  Was it fucking fixed?

Maybe the new President of TEPCO'll go off to join his buddy in the rubber padded Karaoke bar in the sky, too.

Fucking amazing.
Who writes this crap?
Talk about dismissive redirection!  Bernays would give this a failing grade.  Even the gerbil up my butt can see through this bloody rot.

Shame the Fed hasn't folded.. and how come they get to make everyone wait to give the documents that the courts said they had to give and still haven't?

Now if that was you or me, we would be in jail for contempt of court

Lifeblood? Let's just say that the lifeblood heatmap would not be centered around New York, London and Tokyo. Quite the opposite.

""I can't think of anything more derogatory than 'Belgian'."

You probably also think the stuff you drink in your pub qualifies as beer . And the stuff you eat is gourmet I guess . Belgium has the richest diversity in high quality beers and more 3 star giude Michelin restaurants per capita than France dipshit

I was there last summer and what a toilet bowl. Just wow.

And if it's indicative of future U.S., just wow.

Overpriced, polluted toilet.

No offense to our British Friends. Many of the people were pleasant enough (they knew how badly they were being screwed, too).

Jean Lazard de Rotschild's picture

Ofcourse we have, the eurocrats and frenchspeaking elites have to eat somewhere. As for the beers you are quite right. However I think that belgium should be split because the current construction is undemocratic. Just my 2 cents.

Gigliola Cinquetti's picture

The current construction is a federal state , like Switzerland . The main problem is the ongoing money flow from the productive north (Flanders) to the more easy going south .Spliiting is a problem because the Brussels region (majority French speaking) is completely geographically surrounded by Flanders (dutch speaking) . You could turn Brussels maybe into a sort of EU capital territory .

Jean Lazard de Rotschild's picture

We don´t have to split the country per se. As long as you seperate the money, you will gain efficiencies. But unfortunately at the current rate of change nothing will happen really and a split of the country would be the only way out. Not only brussels would be a problem. But also the national debt.

"Not only brussels would be a problem. But also the national debt."

Good point !!!

All true -- plus ! --- we have the best coffee and chocolate on the continent as well.

who needs governments anyway

We don't need no stinkin' government!! We have regional assemblies for that crap anyway. Maybe the USA should take note of this and have a rethink about DC.

Gigliola Cinquetti's picture

Don't even start me on food . White asparagus a la flamande  . Witlof .

"We don't need no stinkin' government!! "

The country is doing fine without one . I am all for keeping it that way . We are by nature suspicious of every government , even one of our own choice . That's the result of centuries of foreign occupation

Wasn't going to mention the food -- it's probably the best kept secret of all, even from many ZHers..

I'm really finding the geography maps in the news quite informative. For years I've been hearing about these places and had no real idea where they were. And some places like Oman, I had no idea even existed. I wish them all freedom, in whatever form that means to them.

As a Canadian, I feel it important to separate the conditions in Canada from the rest of the world where governments have been overthrown or have fallen.

Firstly of all, the Canadian population is suffering from disinterest and boredom rather than any radical sense of injustice. Voter turnout at elections has been falling for decades. At the current rate we will reach the state where they will call an election and nobody will come.

Secondly, although there are segments of the population living in poverty and child poverty is a growing problem, the primary preoccupation is the price of a Big Mac relative to its shrinking size - not to be confused with the expanding size of the Big Mac eaters. Canada is very much an affluent society. Austerity here seems to be 4 lattes a week instead of 5.

Thirdly, Canadian politicians appear to spend all their time in partisan bickering. Put representatives of three of the parties together in a discussion as CTV news regularly does and you will be amazed at how vacuous 15 minutes can be. One of the gravest current scandals the government faces is that a junior minister inserted the word "not" in front of the word "approved" on a funding recommendation document (as one would assume would be a minister's prerogative and responsibility) and then initially denied it.

If any Canadian dies as a result of their government’s actions it will be through total boredom rather than bullets or bombs. However, one could argue that our government, in subjecting its citizens to listening to Question Period in the House of Commons, practices torture.
