Kuwait’s Cabinet Resigns

Like clockwork, another Arab country’s cabinet resigns. From Reuters:

Kuwait’s cabinet resigned as expected Thursday to avoid a grilling by parliament of three ministers, all members of the ruling al-Sabah family, amid calls for political and economic reform…

The resignation could be linked to sectarian tension in the Gulf region, where Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries have backed Bahrain’s Sunni Muslim monarchy in a crackdown on democracy protesters who are mainly Shi’ite Muslims.
