From a reader:
I’m just wondering- there have been something like 12 missiles fired at Kuwait. I believe that the US military staging areas are north of Kuwait City a sizeable distance. Since some of those missiles are landing on Kuwait City itself, shouldn’t we consider that Iraq has declared war on Kuwait? No one seems to have mentioned this possibility, and seems to take it for granted that Kuwait City is being bombed by Iraq. And, considering then that Iraq (a.k.a. Saddam) has declared war on Kuwait, it seems to me that provides further justification for this war.
