2009 in Review

4 Jan 2010  5 Comments

From Obama, to MJ, to Dubai, to Swine Flu, to Juwaihel, to Kuwait’s Parliament to the iPhone vs Everyone battle, to the Mishref Sewage plant disaster. Events that directly affected us as Kuwaiti’s in 2009, feel free to add yours.

History is made in the USA with the inauguration of the first black president, for the first time in a while, many Americans are optimistic. Is it too much pressure on one person to heal the world? Check the rest of the entry below.

After Mad Cows disease, Bird Flu, etc. Swine Flu creates panic and horror around the world for billions of people. Was it blown out of proportion?

The near demise of Dubai, a horror story in its own. It may have been barely saved, but will this be a lesson, or will they continue to push the envelope in 2010?

The less ups, and more downs of the Kuwaiti Parliament, hopes and projects being shattered on a regular basis.

Is he black or is he white? Michael Jackson left behind a legacy with his death in 2009.

Mohammed Al-Juwaihel’s antics taking sleaze to an all time low, did the Kuwaiti people really need someone so outspoken and sleazy to reunite the population?

The smartphone wars. iPhone taking on all comers. Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile to name a few, all taking large steps and closing the ever-so-small gap between each other. 2010 will continue to be a battle for phones.

elwehbi reminded us also of the Mishref sewage disaster.  So much money put into the project,  yet so much negligence.  So many people hurt yet few actually gained from it. The question is, at what price?

    Mishref Sewage Disaster!

    They basically shat (excuse my language but the pun is intended here) all over our heritage and livelihood. A true disgrace and no Kuwaiti should stay quiet about this tragedy.
