KUWAIT: The rhetoric between Iran, Gulf states and the international community has heated-up, as August temperatures swell. This is pushing Kuwait and its GCC(Gulf Cooperation Council) counterparts to set in place emergency plans to counteract the effects of a possible regional conflict. Kuwait political analyst Hajaj Bu Khathor stated, "The issue with Iran is not about uranium enrichment, it wants to control the region." He noted that Iran is pushing the nuclear issue as a tool in the process toward attai
ning their greater objective. Bu Khathor explained the issue is not only the responsibility of the GCC but of the international community which would suffer severe global economic downturns if Iran blocks the Strait of Hormuz.

Bu Khathor says that the blockade of the Strait of Hormuz will be a reality which we should deal prior to its occurrence, according to a proactive well-planned out strategy. However, he noted that the government has under-publicized preparations for such a crisis. "The reason for this is that they do not want people to panic.

Khathor compared the lack of open discussions on the state's current emergency planning to its lack of preparation and a downsizing of the problems it had with Iraq prior to the Gulf War. "We do not want to repeat what happened before." he said, referring to the Iraqi invasion when citizens were totally unprepared for the crisis.
