Today I heard two fantastic quotes.

Vice President Biden, on returning to the US remarked:

…it’s great to be back to a place where a boom in housing construction is actually a good thing.

Without wishing to engage in too much hyperbole, I think that the statistic that David Pollock briefly mentioned in a recent Washington Institute for Near East Policy podcast is simply amazing. Unbelievable at first, after a minute’s searching I corroborated the statistic. It comes from US Department of State website, no less.

…for most of this decade 60% of the territory of Kuwait was devoted to the United States military.
