"Kuwait was not used as a means to undermine any socialist revolution"

not that i regard any of iraq's post-1958 formations as necessarily 
socialist, it seems likely that kuwait has been a base for the US/UK to interfere in 
iraqi affairs--"desert shield" most memorably.  i wonder if the anti-qassem coup 
d'etat was in any way launched from the US "embassy" i.e., CIA station in 
kuwait city.

not sure if taiwan is used the same way; IIRC, historically burma, thailand, 
&c have been more fruitful origins for anti-chinese agitation.
