The injustice and aggression that the State of Kuwait was subjected to was detrimental to its land and its people, and the theft and plundering of its buildings and facilities will remain in the memory of generations so that they can take lessons and sermons from it and remember with them the heroics and glories it has recorded and the unique national unity it has witnessed and the rare cohesion between the people and their leadership, which is what the people of Kuwait have built upon. Kuwait throughout their history.
