Nice, except…

After extolling the virtues of the Kyrgyzstan national anthem over Kuwait, the link you provide for it — is the link for the Kuwati national anthem. :(

I listened to it, and it is indeed awesome, but you may want to correct the link at some point if you have the chance.

If not, a link for Kyrgyzstan is here:

I feel we should invade Liechtenstein just for that.

That is not Kazakhstan’s anthem.

Just heard the Swedish National Anthem before a hockey game, and remembered these posts, and wanted to see your opinion on it. Was this the last installment?

“Unreasonably cheerful. Kuwait is a tiny little chunk of desert in the middle of the world constantly beset by war.”

Wait–what?

Kuwait? Kuwait???

“Apart from the Gulf War, we haven’t experienced large-scale armed conflict or serious internal unrest since 1920” Kuwait? “We were a nation of crazily affluent oil barons before it was cool” Kuwait? “Our per-capita GDP is around the twelfth highest in the world, and we provide our citizens with free healthcare, water, electricity, education, and guaranteed lifetime employment” Kuwait?

Kuwait–the very same Kuwait that’s among the richest countries in the world–is so constantly beset by war and tragedy and death that it needs a maudlin, depressive national anthem?

…if you say so, dude
