Kuwaitis close shop

According to the AFP: The Kuwaiti embassy in Beirut was evacuated on Thursday after an anonymous threat of a rocket attack, the latest scare in Lebanon as foreign governments act on security amid mounting political and sectarian tensions.

"An unknown man called me and said 'I'm going to fire two rockets at the embassy and destroy it over your heads', then he hung up," embassy charge d'affaires Tareq al-Hamad told AFP. "He didn't give the motive for his threats."

Could it be the country's:
support for the US in its invasion of Iraq;
role in the murder of Hizbollah military leader;
backing for the M14 cabal that rule Lebanon;
or, all of the above?
