On January 14, 1991, Asrar Al-Qabandi was murdered. She was shot five times — four bullets to her chest and the fifth bullet between her eyes, and her head sliced in two by an axe as her body dumped in front of her family’s home by the Iraqi’s. This was the fate of one of the braveset women of Kuwait… of the world. She saved hundreds of Kuwaiti’s during the Gulf War, and came back to Kuwait to save more lives even though she knew the Iraqi’s had found out what she had done. This woman has been dead exactly 19 years. And this is the least we can do in saluting the woman who had died saving lives.
Some of her other victories include smuggling weapons from Basra to Kuwait, money and more weapons from Saudi Arabia, single-handedly destroying the monitored telephones and communications set up by the Iraqis, providing targeted Kuwaitis with new ID’s to protect them from harm, providing foreign families with food and money, and taking care of 65 foreign hostages, risking a guaranteed execution.
Short film about the martyrs of Kuwait and significant moments in our country’s history. Aired on Al Watan TV, Al Rai TV and in all Cinescape movie theaters for the August 2nd memorial day.

Never confuse Samuel L. Jackson with any other black dude. Especially not with Laurence Fishburne.
Interesting fact: Did you know that Samuel L. Jackson is richer than Angelina Jolie, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Robin Williams, Sandra Bullock, Al Pacino, AND Bin Stiller? I didn’t. But I’m surprised wonder, coz he’s so awesome! [source].
Now the funny bit about this video is the announcer didn’t mistake the two actors, he was actually referring to SLJ’s Captain America Superbowl commercial. But good for him for keeping quite and graciously accepting the rant and verbal spanking. Here’s what the announcer had to say later (sincere and nobel):
