The video you see shows the news item that I received immediately after the strong dust-storm that hit Kuwait City a few hours earlier. The irony is that while this kind of action was taking place somewhere in the country, mother nature disapproved. The interesting part by nature was that showers of rain followed the storm and the political actions, and everything was back to normal and the weather became nice and clear later.

It was very scary! I felt like our house was being pulled from up and kept looking at the ceiling expecting it to be lifted any minute! The storm took less than 3 or 4 minutes, and then a heavy shower of rain followed that for few minutes. At that point,the call for maghreb (dusk)prayers started, which was heard loud from the mosque opposite to my home. It was a strange experience that happened to us, people in Kuwait City.
The irony is that in the middle of all this the local news I got on my cellphone stated that the interior special forces managed to separate a large group of citizens (all men)near a diwaniya in Asubahia area who were trying to run an illegal pre election meeting!
