    Barbara Walters did a story on gender roles in Kuwait several years before
    the Gulf War. She noted then that women customarily walked about 10 feet
    behind their husbands.

    She returned to Kuwait recently and observed that the men now walked
    several yards behind their wives.

    Ms. Walters approached one of the women and said, "This is marvelous.
    Can you tell me and the free world just what enabled women here to
    achieve this marvelous reversal of roles?"


    "Land mines," said the Kuwaiti woman.
