Not So Friendly Anymore: Out-Of-Control Brawl Erupts During Kuwait-Lebanon Soccer Match
July 4 is the most American of holidays - celebrating our forefathers' declaration that they would bow to no one, that they would not tolerate an oppressive regime, that they could strike out on their own. That anyone should have that opportunity to strike out on their own. America was far from perfect then. It remains so. But there's some powerful stuff in that declaration. It's worth celebrating.
And so as we celebrate that well-intentioned, often-brilliant, but never-perfect union, maybe it's fitting that as our postings on this July 4 come to a close, we bring you one about...fighting in the Middle East. Of course, this fighting didn't involve America (thankfully), and rather than actual enemy factions, was just a couple national soccer teams throwing punches (thankfully).
Kuwait dominated Lebanon in a friendly on Saturday in Beirut, scoring six times. As often happens when a match is particularly frustrating for one side, tempers flared. As does not often happen, tempers flared to the point where the security forces who were forced to separate the two sides actually had to fire gunshots into the air to restore order. Watch here:
Some "friendly." Not much left to add but enjoy those fireworks, and...yeah.
