That's honestly really offensive to us Americans...I admit that we can be ignorant and offensive at times but honestly. Give us some credit. If Americans were all stupid then we wouldn't have become one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world. Bahrain is one of those countries in the Middle East that has a ton of oil but is at high risk for war. I imagine that it's close enough to Syria and Israel to be affected negatively, and Kuwait is closer to it. What I find surprising is that all these tiny little countries with barely anything in them (sorry kalbahamut) have such a strong United States presence.
You'd think that countries like the UK, Spain, Italy, Japan, South Korea wouldn't need US aid because they are advanced and generally have a lot of power. Not to mention, recently they have been at peace with very few battles fought...although technically the Korean War is still going on. Belgium, for instance, is unlikely to be attacked by any countries.
