Kuwaiti Diwaniya
Tuesday, March 4, 2003; 1:44 PM

The diwaniya is a Persian Gulf tradition in which men gather weekly in a private home to discuss issues ranging from politics to sports. Since the buildup of American troops in the Gulf, the diwaniyas in Kuwait have focused on the possible war in Iraq. Although most Kuwaitis favor a U.S. invasion of Iraq, many are skeptical of America's intentions in the Middle East.

Interviews:
Haitham Ashkanani and Talal Al-Faqan, a Kuwaiti student at Saint Martin's College in Lacey, Wash. Al-Faqan returned to Kuwait to renew his student visa.

washingtonpost.com video journalist Travis Fox will be live online from Kuwait, Wednesday, March 5 at 2 p.m. ET
