I didn't understand all their rationale either but as far as Saudi is concerned, I would think it might have something to do with it being right next door and it was the staging area for troops to take their country back during Desert Storm.
What he says, and what he bribes.

Kuwait's a shit hole
Have you ever been there?
Yes, For Desert Storm and 4 times since. ....Have you?
and you mean to tell me you enjoyed this nation
I never said I enjoyed it, but.... of all the Muslin nations I've been in, and I'be been in quite a few, it's where I felt safest.
It probably is the safest. But I still do not feel safe visiting any Muslim nation. Especially when there have been cases of rape victims being imprisoned for being raped. I hesitate to trust any countries with laws discriminating against homosexuals as well
I feel safer in Kuwait than I do in most of the major Eastern Cities I've been to. (That should not be taken to mean I enjoy being there)
I've also been around the worst sort of muslims imaginable in a close environment.
