        the disposal of coalition forces during Operation Iraqi Freedom;

        risk by providing vital and unwavering assistance to the United States 
        and its coalition partners, including access to airports, port 
        facilities, and bases;
Whereas Kuwait has openly allowed itself to be named on the United States' list

        Saddam Hussein;

        extensively expanded bilateral relations;

        operated its forward-deployed command-and-control center for Operation 
        Iraqi Freedom;

        Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan; and

        support, the pre-positioning of military equipment, overflight rights,

        Kuwait, Bahrain, and Qatar have been full and active partners

        on September 11, 2001;
