This is not only interesting, but perplexing, and unbelievable!

Three ministries involved in the ban? Wow! A D-SLR is now more dangerous than prostitution rings, or the CIA satellites?

Getting a permit to take a picture is now harder than getting a permit to build a nuclear reactor!!

If someone needs a permit then he or she will have to go through the three ministries to get a permit to take a picture of a duck playing in a pond?

Knowing that it takes months to get through Kuwait's ministries red tape, the duck would be gone by then, I would guess!

And with three ministries involved, one needs to apply no less than NINE months in advance to get a permit to take a picture!!!

We must then make the duck sign a contract that it will be there, in the pond, exactly 9 months from now for the photo opportunity.

Canon will have an idiot setting on their cameras, automatically uploads an application to the appropriate authority.
