In modern Pakistan, Ethnic groups are a measure of race more than the color of skin or eyebrow ridges. Some of the most prevalent ethnic groups in Pakistan are Punjabis (who are mixed), Pushtuns (who are majority Caucasians), Sindhis (who are mixed) and Baluch (who are majority Caucasians). Capoid groups include Brahui, while Hazara, Tajik and Uzbek groups are Mongoloids.

Why was Kuwait the target of invasion by Iraq?
The Iraqi government had long considered Kuwait a province of Iraq and its oil wealth could help to pay off the debts that Iraq had incurred from its Iran-Iraq War. Kuwait also had no means of resisting invasion. (Its army is tiny by comparison with Iraq's.) It's been suggested that when drawing up the borders for when Iraq became semi autonomous like the British Dominions, the boundary's commission pencil that drew the line, when scaled up, meant two miles that should of been part of Iraq, was in Kuwait. But Iraq didn't stop at that.

Asked in War and Military History, Gulf War, Kuwait
What were the effects on Kuwait after the Gulf War?
it made it into one of the best countries in the middle east (added 2/8/2009) It also changed the population of the country from a very high population of Palestinian, Jordanian and stateless (i.e. Palestinian, undocumented) of around 700K pre Aug 2nd 1990 to 30-35,000 in March 1991. This is largely because of support of a percentage of the Palestinian population for the Iraqi regime. The Kuwaitis resented the abuse of what was seen as their hospitality and support of the Palestinian cause and (rightly, in many cases) felt betrayed. This shifted the nationality dynamic between pre and post war Kuwait. Westerners were afforded a higher status due to their contribution to liberation, and Jordanian/Palestinian's were either deported or left voluntarily, the few remaining being relegated to a lower position on the social scale.
