From the above linked article:
In a brief statement, the Kuwaiti Interior Ministry condemned the attack and identified the assailants as Anas al-Kandari, born in 1981, and Jassem al-Hajiri, born in 1976. It said both were Kuwaiti civilians. An Interior Ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity, described the two men as fundamentalist Muslims. More than 30 of their friends and relatives were detained for questioning, he said.

I'm surprised the Marines had ammo during training. I'm glad they did, but it seems strange.z

After Beirut I don't think you will ever find a Marine in the Mideast without ammo.......If it was issued is a completely different story. I think all our prayers are with the men of the 11th MEU. and for a speedy recovery for the injured Marine. JerrY

They had no ammo. Sucks to be a warrior and they don't even give you the tools of your trade.
