NPR's Eric Westervelt reports on U.S. and Asian expatriates who are planning to leave Kuwait as war with Iraq grows more likely. Americans will have little trouble returning to their homeland in case of an emergency, but for hundreds of thousands of southeast Asian service sector workers in Kuwait, it may not be as easy.
