Safely assume that the AZ crime(s) are also crimes in Kuwait and that there is overwhelming evidence of guilt (including a confession).

Hello.

It is almost certain that they will not. Not only has Kuwait has not signed on to an extradition treaty with the United States, so they are not in any way obligated to return a fugitive, but the Kuwaiti Constitution actually prohibits the extradition of a Kuwaiti citizen to another country. So even if the Kuwaiti government were inclined to extradite a fugitive when they are not required to do so by treaty, they are actively prohibited by their own Constitution to do so. They have reiterated this position as recently as a couple of months ago, so it is unlikely to change:

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
