Qatar is a serious Crisis

Similar to the Saudi invasion of Bahrain during the Arab Spring. The GCC (KSA and UAE mainly) are inching closer to invading Qatar. Reading Gulf papers, I have never before seen the kind of things that are going on.

It is also important for Americans and.those of us on the left to understand while the Qatari's are no angels, the Saudis beef with Qatar is essentially that they refuse to actively support the dictator Sisi in Egypt and refuse to kill AL Jazeera.

Trump is supporting his new BFF the Saudis in all of this nonsense despite the fact our main regional military base is in Qatar. It will also come as little shock that the Russians will benefit heavily strategically and monetrarity from the chaos. Europe will become more dependent on Russian NG. Plus, chaos will drive energy prices north.

I would put the odds at 50/50 the GCC will invade Qatar.
