I thought the Saudi-led move against Qatar, which houses CENTCOM's forward deployed base and other key military facilities, was one of the most alarming pieces of news I've seen cross my desk in a while. Trump apparently thinks it's a victory.

Who's right? I guess we'll see.

We don't need to be there. The Romans and Persians knew that the Arabs were a bunch of faithless goons that had to be bought off from time to time, and the Qataris (there is a reason the place is pronouced "gutter") have been dicking around while all the while taking US money.

Like the movie goes "A little people, petty and cruel".
