Interesting old situation in Qatar. As our man in the Middle East, @dubai_phil has reported, a number of nations have turned their back on Qatar, citing financing of terrorism as the reason for their blockade. All flights from those nations were cancelled. There’s a sort of blockade going on. The Iranians are actually doing a modern day Berlin airlift to keep the nation afloat.
Before we guffaw at the notion of Saudi Arabia being affronted that _other _nations finance terrorism, I reckon there are some wider questions to consider.
What exactly has Qatar done to earn this censure?
Is this a result of Russian intrigue? (almost everything is these days)
