The Qataris, and their ruling al-Thani family, are slavers, narcotics traffickers, and financiers of international terrorism. They also happen to be Americas closest ally under Obama.
When analyzing the foreign policy interventions of the Obama administration with respect to the Middle East, it is hard to reconcile their respective approaches Libya (2011) and Iraq (2014).
In 2011, Obama justified the military action to remove Muammar Gaddafi on the basis of anticipated genocide by the Gaddafi regime. Speaking at the National Defense University on March 28, 2011, Obama explained I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action. In October of that year, Gaddafi was discovered by Libyan rebels, many whom were Islamists linked to al Qaeda, sodomized, and summarily executed. It is worth recalling that Gaddafi had been, since shortly after 9/11/2001, effectively an American ally, if an imperfect one, in the war on terror.
Yet following the fall of Mosul to ISIS in June 2014, and the subsequent exposure by the press of their horrific war crimes, the Obama administration acted strangely inert. The execution of defenseless Iraqi soldiers shocked the world, and ISIS (now known as the Islamic State, or IS) made no effort to hide their crimes: indeed, they proudly advertise them on YouTube. Despite the visual evidence of systematic war crimes and mass murder, Obama announced that he would not provide air support for the Iraqi Army. Under the supervision of the Obama administration, Iraq has gone from relatively stable following the 2007 surge, to being occupied in large part by a genocidal army that targets Christians, Shiites, and Muslims.
The most obvious way to explain this is through the lens of Americas closest ally these days, the tiny Middle Eastern peninsula in the Persian Gulf: Qatar.

a) Weakens America/AmericansI have yet to have anyone raise a single substantive counter example in several years of posting this.
b) Distances America's allies
c) Strengthens America's enemies
d) Serves Islam
e) Harms Israel
Or some combination of the above.
Those who support Clown Prince nobama are self-loathing and traitors to America.

Birds of a feather...

Well, I guess that explains why the Qataris were telling San Fran Nan the other day that Hamas is a “humanitarian” organization - takes one to know one, right? [/s]
Would it really had been that much worse if Saddam got the entire Middle East?
Better to have Hussein in Iraq than Hussein in the White House.
"We moved our base camp last night and were now positioned literally
within feet of the river. Have been sitting here watching the border
patrol patrolling in their riverboats all night and all morning..."

When Gaddafi realized we would go after those who harm us he “put away his toys” and “renounced terrorism.”
When Obama took office it quickly became clear we would take no action against any offense so he acte up, again.
Just how did Gaddafi “act up?”
I think the name of that country should be spelled to reflect the way it is actually pronounced — Gutter.
Now you know the millions came from.
Qatar bought themselves a Kenyan Sunni Muslim !
“EVERYTHING obama does either: “
True, but the situation with Cutter didn’t start with Obama...it goes back to when the Saudis kicked us out, I think.
What else explains the increasing hostility of Turkey, and why else did Kerry run to the Turks and al-Thanis, this past week?
Imagine how much "innocent" so-called "Palestinian" civilian life would have been saved, these past two weeks, if this administration had agreed to sell bunker busters to the Israelis?
This will eventually be looked back upon with infamy, because it is very possible we are being gradually drawn into a world war, one very much not what many of us would have imagined possible; one oddly similar to the past two world wars, not Cold at all, and on a scale as large as WW II was above WW I.
Those donations need to be tracked.

That's not a valid spelling. It's not pronouncable.
It's either Quatar, Cut-R, Kuttar...or maybe Guitar.
Haha, I ALWAYS call it that. We’re in the Qatar. They’re the Qatarsnipes. Dragged through the Qatar.
Couldn’t we take out Guitar with just one nuke?
Would anybody care?
