It is amazing that the Republican Congress and other Republican Politicians are still standing behind Donald Trump when in fact, everything Trump is doing is damaging to America and gives Vladimir Putin What he want. For the longest time Putin unsuccessfully tried to stop Qatar from Housing America’s Largest Military Base in the Middle East, but Putin has finally succeeded via his Puppet, Donald Trump.

 

Subsequent to Donald Trump’s Middle East Trip, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates [UAE] and Yemen not only broke Diplomatic Ties with Qatar, but also cut off Land, Air and Sea to and from Qatar.

 

[NYT] “ EgyptSaudi Arabia and three other Arab countries severed all ties with Qatar early Monday, in a renewal of a four-year effort to isolate it and in a sign of a new boldness after a visit to the region by President Trump.

 

In an abrupt and surprising move, the five Arab states not only suspended diplomatic relations, as they have in the past, but also cut off land, air and sea travel to and from Qatar. All but Egypt, which has many thousands of people working there, ordered their citizens to leave the country.

 

Qatar, like other monarchies in the Persian Gulf, is a close ally of Washington, and it hosts a major American military base that commands the United States-led air campaign against the Islamic State.

 

As such, the feud among regional allies threatens to stress the operations of the American-led coalition and complicate efforts in the region to confront Iran — but could also be a heavy blow to Tehran’s regional ambitions, if Qatar is forced to sever ties.

 

Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson offered to broker the impasse on Monday in the hope of preserving the Trump administration’s efforts to create broad coalitions against Iran and terrorist groups in the Middle East.

 

“We certainly would encourage the parties to sit down together and address these differences,” Mr. Tillerson said.

 

The severing of all connections by Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen created an immediate crisis for Qatar. Qatari diplomats were given 48 hours to leave their posts in Bahrain, while Qatari citizens were allotted two weeks to depart Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.”
