    World
    Qatar Businessman to Beat Gulf Blockade by Airlifting 4,000 Cows
    Jack Moore,Newsweek 11 hours ago
    Pigs might fly, but for one Qatari businessman, so will cows. Entrepreneur Moutaz Al Khayyat will airlift a herd of four thousand to the Gulf state on around 60 flights to get around a regional blockade in place because of an ongoing row with Sunni states.


    On June 5, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain cut diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting extremist groups, such as Palestinian militant group Hamas, and Shia regional power Iran. Qatar denies the accusations. The country shares a land border with Saudi Arabia, and more than half of its food comes from its neighbor, as well as most of its milk.


    Because of the threat the blockade poses to Qatar’s milk, Khayyat, chairman of Power International Holding, is taking matters into his own hands.


    “This is the time to work for Qatar,” he told Bloomberg of his plan to airlift the dairy aid package. Transporting the cows could take as many as 60 Qatar Airways flights from the U.S. and Australia, where he bought the cows.

    Khayyat said he had already made plans to bring the cows to Qatar by sea but the Gulf rift made him accelerate the move. His company’s production of fresh milk at a farm north of Doha will now begin at the end of June, as opposed to September as originally scheduled.


    Qatar, a tiny, oil-rich Gulf nation, is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, but the embargo by its neighbors and fellow Sunni states has forced it to look elsewhere for revenue streams and transport links.


    A Qatari government employee, speaking to Bloomberg in the capital, Doha, lauded the cow airlift as showing Qatar can finds ways to survive on its own. “It’s a message of defiance, that we don’t need others,” Umm Issa, 40, said. “Our government has made sure we have no shortages and we are grateful for that. We have no fear. No one will die of hunger.”


    Qatar’s allies, Iran and Turkey, have helped the country in actions and rhetoric. Both have delivered food supplies to the country and Turkey has agreed to deploy troops. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan slammed the isolation of Qatar as “inhumane” and “un-Islamic” on Monday. Iran has opened its airspace to Qatari flights after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and UAE all closed off inbound flights from the country.


    Iran is a Shia-led country that rivals Saudi Arabia for regional influence. Qatar’s close relationship with the Islamic Republic is one of the factors believed to be behind the rift.

    Re: cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar

    This just may be the beginning of the end for Erdogan. All those accusations he's accused Gulenists, Kurdish activists, free thinking journalists, Kemalist activists, people who say,
    "MAYBE.....you SHOULDN'T throw all your opposition in jail.....?" of being "terrorists" "blood sucking vampires", a virus, "worse than ISIS" all of that will be turned on him. expect either a military coup backed by the CIA, a military coup by cliques loyal to Gulen, America, or Russia, or economic sanctions will happen. As for the former, this time, like all other Turkish coups, it will be at night, when everyone is sleeping, that way there will be no resistance or loss of civilian life. And with much more troops. And it won't be a false flag. This way, Turkey can be Kemalist for the next few years under military rule, Erdogan will be executed or jailed for life, the economy will get bad under socialism, and then another center right politician will seize the stage for the upcoming years only to continue the cycle. As for Qatar, I wouldn't hesitate to believe Saudi accusations.

    Depressing but very eye opening.

    There is a cold war in the Middle East being fought between Saudi Arabia and Iran. This cold war is beyond sectarianism and the Sunni/Shia divide. Rather it's a contest for influence that's being played out within the domestic politics of weak Arab states. Arab states such as Egypt, Lebanon, Libya, and Syria have become battlefields in a larger arena of geopolitics. This video will explore why the Sunni vs Shia framework fails to explain current events, and why an inter-Sunni conflict is becoming more important in Middle Eastern politics. We'll discuss the United States role in the Middle East and its goals going forward.

    Interesting take on the subject.

    Saudi Arabia's spat with Qatar just a distraction to protect the ruling family, political analyst says

    Saudi Arabia's blockade of neighboring Qatar is a distraction as the Arab world's biggest economy shores up its monarchy and attempts to shift away from reliance on oil exports, according to one analyst.

    The country's royal family adjusted its order of secession earlier this week, paving the way for Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman to lead the House of Saud in the future.

    Salman promotes an "ambitious reform agenda designed to protect … and stabilize the Kingdom after the Arab Spring," Sanam Vakil, associate fellow at Chatham House's Middle East and North Africa Programme, told CNBC Thursday.

    Vakil suggested that Saudi Arabia's recent diplomatic spat with Qatar, in which the Kingdom and several other Arab countries accused their Gulf neighbor of supporting terrorist groups, was an attempted distraction from "the real challenge at home which is declining oil prices (and) a very young population in need of one thing, jobs, jobs, jobs."

    She said that the Kingdom's smoke and mirrors game was "about the future and protecting the internal stability of the House of Saud."

    At the age of 31, Crown Prince Salman is the world's youngest defense minister. Experience on the international stage, with Saudi Arabia actively involved in conflicts, will prime Salman in his future role as king as "The threat (to stability) is always internal," said Vakil.

    Vakil forecast that "We're going to see much more of a robust and ambitious Saudi Arabia building on a number of events that have already taken place over the past year," notably U.S. President Donald Trump visiting the Kingdom on his first overseas foreign trip in May.

    Vakil described Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030, its long term project to diversify the economy and move away from dependence on oil, as potentially changing the fabric of the country's deeply religious Sunni Muslim society. While attempting to generate 1.2 million jobs, "at the same time (the government is) offering the youth fun," she said. Vakil spoke of the building of cinemas and theme parks, which would "rock the boat a bit, challenging some of the conservative elements within the Kingdom and at the same time reducing subsidies."

    Vision 2030's acknowledgement of the pastoral care of citizens signifies a wider attempt by Gulf countries to "make themselves relevant, and of course to create vibrant societies while enshrining (their) very closed political systems," Vakil explained.

    Helima Croft, managing director at RBC Capital Markets, shared Vakil's view that deliverance on domestic economic reform and creating a swathe of new jobs for young people would be key to Salman's success.

    Croft spoke positively to CNBC's Worldwide Exchange Wednesday of the new leader in waiting. Referring to Salman's appointment to defense minister in 2015, Croft said that "He has defied all of the skeptics with his staying power." She also pointed out Salman's successes with the Vision 2030 project, one example being the expected IPO of Saudi Aramco, the world's largest oil company.

    "I think he's going to be leading Saudi Arabia for the next few decades at this point," she said.

    Re: cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar

    What I read from the news; Saudis and others demand Qatar do several things like cut ties to Iran, Muslim Brotherhood but also close the brances of al-Jazeerah. Do they afraid that al-Jazeerah writes too critical news about their own violations and their own citizens read the truth and start to demand better leaders?

    Yes the Sauds and the rest of the dictatorships in the middleeast don't like being criticised. You eventually realise that they are obedient servants of outside powers (globalists) and are more interested in looking after their own interests than their peoples.

    I think they know that the writing is on the wall. The status quo cant continue.

    Sub'han'Allah, i am each time amazed what is going on. The Turks for such a long time have been the greatest hypocrites on earth and Allah is FORCING them to choose and no longer hide under hypocrisy to have both ways. This also is slowly happening with to choose sides be pro-Russia OR pro-NATO, now also pro-Muslim brotherhood or anti-Muslim brotherhood.

    "But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars." Qur'an 29:3

    For sure all this time the Gulf states to Egypt and those countries near it to Pakistan and those Muslim countries near it have been sitting on their chair while seeing so many Muslims being killed in Sham. For them their chair is more holy than the blood of a Muslim, while the fact is that the blood of a Muslim is of MORE value than the ka'ba it self.
    Can I simply ask what the heck Turkey's decision to take part with Qatar has anything to do with hypocrisy? I am %100 sure you would blame Turkey with the same thing if we had taken part with American muppet Saudis. You are only producing anti-Turkist nonsense

    If you still do not see what is clear, then it doesn't matter what i even say or not say. It is all the same, you will not see. So that is why i leave it like that, for you something to wonder about.

    I am not for any war between Muslims and I know the real reason behind Turkey's backing up Qatar is the huge Qatari money lying in the Turkish banks but if there needs to be a support in this stupid conflict it must be for Qatar instead of Saudi Arabia from all Islamic points of views..

    Hence, you seek to to blame Turks, you meaninglessly use events..

    Re: cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar

    Saudi Arabia recently made a 110 Biillion Dollar weaponry purchase from America. What are the Saudi planning to do with crazy amount of weaponry? Are they planning to conquer the World? Can you do that against America with American guns? Dont think so. So what? Or are they gonna paint the middle east with blood? Saudi Arabia is already an American base in the southern Mid-East. A free Kurdistan will be another base in the north. They are laying all these weaponry in the mid-east for a future Great Mid-East war "Armageddon".

    Salaam

    Yes I dont know why Turkey is getting blamed, whatever criticisms youd like to make of Erdogan (plenty) he has at least tried to help Muslim causes (Palestinians, Syrian refugees) etc unlike the Sauds and co.

    Blockading Qatar, targeting Iran

    The Saudi-Israeli alliance is out of the closet.


    The almost simultaneous blockade of Qatar spearheaded by Saudi Arabia and joined by a few of its sidekick states and two pernicious, violent attacks on two symbolic sites in Tehran may have taken the world by surprise but the mad logic and the mischievous rhetoric of them are anything but surprising.

    The organic link between the regional, decidedly anti-Palestinian, ambitions of Israel and the sectarian designs of Saudi Arabia for the Arab and Muslim world at large have been known for quite some time now. The question is what has triggered that alliance between the Israeli settler colony and the Saudi garrison state suddenly to up the ante and come out with such ferocious intensity, throwing all pretences of "Arab brotherhood" or "Muslim unity" under the speeding Zionist bus.

    As reported by Al Jazeera, there is now an active lobbying putsch in Washington, DC, coordinated among Israel, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates, simultaneously targeting Qatar and Iran, with the future of Palestine and the fate of millions of Palestinians in and out of their homeland as the focal points of this treacherous alliance to sabotage and destroy the cause of Palestinian self-determination.

    Taking full advantage of this crisis, the timing of the US ambassador to the United Nations, the die-hard Zionist, Nikki Haley's visit to Israel marks Benjamin Netanyahu's long-standing design to push the Palestinian question completely off the global agenda. The ruling regimes in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt are willing and eager parties to this perfidious act.

    Although there can never be any hard evidence of the Saudi instigation of the suicide attacks and bombing of two symbolic sites in Iran, the parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini, Iranian officials are pointing fingers at the Saudis. But we need not necessarily accept the Iranian account to realise that Israel and Saudi Arabia are (and have been for a very long time) the main beneficiaries of such violent acts against Iran and Iranians.

    If we put the blockade of Qatar by its Arab neighbours and the unprecedented attack on Iran analytically together, a number of crucial consequences emerge to redefine the geostrategic map of the region.

    Israel and Saudi Arabia as two garrison states

    The current Saudi-Israeli alliance in trampling the Palestinians' fate, warmongering against Iran, and subjecting Qatar to a crippling blockade dominates and distorts the real picture of the region. The principle enemies of the Saudi and Israeli garrison states are not their counterpart states in the region but, in fact, the defiant nations that are falsely framed by these states.

    Three powerful nations in this area defy their respective states to map out their own democratic destinies: Egypt, Iran, and Turkey. These are the three nations that, in their thick historical memories and ensuing democratic aspirations, pose the greatest threat to the Saudi and Israeli colonial concoctions with no historical legitimacy on the ground. By virtue of US military and diplomatic support, this Saudi-Zionist alliance dominates the geopolitics of the region beyond its historical deserve.

    Among these three historic nations, the Saudi Arabia and Israel falsely assume they have neutralised Egypt by recruiting the military junta that has aborted its revolutionary momentum. Egyptians as a people, as an historically self-conscious nation (remember Tahrir Square), are not to be confused with the corrupt junta that now rules it, tramples on Palestinian rights, and is even willing to sell its own territorial integrity to Saudi Arabia.

    This Saudi-Zionist alliance thinks it can also disregard Turkey for it confuses the current coup-countercoup draconian dynamics of Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government with the robust democratic urges of Turks as a people, as a deeply rooted and self-conscious nation (remember both the Gezi Park movement and the popular uprising against the military coup last year).

    The alliance, therefore, laser beams on Iran for, contrary to its ridiculous claims, it is not the adventuresome disposition of its state that bothers it but, in fact, the volcanic democratic upsurge of Iranians as a nation frightens the living daylights out of these two colonially manufactured garrison states.

    It is not accidental that the primary target of those demented mercenaries attacking Iran was the Iranian parliament, next to the office of the presidency and the city councils the most democratic institution in an otherwise theocratic state apparatus. It is the democratic effervescence of the people of Iran (and Turkey and Egypt), trapped as they are within the framing of a misrepresenting state, that poses an existential threat to Saudi-Israeli alliance.

    Keep your eyes on these three nations: Turkey, Iran, and Egypt - do not be distracted by the antics of their respective state apparatuses being dragged into the geopolitics of the region - and you will have a far more accurate conception of every single development in the Arab and Muslim world. Keep also in mind that the Palestinian cause is at the heart of these three nation's democratic aspirations, and not a matter of systematic political abuse by their respective states.

    Despite its tiny size and sparse population, though deeply informed by waves of Arab and non-Arab migrant skilled labourers, scholars, journalists, artists, and intellectuals from across the world populating its universities, museums, and research institutes, Qatar has dared dreaming itself integral to the larger Arab-Muslim desire to fulfill its historic sense of dignity, which it has in part invested in putting the Palestinian self-determination at the forefront of its sense of moral identity.

    Qatar is not just for Qataris. Despite all its structural limitations as a minuscule rentier state with a massive US military base on its soil, Qatar has enabled an engine of social, intellectual, and artistic ambitions for the larger Arab and Muslim world. Donald Trump looks at Qatar and all he sees are dollar signs for his military contractor friends. Israel looks at Qatar and it is worried to see a thriving Arab capital with a sharp critical intelligence to the Palestinian politics it enables. Saudi Arabia looks at Qatar and sees dangerous ideas being bandied about its northern frontiers.

    That Zionists see that dream as a nightmare is, of course, natural. That the Saudis and their sidekicks have now joined forces with these Zionists in crushing that dream is an obscenity beyond words. The marriage of convenience between Israel and Saudi Arabia as two garrison states, armed to their teeth by the US to spread menace and to pit one group of Muslims against another, overcomes all other disparities between the odd couples.

    The simultaneous targeting of Qatar and Iran should forever put an end to the false flag that this is a battle between Arabs and Persians or else between Sunni and Shia Muslims. Qatar is both an Arab and a Sunni country, and is today the target of a most pernicious blockade and defamation by its own Arab and Sunni neighbours, while planeloads of food are being flown to Doha from Turkey and Iran.

    For now, let it be remembered that Israel, with all its ridiculous claim to be "the only democracy in the Middle East" (built on stolen Palestinian lands), is today in active alliance with the most retrograde and backward-ruling regimes in the region against the democratic aspirations of their nations. Let it also be remembered that the ruling family in Saudi Arabia are now in active alliance with the European settler colony that has stolen Palestine from its rightful inhabitants. Everything else from this point forward must commence with these two sobering facts.

    السلام عليكم
    well I didn't read the whole comments or the post but I know about the problem itself.
    They want to hit Hamas as a good move to support isreal's fight aganiest palestine.
    though they will do anything to make Trump[who is jewish himself,I saw his picture near the western wall in Al-Quds]
    as Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Tuesday that Qatar must stop supporting terrorist groups like Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
    THIS IS TRUE SCANDEL.
    my family is a part of muslim brotherhood,Alhamdillah Turkey and Qatar and Sudan was good people they accepted us and they didn't hurt or bother us like UAE and KSA did,This war is on islam.
    KSA is ruled by Al-Salol [
    hypocrites].
    Soon inshaallah we will rule this world again.

Rather it's a contest for influence that's being played out within the domestic politics of weak Arab states. Arab states such as Egypt, Lebanon, Libya, and Syria have become battlefields in a larger arena of geopolitics. This video will explore why the Sunni vs Shia framework fails to explain current events, and why an inter-Sunni conflict is becoming more important in Middle Eastern politics. We'll discuss the United States role in the Middle East and its goals going forward.


    That's what we're seeing on one layer, however, it's a bit like russian dolls (dunno if you've ever played with them when you were little, I think my nieces had them, was very intriguing, one doll is a case, and it fits over another doll, and so on until you see a huge doll), there is another aspect similar to the one we observe that took place during the iran-iraq war, the region was being weakened and both sides were being armed and prodded along by the one group along with it's allies - with the open american support for and arming of saddam
    with all sorts of horrendous weapons along with diplomatic shielding from repercussions, and whilst iran was also being supplied with weapons (iran-contra + others that didn't come to surface so openly), both sides were weakened, whilst saddam was isolated slowly from his neighbours - including Iran, obviously by looking at the map and the amount of manpower and resources it has access to, you'll see that Iran was not going to be invaded easily without weakening it first.
    A similar situation appears to be happening with other governments in the region, yes, they do, in their narrow minded bubbles, see their own thrones in contrast to that of their neighbours, and do engage in petty squabbles, but seem to often forget that they're being maneuvered and weakened by the daughter of the british empire, which ruled around a third of the world from a tiny little island in northern europe, not by strength, but by guile.
    Then there's a force which it would be wise of everyone to keep in mind, including the americans, the russians, the british, the chinese, the asians, and the arabs - this force transcends all the russian dolls and is more far reaching and tactically superior than everyone combined, that is the force of Allah the most wise and just.
    If only we looked up to His throne with humility and respect, we would all be able to work together and succeed - instead of damaging each other because of our will to dominate and lord it over others, whilst commiting injustice and trying to claw each others resources.

    We will all one day recognize our humility and weakness before him and how his plots are unable to be fathomed by mankind, jinn, and computers combined.
    We shall see some of it on earth - and on the day when He asks: "li man al mulk al yaum?" "Whose is the kingdom this day?".
    That will be the day when some beggars and street cleaners will look down upon some kings and queens with pity.

    Re: cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar

    @Junon and @anatolian just believe what you want to believe it doesn't matter anymore what i say or not say it will be all the same. In the past even one month back I spent a lot of time trying to untangle things so one could see what I am trying to say.

    However I have noticed a lot of times..me explaining or not explaining it is all the same. You don't understand it? Well it probably has a reason why..whatever that even might be...you yourself are to be blamed for not being able to see it.

    So I say "believe what you want to believe"

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/qatars-ne...021256641.html


    Associated Press
    Qatar's neighbors issue steep list of demands to end crisis
    JOSH LEDERMAN,Associated Press 19 hours ago
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries that have cut ties to Qatar issued a steep list of demands Thursday to end the crisis, insisting that their Persian Gulf neighbor shutter Al-Jazeera, cut back diplomatic ties to Iran and sever all ties with the Muslim Brotherhood.


    In a 13-point list — presented to the Qataris by Kuwait, which is helping mediate the crisis — the countries also demand an end to Turkey's military presence in Qatar. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the list in Arabic from one of the countries involved in the dispute.


    Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain broke ties with Qatar this month over allegations the Persian Gulf country funds terrorism — an accusation that President Donald Trump has echoed. Those countries have now given Qatar 10 days to comply with all of the demands, which include paying an unspecified sum in compensation.


    Qatari officials in Doha did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the AP. But the list included conditions that the gas-rich nation had already insisted would never be met, including shutting down Al-Jazeera. Qatar's government has said it won't negotiate until Arab nations lift their blockade. The demands were also likely to elicit Qatari objections that its neighbors are trying to dictate its sovereign affairs by imposing such far-reaching requirements.


    Only a day earlier, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had warned the demands must be "reasonable and actionable." The U.S. issued that litmus test amid frustration at how long it was taking Saudi Arabia and others to formalize a list of demands, complicating U.S. efforts to bring about a resolution to the worst Gulf diplomatic crisis in years.


    According to the list, Qatar must refuse to naturalize citizens from the four countries and expel those currently in Qatar, in what the countries describe as an effort to keep Qatar from meddling in their internal affairs.


    They are also demanding that Qatar hand over all individuals who are wanted by those four countries for terrorism; stop funding any extremist entities that are designated as terrorist groups by the U.S.; and provide detailed information about opposition figures that Qatar has funded, ostensibly in Saudi Arabia and the other nations.


    Qatar vehemently denies funding or supporting extremism. But the country acknowledges that it allows members of some extremist groups such as Hamas to reside in Qatar, arguing that fostering dialogue with those groups is key to resolving global conflicts.


    Qatar's neighbors have also accused it of backing al-Qaida and the Islamic State group's ideology throughout the Middle East. Those umbrella groups also appear on the list of entities whose ties with Qatar must be extinguished, along with Lebanon's Hezbollah and the al-Qaida branch in Syria, once known as the Nusra Front.


    More broadly, the list demands that Qatar align itself politically, economically and otherwise with the Gulf Cooperation Council, a regional club that has focused on countering the influence of Iran. Saudi Arabia and other Sunni-led nations have accused Qatar of inappropriately close ties to Iran, a Shiite-led country and Saudi Arabia's regional foe.


    The Iran provisions in the document say Qatar must shut down diplomatic posts in Iran, kick out from Qatar any members of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard, and only conduct trade and commerce with Iran that complies with U.S. sanctions. Under the 2015 nuclear deal, nuclear-related sanctions on Iran were eased but other sanctions remain in place.


    Cutting ties to Iran would prove incredibly difficult. Qatar shares a massive offshore natural gas field with Iran which supplies the small nation that will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup its wealth.


    Not only must Qatar shut down the Doha-based satellite broadcaster, the list says, but also all of its affiliates. That presumably would mean Qatar would have to close down Al-Jazeera's English-language sister network.


    Supported by Qatar's government, Al-Jazeera is one of the most widely watched Arabic channels, but it has long drawn the ire of Mideast governments for airing alternative viewpoints. The network's critics say it advances Qatar's goals by promoting Islamist movements like the Muslim Brotherhood that pose a populist threat to rulers in other Arab countries.


    The list also demands that Qatar stop funding a host of other news outlets including Arabi21 and Middle East Eye.


    If Qatar agrees to comply, the list asserts that it will be audited once a month for the first year, and then once per quarter in the second year after it takes effect. For the following 10 years, Qatar would be monitored annually for compliance.

    Re: cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar

    Information:


    RIYADH:
    Bahrain’s foreign minister accused Qatar on Monday of creating a military escalation in a dispute with regional powers, in an apparent reference to Doha’s decision to let more Turkish troops enter its territory.
    Bahrain, alongside Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt imposed a boycott on Qatar three weeks ago, accusing it of backing militants — then issued an ultimatum, including demands that Qatar shut down a Turkish military base in Doha.
    Turkey, the most powerful regional player to stand with Qatar, has increased the number of its troops in the base since the crisis erupted.

    “The foundation of the dispute with Qatar is diplomatic and security-oriented, never military,” Bahrain’s foreign minister, Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa, said in a message on Twitter.
    “Bringing in foreign armies and their armored vehicles is the military escalation that Qatar has created,” he added, without mentioning Turkey.
    In earlier tweets on Sunday, Sheikh Khalid said external interference would not solve the problem.

    The four Arab powers’ ultimatum, which also includes demands for the closure of Al Jazeera television and the curbing of ties with Iran, appears aimed at dismantling Qatar’s two-decade-old interventionist foreign policy.
    Two contingents of Turkish troops with columns of armored vehicles have arrived in Doha since the crisis erupted, along with 100 cargo planes loaded with supplies.
    Turkey also rushed through legislation to send more troops to the base days after the sanctions were imposed in a show of support.
    On Sunday, Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan dismissed the ultimatum as unlawful interference in Qatar’s affairs.

    Re: cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar

    It is about looting Qatar.
    And Also this.
    1)-The Syrian war was exported from outside.Mainly West.
    The Protests at the start of the War,were not peaceful.The protestors were ARMED.
    2)-There were many reasons for ousting Assad.
    Number 1:He is Anti Israel.
    Number 2:He was not allowing the gas pipeline to be developed between Saudi Arab and West.As the Pipeline had to pass through Syria.
    3)-NOW QATAR.
    The Syrian war is being won By Syrian Arab Army.
    Everybody knows that Assad has almost won.
    The only way something other than this may happen,is by full scale Invasion by US,or by Partition of Syria.
    So Qatar realizing that Assad has won and there will be no Gas pipeline to Europe,
    Decided to form a gas pipeline with Iran which includes Syria.
    This would actually change the fate of These countries.Including Iran.
    And Saudi Arab does not like Iran.
    Hence,The current conflict.
    Do not be Surprised if this breaks into war.
    That is why Turkish troops are there.To prevent the War.

    Well, we others also know that without support from Russia, Assad would to be a dead man already. If Russia by some reasons sends its troops to home, Syrians may beat him into the pieces very easily. No need the western invasion.

    We have suffered too much for too long. We will not accept apartheid masked as peace. We will settle for no less than our freedom.
