Ron Paul on the Qatar Chaos: Washington’s Middle East Mass Confusion

Shortly after President Trump returned from his Middle East trip, Saudi Arabia and other members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) broke diplomatic relations with fellow GCC member Qatar and established a blockade around the tiny country.

  1. qatar refuses to share or cut a price break to big brothers SA and also decided that it needed Iran’s help to become the natural gas global leader………now they’re persona non grata and the new enemy of America…..What a bunch of military/media propaganda…….the fact that trump is playing along says a lot about who really dictates washington foreign policy……..

  2. Trump quite realistically asks a bunch of arab leaders to cut the shit and stop funding radical Islam, and the biggest kid on the block ironically points the first finger. Funny that the source of funds for the most notorious terrorist attack on the USA came from SA.
