Trump Can’t Devastate the Turkish Economy Because Bogus US Ally Qatar Will Save Erdogan Yet Again

There have been inexplicable phenomena in the Middle East for some years now. Any attempt to explain them logically comes up against a dead end, and gives way to conspiracy theories. How can one logically explain both Israel’s and the United States’ prostration to Qatar? Theories range from the conspiratorial, such as Qatari infiltration of the two governments, to the seemingly implausible assumption that these governments and their agencies are simply naïfs, or are profoundly uninformed.

Let us list some examples: The United States is the only country that surpasses Israel in groveling to Qatar, despite the latter’s unending anti-US incitement, particularly against the current US administration. As far as the Al-Jazeera TV channel, owned by the Qatari emir, is concerned, the Democrats are the only legitimate party in the United States, and the few Republicans worthy of coverage are Senator Rand Paul — presented as a political heavyweight — and former Senator Bob Corker, whose decision to not seek re-election in 2018 was concealed from the viewers as if it were a trifle.

For years, the United States has felt indebted to Qatar for hosting the Al-Udeid airbase and CENTCOM headquarters. Pentagon chiefs and American political leaders come and go, and no one remembers that it is Qatar that is indebted to the United States for maintaining the base. Qatar originally built it, at a cost of $2 billion, to guarantee an American presence there, since without this presence the Qatari regime would have been devoured long ago. Today, faced with the threat of a Saudi or Emirati offer to the United States outdoing Qatar, Qatar is buying Pentagon goodwill by building an entire city to host the American servicemen’s dependents, and is expanding Al-Udeid. But this deal, that assures Qatar’s survival, has exacted a heavy price from the US. American fighter bombers are engaged in the Sisyphean task of setting out from Al-Udeid to strike at Islamic terrorists who were nurtured by Qatari propaganda — propaganda that cultivates a new crop of jihadis for the Americans to bomb — and the cycle continues.
