Iron Tent Curtain Falls

Did you hear the biggest news of the week? No, it’s not that Russia invaded the Crimea and is “occupying” Ukraine. Sure, that nearly tanked world markets, but it was bush league compared to the other news, involving a major strategic American ally, that slipped under the radar.

Qatar had its ambassadors pulled by their neighbors: Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain. Yes, it seems that these three countries don’t quite appreciate the Qatari-backed Muslim Brotherhood/al Qaeda revolutionary program, nor do they like the fact that Qatar refuses to pledge to desist in aiding and sheltering people who are actively engaged in attempting to overthrow or subvert the governments of Gulf Co-operation Council States. They are apparently concerned that the al-Thani ruling family of Qatar wants to add Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Bahrain to the list of deposed (non-Muslim Brotherhood) governments, thereby gaining Qatar the political leverage to have ideologically pliable governments in charge over a great swath of the ocean-front real estate on the Gulf. It is along the coast that most of the oil and natural gas in the region is found. According to the BBC article, “The joint statement said the three countries had made ‘major efforts to convince Qatar’ to implement a November 2013 agreement not to back ‘anyone threatening the security and stability of the GCC whether as groups or individuals – via direct security work or through political influence, and not to support hostile media.’”

This is so juvenile, in response to many people pointing out that Qatar is “a” backer of the “rebels”.

Saudi Arabia IS another backer, it’s been reported.

This is theater in response to it being widely pointed out that the intelligence agencies and ruling families of all those countries - ALL of them - are all snuggly with UK/US financial elites that call the shots for the UK and US governments. So let’s face it, ultimateyl this is being done on behalf of the US. After all, the intel communities of those nations are like subsidiaries of CIA. Bandar “Bush”, had some stories posted on his chummy relationship with the Bush family - and then of course stories manage to find their way into the press that make it look like he’s not “their man”. The elites really are getting pathetic in their attempts to shore up their myths.

The ruling families were set up and backed by transnational elite financial interests.

It’s a little inconvenient to point that out, though, and have the populations of those countries, and the populations of sheeple in every country hear that truth. The sheeple then start to piece together the reality of geopolitics.

I authored this piece. A key is that the National Logistics Cell, which is part of the Pakistani Army, is for all intents and purposes the Taliban opium distributors.

Qatar owns a stake in the NLC, and hence owns a stake in the Taliban, al Qaeda, etc.

And we trust these al Thani’s with our most important secrets. It’s a deal with the devil, or worse.
