4. the Wahhabist dictator of Qatar is not an "Arab Spring" sponsor..


and I hate using that phrase, it's just some Madison Ave coinage to sell the concept to the gullible, but that's neither here nor there. In all of those countries where one US-friendly dictatorship was replaced with another, the Qatari dictatorship has sponsored the Muslim Brotherhood, which is an organization that has been working with American agencies to suppress and hijack actual progressive revolutionaries in the region for more than 50 years. What goes on today is nothing more than business as usual and this dictator in question (a close US ally) is a major part of keeping it that way. The injustice in question is par for the course, and it's really tragic naivety (possibly strategically so) to think "maybe the guy at the top just isn't aware"..
