Saudi Arabia Gives Qatar 24 Hour Ultimatum As Analysts Warn Of "Military Confrontation"

Tyler Durden's picture

Shortly after imposing a naval blockade in the immediate  aftermath of the Qatar diplomatic crisis, one which left the small Gulf nation not only politically isolated and with severed ties to its neighbors but potentially locked out of maritime trade and crippling its oil and LNG exports, on Tuesday SkyNews Arabia reported that Saudi Arabia has given Qatar a 24 hours ultimatum, starting tonight, to fulfill 10 conditions that have been conveyed to Kuwait, which is currently involved in the role of a mediator between Saudi and Qatar.

According to media report, among the key demands by Saudi Arabia is that Qatar end all ties Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

While there was little additional information on the Ultimatum and more importantly what happens should Qatar not comply, Al Jazeera reported that Kuwait's emir, Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, left Saudi Arabia on Tuesday after holding mediation talks with the Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz to try to defuse an escalating crisis between Arab countries and Qatar. No details were given on the talks.

In addition to Saudi Arabia's aggressive approach, Egypt's Foreign Ministry accused Qatar of taking an "antagonist approach" towards Cairo and said "all attempts to stop it from supporting terrorist groups failed". Qatar denied the allegations, with a Foreign Ministry statement describing them as "baseless" on Monday.

Speaking to Al Jazeera, analyst Giorgio Cafiero of Gulf State Analytics, a geopolitical risk consultancy based in Washington, DC, said: "I think the Kuwaitis as well as Omanis ... fear the prospects of these tensions escalating in ways which could undermine the interest of all six members of the GCC.

"There are many analysts who believe that a potential break-up of the GCC has to be considered right now."

"If these countries fail to resolve their issues and such tensions reaches new heights, we have to be very open to the possibility of these six Arab countries no longer being able to unite under the banner of one council," said Cafiero.

He added that if tension escalates, some have warned of a "military confrontation".

Heard someone say that was Sorcha Faal disinformation. Don't know if that is true or not.

"and crippling its oil and LNG exports"

... and there is the reason KSA is adamant.  They need to get oil prices up so their goal is to take others offline as much as possible.  Libya. Iraq.  Now Qatar.  hell, maybe this is the source of all the Russiagate crap?  Lotsa KSA money floating around Washington and buying airtime and insider stock positions of the MSM?

Cross breeding goats with camels has a tendency to do that.

It's actually a scientific disorder discribed in the literautre as probiscus dromidarious and is a genetic disorder brought on by having  multi-intergenerational oral sex with camels.  They have sucked so much camel cock they started looking like their lovers!  There is also a goat version, but they keep them in the harems  tents along with the hot afgan boys and the studs for Bill and HILL!

Qatar's Sheik Yerbouti could end ties with Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

He could also grow his ties to Iran, India and China, and export LNG there, by shipping it from Qatari waters directly into Iranian waters.

What ya gonna do now Riyadh and Tel Aviv?

MEFOBILLS's picture

Qatar shares the same massive gas field with Iran. Qatar sells LNG as its main export.

Hence Qatar, Iran, and Muslim Brotherhood alliance.

Also, Qatar's leaders were implying a blood relation with the founders of Wahabbi Islam.

Wahabbi Islam has only one leader, and that is the Saudi King.

England is in on the Qatar side, and is not ready to give up Terrorism as method.

If America doesn't want a war, we will pay someone else to do it. Neo Cons still win. 

crazzziecanuck's picture

If I were Qatar, I wouldn't necessarily be afraid.

KSA can't even beat Yemen without the help of the UAE and the USA.  All they can do is slaughter civilians blow up everything they own.  As for winning their war and imposing their will, not so much.

Yep great deal, WWIII, and only 100 million Americans dead tops, Trump sure knows how to make a deal.

Pure Evil's picture

Those 100 million dead will all be Democrats, Communists, Socialists, libtards and snowflakes.


So, yeah, #Winning

Decisions decisions….bases in Qatar for our military or arms sales to the Saudis for our corporations. I see Trump going with Saudis and letting the military fend for themselves without the Qatar bases.

dude the Arabs are moving quick to cut off iran influence in the area. probabaly becuase the U.S. is pulling out. so its no deal more like Deal is off.

also mean trump is pulling the plug soon.

SA had chance to cut contacts with certain organization in Iraq and Syria, with carrot of more US military equipment, and help in isolating Iran. This saved face for house of Saud while Qatar was thrown under the bus, along with Iran. Another plus for both US and SA, higher oil prices, to help US domestic production and fill Saudi coffers.

If you don't understand winning, this is what it looks like.

Dun_Dulind's picture

Well, if you're one of those who always wanted to turn the Middle-East into a glass parking lot, it might be more entertaining to watch them simply off themselves instead.

* Oh! And if we can profit via arms sales to SA, all the better!

Is SA the newest barking dog on the israhell leash?

null's picture

Not newest. We will not know of the "puppies" for years.

And so what? Not a rhetorical question, perhaps this is a problem but nobody can seem to get past the obsessive hatred of Israel to explain it.

crazzziecanuck's picture

Not necessarily.  It's more like both nations understand what their positions are in the American Empire and know their boundaries.  Trust me, neither of these countriy's leaderss will ever take a shit without first clearing with the US Dept. of State.  AIPAC only has power because people only think they do.

Think the KSA, Qatar, Turkey or Israel would dare do anything to piss off the Empire?

Sniggers going to war with other sniggers.... this is bad *because why* ?

thats not the point, braindead fucking idiot.


the point is the big picture....america is trying to get at iran...who has done nothing for 200 years.


you are a sick filthy fucking killing machine, but soon it will all end...very soon...there is not much fuel in the tank left in america...

TheLastTrump's picture

How many countries does Iran have troops, trainers or assorted Republican Guard personnel in now?


How many US servicemembers were killed or horribly injured with Iranian supplied IED's in the Iraq war? And Afghanistan?


I could go on for a long time but I won't. You can talk to the hand.

null's picture

Try making it a little easier to self-identify as one and maybe some will do just that. Having a hissy-fit every time someone asks a follow up question is not very effective if you really want them to.

Dream on! And it sounds like a wet and sloppy one at that, lol.

But do keep that potty-mouth going since it explains the reasons that America does what it does very well.
