It is often said that silence speaks volume. The fact that not a single Republican official has condemned the expressions says all you need to know about what the path ahead is. No one in the GOP truly believes the things they themselves spew out: 1. Deficits only matter when they're not in power; o...Jump to post
1. Saudi Arabia and Co have provided their demands; Qatar so far refuses to accept any (and rightly so). 2. As long as it takes.

The only way Saudi Arabia can become a booming tourist destination (akin to the UAE) is if they plan a city (probably along the Red Sea) that's meant exclusively for tourism.

Probably for the same reason they don't believe in climate change: what they perceive is what they believe is true.

Agreed, but I don't know what the solution really is. Subsidizing interest rates roughly does the same thing. Not really.
