[QUOTE=Xiamen;9793258]11000 US troops in Qatar! Talk about suddenly having your enemy based in your backyard!
If this situation continues in a "stable" manner, this will benefit EK and EY greatly.
The question is whether the travelers will avoid the ME completely.

Well hopefully Qatar sorts itself out cuz parking issues will be horrible at the World Cup with all the roads riddled with mortar holes! FIFA will not be pleased.😉

Ever heard of Noraid?

Funny how so many Americans fail to remember how prevalent their fundraising was along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States throughout the eighties. Funds that supported The Provisional IRA, a terrorist group that killed and maimed hundreds of innocent civilians during the conflict, both in Ireland and in mainland Britain.

Support was reduced significantly after 9/11. I guess the Yanks suddenly realised that it wasn't very nice to have terrorist attacking them too!

Careful before pointing fingers.

Indeed Whitey - I always found it interesting how in recent years you would rarely have current QR pilots on here calling their mgt to task for misdemeanors similar to EK & FZ pilots. No complaints ? Really? Hard to believe with the combover king.

So now they must be in turmoil over there at DOH and no QR pilots on here spelling out what the word is from flight ops in QR -

What gives boys - all good in da hood as usual?

Spot on Harry, but you know the rules - it's only bad when it's not the US doing it. I remember seeing USAF personnel in the UK with medals and ribbons for serving in a "war zone", which is how they classified the UK. A "war" that they funded.

Mauritius and Maldives join the support of the Saudis and cut ties with Qatar as well now.

"
One more nation, Mauritius, has severed diplomatic relations with Qatar, following seven other nations, Khaleej Times reported on Monday.
As of now, a total of eight countries have cut ties with Qatar, namely Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Egypt, Yemen, Mauritius, Libya and Maldives.
UAE’s Emirates News Agency said that the UAE has severed all relations with Qatar, giving Qatari diplomats 48 hours to leave the UAE.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Bahrain said they will suspend air, sea and land transport with Qatar amid the diplomatic row, Doha-based Al Jazeera media reported on Monday.
Meanwhile, major airlines have reportedly suspended travel to and from Qatar. Qatar Airways said it has stopped flights to Saudi Arabia, starting at noon on Monday. Dubai's Emirates and Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways will suspend all flights to and from Doha, starting Tuesday morning. " end quote

AS

please explain in greater detail where and when you saw USAF personnel wearing ribbons and medals for action while in the UK?

I only recall US personnel stationed in the UK to help protect against the Soviet Union and definitely do not recall them being involved in any actions against any other force.

The only reference to US troops in action in the UK I can find are those that helped out with the German problem in the early 1940's.

There seem to be many here with chips on their shoulder about Americans and not only from those associated with this forum. I have seen it/read it and experienced it here. Say/think what you may, but you were liking us 77-79 years ago. Ever been to Cambridge Cemetery?

Wait till they discover that the UAE is also supporting various terror groups, then we can talk about grid lock.
The UAE has promoted such a double standard for a very long time.

No, we didn't like you.
They came because it was part of their agenda, and they liberated a couple of countries simply because it was on their way.
Just quote the number of French, Dutch and Belgian civilians killed by allied bombings - higher numbers than those victims of Germans ...
Soviet Union did much more to bring down Nazi Germany. Only that it's now convenient to forget it.

I have no idea where you're from, I do not care. My point was to merely highlight the irony of your statement blaming only the UAE and Saudia for supporting terrorism. It's often forgotten that the major protagonist in the fight against terrorism is also a former supporter of the very principles it despises. Only when the US mainland became a target did it's 'protected citizens' take a less jaundiced view to the British occupation of Northern Ireland and their often blind support for a terror organisation that was killing innocent people in the name of freedom! My point being that until the US itself became a victim of terrorism, there may not have been a shift in attitude away from IRA support. Fundraising had been significant up until then and it's subsequent reduction was certainly a catalyst in the cessation of the conflict. It's just such a shame that it took a monumental event such as 9/11 for the government and it's people to grasp that everyone is vulnerable.

This should not become an anti US forum. Many hundreds of thousands of lives, on both sides of the pond, have been lost in major conflicts over this last century. Tit for tat spats on this forum achieves nothing other than highlighting our own ignorance and immaturity. More importantly, it disrespects those that have given their lives in the name of achieving real freedom.

Perhaps we need to reflect on who the real enemy is here?

What has the midget leader of the airline "The Baker", has to say now? I wonder how come he hasn't slam people from neighborhood countries as he did to people from the West?

ohhh, I got it, he knows the one who would get hanged to the wall would be him, not Delta's former CEO!!

What a clown this midget is!! I guess he should man up now and start begging for some airspace
