I would agree if this was just Qatar vs UAE/SAUDI block but it's not! Turkey comes as the package deal, in fact Turkey and the UAE are bitter enemies and oppose each other everywhere as is Egypt, they have a cooling relationship with the SaudisThe most just position is the neutral position IF he was truely neutral!
but farmaajo campain donation and "bribes" he paid the mp's with came from Qatar. His Chief of Staff is a former Qatari aljeezra journalist.
It's a mess I personally would have weight up the pro's and cons and would have went with the evil SA/UAE group just to be pragmatic.
But I would have done it brudgelny as I hate the corrupt UAE.
So far going with qatar has shown us litte economicly.
In foreign policy when your an absolute impoverished country rule number 1 is that you never sideline your best most reliable friend whom in a very short period of time have done more for us then all other nations put together in 30 years.
They are the only country serious about building the SNA backed up by their military base and their largest embassy in the world, not just mere hearsay we heard for the past 30 years from these GCC countries.
Your advocating throwing our only life line Turkey under the bus which is absolute suicide and for what exactly ? what has the UAE/EGYPT/SAUDI ever done for us inside the country other then subversion and arm terrorists ?
All the nonsense of livestock export market and Somali's doing business in UAE are all laughable, it's nothing more then trade which the UAE benefits from the most since the trade surplus is heavily in their favour, we have the cheapest livestock in the world which we export to them and also after the Iranian's they make the most money from us on their main port.
The Turks have tried to change this by internationalising Somalia's ports starting with Xamar, they have put in bids for Kismaayo/Bosaaso/Berbera until the UAE parasites blocked all of this through the GCC and through bribes, then went on a damage control to buy them all up and do a Yemen on them so it never competes.
This flipflopping mindless switching between super powers is what got us in trouble in the first place, if we don't learn from our past mistakes we are doomed for the future.
