    Protect Qatar from whom? If Qatar comes out of the SA's clutch I don't think Iran will create any problem for Qatar. Apart from that I think Turkey is quite capable of protecting Qatar from her bullying neighbours.

    Creating threats and then demanding protection money is the national interest of the US, we understand that quite well.

    Lol You like blaming everything on the U.S/West. So tell me, the U S created this enmity between KSA/Arab states and Qatar right? Lol
    The U.S also forced Erdogan to support MB and try to topple Assad in other to divide the muslim world right? The U.S also created enmity between KSA and Iran and forced Iran to intervene in Syria to prop up Assad regime which you hate right? Lol. It's all about each country's interests dude, sometimes a country's interests might converge with another country, sometimes not, it has been the case for centuries and will keep on being that way until mankind seize to exist. :)

    Didn't trump take the credit for creating the crisis? The US creates crises but no one can blame them, you are asking too much from others.

    I am only addressing responses that are not grounded in facts or lack in logic. Some people have no idea of capabilities of F-15 series birds and specifics of the deals involving them but needlessly criticizing Qatar on this matter.

    To some people, 21 billion USD investment package involving scores of F-15 series aircraft is not worth it. My argument is how can you be so certain about this? Do you know anything about these birds? Do you know the specifics of the package? Subjectivity at its finest.

    India has invested almost 30 billion USD in its MRCA deal which involves procurement of only 36 Rafale aircraft. Now, Rafale is MMRCA whereas F-15 is a massive 'air superiority' aircraft with relatively superior performance, range and payload capacity.

    Critic of any deal should come from people who are familiar with its specifics and understand the capabilities of aircraft involved. Very easy to say that Qatar is milking US and vice versa but if Qatar's threat perception extends to Saudi Arabia, it needs a potent strike package for its defense because Saudi Arabia have it.

    In the red flag, F-35 has show its advantage in front of 4th generation fighter jets.
    Qatar should have bought F-35s.It is relatively reasonable price for F-35.
    The feature of stealth matters the most in today's airborne combat. No matter how advanced and maneuverable F-15 SQ is , it cannot counter a real stealthy fighter, cause it would be shot down before its might's put to practice.

    You are the one that is losing the eye sight. You don't see the F-15 emitting like this.
