Qatar vs. Saudi Arabia

The headlines have been overtaken recently with a regional dispute that has suddenly escalated between Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies, and the one sheikdom that doesn’t toe the Saudi line: Qatar. The roots of this conflict go back further than the last few months or years, but regardless of the particular dispute or demands this time, the consequences could be much more wide-ranging. Already, many African countries are taking sides and Iran’s involvement in the Gulf is only increasing. Definitely a volatile situation to keep an eye on.
