Qatar is given ‘one year to stop abuse of its migrant labour workers or face a UN commission inquiry. WOW! I bet they are really scared now.
Although the abuse was relayed back in 2015 and has been going on for years, the US has decided that as of now the one year transition to being nice will commence. Of course a UN ‘inquiry’ could take another five years, enough of a lag to fall short of the deadline for the Qatari based World Cup matches slated for 2022. Surprise! In the meantime, I imagine their plan of action is to ramp up the abuse to accelerate the completion of the overhaul to the stadium before the UN yawns and flexes into action. Maybe they’ll send over some of their rapists to investigate.
Imagine telling a rapist he had a year to stop raping before he would be investigated? Or a banker given a years notice before he would be inquired about embezzlement? A Meth dealer – “we know you are dealing but we are putting you on notice that one year from now we will look into your ‘dealings’…”
That’s like being guaranteed a year of unabated crime without recourse or consequence.
In Qatar the migrants make up 90% of the population! Talk about an inequality of wealth! The country has THE highest per capita income in the world… yet that capita is apparently consumed by the 10% of the population that identify as Qatari’s while the migrants are paid monthly wages of about $200. They are beaten. Their passports and papers confiscated so they can not escape. They are deprived of wages at all – sometimes for months. They are charged a fee for the right to work. And they live in squalor. Gee whilakers, better not do that anymore…or else.
But hey, this country is given high fives and koodo’s! And they are allowed to host the World Cup. And who decides which country will have the honor of hosting the World Cup? FIFA, of course. The same rigged, corrupt, fraudulent FIFA that has been mired in bribery charges, money laundering and racketeering. Of the 35 Managers employed part time to determine which country may have the privilege of Host, they were paid $30 million plus $4 million in bonus’s – not to mention how much they put in their Offshore Luxembourg account as bounty from bribes.
These same Managers within the UK have arrogantly demanded that countries boycott the Russia hosting, because well, they believe Russia is militarily aggressive. Ouch! Talk about a Log in the eye…
But I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised by the dire warning that gives Qatar a heads-up advantage to continue abuse, Germany has adopted the same attitude but in reverse – allowing migrants fair game to rape, loot, burgle and pillage without legal consequence. “Please don’t rape that 9 year old boy again…”.
The same Germany that is investigating a national comedian for hurting Erdogan’s feelings and possibly putting him in jail for 4+ years.
Why do we allow the Qatari human rights abuse?
Because at their Al-Udeid Air Base they allow/host the US Central Command and the US Air Force Central Command where we have most recently deployed B-52 bombers capable of holding 20 nuclear warheads and deploying air launched cruise missiles in a bid to ramp up the game against ISIS.
So what happened to the Syrian cease-fire? They US has continued unabated bombing from facilities in Jordan, Djibouti, Italy, Iraq and Turkey. Exactly who was supposed to ‘cease fire’?
Simultaneously we have the Hillary avidly declaring that she will NEVER be prosecuted, because of course, the law only applies to those without power and has nothing to do with Law.
Rules – Laws – the ambivalence is only as perverse as the information is falsified. Because – how can you possibly care when the disinformation forms your opinion and thought?
One thought on “UN Warns Qatar…A Mirror of Corruption”
For moments there – on Qatar – the rich the poor the lashings the powerful the subservient…thought I was bang in the beginning up to mid-story told by Alex Haley in “Roots” …
