Saudi FM: Qatar Must Send Troops to Syria or Face Regime Change

• http://truthinmedia.com, By Whitney Webb

According to the country's foreign minister, Saudi Arabia is pushing its former ally Qatar to send its military into Syria or face dire consequences. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir issued the threat in response to U.S. government efforts to create an "Islamic coalition" of troops from neighboring countries that will act as a permanent military "stabilizing force" as a precondition to the U.S. removing its own forces from Syria's occupied Northeast.

Jubeir stated on Wednesday that, were Qatar to decline to be part of the new coalition, the U.S. would cancel American protection of the country, which is home to the largest U.S. military base in the Middle East. Qatar, he said, must "send its military forces (to Syria), before the US president cancels US protection of Qatar, which consists of the presence of a US military base on its territory."
