US against Qatar but not its Money

 article about Qatar F-15
Last week, after Qatar's neighbours broke diplomatic ties as well as trade and transportation with the country due to its support of terrorism, Trump was happy with the move, saying that it's "the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism!" On Friday Trump actually accused Qatar of being a "high-level" sponsor of terrorism.

However, this Wednesday US and Qatar finalised the deal for Qatar to buy up to 36 F-15s from the United States. The deal is worth $12 billion and is expected to create up to 60 000 (temp) jobs in the U.S.

While I don't really know if Qatar is actually supporting terrorism or not, in terms of this story it's not even important. What is important is that on Friday Trump seemed to think that Qatar is a high-level sponsor of terrorism and the fact that many Middle Eastern nations cut ties with with the country was a good thing and positive move on the way of ending terrorism. This week he is willing to sell F-15s to those terror-supporting bastardos.

So which is it, are they supporting terror or not? If they are, you shouldn't sell them weapons of any kind, even if they do pay. If they are not supporting terrorism, you shouldn't say they are.

A few unpopular thoughts on equal pay and equality
Qatar F-15

Equal pay for men and women is a no-brainer. Same goes for people from different races and religions. However...I do have a problem with the activists claiming there's a huge gender pay cap while in reality the issue is far from what it is made out to be. The pay gap is most likely way smaller than you'd see in any official statistics, and additionally the reasons for the cap are not what the are said out to be either.

What Do You Deserve?
Qatar F-15

It is possible to have what we honestly feel we deserve in life if we choose not to accept that which we do not deserve. We all reap what we sow. However, once we do, we have the opportunity to sow once again that which we would like to reap in the future.
