It may have seemed like the west was sitting on its hands, but Blinken has been tirelessly fighting for this with some very difficult
The west was never truly in the right place or had the ear of the people in the middle east.
We need to accept that the people of this region have a different set of values, morals and a culture vastly different from ours so that the mediation, negotiation and deliberations needed to come from within.
Within meaning he wider region.
It's ironic that Qatar a nation the hosted the last world cup has been vilified for its own human rights violations. We simply cannot accept they don't live by the same standards as us. That sentence is not intended as a rebuke, who are we to say they should bow to our will. Homosexuality is outlawed there, that abhorrent to most in the west, but it one example of the west unable and unwilling to respect others have not got the same outlook as us.
Protesters here, protest about things in another part of the world, in areas we have no control. Their action are being described as intimidating, harassment and often bordering on violent, WHY? because these people have views different to there's. At least over there such actions are dealt with via a good hammering of the perpetrators.
OB is right,Blinken has tried hard, but the USA is seen as much as part of the problem and not the solution. Now it seems (jury still out) that what has truly been needed was a Muslim country to step up to the plate. If Qatar can be that stabiliser,imho good luck to them.
