More than 20 years of ill-fated policies and incriminatory machinations by the nation of Qatar to destabilize the region and undermine peace and security were more than enough for four regional powers to reshape their policy of containment and appeasement to one of firmness and practical actions against such plots, the only targets of which are tearing the region asunder, and sowing seeds of sedition, chaos and terrorism.

Speaking to Emirates News Agency, WAM, a number of political experts corroborated the central importance of the decisive stand adopted by the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Bahrain against a "tiny state that made promotion of terrorism, harbouring of extremists, and broadcasting hate rhetoric its doctrine for more than two decades. A policy that has caused the patience of its neighbours to grow thin, leaving them with no options but to stand up to such sickening endeavours to claim a leading role in the region instigated by its inferiority complex and morbid aspirations for leadership and hegemony".

"The leaderships of the four terrorism-combatting countries have realised in no uncertain way that the Qatari leadership insists on continuing its double-standard policies and exposing the region to myriad menaces at the political, security and social levels," said Dr. Ali Rashid Al Nuaimi, Editor-in-Chief of Al Ain News portal.

"The geopolitical circumstances witnessed by the region at present have left no options for the four countries but to adopt a firm stance against the Qatari leadership in order to protect the region against further deterioration after the dire sequels triggered by the Qatari policies in many of the region's nations, including Egypt, Libya, Syria, Bahrain and Yemen. This is coupled with Doha's support for saboteurs and advocates of sedition in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain."

He drove home the fact that the firm political stand adopted by the four countries has enjoyed the support of their public opinion, including their parliaments and NGOs.

Fahad Al Shleimi, a Kuwait political analyst, and president of the Gulf Forum for Security and Peace, notes that the "Operation Decisive Storm" led by the Arab Coalition to Restore the Legitimate Government in Yemen, was a decisive start for bringing the political conditions in the region to their normal course.

"The region has survived a grave turning-point in its history that was rife with destructive political attempts of tampering with its security and meddling with its affairs at the hands of other regional powers that sought to exercise their political and sectarian influence over more than one Arab nation, sowing seeds of sedition and anarchy."

Saudi writer Hani Al Dhaheri sees that the region had been in a dire need of weathering the so-called "Arab Spring" and a firm stance against the Qatari regime has been the only way left to restore stability and security to the region and to put a decisive end to a disastrous juncture in the history of the region.

"Saudi Arabia has shouldered this hefty responsibility and by partnering with the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain, the Kingdom has managed to bridle in the doomed policies adopted by the advocates of terrorism in Doha."

"Qatar is closely associated with all the headwinds which have been blowing in the region over the past years," he said, expressing his conviction that it's very difficult to predict whether the Qatari regime would kowtow to the pressures and relinquish its diabolic schemes in the region."
