Who gets Qatar?

What is the desired end result of the sanctions against Qatar? Surrender? If that is the intention, who gets to "keep" Qatar?

Is this warfare by sanctions?

I wonder if 45 has any thoughts, rational or otherwise, on this?

2% of GDP

At the recent NATO summit, 45 berated everyone for not spending enough on defence. Apparently the agreement is for NATO members to get to 2% of GDP on defence/military spending, and Canada is not there yet.

Are defence spending and military spending interchangeable. Do they mean the same thing?

Does the 2% include the budget for the entire Canadian Ministry of National Defence, i. e. salaries, offices, office equipment? Would, or could, money spent on badly needed improvements on housing of military personnel and their families on Canadian be included. Or does the 2% just cover operations?

History

After all this time, I'm just getting started.
