We cover the events of March 2011, including Assad’s first speech since the start of the troubles, in which he blames foreign elements, sacks his cabinet, and points the finger at Al Jazeera, the satellite television network based in Qatar – which leads us to some talk about Qatar, their history, their recent troubles, their relationship with the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, and their support of the Muslim Brotherhood.
