Qatar: A tiny country asserts powerful influence
The Arab revolution keeps spreading, leaving chaos and turmoil in its wake. But one country has been untouched by all that: The tiny speck of a nation called Qatar, wedged between Saudi Arabia and Iran. There have been no protests or demonstrations there. That might be because the 250,000 Qatari citizens are the richest people in the world and there are no taxes. There isn't much democracy either, but Qataris don't seem to mind. The same family has ruled them for 150 years and life couldn't be much better.
