"Interesting Things Are Happening" in the Middle East

Qatar’s Gulf neighbours have given it until Tuesday to respond to a list of demands, after the original deadline passed on Sunday night.

I believe Qatar emphatically declined. What happens when they decline again on Tuesday? A few more days?

I guess I shouldn't make light of it. "Qatar's Gulf neighbors" could be planning an action against it calculated to make them change their mind.
The blockading countries have not detailed any penalties to be imposed if their ultimatum is spurned, though UAE diplomats have suggested either suspending Qatar from the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC), the regional trading bloc, or seeking to impose sanctions on countries that continue to trade with Qatar.
...but hey, do what you will anyway.
