I’m surprised that Strip Qatar of the games now is in the lead. How about before you throw someone under the bus you get the facts first? Just because someone makes an accusation doesn’t mean its true or as bad as they say it is. Don’t rush to judge without first doing a little research. I believe the answer should be that they should conduct their own investigation and if the claims are true, and then require Qatar to improve the conditions that need improving. Give them a dead line for the to be met and if the conditions are not met then they will lose the event You need to know what the labor group is claiming as slave like treatment. If the labor group is anything like the Unions in the US I would definitely be doing my own investigation first before coming to any rash decision. Any good leader would get both sides of any story before making a decision.

Bailly, Right on the mark. Dad always told me Son, : "Believe nothing of what you hear, and only half of what you see" As a global community we are quick to judge because as we all kknopw if you heard it on the internet or read or heard it in the news it must be true :) Ya right! Here in America the media typically reports slanted views of say the latest sensation killer or criminal and even before the verdict is read the person is ASSUMED to be guilty. It doesnt surprise me that strip the games is in the lead because remember Bailly, we all heard it on the internet. True journalism is a fast deteriorating art.
