Qatar is calling up hundreds of civilians for mandatory military service operating security for the 2022 World Cup
Just when you thought Qatar couldn’t get any worse, the host country for the 2022 World Cup is now calling up hundreds of civilians for mandatory military service operating security.
Look, being right about Qatar and the World Cup and actually writing about it is no easy task. I’ve had a handful of articles that went crazy-viral about how it’s the worst country on Earth to host a World Cup and have been met with harsh criticism.
However, there’s no possible way I can stand behind a host country that discriminates against the LGBTQ community, and women’s civil rights. So I’ll keep criticizing Qatar so long as they continue to institute ridiculous rules and regulations against people in their country.
Every single story that comes out about the country and what they’re doing in preparation continues to get worse and I was there day one calling bullshit on all of it, that’s not going to change.
Here’s a quick recap on all things bad happening in Qatar, which again, I have been writing about for MONTHS and this all but confirms that everything I thought was absolutely correct.
The Back Story: As customary with all World Cup events, the rules and customs of the home country are enforced by FIFA and the World Cup for all players and fans traveling to the country for the biggest showcase on planet earth.
Typically, that’d be fine, but no so much in a country like Qatar. These people are absolute psychopaths.
FIFA 2022 World Cup Sex Ban Due to Qatar “Laws”
- No Sex Outside of Marriage
- No Homosexuality (Sorry England)
- No Public Displays of Affection
- No Drinking or Partying during or after Matches
Okay so now that we’re all on the same page with how Qatar sucks. Here’s what happens if you violate any of the rules in place above.
- Bring Alcohol: Jail
- Partying: Jail
- Purchasing Alcohol: Jail if you bring your own
- Sex: Jail
- Being Gay: Jail
- PDA: Jail
That brings us to the most recent announcement that Qatar has called up hundreds of civilians, including diplomats summoned back from overseas, for mandatory military service operating security checkpoints at World Cup stadiums.
Qatar has called up hundreds of civilians, including diplomats summoned back from overseas, for mandatory military service operating security checkpoints at World Cup stadiums, according to a source and documents seen by Reuters.

All of these people being called up to serve or brought back to the country will be trained to do the following at World Cup matches in November
- Manage Stadium Security Queues
- Frisk Fans
- Detect Contraband
- Stop Alcohol/Drug Smuggling
These losers are going to be checking for false bellies and ponytails, as well as jacket linings, to ensure no one is bringing in alcohol or drugs to their country and World Cup matches.
To be clear: Calling upon people in any situation, to perform “mandatory military service” isn’t right and begs the question as to why Qatar was even selected as the host country in the first place.
That’s not even bringing up the obvious about the World Cup being moved to November, in the middle of the NFL season, rather than when it is typically held during the Summer all because Qatar has temperatures so hot they will kill you during June-August.
Sorry. It’s 2022 and if you can’t treat people with common decency then you’re on my shit list. Basic civil rights laws need to be enacted before you’re allowed to host anything and welcome people from all over the world.
That goes for China, Russia, and certainly goes for Qatar. Don’t even get me started on Saudi Arabia and their blood money.
This is why I wrote an article about how America is back and when the World Cup returns to North America in 2026 and is played in Philadelphia. It will be the biggest party on Earth and finally give the world something to celebrate the right way.
Land of the free baby, you can fuck whoever you want, whenever you want. Hold hands, make out in front of the Liberty Bell, head over to Delilahs after a match.
Literally whatever you want to do is fair game and that, people of the world, is the way it should be.
The USMNT disappointed everyone in their international friendly against Japan, losing 2-0. They are back in action for their second friendly today at 2PM against Saudi Arabia. World Cup begins in November.
