OK - most non-American bread & circus sport(s) fans are not quite as geographically clueless as they are geopolitically cretinous or comatose - but if attending fans / fanatics get to feeling anti-climactic when the fairly-refereed pitch-battles in Qatar finally wrap up - they might consider getting the adrenaline and the blood flowing again with a quick sightseeing stopover flight to Yemen. It takes less than 90 minutes - or circa 50 mins in a Bahraini fighter jet:

"Bahrain Accused of 'Greenwashing' role in Yemen War"
"Bahrain Working Closely with Partners to Help End Yemen Crisis"
("Crisis" not war? "End" the crisis? By winning the war ? And wiping out the opposition ?)
War as sport with no referees - but with plenty of no-penalty shoot-outs. The sick jokes write themselves.
