Saudi orders its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately...
« on: November 10, 2017, 03:56:13 PM »
..amid rising tensions, between the two countries, and between Iran and Saudi.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-41932838

Saudi have blamed Hezbollah for an attempted recent missile attack on Riyadh, which was intercepted.

"Many Lebanese fear that their country is becoming embroiled in a wider conflict between Saudi Arabia, a major Sunni power, and Shia-led Iran, its biggest regional rival"

Lebanon is accusing Saudi of effectively decalring war.

If this escalates further it will be interesting to see how Russia and the US respond, being Iran and Saudi's backers respectively.

War is possible of course, but I suspect not an outright military confrontation, just the usual proxy shit in a bid to avoid pulling the US and Russia in. I smell US meddling of course. It's what they do. Maybe a test for Putin. All these good vibes between Putin and Trump are staged IMO.

War will happen when the world ditches the US $ . High time China rose up o this challenge. The Americans will go berserk...that's for sure. Will we end up rimming the US due to that "special one way relationship"?  :D
