Kuwait Orders Citizens To Leave Lebanon Immediately "As Precaution Against Any Negative Impact That Might Take Place"

The drums of war are beating at a deafening pace: with Saudi Arabia ordering its citizens to immediately leave Lebanon on Thursday, just a few hours later Kuwait joined in.

According to the Kuwait News Agency, citing a foreign ministry statement, Kuwait citizens currently in Lebanon are urged to leave the country immediately.

The statement said the order is due to the "circumstances experienced by Lebanon at the moment, as well as a precautionary measure against any negative impact that might take place."

The ministry also urged citizens not to travel to Lebanon, "wishing at the same time security and stability for the Arab country."

At this point it is safe to assume that war between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia/Israel is just a matter of time.

Putting all those weapons the US is sending to use. Funny how on one side you have Iran, Hezbollah, Syria, Lebanon, with Russia "aiding".Then on the other, ISIS, AL-CIA-DA, the antichrist "jewish state", the US, wahhabi Arabia.Uh.

The saudi's are smoking some really strong hash if they think they are anywhere near ready to take on hezbolla. The Kingdom would get their asses handed back to them gift wrapped on a diamond crusted silver platter. If Yemen has proven anything it's that despite having all the best toys amd plenty of money to burn they simply cannot fight. The Saudi campaign in Yemen can only be described as an abysmal performance by their military and a strong example of their complete lack of national will and ability to successfully execute this type of endeavor.

But I also believe they already know this and while they will kick start this war because that's what the optics demand it is Israel that will be in charge of the actual military operations. Along of course with Washington but to what extent remains to be seen, sadly it's really not much of a stretch to see trump pushing direct military intervention as he clearly has a hard on for war with Iran and loves him some Bibi.

Make greater Israel great again even if you have to kill a whole bunch of Americans and level half of Lebanon to do it. I really hope I'm wrong about trump on this more than anything else but I have zero faith on that being the case.

The real question here is how will Moscow react? I think Putin will do whatever he can to avoid getting directly involved and turning this already really bad situation into the kind of trouble that will take millions of body bags to clean up after.

Unfortunately there is no guarantee he will be successful and who knows where it ends once the two military heavyweights of planet earth start swinging at each other directly.

I just hope we can avoid the glowing compulsory radiation therapy bit.

Where did I hear that?.. Oh yeah, that story about how almighty Saudi Arabia brutally punished little naughty Qatar. In fact, tried and failed miserably, losers.But Israel want something like the second front against Syria.

And what is the definition of such damned "safe space", if I may be so bold to ask? The underground coffin? Hiding under my desk? What is this shit... The robbermint got me covered? I rather trust the maffia than those fools. I ain't running nowhere. I'll be surviving on my own with my own allies. And the .gov are the terrorist. Going to fucking slave camps so the chosenite can catalogue the gentiles. Fuck that. Rather die fighting.

What is it with these fucking dish towel wearing Saudi goat fuckers... Next to the fact I despise their entire fucking existence. Wahhabism for everyone but not in our own backyard please... These muppets tend to go full barbaric. DUH! And the Saudi people... DO NOTHING?! Your entire existence is on the line, muppets. Thank the zionistas. So Lebanon faces an imminent threat now. Guess they're [Lebanon] really happy about that one. Fucking dish towels can't even intimidate the Houthi's let alone take them head on. Buncha dress wearing guys on sandals... But, with a strong will. Armed to the teeth as well.  But lets go at Hezbollah as well too? Another strong willed group that doesn't bow down and armed to the teeth. And has Iranian support.Death wish much?  Like Iran will take the provocation... Sure. Another Syria which they [ZOG] simply can not win. And Qatar? They're on the shit list as well. No... This will make them jump back in line... Highly doubt it. Egypt is shaking on it's foundation. Jordan too. The majority of the African region is on fire as well. What could possibly go wrong...?Fucking stupid idiots. Good luck opening Pandora's box. Don't expect me to come join the party with this conscript bullshit. Fucking idiots. Ghordius did had one point today. The never ending wars that Doubya laid the foundation for. All it takes is a fart in the wrong direction nowadays to declare war.

"At this point it is safe to assume that war between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia/Israel is just a matter of time."Or it could be a ruse to provoke elements of Hezbollah or the Lebanese army to start something.

All of this Saudi saber rattling has me more concerned about Qatar than Lebanon. OTOH< It may just be a test to see what Iran, Turkey and Russia's reaction is,Don't expect to read about their reactions in the NYT.  There's a better chanceof getting it in RT.

The jews are preparing to invade Lebanon, now that their campaign in Syria has been thwarted.  Clearly, the Saudis have been brought on board with this plan, even though it recently became necessary to purge dissident Saudi factions, some with extreme predudice.Remember that Hezbollah won the last round when the jews invaded, handing the jews their first real defeat in decades.

We need the emergence of a new player on the ice.  The two pro-war rogue nations - Israel and Saudi Arabia think they have a lock on dictating regional near future events.  I would love to see Egypt come in on the side of the Coalition of Courage.  Also Turkey needs to step up and tamp down any threat from the scurrilous gang of war hawks aka NATO.  But all in all, this has the makings of excellent theater, complete with sex, violence and rock and roll.  Can the noble, brave Coalition surprise the evil Saudi Empire by whacking their oil fields?  Can the failed grafted, Frankenstinian state of Israel be infiltrated by courageous freedom fighters toting dirty bombs in suitcases?  Will Turkey divert attention and open the floodgates, allowing millions of scuzzy refugees to invade Europe? Will American continue to play the part of the buffoon and rush to assist the rogue states? But I guess the biggest question of all - what will Vlad the Lad do??

kuwait?seriously[?],... who the fuck cares about kuwait!KSA citizens in Lebanon?Wow! there must be thousands [LOL], enjoying the country side now that the Syrian war is winding down.Saudi Arabia couldn't fight its way out of a 'paper bag'!this is 'International Politics', with asshole in China, and soon to talk to Putin in Vietnam about the 'Golan',.. Egypt wants nothing to do with it so that should dim a few lights?!?KEY:   Trump wants 'ARAMCO' listed on the NYSE asap,..making it officially in our financial domain (well being?)!Ps. the ussa and idf now have a joint strikeforce airforce established in israel since early 2017 (i would suspect the french and certainly the british are on a moments call).It all depends on what Putin says to Trump after conferring with Xi if the 'GOLAN' is worth getting on the wrong side of 'Jew Money', which btw is well into the 10's of Trillions $$$ (this is a conservative #...--- could be as high as $100 trillion dollars)

The US neocon's "Regime Change" strategy in Syria was a TOTAL FAILURE. This is todays neocon diplomacy on how to start a war next door to Syria in order to either draw them in, or to effect events inside Syria.  Today the US is the evil empire!

And once again, we will need to be convinced that Hezbollah - seeing all this setup narrative - is going to be stupid enough to set off a bomb or shoot a missile into both Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Kuwait, a country that fell within hours of the Iraqi invasion. Israel, a country who lost an entire tank brigade versus a less experienced Hezbollah in 2006. And, KSA, a country who cannot beat goat herders in Yemen. They are going to unite and fight Hezbollah, Iran, Syria, Russia, Iraq and rebellions from their own Shia populations. Great plan, guys.
