Saudi, Kuwait order nationals to leave Lebanon at once

The Kuwaiti order to its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately came hours after Riyadh warned Saudi citizens against traveling to Lebanon and asked those in the country to leave as soon as possible for their safety – “due to the current conditions and developments in the Republic of Lebanon.” On Saturday, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri flew out of Lebanon and announced his resignation from Riyadh, accusing Iran of threats to his life. His abrupt exit has thrown the country in turmoil.

    Saudi regime looks to be on a panic mode. And Lebanon is safer than saudi arabia where missiles fall regularly.

      That all depends on the Hizballators, and what their intentions will be. Sometimes Arabs deflect their anger on Israel, in the hope of rallying the Arab world. In that case you better not be over there, simply because Israel up until the last wars was careful, and did not do any massive bombings. Even in 1982 it was mostly tank battles, with Syria and the decimation of the Syrian air force. A lot of infantry did surgical work. And the civilians were left unharmed.

    The Iranians now have effective control of Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. They have always wanted to build an oil and gas pipeline through those countries and sell their oil and gas to Europe. That would be in direct competition with the Russians. For that reason I do not understand why the Russians are supporting Iran having this advantage. It is very stupid on the Russians part. Can someone explain it to me and Putin. There is obviously going to be a very big (in size) war. I do not know how it is going to turn out but I am sure it will start when the US attacks North Korea.
