Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

If you do not have an account at https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/, please sign up. By the end of November, it will become the forward address of RR-BB.com

    Blaming Iran, Saudis say Huthi strike may be 'act of war'

    Dubai (AFP) – Saudi Arabia and Iran traded fierce accusations over Yemen on Monday, with Riyadh saying a rebel missile attack “may amount to an act of war” and Tehran accusing its rival of war crimes.

    Tensions have been rising between Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia and predominantly Shiite Iran, which are opposed in disputes and conflicts across the Middle East from Yemen and Syria to Qatar and Lebanon.

      I think this is unusual for Saudi Arabia. Part of their current difficulty is that the "royal" family has gotten very large.

        Saudi-led Coalition Blames Iran for Missile and Warns It Could be 'Considered as an Act of War'

        (SANAA, Yemen) — The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen closed off the land, sea and air ports to the Arab world’s poorest country early Monday after a rebel-fired ballistic missile targeted Riyadh, blaming the launch on Iran and warning it could be “considered as an act of war.”
        The coalition’s statement ramps up tensions between the ultraconservative Sunni kingdom and its Shiite rival Iran, both of which have interests in Yemen’s years long conflict. The bloodshed continued Sunday as an Islamic State-claimed militant attack in Aden killed at least 17 people.
        Countries involved in the coalition aside from Saudi Arabia, include Jordan, the UAE, Pakistan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Turkey, Chad, Togo, Tunisia, Djibouti, Senegal, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Gabon, Guinea, the partially-recognized state of Palestine, the Islamic Federal Republic of the Comoros, Qatar, Cote d’Ivoire, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Maldives, Mali, Malaysia, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Yemen.
        In a statement, the coalition accused Iran of supplying Yemen’s Houthi rebels and their allies with the missile launched Saturday toward the Saudi capital’s international airport.

        I suspect that Yemen is no longer part of this Coalition. During the two decades that I was in the USAF, Saudi Arabia was 100% dependent upon the US military for their protection. Their air force was nothing more than a means to provide toys for some of their princes. Their ground troops were made up of non-royals, a group that at the time was treated quite differently than the royal family members, and who really didn't have much to fight FOR...

        I doubt that Saudi Arabia on its own has a whole lot of ability to wage a serious war, but this blockade of Yemen along with leading this Coalition is pretty impressive, at least to me.

        Saudi Arabia has long had an impressive internal police force.

              I am planning on watching that later.

                  Saudi Arabia orders its citizens to leave Lebanon

                  BEIRUT — Saudi Arabia ordered its citizens out of Lebanon Thursday amid skyrocketing tensions between their two governments.

                  A brief statement carried by the state-run Saudi Press Agency called on all Saudis living in or visiting Lebanon to depart, and warned against travel to the country.

                      This article explains alot about what is going on with the Al Saud family. There is even a family tree depicted so it helps to see in pictures who all is involved.

                        Interesting article. It will be interesting to see where this all goes.

                          The idea that the Saudi's are going to unilaterally stir up the Hornets Nest that is Lebanon
                          ought to give anybody a pause in thought.. cuz you full well know that's not how it ends.

                          If Iran should go after the SA eastern oil refineries, everyone will know what's happening quickly.
