FLASH: KUWAIT MOVING TO "FULL WAR FOOTING" AFTER BRIEFING BY US OFFICIALS

UPDATED 2:47 PM EDT   SEE BOTTOM -- This is BREAKING NEWS as of 9:03 AM eastern US time on Friday, 17 May 2019 -- The Kuwaiti national security council have just had an emergency meeting after briefing by US officials.

They are publicly saying "the hours and days ahead are perilous and that the risk of regional war is unacceptably high."

They are moving to a full war footing within Kuwait, to support the USA and allies against Iran.

The current situation in the region due to rising tensions between the US and Iran, is “perilous”, head of the Kuwaiti parliament Marzouq Al Ghanem said following a crisis meeting with government officials.

He added that the government confirmed readiness to handle emergencies “in case of the eruption of a war” in the region.

Ministers of foreign affairs, trade, electricity and information explained their contingency plans at the meeting held behind closed doors.

“According to the detailed explanation given by the ministers, it has become clear how delicate, sensitive and dangerous the stage ahead and the necessity of taking all measures for all possibilities,” Al Ghanem said.

“At the foreign front, the situation is not assuring,” he added.

In recent days, tensions have mounted in the Gulf after four vessels were sabotaged off the eastern cost of the United Arab Emirates and Iran-allied Houthi militants in Yemen claimed responsibility for a drone attack on vital oil installations in Saudi Arabia.

UPDATE 9:09 AM EDT --  

RISK OF REGIONAL WAR IS VERY HIGH AND VERY ALARMING - KUWAITI STATEMENT TO THE PRESS

 

UPDATE 9:17 AM EDT --

SITUATION IS ALARMING AND SPIRALLING OUT OF CONTROL - KUWAITI GOVERNMENT STATEMENT

 

UPDATE 9:22 AM EDT --

WE ARE EXPECTING WAR IN THE GULF - KUWAITI GOVERNMENT PRESS STATEMENT

 

HAL TURNER OBSERVATION:  The Kuwaitis are VERY low-profile.  They are not given to wild statements like this, nor have their Diplomats ever used language of this nature, publicly like this.  This is VERY worrisome.

 

UPDATE 2:47 PM EDT --

"War against Iran will lead to World War III. Any attack on Iran would mean the elimination of Israel within half an hour."  - Being boradcast on Iran media outlets now . . .

The war against Iran will pave the way for a third world war, and any attack on Iran would mean the destruction of Israel within half an hour," said Mujtaba al-Nur, head of Iran's nuclear committee.

He pointed out that the United States can start the war, but the end will not be in her hand, pointing out that the US military targets in the waters of the Gulf will remain only a "hill of ash," noting that "before the dust settles, any attack on Iran, Iranian missiles will "hit the heart of Tel Aviv."

    I still say this is one big psy-op by the intelligence agencies, designed to coerce, scare and pressure Iran. Trump is not convinced that war with Iran at this point is the best thing to get involved with. The more people and countries they have on board going along with this the better and more realistic it looks. I'll bet a week from now it will be the same as now. Rhetoric and no action by either side.

    Gifford Rodine, love the way you continually try to rally support for this invaluable website...if we listened to the rubbish on the news here in Scotland we would never be any the wiser on world events. I switched on the news today when getting the kids up for school. The topic of the day on breakfast news was...how men can support women through the menopause....I ask you...is it any wonder the general public are stupid on world events when this is the crap that is pedalled out?
    I am going to send a donation to Hal right now to support this website...and to all of you out there who get the same "news" as we do...please donate so that we are Not blindsided by world events.
    Hope you are making a good recovery Hal. As a nurse I know what you are going through, and am constantly amazed that you are able to do radio shows and update your site in the way you have after all you have been through. God bless you.

    Since main stream media has been nearly silent on this now probable war, and two false flags in Fujairah didn't pan out, how will Iran's allies react when the US invades Iran? I've not heard much of anything regarding how Russia, China, North Korea, Syria or India are preparing for this or what their actions might be. What about Italy, France and Germany as trading partners? All of these countries have a vested interest in Iran. Thoughts?
