    The water issue goes a lot deeper than just rainfall etc. We need to go back to how nature has be providing water to be able to live, eat, drink, save bee's etc. A good doco explains and shows what is happening and how we should look at reversing it for ourselves at least.

    If you come to Singapore, take note that a portion of the water you consume over here (if it's not imported bottled water) is actually recycled water. In many countries, including Australia, recycled water is used for industries only and is usually marked as "non-potable water".

    Folks were also suggesting what happens after oil, what will be fought over, water etc as well. Its called a discussion which tends to lead to other issues, information and trains of thought. A discussion is not a locked in closed doctrine.

    The intention is to divert from the fact that the emperor has no clothes. That oil is already an obsolete resource and will be redundant in less than 30 years.

    Riyadh gave NO PROOF Tehran launched oil-plant attack – but still ‘expects US to do its dirty work for them’ https://on.rt.com/a1yy
    Saudi Arabia wants its allies to believe Tehran launched attacks on its oil facilities, even though the one thing their evidence proves is the Iranian-made arms. Even so, Donald Trump will unlikely greenlight a war against Iran.
    ‘Made in Iran’ is not ‘launched by Iran’
    The possibility that Iranian-made missiles were used in the attack on the Saudi oil plants isn’t a huge revelation, Viktor Murakhovsky, military analyst and editor-in-chief of Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine, told RT.

    Showcasing the wreckage from the missiles and drones that struck Abqaiq and Khurais facilities might have proven this point, but those were identified as soon as first photos of the debris emerged in wake of the strikes. Iran has developed such “long-range cruise missiles” on the basis of Soviet Kh-55 missile, which it bought from Ukraine in early 2000s, Murakhovsky said.

    But it doesn’t prove in any way that Tehran had anything to do with the attack and that the strikes [on Saudi petrol plants] originated from the Iranian territory.

    Despite the attack being claimed by the Houthi rebels in Yemen, Riyadh on Wednesday insisted that it couldn’t have been launched from Yemeni territory and was “unquestionably sponsored by Iran.” One of the arguments made was that the Houthis were not capable of carrying out such an attack. Murakhovsky disputes this.
    “There’s no secret that Iran supplies weaponry and military hardware to the Houthis in Yemen and cruise missiles could’ve well been among those deliveries,” he said. If so, such missiles are “not difficult” to operate and the Houthi forces didn’t need any help from Iranian specialists to carry out the attack on their own, the military expert said.

    ‘Trump knows striking Iran is a bad idea’
    What the Saudi report basicaly says is that “the weaponry could’ve been supplied, and probably was, by Iran in exactly the same way that [the UK] and others have suppled arms to Saudi Arabia, which had been used in this four-year war against Yemen,” Matthew Gordon-Banks, former British MP and senior research fellow at the UK Defense Academy, told RT.

    But by coming up with accusations against their main geopolitical rivals in Tehran, Riyadh “tends to expect the US to do its dirty work for them” – meaning a retaliatory strike on Iran.

    However, they are unlikely to achieve their goal as US President Donald Trump knows that “no matter what his advisors may say, a strike against Iran could have devastating consequences throughout the Gulf and internationally.”
    Iran is a “strong, self-sufficient country, with large territory and capable military,” and this means no rash moves from Washington should be expected before the 2020 election, Aitech Bizhev, former Deputy Commander of the Air Force for the CIS, said.

    “The majority of those, who voted for Trump don’t want war,” Bizhev added, suggesting that the US will continue sanctioning Tehran and will only resort to cold war moves aimed at maintaining tensions in oil-rich Persian Gulf.

    Saudis only buy offensive weapons they have sweet f-all defensive weapons. And its been proven the Saudis are terrible fighters, they buy billions of dollars worth of top US equipment only to abandon it all at the first sign of a firefight. They even have to pay mercs to come and fight the war in Yemen. More noticeably they had the former Blackwater group do some tours but even they got their asses handed to them, if you remember a couple years ago an Australian in charge of a squad of Colombians was killed.

    Typical paper tiger army, we should expect more oil disruptions for sure. I remember a while back the Houthis popped a Saudi frigate. They are definitely better at offensive operations than the Saudi's that's for sure.

    To think a frigates defenses can be left wide open is unacceptable by any Navy's standards today. They even lost one of those fancy HSV catamaran ships they built in Australia.



    Video still yemen houthi attack saudi.png swift_damaged_yemen_1021.jpg

    And all the Houthis need is a bottle of fuel and a handy bic lighter to destroys millions of dollars of hardware left abandoned by the Saudis.
