    U.S. destroys three radar sites on Yemen coast after Houthi rebels twice fire missiles at U.S. navy ships
    National PostOctober 13, 2016

    WASHINGTON — U.S.-launched Tomahawk cruise missiles destroyed three coastal radar sites in Houthi-controlled territory on Yemen’s Red Sea Coast early Thursday, officials said, a retaliatory action that followed two incidents this week in which missiles were fired at U.S. Navy ships. The strikes marked the first shots fired by the U.S. in anger against the Houthis in Yemen’s long-running civil war. The U.S. previously only provided logistical support and refuelling to the Saudi-led coalition battling Yemen’s Shiite rebels known as Houthis and their allies, including supporters of Yemen’s former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh. While the U.S. military has been focused on al-Qaida in Yemen, the Houthis

    Yes, I watched the story as it was reported on CBS this morning. Two weeks after the initial attack, 38 minutes into the news broadcast, and after the report of a dog being rescued by a hotel manager, after its' leash was accidentally caught in the closed doors of an elevator and the poor animal was nearly lynched.

    Of course the obligatory animal rescue story was reported first. Lol.

    Also this was the first time I heard that two U.S. naval vessels were involved in the attacks. I only heard about the attack on the DDG Monson about two weeks ago.

    The CF Rule only prohibit prophetic "utterance". That is to say, someone posting an announcement of something that takes place at some future date, and claiming their statement is the very Word of God. ie. "I am a prophet of God, and this is what God told me to tell you", or "believe what I tell you lest I smite the earth with a curse". Those are definite violations of CF rules, as they would qualify as a prophetic "utterance".

    As far as I know, CF doesn't prohibit the examination of historical events as they might relate to Bible prophecy, (often called newspaper exegesis by skeptics), or ideas about how End Time Bible Prophecy is going to be fulfilled.

    Otherwise, there would be no eschatology section in CF. So as long as you couch your information in a format that is acceptable to CF rules, I think anyone can find a way to communicate just about anything they want here. You just have to be careful about the way you say it.

    That's what I do.

    Yeah. All the networks are doing the same "animal rescue" story before they do any international news. The day before yesterday, it was an eagle (in Florida I believe), being rescued from the grill of a car. Did you see that one too ? Lol.

    Call me crazy, but somehow I think Russia test launching ICBM missiles is more important than someone pulling a brown eagle out of the grill of a car.

    Defcon Warning system (apparently not government related) has raised alert level to Defcon 3.

    I can't find a link and the defcon alert website is running very slow. Here's the twitter page. It's all I can find to verify.Defcon warning system on Twitter.

    can't say for sure I first came an article that linked to this website. It appears this link is not a government website. It is named Defcon warning system though. So the report is apparently stating that the Defcon warning system (not related to the military) feels that we at a level yellow or 3.

    Funny you should bring that up. Back in 1978 my brother worked at Cheyenne Mountain NORAD for the Air Force and arranged for me to tour the facility. It was probably the scariest thing I've ever done. It was a group tour of a dozen people, mostly consisting of military personnel.

    The command center with the big screen showing the bomber and missile trajectories (should they be launched), looked exactly as it did in the movie "Doctor Strangelove", "How I learned to love the Bomb", except it wasn't in black and white. Apparently the Air Force doesn't redecorate very often.

    Everywhere you went there were the DEFCON numbers indicating the current state of alert. I believe when the tour started, it was also at Three. Then a siren went off and it changed to Two. The huge steel blast doors at the entrance of the underground facility closed, and you could feel the air woosh past.

    At the time, we were observing a placard showing the massive springs upon which all the buildings were suspended. An officer appeared with two airmen wearing side arms, and we were ushered to a conference room where we were told to remain.

    I asked one of the airmen guarding us, "What happens at DEFCON One" ? He summed it up in two simple words, "We launch". I sat there for the next 30 minutes holding my breath in absolute horror waiting to hear the next blast from the siren.

    Eventually, another officer came in and directed us to the bus waiting at the end of the tunnel beyond the blast doors. One of the people in the tour remarked, "Thank God that's over". I looked at him disingenuously and said, somberly "You didn't think they were going to let us stay down here with them during the nuclear war, now did you" ?

    Whenever anyone asks me about my impression of the tour, I always respond, "They're all quite insane and perfectly prepared to destroy the entire world".

    USA Today Financial Section 10/14/2016

    "The Nasdaq, Nyse and Treasury notes all ended down on Friday, in a month financial experts are calling the worst in 2016". The British pound continues to crash, and the Japanese yen and the Chinese yuan are also both down.

    Is this the beginning of the catastrophic global financial meltdown predicted by the Third Horseman of the Apocalypse ?

    Crazy weather. Tornadoes struck Oregon as a result of these Pacific storms in the Pacific Northwest. Very, very rare for this area to experience tornadoes.
