IRAN ENVOY: ‘ALL-OUT WAR’ TO RESULT IF HIT FOR SAUDI ATTACK
20 SEPTEMBER 2019 (SOURCE: AP) – Any attack on Iran by the U.S. or Saudi Arabia will spark an “all-out war,” Tehran’s top diplomat warned Thursday, raising the stakes as Washington and Riyadh weigh a response to a drone-and-missile strike on the kingdom’s oil industry that shook global energy markets.
US BACKS SAUDI ARABIA’S ‘RIGHT TO DEFEND ITSELF’
19 SEPTEMBER 2019 (SOURCE: AP) –U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday that America backs Saudi Arabia’s “right to defend itself” after a weekend attack targeted the heart of its oil industry, comments coming after he described the assault as an “act of war.” The attacks have reignited fears over a wider conflagration in the region, as tensions remain high over Iran’s collapsing nuclear deal with world powers. Pompeo’s comments on Twitter came as he was in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, after meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom’s defense minister. The Saudis on Wednesday displayed missile and drone wreckage at a press conference, and cited other evidence they alleged shows the raid was “unquestionably sponsored by Iran.”

WAGING PEACE IN A 'WARZONE': 7 KEYS TO HEALING A TRAUMATISED NATION
20 SEPTEMBER 2019 –It has been a traumatic few weeks in South Africa. Various writers, commentators and politicians have gone so far as to describe the situation in almost war-like terms. However, it would be wrong to think that South Africa is alone or unique in experiencing tremendous upheaval on a national scale. There are other nations – outside of warzones – that are currently going through similar traumatic and challenging struggles. If, in the midst of the agony of a nation at odds with itself, the Church in that nation does not provide an answer or response, then that nation is indeed in a very dark place. Here is where the role of the Church, Christ’s Body, is vital.
