Default (Old News) - Regime change in RAK?

Was scouring the interwebby and found this little gem from The Guardian...

A bloodless coup to take control of an Arab Gulf state is being plotted by an unlikely alliance that includes a powerful firm of US lobbyists and a provincial English high-street solicitor.
RAK is a crazy place...

Just curious to know why you posted such an old story. Any hidden agendas?

Was thinking the same thing...just how close is RAK to the Strait of Hormuz and how far from Iran?

Perhaps because it ISN'T an old story........ nothing's changed, surely?

Exactly, it's an ongoing thing and now with the proposed closing of the Hormuz Straits by Iran, it just makes you think.
