- Did a Drone Attack just occur in Saudi Arabia?
- Is a drone attack even possible 800 KM into Saudi Arabia?
- What are the possibilities?
Why would Saudi Government then not ascribe internal fire to these incidents? Because admitting that its a Terrorist attack makes their armed forces look stupid!
No way these were drone attacks or internal fire!
The smoke rising above above Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq oil field might seem at first like the justification Riyadh has been waiting for.
If the White House is to be believed, Iran launched an unprovoked attack on the kingdom’s most important oil facilities. Saudi Arabia would be within its rights to strike its Iranian archrivals in response.
In an evening tweet, Donald Trump even appeared to give Saudi Arabia a say in whether the US would attack Iran. “[The US is] waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!”
Saudi Arabia has the power to bring fire and fury down on its most-hated foe but may be reluctant to actually use that power. The reality is the Saudis are deeply skittish about the prospects of any war with Iran because they know they will be Tehran’s main target.
If fighting breaks out between the US and Iran, the Iranians will have relatively few chances to strike America directly. They could target US ships in the Persian Gulf or order their Shia militia proxies to harass American forces in Iraq.
But most of their fire is likely to be aimed at the soft underbelly of Saudi Arabia, which is well within range of Iran’s missiles on the other side of the Gulf.
If buying world class weapons translated to battle readiness then this would not have happened!
I have worked in Saudia and if white people sell them bacteria from their stomach, the Arabs will buy it!
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
