The US isn’t going to help at all...just condemn Israel for going after it’s enemies. We have such a dud in the White Hut.

Muslim shmuzlim. The House of Saud is looking at being turned into glass by another muzzie. Loyalty is only so deep when you are looking at annihilation.

Could it have been Saudi (or U.S.) copters in Israeli livery? If the Saudis wanted to rile the Persians they could have a couple of copters decked out in Israeli colors and have them fly around conspicuously loading and unloading at air fields around the Kingdom.

I guess Iran didn't notice that Saudi Arabia is a muzzlem state. Assuming this article isn't BS.

They’re also looking at elimination from within. A high ranking Saudi prince wrote an open letter suggesting they step down or face being beheaded in the streets. I can’t think the Wahabis are pleased by this info.

Just how do you tell if the equipment is intended to attack Muslims?

Does it have bacon on the nosecones?

Which could be one reason why the Iranians "semi-officially" published it, true or not.

Unless I miss my guess, Israel wants Iran to think the hit will come via Saudi while the hammer comes from another direction.

Mecca is the Iranian mullah’s goal. Jerusalem is but a side show and fig leaf for the coming war.

Control the Haj, control Islam.

Islam is the sought after prize

Okay...I’m confused by what exactly they mean by “weapons meant for attacking a Muslim state”.

Pork-filled 2000-lb. bombs? A JDAM full of pig s**t?

This has nothing to do with Israel - except indirectly - and everything to do with Iran challenging Saudi Arabia for the position of being the protector of the faith. Iran is attempting to set Saudi Arabia up as being, essentially, blasphemers who can no longer be trusted with the caretaking of the holy relics and shrines of Islam, Mecca in particular. That is where this particular subplot is going, and it is why Saudi Arabia is, in private at least, scared sh*tless about Iran.

Considering this is originally from an Iranian news source, semi-controlled by their government, I don’t really think it’s all that accurate.

This is all a show to let Iran know that Israel is serious. Message to Iran “stop the nuclear weapons program or we will go to war!”

Thanks hp. There's a reason Zero never brought the troops home from Iraq. It's the same reason he bowed to his master, the King of Saudi Arabia.

Israel has about 475 nuclear weapons....And the means to deliver them. They have small tactical nukes too.

Israel says their neighbors want them all dead, and won't stop till that happens.... I suggest Israel use them.

Didn't we go through all this during the Bush years ever 3 months, right up until he left office?
