ISTANBUL Questions about the aims and temperament of Saudi Arabias powerful crown prince came to the fore Monday after his country issued a bellicose warning to Iran, accusing it of carrying out a missile strike on the Saudi capital that may have constituted an act of war.
The missile was fired from neighboring Yemen on Saturday by the Houthis, a rebel group with ties to Iran that has been battling a Saudi-led military coalition. The war has spawned countless cross-border attacks including Houthi ballistic missile launches and thousands of Saudi airstrikes across Yemen as well as an endless string of recriminations between the Saudi and Iranian governments.

Whip out the popcorn and stay put of it.
yep, mecca geddon cool
Weren’t the Houthis the tribe of Faisal’s that Lawrence began the his rebellion with.?
Redirect those missiles to Mecca?
Saudis clearing house and now this? Right out of the fascist/commie playbook, purge the government and claim a foreign power was trying to stage a coup giving you a pretext for war.
Whole armed Iran and gave them all that money. No surprises here.
There is a REASON the Pres of Lebanon resigned within an hour of meeting the King-To-Be, IN Saudi Arabia. He did not even wait to get home.
I wonder if Trump told the Saudi’s that ‘We have your back’ if push comes to shove with Iran?
Perhaps the Turks and Egyptians as well.
And didn’t Trump say something to the US military dudes about it being the calm before the storm?
Let them kill each other.
“I wonder if Trump told the Saudis that We have your back if push comes to shove with Iran?”
Saudi cannonfodders from the west and the east will be fighting this war. Hopefully, it is mostly the latter.
Shiite to hit the fan soon?
Probably hitting the fan - and beyond.
Could hit the stratosphere in the form of tiny particulate matter and blown east, causing more Shiite smog over China.
The high flying Shiite particulate matter could then reflect solar radiation back into space, causing the earth to cool.
In high volume, Shiite particulate matter pollution might then cause severe global cooling, triggering the resumption or next stage in our ice age.
And BAM! Global warming threat solved!
Someone needs to notify AlGore, the UN, and the Euro-weenie’s about this!
Way more credible a scientific theory than “carbon credits” having any impact!
We got this!
Went to fill my bed tanks on all my farm trucks today ..... I see another excuse to raise fuel prices in merica on the horizon .......
