Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has accused Iran of an act of "direct military aggression" by supplying missiles to rebels in Yemen.
This "may be considered an act of war", state media quoted the prince as telling UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in a telephone conversation.
On Saturday, a ballistic missile was intercepted near the Saudi capital. Iran has denied arming the Houthi movement, which is fighting a Saudi-led coalition backing Yemen's government.
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Monday that Saudi Arabia's "wars of aggression" and "regional bullying" were threatening the Middle East.

I suspect Iran’s reaction will be, “So? What are you going to do about it?” I wonder if Trump and the Saudi’s have gamed this situation. Saudi Arabia has a powerful military on paper. But it is badly led and hasn’t done well in Yemen. I think it’s fragile enough that it may break apart if things start to go badly. Even though Iran is heavily engaged in Syria, they can essentially put that conflict on hold and pivot towards Saudi Arabia. If they do indeed have nukes and the Saudi’s have said they have bought them from Pakistan, then this could get messy really fast. (The Saudis may or may not be telling the truth about the nukes.)
There ya go.
You can tell it’s getting pretty bad, when proxies have proxies.
Russia, Iran, Yemen,...
Some low yield nukes tossed about in the Arabian peninsula is just what the Clinton deep state needs to save itself from the front pages.
Ben Shapiro: At least 17 princes and top officials arrested in Saudi Arabia. Whats going on there?
Remember when all those libtards said missile defense was too hard, that it couldn't be done? Apparently now it is so routine that it barely rates a mention in passing in a bigger story. Every one of these intercepts is a practice round for when it really counts. When some whack job puts a WMD on the missile.
That particular ballistic shoot-down was done with new tech.
The Saudis have been seen recently firing kinetic weapons moving at 15x speed of sound.
Some think the new tech is from Israel after a massive infusion of $$ from gulf states for Israeli research.
There are videos of some strange new drones in the ME that seem to have no conventional system of propulsion and seem to somehow cause visual distortion when filmed???
IMO, we are going to see the Saudis takedown the Iranian mullahs very soon.
Read recent posting in this twitter feed...interesting stuff from a guy that seems to never be wrong.
The left is composed of a ship a fools. Spending their capital fighting CO2 levels, while us adults are shooting down missiles. The one commonality between all leftists is they hate humans. Anything that benefits humans must be stopped. Ie - Missile defense and essential plant gasses.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
An act of war. OK.
