    or, crude, theoretically, should be more expensive.

    Saudis ask a country with a functioning military to help. Houthi rebels, partial rulers of the poorest country in the ME, managed to disable Saudi defenses (Patriot Missles) & lob cruise missiles at Riyadh Int'l Airport (last year) and now successfully attack Ab Qaiq (largest oil facility in teh world). It's deeply embarrassing for the Saudis & reveals just how inept they are at anything beyond buying expensive shit in Europe.

    Here's your Houthi drone force (that thing in front of the soldier, not what's behind him)

    Saudis use US-supplied weapons to bomb Houthis, Houthies retaliate with avionics and duct tape

    From this article, Houthi drones have a better success rate than the missiles, and much more success hitting oil infrastructure than other targets.

    Chapeau to the Houthis. Would love to learn more about they pulled off this attack. That was some real can-do shit.
    Are there even air defense systems around these installations?

    Just started a thread in polyass, was remarking that it would be SO ironic for Bolton to have been pushed out just before some bombs drop...

    I was talking about art, flats & cars. Saudis don't have the work ethic or competence required to actually operate much of the machinery we give them. They're ornaments. Saudi 'power' is an illusion insofar as it relates to military capability.

    Supposedly there are patriot installations. But Houthis flew drones into the patriots protecting Riyadh before & bombed their main international airport last year so that line of defense has been demonstrated to be penetrable. Thinking about it now maybe the Riyadh airport attack was a test run for Ab Qaiq?

    The relationship is far closer than I'd like to see it but that's not really accurate. Saudi is a corrupt & backward cousin that tends to get into stupid situations (see: 9/11). If convenient USA might help, but talk or economic jawboning is where I guess DC's response ends. Saudis are on their own in the ME; we have our own oil. Soon enough the region will flare up as the post-US era necessitates a bit of noise around rebalancing power. Iran is and always has been the more competent of the two, though it has all kinds of problems.

    Oh, yeah, and, if this doesn't prove it, what will. Like Yemen is some sort of military power. It's some dirt poor desert country stuck between the Sauds and water. They've been bombing the shit out of the poor Yeminis for, what, a few years now, with whatever cool military toy that we can provide them, the latest and greatest, and they hit back like this? Jezuz.

    Iran's main problem is us. And Israel. Same thing.
