    Is there still an appetite for this? But if we must, I'd prefer we wait until all 2019-20 skiwear has shipped.

    I’m good on that front. New jacket last year and I ordered domestically produced skis that should ship any day now - The Jerantulas.

    That ski producer may or may not have been conscripted into a Buddhist ministry.

    I don't haz good feeling about two of the more powerful ME countries openly fighting.
    Just looking at the map this Abqaiq place seems a lot closer to the Persian Gulf, Iraq & Iran than Yemen.

    I wonder if Mr. Bone Saw posts on ski forums. They do have a ski area.

    - The Houthi used cruise missiles based on an Iranian design in a June 2019 attack

    https://www.armscontrolwonk.com/arch...et-the-quds-1/
    From MV's link, we're talking cruise missiles with range up to 1350 km. But pictures of one crashed in the desert suggest a less efficient engine and hence lower range. Pretty much rules out a Yemen launch origin.

    If the pictures showing the Quds 1 wreckage in Saudi Arabia are indeed connected to the recent Abqaiq attack, it would seem more likely that the attack originated from a place closer to Eastern Saudi Arabia than Northern Yemen Ė potentially Iraq, Iran or perhaps even from ships. But then again that is a big if at the current moment.
    Also, given there's nothing interesting to the west of Abqaiq, the cruise missiles may have cruised from another direction turning near the target. Or the Saudis were really bad at noticing a fleet of launcher trucks outside Riyadh and still haven't found them.

    Tip for PG - Persian Gulf is among the closest launch locations, and being salt water - shark habitat.

    Iím pretty sure the US of A can track a pigeon around the Persian gulf.

    They know. Wether they tell us the truth? Is a whole different story.

    Itís funny how this attack is taken as such a massive hit. The US is posturing for conflict, everyone is talking about how this could cause armed conflict between various groups of countries, etc. Yet there are no casualties. They hit the thing in the ME the US actually cares about oil. Never has it been so obviously clear what the USís true intentions are.

    You are aware that the facility has/had an output of 7 million bpd? That's on the order of 1973 oil market disruption.

    Or let me guess, that’s some hipster bullshit.

    Oof, no, I don't believe I've ever owned a pair of Vans. It should also be noted that while I do have a style, there is irrefutable evidence out there that I don't have style.
