    Saudi Oil Attack

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn...ack/index.html

    Potentially 5% of the worlds oil supply is disrupted. 10 drones apparently did the attack.

    Drones give the little guy a game changer.

    Welcome to the future. And back to the future, Trump just blamed Iran. Then told the Saudi's that he has his order pad ready to help with American made arms.

    Saudi Oil Attack

    It wouldn’t surprise me if it takes longer than expected to get this facility back online. Probably depends on what prices do. Prices could go down as this weakens Saudi control on supply.

    I remember reading Popular Mechanics three + decades ago talking about this, seemed so unreal at the time.

    Saudi Oil Attack

    Good thing Bolton aka "Mustache Man" is gone. That dude masterbates furiously to the thought of attacking Iran.

    Trump will do whatever Putin tells him to.

    Large Commercial UAVs are becoming a thing too. Here’s one made in Latvia. 10’ wingspan, 10kg payload, 20hrs flight time at 75mph, add cameras or sensors as needed.

    Cost is $50k which might be expensive for what may be a single-use delivery system

    I'm guessing it's no coincidence that this happens just days after Bolton is gone.

    Like a religious huckster such as Osteen, these terrorists get the word out they need money and people give them half the weeks food budget.
    They can afford the fancy drones.

    Fear it won't be long before this shit happens all over the world.

    A lot cheaper than a missile. Anything reported on how big the things used in the attack were or what they used for explosives?

    Thermite? Plastic explosives? A somewhat strong breeze (paging PureGravity)?

    Orders of magnitude cheaper. It's fucking easy to assemble something with GPS + inertial sensors for better location.. so far the cheap stuff has a short range but you can modify it for more battery capacity.

    I'm curious what type of drive was used. There's been evidence of ISIS using modified commercial/consumer drones for years

    These drone “swarms” are hard to defend against. Can radar even track a tiny drone? Or 50 of them?

    You can order them off Amazon.

    I have a feeling that the drones used were a lot bigger than the toy consumer drones we can all buy. Had to be to carry enough explosives to do such damage.

    The technology in even the small ones is what’s dangerous. The gps, the gyros, just set it and forget it. You can even use waypoints and different altitudes.

    Suicide drones just like the bombers.

    Hard to defend against, you have to shoot them until the whole thing blows up or crashes.

    A similar event could take out large sections of the US power grid. Heck you dont even need drones, mylar balloons will do it.

    Also this:

    They’re only going to get smaller/better... and any surveillance and armament tech that can be produced to defend against a swarm of those is going to also be terrifying in its potential for abuse.

    Is that my weed coming from the ups-amazon drone, or sweet death coming from the google-DEA assassination drone?

    I should put that sentence on a business card for when people are like “awww, you guys aren’t having any kids?”
