    Somebody else is up for re election on a much tighter time frame as well wouldn't put it past him either... But I love a good conspiracy and I have no information to collaborate any of this

    Maybe we can agree to not post additional pics unless of great value. This one ☝️ is pretty delightful on the timeline

FWIW, odds are it was a mom and pop appliance place that drove the part over to the Amazon fulfillment center late last night. No way the local hub has dozens of gas log fireplace blowers on hand.
    Still not sold on drone delivery yet though. Gonna be a whole lot of busted shit dropped on peoples' porches before they get that ironed out.
    Don’t you have a kid? But your willing to contribute to a huge carbon footprint just for the convenience of next day delivery? Why are you lot sold on the drone delivery? It would likely have a smaller imprint than gas trucks driving all over the fucking place to make American consumers happy they don’t have to wait for a skier more carbon efficient delivery.

    We are not going to war with Iran, and defiantly not over a improvised attack against a non-NATO or five-eyes country who is currently in a proxy war with Iran.

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

    Saudis could attack Karg. Or disrupt Iranian export traffic. Or send a bunch of suicide bombers to Iraq proxy-style.

    The leash is not a petrochemical, but nuclear one. US knows the saudi ambitions to aquire nuclear knowhow (and reactors...and weapons) and they know it would be the proverbial can of worms in the middle east. Currently saudis can milk US with this approach. Even if both know that saudis would go public with their nuclearisation program, US would start to change the regime.

    It's all speculative:

    - There's evidence the strike might have originated in Iraq or even Iran. Mike Pompeo says there's no evidence the attacks came from Yemen

    - The attack might not have been drones at all

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

    Stretching them out does not go anywhere near Yemen. I've been known to take bad bearings, but I doubt these came from inside Iran. Probably fired from a ship.

    Senior U.S. official to ABC:
    "Iran launched nearly a dozen cruise missiles and over 20 drones from its territory in the attack on a key Saudi oil facility."

    Fixed it for you. We will be going to war with Iran, North Korea, or both in about a year the way things look right now. Bolton was probably canned for wanting to play that Trump card too soon.

    I mean, the Saudis do know how to plan for and fly planes into buildings.

    Plus the profits they probably made on all the crude futures they bought before the attack.

    Also, what's the chance Elon Musk is behind all this? They probably have a secret drone mfg facility at the Gigafactory.

    Puregravity did an excellent job ferreting out the cable mystery at Sea to Sky. We should put him on this one.

    I thought one of the key features of drones and cruise missiles was that they didn't have to fly in a perfectly straight line to hit their mark. They can turn and change directions pretty easily. Doing so helps them evade countermeasures... and could make the launch site more difficult to ascertain..

    Seems pretty thin. More likely that the last couple kilometers were traveled from that direction due to an exploitable gap in defenses at the facility.

    So, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't we achieve energy independence by fracking the shit out of the place so we didn't have to get into some shooting war in the middle east?
