Saudi Arabia is not an ally. They might pay 350 billion to buy arms from America, but they do not share American values of freedom, democracy, respect, tolerance.

Ha!
Or else what?

Is Yemen going to invade us?

That's even funnier than North Korea. At least NK has a functioning military.


Yeah.... But still, Yemen is being oppressed by SA, and the US is helping SA bomb the heck out of them. At least Yemen is defending itself.

Yemen's former president Saleh was ousted in the Arab spring revolution. Saleh promptly placed his vice president Hadi in power in an uncontested election. Hadi was ousted again. Saudi Arabia tries to put Hadi back in power, to no avail so far.

Alliances are made based on common interests, not common values.

And the arms deal isn't for $350B. It's $110B, with the POTENTIAL for $350B over 10 years.

America should ally with Iran rather than Saudi Arabia the way Obama did. Iran is a republic. Saudi Arabia is not.

Again, common interests. Iran might eventually normalize relations with the US, but I doubt we'd see an alliance any time soon. Too much bad history between them. Being a Republic or a Kingdom doesn't change those common interests.

Omg seriously? I have no great love for SA, but your warm and fuzzy Iranians are the biggest backers of terrorism worldwide, in fact long before you were probably born they kidnapped and held hostage a number of Americans in 1976 or so...for Godsakes

Iranians are far more open and friendly compared to Saudis. There are thousands of Iranians students studying in the west. There are hardly any Saudi students studying in the west. Iranians are Indo Europeans. Saudis are not. Iranians have never killed an westerners. Saudis have.

Wrong. They're Persian.

Indo-European is a pseudo-scientific classification that has no basis in reality.

Besides genetic make-up should not determine foreign policy.

Interestingly enough, Trump's son in law was just negotiating an arms deal with Saudi that included ballistic missile defense. The price was too high so Jared called the head of Lockheed Martin and asked if they could lower the price. They said they'll think about it.

Now we learn Yemen is using ballistic missiles before Trump's visit. How convenient.


Wow, now THATS interesting.

Take that to the news man. Stuff like that needs to be reported.

Persians are Indo Europeans. Semitic languages have the h sound. Indo European languages do not.

There are more as well. They're using the Patriot right now, which isn't as capable. This isn't a case of "we're interested in THAAD" followed by "oh look, they suddenly used ballistic missiles on us, make THAAD cheaper". They have a need of a capable anti missile system.

False.


Iranians have never killed an westerners. Saudis have.


They prefer to handle their ways by proxy; support those that will willfully and willingly kill Westerners...there are always those that portray Iran as if they have clean hands.

Got anything stating the capital was hit? Your source is just guessing it was hit.

Western MSM is on Saudi payroll. They won't report it. Al Masdar News has contacts on the ground and they know about it.

Iran backed Shia militia such as Lebanon's Hezbollah and Iraq's PMU never target westerners in western countries. The only times they attacked westerners is against servicemen who were occupying Lebanon and Iraq to make them leave.

Think asymmetrical warfare, must I remained you , that a group of ragtag cave dwellers caused us much pain, and changed our society for the worst..a process still on going.

Ok ok... I can't shoot the messenger.

So what stinks about this. A Missile managed to land in Riyadh Saudi Arabia from somewhere in Yemen. So there is 550 miles of flight from the Yemeni Border.

So the Yemen Government has the tech to pull this off? Not buying it. Was it aquired by a foreign government... IRAN... South Korea...

And who launch this Missile? Yemen Government or the Terrorists within it's Borders. 🙄
Neither one has the funds to do this. Especially against Saudi Arabia if they know whats coming.

This has to be BS.
