The Yemeni Houthis have fired their new cruise missile, the Quds-2, at a Saudi Aramco oil company distribution station in the kingdom’s city of Jeddah, the group’s media news wing announced early on November 23. A spokesperson for the Armed Forces of the Houthi-led government, Yahya Sarea, said foreign companies and residents in Saudi Arabia should stay away from the military and oil infrastructure of Saudi Arabia as “operations will continue”. He emphasized that the missile precisely hit its target causing notable damage.

The Houthis claim that the Quds-2 is a new generation “winged missile” produced by their Missile Forces. As always, the missile was likely assembled thanks to technical assistance from Iran or Iranian-supplied components.  That facility is located southeast of Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport. Over the past years, the Houthis have repeatedly pounded the military section of the airport with missiles and drones. Therefore, it was just the question of time, when the nearby oil infrastructure would be hit.

At the same time, the Saudi side remains silent regarding the impact of the Houthi missile strike. This is an ordinary posture of Saudi Arabia towards Houthi missile and drone strikes. The Kingdom censors social media, denies any damage and claims that all targets were intercepted, if it appears possible and that no visual evidence of destruction are leaked immediately. Also, the main oil production and export facilities of Aramco are mostly in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, more than 1000km across the country from Jeddah. Therefore, Riyadh likely believes that it can silence another setback in the ongoing war with the Yemeni movement.

In September 2019, when the Houthis, with probable help from Iran, put out of service almost a half of Saudi oil infrastructure by hitting targets in Abqaiq and Khurais, the Kingdom was vowing a powerful response and the full destruction of Houthi missile and drone capabilities. However, a year later, the situation on the ground in Yemen for Saudi-backed forces became even worse and the widely-promoted ‘great Saudi victory’ over the Houthis turned into ashes.

In recent month, Saudi-led forces lost the battle for the Yemeni province of Bayda, and now they seem to be losing the battle for Marib. Recently they retreated from the key Maas Base and the route for the potential Houthi advance on the provincial capital is almost open. The denial of the facts on the ground and the air dominance of the Kingdom did not help it to achieve a victory in the war. In turn, it’s the Houthis who have put themselves in the position that allowed them to turn the tide of the conflict. With the current trend in the Yemeni conflict, Saudi Arabia will apparently have to pay an even bigger price for its intervention in the Arab country.

The Houthis have granted the Saudis the initiative to launch a massive war without the UN or International community being a hindrance

Thomas Osa Jeng

If that happens Iran will intervene

verner

they won’t have to. the saudis are financially stretched and can hardly rub two pennies together, what with the dividends they’ll have to pay to the fuckers that bought into the aramco ipo, with a guaranteed dividend for the investors. what a friggin larf!

Jens Holm

Thats crap too. What about rial and liras. Even Hesbollah use dollars.

farbat

actually things moved towards euros bitcoin and ir rial in that aspect because of sanctions on them and caesar sanctions on syria

Jens Holm

1001 holy nights of excuses, thats how You are.

Facts are You dont produce, not only for Your own, and by that has nothing of value apart from simple oil sales and dades for Chrismas.

… You lie and lie for Yourself and only You believe in those lies making Your deep dark state Yourself.

Syria is no state even it was planned as such. Today the parts drivien by Assads by fear and bajonettes for very good reasons wasnt there at all if it wasnt supported for Russias, Iranians and Hesbollahs having their own agenda.

…And the rest dont like the private property BEING owned by Assads. 1 of 4 Syrians are not even in the country. Thats a country.

Countries where I am are defied by taking care of its inhabitants, so they support it and elect the best of us to run it. We see non of that. I see none of that.

An d Assads and Turks even insist is neocolonial borders – part even made by a railroad. Then You are far out.

But Syrians also npot even liberated themself.

farbat

you do know that euro has overtaken dollar in west asia right?

Jens Holm

Fine with me, if its true. It represent a big GDP and can be trusted.

farbat

euro is the same fiat trash and even bitcoin will drop one day to zero value so what to say about the currency units we use nowadays in global trade

klove and light

dont worry….the houthis dont need no help DIRECTLY…….

in a open direct war between saudi arabia and iran……..the war would be over in less than 2 weeks…..that is the time when ALL 100% oil and gas infrastructure have been totally turned into ashes , and when that happens, in that second, the war is over because saudi arabia does not exist as a nation no more.period.even if they use their 5 to 8 nuclear bombs that pakistan HAD to give them because the house of saud sponsored the pakistani nuclear program.would not make a difference.the house of saud would gone on that very day.

gryzor84

Indeed. Iran has literally thousands of short-range supersonic assets of both cruise and ballistic types to gift the Saudis’ petrochemical industry. Fateh variants, Zulfiqars, Qaders, Hoveyzeh, etc… you name it. And I quoted only a handful types without counting the heavier class MRBMs such as the Ghadr, Emad and all-powerful MIRVed Khoramshahr but their order of battle won’t even have to go that far in deployment, the war will be over way before they reach that threshold. And the KSA knows it full well, and won’t ever have the folly of attacking Iran first, that’s why they’re currently so desperate at convincing uncle Sam’s Orange guy to do something before that ship finally sails. Ditto Nuttyahoo, his Zionist bro.

Jens Holm

And Saudis of course sit at lame ducks in their hands and has no friends. You write babling nonsense.

You even win a war and total destruction of Iran. Congratulations. You are a real winner.

Best regards Harry Truman and Co.

gryzor84

Poor little Holm. Still a master at nonsense and poor grammar. So many wasted words,again to strictly no avail.

Jens Holm

Very onesided having the enemy as hardly existing as military force.

Nothig wrong with Your primitive well spelled simplified lawyers language.

gryzor84

And some more meaninglessness coming from a man that missed my point entirely, pretty much like every, single, time he tried to communicated with me. Every. Single. Time. Besides, still having no clue whatsoever on military matters. Good on you. Keep the show running Holmsy. Either grammatical or intellectual, your failure is genuine.

Jens Holm

There is no point. Lining up weapons like that adding some local artificial bling just confirm, You dont know how small Iran is apart from local capabilities.

You are in the past in an everlasting dispute among each other, and thats it.

I can only recommend a wall around all of You west on Istanbul with only food in and oil out to fair prices.

I also can recommend the dependency to You and Russia lowers fx by wind and solarpower.

gryzor84

You just demonstrated you indeed no stricly nothing about force multipliers,order of battle, A2/AD, IADS, or even ABMs. You are actually the one reasoning in a vaccum without taking into account tactical characteristics of a theater and the types of assets involved. What ate the penetration capabilities of the Saudi airforce in case it wants to make forays into Iranian airpsace ? whatbis their stand-off attack potential ? do you know what kind of assets Iran has in the area to coubter those munitions ? where ate its bombers based ?how exposed is its principal F-15 airbase at the eastern side or the country against 50 to 100 SRMBs fired in distinct volleys ? how exposed are its vital tanker and Sigint force ? how well-protected are is infrastructure against volleys of ballistic or drone strikes ?Aramco once already was totally unable to detect or defend against a very simple attack with suicide drones that flew past its multi-billion dolllar Patriot and Thaad apparatus and all sruck their a
targets. What happens when a total war is triggered and Iran sends dozens of warheads and penetration aids from its underground missile bases ? How can the Saudis stop that ? even 10% successful hits mean bye bye oil and gas installations .What can its navy and coastal facilities do against Iran’s demonstrated anti-ship arsenal and capabilities ? Beating Iran in a war of attrition even if assumed possible for them though highly unlikely still doesn’t overcome the fact that they will lose their economy in a matter of days should hostilities start in a one-on-one scenario,which I based my theory on. You have zero clue about military matters yet you try to talk with the adults,that’s hilarius. Go play around kid and save the little dignity you might have left here.

Jens Holm

You only speak for military solutions.

I can tell You´for sure, if You even try that the USA and maybee we too will turn out any light and waterfacilty in Iran. You will ahve no bridges and railways as well.

Warmongols in any country should be killed first, so You are in the front line.

The best option for not being attacked are Your intensions and threats about nukes – but oh no – You prefare to lie to most of Your own people, which always unite people in fear and even raise more belivers if there are many extra graves.

And the result is clear. Jews and USA dont do You are kept low in most things. Your chosen system does it.

Now for a start make a few less missiles and make some land reforms. I saw some time ago, You hardly has enough food. Another solution should be less children.

Not even Saddam could stop, You now have 1000s and 1000s of unimployed Youngsters, where You even make it look nicer hardly counting the many women making children in the kitchens.

I will remind You we fast could make a lot to throw at Iran. We only use 2% of our budgets for warfare. If do, Iran very fast will be a dwarf.

We are low because we have chosen to make some kind of no war balance, so we instead takes better care of our countries and it families – and not at You assume – cant.

gryzor84

Asshole, the very premise of my discussion was about a purely military scenario involving a theoretical,reckless attack initiated by the House or Saud and its most probable immediate consequences and nothing else, so are you babbling about ?

I was not interesting in adressing socio-economics relating to Iran or the region as they obviously belong to another topic. Of course I could quote the growing 35% child poverty rate in Israel, its catastrophic brain drain and negative balance in yearly additions to its capita-per-diploma and falling immigration rates, or the OSCE blaming it for failing its membership standards for several years in a row, its financial dependency on US aid without which its whole economy would crumble in a semester,and so on. Or the Saudi budget deficit and growing unemployment despite their gigantic and disproportionate oil revenues flowing into the country for a population 50% of Iran’s enjoying 1/6th of its oil revenue,its lamentable lack of industrial base and independence from forein suppliers and knowhow,the total absence in high-technology students or academia, as well as, yes of course, Iran’s own endemic corruption aggravating the effect of unilateral sanctions on the cou try.

But even assuming if I did,I wouldn’t spend my valuable time doing so with simpletons such as yourself,I’ve made that mistake before,and never again will I fall for that trap.

Now all you did was to first try and miserably fail to belittle my understanding of military matters and then try to keep your head above water by pushing the dicussion completely off its tracks,making twice a fool of yourself in doing so.

Congratulations ,robot.

Jens Holm

That scenario dont exist.

I dont see the relevance about Israel. A link says https://www.timesofisrael.com/1-8-million-israelis-half-of-them-children-live-in-poverty-government/

Comparing with Saudis makes no sense as well. They just buy things and spend them on children too. The important thing for me is Their GDP pr capita and how they live.

If Pakistanis and others dont like the conditions there, they should go home and be more happy there.

We are like that https://www.terma.com/

Much as You live in WW1 or something. USA wont fight You with soldiers and waste lives. They mot likely will hit You with ballistics, so You will be like almost humans but with no arms and legs – and go nowhere.

gryzor84

Of cpurse that scenario does not exist, it’s precisely because that’s the definition of theory, in case you haven’t realized.

And by failing over and over again to accept or comprehend that,you look a little more intellectually inept at comprehending that abstract concept. As for the rest of your post :you actually talk to yourself, your “dialogue” is about you commenting your own assumptions and nothing else, which is your right, but you can’t waste other people’s time into that exercise in mediocrity. At least I won’t allow that for my own case.

Now feel free to continue talking to yourself while defending a racist Apartheid failing state and a backwards Salafist regime in one go, but don”t forget to hold a mirror, it’ll make it lok a bit less absurd.

Jens Holm

Those assumptions are not my own but normal thinking here. I write to the infected ones like Your kind seeing only, what Your are told and in very farmers and beduins versions. I also write to other readers here. This is no dating site.

You systematicly are told a lot of crap, so I try to explain infected morons like You and the ones with eyes and ears and not only a mouth, that things are not at all as You tell.

Im not defending, whats going on. YOU SAY I AM – AND EVEN BAME ME FOR IT. Thats creating Your own deep dark state. Here I prefare Our system, where we have many sources and hardly any censurship.

I commented, that Saudis are not alone. Are they if Iran attack hard.

I commented the many primitive and unproductive parts of Iran need reforms in agriculture and some few missiles could help You to grow much more foód.

Icommented, that just as Israel the Iran is the same kind of dot, but just a little bigger and less important.

And for Iran running a state by ancient men of Qam. Thats horrible. Womens right to be lower then men – thats Your culture – Thats not culture but old dirt of the worst kind.

And we see it here. Our Premiere Minister is a vomen and we have among the lowest dead ones for covid. Our economy is close to first class. we are very high in GDP. USA buy more from us then we sell to them. We also are capaple to take care of Iraniens, which has done things, which are normal rights here. Half of Our police districts are runned by women too. We also has much less people in jail then many as well as we dont execute people as You do – and often for what leagl here in Our culture.

You are the same kind of far out Islam as the different fractions in KSA. You even has a kind of a Pope for it. And You came from something very bad too. Thats Your culture? Yes it is.

gryzor84

Again with the irrelevant socioeconomics. There are better places to spend your time and energy promoting your country’s prowess instead of looking stupid with a totally off-topic argument in suh an unlikely place. Plus you’re comparing apples and oranges anyway in terms of geography, ressources,history and demography from one country to the other. There is the 1953 coup, there is the Shah and his son spoiling its ressources and destroying chances at a lasting democracy that Iran once had, plus the unilateral , immoral and totally illegal sanctions regime aggravating the misdeeds of the current Islamic regime,tje 8 years of devastating war with Saddam, and you compare it to a centuries-old industrial power that never faced that kind of historical spasms or fractures in the modern ages that the likrs of Iran had to endure, and at the contrary enjoyed a massive colonial era to cumulate ressources and manpower to further evolve. Your talking points are futile,commercial balance mean nothing here and demonstrate zero relevance to the topic of this particular thread that you obessively try to push off its original tracks while distorting or ignoring everything others say and cetering it around your own. You’re some sort of maniac I would say. A robotic maniac.You’re mashing up a thousands topics cobbled together in a way that would to satisfy some kind of strange national pride issue you want to spit everywhere around in a place nobody even cares. Go play elsewhere.

gryzor84

And by the way, moron, the current theocracy is not “my culture”, nor it is the culture of most Persians. Iranian society actually prides itself defying the derelict ways of the Islamic rulers and I’m glad being on their side, so don’t you open your filthy mouth on matters that are beyond you by such as large margin, as for example my personal complexity when it comes to addressing my native Iran.

If it wasn’t for CIA’s infamous Operation Ajax in 1953 against the Middle-East’s first elected parliamentary democracy headed by Dr. Mossadegh after he wanted to nationalize the country’s ressources, we would still be a regional beacon for social progress to this day. But even as they stand with all the impediments to their daily lives, women in Iran represent 60% of cadres and teachers, all the way to university and even the defense complex. Before talking nonsense and spittin crude hate on our culture and history you should at least have the dignity to do a modicum of research on basic Iranian realities.

But that would of couse be too much asking from the typical kind of simpletons like yourself.

You proved utterly incapable of distinguishing sovereignty issues from internal political institutions and governance. Those are two separate topics, struggles and one doesn’t exclude the other. The Iranians have a right to democracy and living in dignity with leaders that deserves their free votes, but that doesn’t mean they should accept to be punished collectively and see their national integrity violated by an external enemy such as Zionist Israel or Salafist Saudi Arabia using the current regime as a pretext to harm Iran as a people and a nation. We are no fools about their real intend trying to quell a powerful force to reign supreme in the region in its place.

You can choke on the dream of US soldiers ever setting foot on Iranian soil again, with or without a democracy there.

farbat

man you are so clueless about our capabilities and the most idiotic thing is that you all dont understand what the a2ad of iran is about and in fact if saudis would successfully launch a hit on iran they would receive 100 hits in return and all assets that they would have brought into air would not be able to land on any airports anymore and they themselves would probably not exist for long

Joao Alfaiate

Do not under estimate the control of the tribe over “I am a Zionist” Biden. His foreign policy appointees are either Jewish or have a long history of advocating support for israel and US intervention in the Middle East or both.

Jens Holm

Yerrrh, we are about 1 billion jews in the world and too many morons like You.

We raise children to decide themself being more independent. We make schools, educate them, we let them find their skils and reward payd pr hours as well.

And it pays of, which is not only visible in GDP but also in a longer life using our hands and brains so we are not like You.

You lowlifers dont. You limit any devellopment and even makes Your women more stupid then Yourself.

Most muslims has not even been reading in the Choran, so old men can decide, what people think is true. The prayers should start with “We are told its written and Our faith is based on illiterate old men are told by illeterate old men”.

We have translated the Choran to Danish, so Our incommers can read, what written.

And … USA has supported Israel since 1948 or something, so Bidens are just as the others. There is no american intervension. USA has been in the ME in big numbers since they started help to the Bolsjevics by Abadan giving them trucks, airplanes and a lot of almost everything.

uch is not a succes but what abot Your own handling.

I will also remind You that USA actually has taken the mainparts of Jews into USA and from about 1870. hey are a very good extra for USA and not as several others describe them as some minus ones at Your level.

Joao Alfaiate

Jews are great for the USA. Just look at the achievements of Bernie Madoff, Harvey Weinstein, the Sacklers, Jeffrey Epstein, etc., etc. to say nothing of israel Firsters like Perle, Wolfowitz, Feith, Judith Miller, etc., etc. who got the US to invade Iraq for israel’s benefit.

Joao Alfaiate

“You lowlifers…” You mean Brazilians and Portuguese?

Ashok Varma

The whole US establishment is embedded with Zionists and the military industrial complex. Biden will follow their instructions even more vigorously than Trump. He will also be more confrontational with Russia while appeasing China.

Jens Holm

And we love it.

Whats the alternative??? Living like You – hahahahahahahhahahahahahhahahahah…

Jens Holm

A stupid comment. Saudis never are alone.

farbat

hahahaha yes they were never alone while they failed and failure they all share in common also being humiliated they share

farbat

you dont seem to understand what is going on but in a few years when you are around still you might be able to hit yourself on your head and wonder how ignorant you were about things which are so obvious looking at it in hindsight

Jens Holm

Well, go on.

As long as you kill each other, You dont come here even coffins can have wheels.

farbat

people really dont understand how iran fights wars and iran doesnt fight aggressive military forces directly and some are sad because iran doesnt directly go at its enemies in their view but in fact you cant fight more direct than iran because iran goes to the homes of the soldiers who are in west asia because it figures out all their names and addresses and iran messes up their ability to even think straight if its necessary because iran fights societies not armies to win a war

Mark M. Nobelman

lol. it is like believing in snow white

verner

doubt that – saudi Iran can neuter in seconds flat so they have a bigger fish to fry, the jews in palestine and given the threats and murders and aggressions emanating from tel aviv/jews in palestine, Iran is entirely entitled to plan for and execute the final blow to the jews in palestine. you might say, the jews in palestine have brought it on themselves with their hubris and relentless threats and murders and genocide on the palestinian people and the operation of concentratio camp Gaza – good to see at least one party standing up to a people which long ago forfeited the right to be a part of mankind.

Joaquin

While saudis may achieve some initial victories as it happened with the offensives for al Hudaydah, in the long run they’ll deplete their forces and pave the way for a total defeat.

The only way for them to achieve something significant would be to bring in a new and very powerful party in my opinion

Concrete Mike

Dont bother answering this peice of crap troll.

He advocates for yemeni genocide on behalf of the zionists.

Jens Holm

And You?

This nobelman is twin retard of jens, both best be ignored.

He is troll with limited grasp of English or even rudimentary awareness of reality about Yemen.

Ashok Varma

I think he has multiple accounts and just trolls for any attention.

Jens Holm

You certainly use many years to solve things there. There has been war there since I remember and alwas the good guyes against the good guyes. Even the Gods are on both sides.

My english is real english and not some tranlation of what limited languages like the ones in ME can do added a lot of Halals, Harams and smoking in the middle. I dont spell well, but as I can see, You get what I write.

And You dont like it. Thats a very big pluss, so thank You. I am a normal western person not limited by, what I wrote above.

Now lets talk about womens right and why they are raised for buy and sale – oh no.

Lets talk about education, so You dont remain in Your own selfcreated deep dark state – oh no

Lets talk about Our vomen making more GDP then the Saudis and Yours making none.

And I do know Yemen better then most, because my sources are not cencured by dirty nationalisme and Islam in its worst driven by despotes handling You as objekts and såendable sheep.

You are like this about facts, even I assume You have internet:comment image

Proud Hindu

Stfu danish idiot.Life isnt just about gdp and women.There are different cultures.Learn to respect or fuck off

Jens Holm

To us culture is women and men has the same rights and under the same conditions can educate and produce side by side.

Loook at the Iranian unimplyment rate. . .

Here women makes 22.000 sollars of Our GDP.

We also dont raise Our women for buy and sale. You say they are like cows and cars. Is that the culture You protect? Yes it is.

So I am against the dirty infecte parts of Islam driven by old men for own purpose also making boys as obeying sheep not leeting them know their potentials as well as being connected and inetgrated to the rest of the world.

Respect also seemes to be Iran sending ballaistic missiles at danish soldiers asked in by Bagdad as teachers and helpers for their milatary forces by Nato.

So yes, before many danish teacher-soldiers was wounded for life there, I kind of didnt care. I do care know with a biiig minus.

verner

they’ve had advisors on how to conduct the Yemen war, these jews from palestine have failed in their advisory roles and will soon have to pack it in.

Jens Holm

I invented this: You cant make camels fly, even they want to.

Your local muslims almost all are raised to be bad soldiers. The best solution by that is to find something You are better for.

Not even Muhammed could make miracles there:)

occupybacon

The best Saudis could do, have already done. Other than surrender.

verner

you’re too friggin pessimistic – the saudi’s can’t do squat about the houthis, first of all they lack the wherewithal and second of all, they can bomb but this war is won on the ground, foot soldiers and the saudis can’t afford to pay the mercenaries from sudan etc.

Mark M. Nobelman

All these ragtags say the same thing the Kurdish were saying this and the Armenians but once the ground operation begins they fold and cry out for International support. Same story rinse and repeat

the issue is that you know how badly you are doing after all you have like this small usurped land without security while the limit for you to sustain yourself would have been atleast the sinai aswell as lebanon but today you cant even call “israel” a nation without turning yourself into a joke

well, what you call israel is bound to be squashed like the rotten lemon it is. I call the occupying people ‘jews in palestine’ and they are counting the days to their demise.

Jens Holm

Saudis acually has for years.

Putin Apologist

So you think the Saudis have been holding back? I doubt the Saudis have the necessary means on their own to defeat the Houthis. Maybe if they could get Egyptians but on their own there is no way.

Frank

Egypt will not repeat the defeat of 1960s in Yemen.

Jens Holm

yerrh, Gamel Abded was there. He was in Syria as well.

All of You certainly do Your best.

Hard to see Houtis are the succesfull ones unless You have a very good microscope.

Telling others are fiascos dont make the other ones succesfull. More like the people living there all are looser and You keep Ypur low standards well.

Who are the winners in t.ex. Syria. Well as can see it, its the dead ones finaly having peace:(

You dispute about the wrong things. You should talk about making betters systems, where things like this dont happen.

And if any outsider tell, what You could or should change, You all say NO take Your silly flag and continue acting as You have.

And dont tell Houtis might be modern people for progress. They are not better but just different.

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

Like the Soviets and the Americans would not repeat the UK’s defeat in Afghanisatn?

Joao Alfaiate

The Egyptians had 70,000 troops in the Yemen in the mid 60s and could not defeat royalist tribesmen. The Egyptians bombed the heck out of civilians in Marib; the ruins (“Old Marib”) can still be seen today. MBS’ decision to attack the Yemen is a disaster almost as big as the US invasion of Iraq.

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

MBS’ decision to attack the Yemen is a disaster almost as big as the US invasion of Iraq.

With 1 difference: the U.S. could afford it financially, Saudi cannot.

Even a basketcase like Pakistan refused to send mercenaries to fight for the hated Saudis. Most Muslims have total contempt for Saudis, even Indian Muslim hate them for mistreating Asian labour.

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

“Basket case” Pakistan’s army could, with all its soldiers having 1 hand tied behind their back, destroy the entire Saudi war machine. A “basket case”? Hmmm …

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

What has the Egyptian army done that makes you say that?

Frank

Frankly, you are an uneducated idiot who does not realize that Saudis and NATO have been stuck in the Yemen quagmire for over six years now. There is nothing more they can do than bomb more schools and wedding parties and kill children of Yemen.

hahahaha you are so stupid its no use to talk to the likes of you its like trying to teach a baby something complex like thermodynamic or geology or even arithmetic its beyond the poor little baby brain just like the issue of civilization is beyond you and the idea of hierarchy based social order is basically totally beyond you since you dont seem to understand how 1% parasitically sit on top of the 99% which is why you dont understand that you are a dying host body yourself

farbat

the problem of irans enemies is that they underestimate humanity and that is why they hate the so called “mullahs” so much because its like the zionist retired generals say “if iran isnt stopped they will always outsmart us and they will always outsmart america” even thou america the entity is basically a company running like a machine totally lacking humanity while the zionist entity is parasitical and without host body unsustainable in its nature so not do they just hate iran they badly envy it for the things it owns but doesnt even focus on

Jens Holm

Its internal crap of Your own.

We try to be or work for something like this

…And whats wrong with a system which actuallly produce what the same people, whích work and do it need???

Even zionists are not parasites, They contribute like anyone else. Your idea about zionists dominating here and in the world is some kind of fata morgana.

Those very few millions dont domaniate as You learn each other as excuse for being ineffective lazy bums Yourself. They are like and often in the high end, because theyedyúcate themselves as we do.

You dont educate Yourself for improvements, because You have blocket Yourself. Dont blame Jews and us – the 99%. majority for being less blocked and in a different way, we have voted for year after year.

It seemes as if You have no idea about Our life here and all of us, which have a good and long life.

Looks like you even believe the crap you are posting. An outside view on this might help you. Don’t believe the shit from the spin doctors. Put your own brain at work, and check facts on correctness.

farbat

hahaha you are so laughable that is when a person speaks who belongs to a fake entity a so called project state a nothing made of nobody wild savages who got enslaved by the entity you call globalists nowadays which originated in egypt but anyway you miserable dont even understand how hard you will have it going forward in fact we iranians are the only hope for you not to get swallowed up and eradicated by the masses flooding to you from all the other continents since we are basically what you call a civilization and compared to you bunch we are sustainable for millenia while you are nothing but mayflies on your own without the globalist entity basically keeping you sustained

Don’t understand what you’re trying to say.

Lost Empire

Saudi camellias morons are the shitty soldiers in the word. US, UK, Israel, France and thousands of mercenaries fight for them against Houthis, but they aren’t able to win. Without the helping and technology of all these morons Houthis would be already conquered all Saudi “SHITTY” Arabia

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

Have they? How so?

Jens Holm

They havnt.

Facts are there has been several negosiations, so UN and others at least could give the many victims some food. That has had its up and downs.

I dont care for any of them, but a good example too is Houtis took the free food and medical care they needed themself – And next sold the free UN help to the locals.

im sure Houtis has done like that several times and KSA dont hold back as well.

Even more pathetic at war-fighting than I would have thought in my most pessimistic assessments. The Saudis truly raise the bar in depths of possibly achievable mediocrity. one of the most sophisticated and expensive air apparatus in the region if not the world, doubled with top-notch western intelligence support, yet their ground forces loose vast swatches of key areas to a guerrilla force. Pa-the-tic. And unbelievable.

true, they can bomb wedding parties and such things but are useless once on the ground and that is why the houthis will win.

Again Patriot missile have been missing…

BMWA1

B/C it is known they are NOT a serious weapon!

verner

but expensive and nice to look at, something mbs is fond of. think fake da vinci gloria mundi at 450m bucks. what a larf.

Saudis and over a dozen of their western and Zionist handlers have lost miserably in Yemen, despite NATO and US air support, logistics and even planning. Saudis could not fight their way out of a paper bag.

Ashok Varma

Saudis have a bigger defence budget than India and have suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of battle hardened Houthis, who are some awesome warriors.

Jens Holm

I dont see Saudis are defeated.

It also makes no sense to compare those countries at all.

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

You mean that starting this war 5 years ago the Saudis are winning but can’t end the war? Once again, you talk out of your backside.

Jens Holm

I never wrote that. You read things as You wish and even conclude and blame by that :(

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

You say you don’t see them defeated. But since it is they who started the war that they said they would finish in a couple of months, and 5 years later the war is till ongoing with no victory in sight, the conclusion is that you imply they are winning.

You obviously don’t even understand your own comments ?

Icarus Tanović

This is turning into Wahhabi Saudi Vietnam day by day.

Jens Holm

As long as You kill eacjh other, You dont come here. Maybee I should donate Saudis some, so they can kill more of You, and if the Iranian oblast is lood´sing send some of our many refugees back to You, so You can use them as spendables there too.

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

Still rambling ?

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

It already is. And it is draining their coffers.

Jens Holm

Iranians has no money, they have rials. Soon they wil use dollars too.

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

Nope, they won’t be using dollars for 2 reasons:
1. they don’t want to,
2. even if they wanted to the U.S. would not let them.

Jens Holm

We dont care about dwarfs ike Yöu and they do.

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

“We”? Oh, have you been promoted to spokesperson for all commenters here? If so, please show me a link to the confirmation. If not, I suggest speak on your own behalf only and keep your “we” arrogance to yourself.

farbat

what is your obsession of the dollar you retard anyway you heard of bitcoin right so why should iran ever use the dollar if something convenient like the bitcoin exists

Jens Holm

I have no ebsession for dollar. But the main critisme comes from the ME parts, which has money hardly ga´having any value.

They daysly predict a dollar collapse, but they already almost are collapsed themself or the value goes down, down down..

Lebanon Lira, Syrian Lira,Rial and Turkis Lira. Tempting to ass the Rubel as well.

Bitcoins probatly are fine too. I just fint it too risky.

farbat

you are just sooo stupid its amazing

Jens Holm

Iran is a dot in my world just a little bigger then Israel.

Their influence in the world as its worst are the maný refugees they make.

Selbstdenker

Just visit Iran and cross check your prejudice.

Jens Holm

I dont need that. I can read several newspapers about it and also from the countries nearbye as well as statistics from the world.

Sure, I dont know everything, but I do know a lot.

you are stupid and you dont know a thing but of course you know alot right and that is about nothing

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

And your world, buddy, is only your world. Keep the details of your world to yourself. Who gives a “love-making” about your world?

Jens Holm

Thats exactly what the kreationisme in Iran does about us. I tell they lie all the time and create a highly biased enemy picture.

Im so tired about Your kind. This eccochamber and its many parrot copy pasters even has revenge from before Aysia went to Basra.

And no, You dont decide anything for me here. I dont know if You are a persian carpet or cat for the Ayatollah, but the world I live in is much better, then the lies here tell each other based on nationalistic science fiction of the worst kind.

I tell You, You have choises and I will continue that even Your too often are little boys, because I see right here not all are.

And yes, Our world or parts of it is dangerous. Its muh more safe for You to unite in fear by bajonets.

#'~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

Bwa ha ha: the echo chamber is you baby. You get brainwashed with Western prop and regurgitate like a loyal parrot because you are unable to think independently.

Pave Way IV

The attack itself just torched one of the big tanks at the terminal. No casualties reported, but there was a chaotic Saudi chimp stampede out of the facility during the attack. Several chimps are still missing, but banana traps have proved useful in the past to lure the monkeys back home.

U.S. has removed its four Patriot batteries from Saudi Arabia. KSA Air Defense has six battalions of their own. Battalion = 4 batteries (in U.S. Army). They do have a Patriot system defending Mecca but that radar doesn’t have engagement coverage towards the coast as far as Jeddah (it can only detect them that far out). Even if Jeddah did have a Patriot, there’s still the questionable value they would have against cruise missiles. Patriots were made for aircraft and ballistic missiles, not drones or low-flying cruise missiles. No doubt the Saudis have some kind of point air defenses for Jeddah, but those would be mid-range U.S. Hawks or French Shahine systems, even more questionable against a modern cruise missile.

From the paper above, it’s clear that the Saudi chimps really don’t have any workable strategy to counter Houthi missiles. Ooops!

Jeddah isn’t shown above, but it’s on the Red Sea coast closest to Mecca – about 60km..

Vary informative graphic, thank you. Actual, even publicly available data on disposition of forces has always been a weakness in my personal research when it comes to assessing the balance of power.

Pave Way IV

And all sides lie about nearly everything that happens there, so who knows.

Randomly stumbled on the CSIS report from a Google search on the latest attack. Saudis and UAE have always been very tight-lipped about Yemen. I was most surprised to see that until their mid-2019 withdrawal, the UAE had Patriot units inside Yemen at the Port of al Mocha and somewhere in Marib (military base, refinery and power plant). They also had one at the al Anad airbase on the southern coast at times.
