  1. Wag the dog, Mike, wag the dog.

  2. Preventing this is an elementary electronic battle management application. How much has Saudi spent on USA stuff? Some score of people in military related leadership are failing the planning test.

  3. To put things in perspective: “The World’s Oil Glut Is Much Worse Than It Looks”…OPEC and its allies have been using the wrong target for draining excess stockpiles. As a result, they may have to consider longer and deeper cuts. (Bloomberg 9/9). Or maybe conveniently timed drone strikes…? https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-09-08/the-world-s-oil-glut-is-much-worse-than-it-looks?srnd=premium

    “Violent actions against civilian areas and infrastructure vital to the global economy only deepen conflict and mistrust”

    But the day in, day out indiscriminate bombing of civilian areas by the Saudi air force in Yemen is just fine.

    Ultra-cheap drones. Maybe they come from Yemen? Maybe from the totally opposite direction of Iraq? Maybe they come from Saudi Arabia itself? Who knows? But they reverse peace talks with Iran AND boost the price of oil? It’s Jeffery Epstein in its level of serendipity.

    Apparently Israel has the ability to detect drones and is able to observe drone-related activities, thus, one wonders why the Saudis either don’t have that capability, or why are they allowing drone attacks to occur, and to apparently become a threat to global energy production? This smells super fishy, as in price manipulation and a way to play war games with Iran — making this act a pre-election focus, which will overshadow anything The Boneheads do (or don’t). This does set a stage for a new round of tension, but one has to believe the Saudis have plans in place for attacks and they must have security efforts in place and it’s hard to believe they were unaware of this type of situation, because this is their F’ing business!

    From a few weeks ago:

    ==> Conricus said the military had been monitoring the Iranian plot for “a number of weeks.”

    When the IDF spotted the Iran-led team — made up of the four IRGC advisers and Shiite militiamen — moving to launch the drones on Saturday night, the Israeli Air Force took action and bombed their base.

    A satellite image distributed by Israeli private intelligence firm ImageSat International showed that the compound had been completely destroyed.
