    Default Brink of War

    Looks like the Saudi Attack was by a combination of drones and cruise missiles.
    The cruise missiles may have been launched from Southern Iran.
    So what will happen if this becomes proven.
    My guess is Saudi retaliation and then further aggression from Iran.
    I hate to think what will happen next

    Yes Both have very powerful armies as they love killing each other since forever ... been have proxy war in throughout M.E so just the next step ... I really hope it simmers down as if USA gets involved then we seen Russia and could well escalate to another long drawn out World War with no winners

    No butts, hold no mutts, (unless they're the furry variety).

    After all, the Saudis have flirted with it in the past.

    Don't think the S400 would be any more useful if its set up to look into the wrong direction ... sounds like nobody expected an attack from the North.

    Other issue - both systems appear to be quite fine dealing with a limited number of rockets or drones ... but if you increase the number of (perceived) attackers they both will inevitably miss some of them. Add to that that drones are these days quite cheap - nothing stopping anybody to put a swarm of cheap commercial drones strategically into the air concealing some life attack drones ...
