Saudi Arabia intercepts ballistic missile northeast of Riyadh - reports

Recommended Posts

Yay - I beat TMT to it!

https://www.rt.com/news/408804-saudi-intercept-missile-riyadh/

Nothing bar the title yet but is this the Yemen proxy conflict between Iran and Saudi losing the proxy?

Edit:

Unconfirmed reports have emerged suggesting that a ballistic missile launched from Yemen was intercepted near Saudi Arabia’s capital, Riyadh. There have also been reports of a loud explosion heard at the capital’s airport.

Give me a break. Took me ages to light the blue touch paper. I need to lie down now.

This is siginificant because it means that Iran is now supplying bigger missiles to the Yemeni 'rebels'.

Of course, it could all be rubbish and made up by the Saudis who are desperate to get the US to have a pop at Iran, re-introduce the embargo on Iran and stop Iranian oil exports which, ahem, would push the price of oil up and enable Saudi to sell off their oil company before the oil runs out.... Gosh, that is a long sentence...

Oh good.  If they are wiped from the face of the earth, they will not be able to fund the mosques that promote terrist attacks on uk soil. 

Every cloud and all that 

Having been to KSA, i do not believe the people think like that.

Riyadh is quite a distance from the Yemen border so it is a fair way for a missile to travel.

 

Supposedly it exploded near the airport so bloody good shot all things considered. My first thought is false flag.

What next - a missile lands in the diplomatic quarter killing lots of American and British families?

Are they not funding the Sunni mosques in the uk?  Are not many of these mosques hotbeds of radicalisation?  Weren't those who carried out the attack on the twin towers Saudi?  Wasn't bin laden Saudi?  

Sorry pinny but I've no sympathy whatsoever. 

Obviously, I was not important enough to deal with the government, just ordinary people.

Oh look - Trump is supposedly pleading that the Saudis to IPO their oil company on the NYSE and not on the FTSE.

There's a dilemma for the Guardian - evil City of London or evil Trump?

Oh look - TMT in VERY cynical mode - someone just happened to be standing outside of his car pointing his camera at some building and happens to captures the Saudi anti-missile missiles launching.

Oh Pinny why are you so naïve to think that government policies ever reflect the desires and wishes of the people?

Pinny is a kind and genuine soul who does not see bad in people. It's a strength rather than a weakness. 

I sometimes wish I was less cynical.

I know, people are not bad, but we all have the potential to commit evil and it becomes very evident when people are in a position to exert control.

      Are the Russians a bit slow off the mark? Or don’t care?  Surely they must realize that all they need to do is feed some of the money into UK political parties coffers like (allegedly) some other influential rich people from a sandy country; articles like this won’t even appear on the So-Called BBC after that......

      The reserve figures are secret these days, especially with the partial sale of Aramco coming up, and are commonly believed to be overstated as they're not going down: new finds magically replace extracted oil.
      But there have been no new big finds since the 1970s.  So that seems "unlikely".
      Current claimed reserves are roughly at the level of 1989 - 260bn barrels - but that was a huge hike upon the 1987 figure of 170bn of easily recoverable oil and suggests the inclusion of probable / possible reserves.
      So going back to that 1987 figure as the last undisputed figure and bearing in mind no big new finds since start deducting the c. 10m barrels a day production, 3.65bn per year.
      Thirty years' extraction to 2017 is 109.5bn of that 1987 reserve.  The remaining 60.5bn will last a mere 16.5 years which isn't very long at all.
      Now there will be unders and overs: improved extraction techniques Vs sea water contamination of fields from previous extraction techniques which will blur this figure.
      So that 16.5 may be 20 years or it may be 15.  Either way it's not long.
      Then it's back to being goat herders and no more funding the export of islam and islamic terrorism.
      Not long now

      This is getting into wtf territory.
      For years we have all been baffled by the slack cut to the Saudi royals and now they have gone, in a coupe of weeks, from  the world's richest and luckiest people to torture victims.  And this is miles down the news behind Barak Obama's daughter kissing somebody of whom I've not heard and somebody else of whom I've not heard being thrown off a reality show I don't watch.
      Is the MSM just openly taking the piss now?
