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.

Saudis claiming that it was a Burkan 2H missile fired from #Yemen targeting King Khaled Airport.

Yeah, sure - they know exactly what kind of missile it is. 9_9

It was a veiled threat using the Burqa 2

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.

Look at this for evidence https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment

      Well not quite breakfast but an unrelated males sitting with a woman whilst eating breakfast is. 
      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-45471549
      An Egyptian man in Saudi Arabia has been arrested after a video of him having breakfast with a woman went viral on Twitter.
      In the video, a man with an Egyptian dialect eats breakfast beside a womanwearing a full face veil, who many assumed to be Saudi.
      This is in contravention of the law in Saudi Arabia, where in workplaces or eateries like McDonald's and Starbucks, families and single men have to sit in different areas. 
      Women must sit separately from single men in these places.
      They are not allowed to exercise most activities without being accompanied by their male guardians, usually a father or husband, but possibly a brother or a son.
       
      dear God, Saudi Arabia should be shunned by every other country until the drag themselves out of the 15th century. 
      Oh, and the article didn’t explain how she managed to eat breakfast with a full face veil. Poor reporting from the So-Called BBC there

      Given the clips we have seen in the media concerning the lack of driving skills by some sections on the ‘community ‘ I’m not convinced that this is a good move. Anyhow 
      https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jun/23/its-momentous-saudi-women-excited-finally-hit-road-driving-ban
      al-Sonosi’s new red Range Rover has been sitting in her driveway for two months, its engine only started for brief, furtive trips around the block. Just after midnight on Saturday, both Sonosi and her car will no longer have to hide.
      A goal she had aspired to for most of her life – to drive herself wherever she pleased – will become a reality for Sonosi, as well as for a selected minority ofother women in Saudi Arabia, who for the first time will legally be able to take to the roads.
       
      sounds good until we get to the bit in the article where it explains restrictions are still in place
      Sonosi is one of 30 women in Jeddah, the kingdom’s second city, to have been granted a licence. Many thousands more have applied. Those allowed to drive have been carefully selected. The politics of women driving, and who gets to claim credit for it, has become increasingly loaded.
       
      i suppose its ok as long as they don’t want to bring their medieval and misogynistic views over here. Oh wait....

      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......
