Saudi Arabia has ‘a great deal of explaining to do’ on how its oil assets were attacked, says former US diplomat

Mr Former US Diplomat, can you stop being ridiculous ?

Saudi Arabia has spent billions on arms, most of it is stuff from the USA. And the billions on arms, some of it was spent on 'missile defence systems'.  So, purchase from America, some defence missiles, these missiles are suppose to knock out missiles that are attacking the country. Does all this mean that, the American missile defence system failed to knock out the missiles that damaged the oil assets ?

Maybe Saudi Arabia can sue Washington, or sue the US defence contracters for selling faulty equipment ? Or, there's the "Trade Desriptions Act".  If you sell something that you said was chicken, but it's not, well, you've gone against the Trade Descriptions Act.  And if you sell a product that claims to knock out incoming missiles, but it does not, well, again, you've gone against the Trade Desriptions Act.


On a different note, what about the billions that have been spent on missile defence systems in other places on planet earth. Do they actually work ?

Do missile defense systems work on drones?

Perhaps the Russian ones work? That would be why USA is hesitant to attack countries that have them?

Drones that are used by the Houthis:

They are all considerably smaller than munitions carrying drones that launch missiles.

 

Because they are the munition........"kamikaze" drones.

 

 

 

Nice little air cooled flat twin motor in that pic.

Shame to destroy it on impact.

Just sayin.... :ninja:
