#2 I think they bought the MM23 Hawk systems from Raytheon. They buy from all over actually. Recently bought IRBMs from China.

#4 Something that should have been done by someone right after 9-11. Suggest operational name, "Doolittle’s Raiders".

#5 Hajj 2019® is coming up soon.

Wonder if this isn't testing a backdoor method to reduce 'tourists' and thereby cutting into SA's economy and stature.

#6 Near Mecca, eh? If one had a submarine with a couple spare cruise missiles and wanted to do a little pot-stirring....

#9 #1 The Saudis are buying several billion dollars of the latest US ABMs. And in numbers to take out a "saturation" attack.

Any Israeli involvement has been "greenwashed" though American companies.
