#5 I understand they didn't have the anti-air missile systems powered up? If that is true, this is as much their fault for lying naked in the middle of the road. Mad mullahs gonna mad mullah.

Suggest they add a slew of CWIS as well, but only if someone is, like, awake and watching. I guess the land based system is called LPWS.

Come to think of it, why aren't the Navy's Standard Missile (pick a number) set up for land defense? AMRAAM's in rotary magazines like on the B-1's? Jeez.

If the Saudi's can't keep anyone native focused, hire really good mercs.

#7 The Saudi's have been using Pakistani's for years as their main armed forces.

#8 #5 The USN's RAM or the Israeli David's Sling are both off the shelf solutions for attacks like this. The Saudis would'd still have to turn them on though.

And the Saudis would want to buy the joo-cootie free Patriot Pac-4 version of David's Sling. IIUC, it's the same radar/missile combination.
