    Iranian Guided U-Turn Missiles


    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    Considering that the Saudis have been at war with Yemen (Houthis) for years, they should be high on the list of suspects.

    Immediately blaming Iran is just lazy, cheap propaganda.

    I thought Trump got rid of Bolton and the only source of anti Iranian propaganda in his government?
    Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne,--
    Yet that scaffold sways the future, and, behind the dim unknown,
    Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own.

    Trump did say Bolton was holding him back.

    The missiles don't have the range, but seems some of their drones do: https://taskandpurpose.com/iran-kamikaze-drone

    A report from the United Nations Security Council published in January suggests that Houthi forces have obtained more powerful drone weaponry than what was previously available to them, and that the newer drones have the capability to travel greater distances and inflict more harm.

    These "so-called 'suicide or kamikaze drones,'" include UAV-X drones with a maximum range of 1,500 kilometers, or 930 miles, which would give Houthi forces the ability to launch drones from their Yemen territory to the oil facilities in Saudi Arabia.

    The drone strikes on Saturday were claimed by Houthi spokesperson Brigadier General Yahya Sare'e on a Houthi-controlled TV station. Sare'e said 10 drones were used in the attack, which he said was in retaliation to Saudi military intervention in Yemen that has devastated the country, which has been at war since 2015.
    According to a panel reporting to the UN Security Council, since September 2018, six drones have been collected that were used by Houthi forces for reconnaissance or attack purposes.

    These UAV-X drones contain more powerful engines than the previously studied Qasef-1 drones, which did not allow Houthi rebels to strike further than the southern border regions of Saudi Arabia from Houthi-controlled territory in Yemen.

    It is still unclear whether Houthi forces are the definite source of the drones that struck the Saudi oil facilities. Pompeo said on Twitter that there is "no evidence" the attack came from Yemen. The Saudi Arabian government has not yet issued any statements identifying or accusing a specific attacker. The last drone attack on a Saudi oil facility was carried out by an Iran-backed militia in Iraq.

    However, the Houthi spokesperson claimed that the attack was possible thanks to "cooperation" with people in Saudi Arabia, and warned of further attacks on the country.

    The types of drones observed by the UN panel in use by Houthi forces are loitering munitions, which are unmanned aerial vehicles designed to strike targets from a distance using explosive warheads. Not only are UAV-X drones capable of engaging with targets further away, but the warheads examined by the panel contained 18 kilograms, or nearly 40 pounds, of explosives mixed will bear bearings.

    Those findings suggest the drones in use by Houthi forces since mid-2018 are more deadly. The weaponry available to Houthi rebels has improved since the Houthi forces have been in collaboration with Iran. Saudi Arabia denied UN requests to inspect the guidance systems of the UAV-X drones, which could indicate supply chains as well as possible violations of the targeted arms embargo on Yemen.
    The drones seem identical to ones produced by Iran.
