    it's funny that a country with a country with a GDP smaller than and society more dysfunctional than Italy can get the american hateboner raging so bad, there's this beautiful qoute about fascists needing a strong and weak enemy at the same time i can't quite recall.

    any indications of what drones where used ? because my bet is on COTS (Commercial, Off the Shelf) kit with bombs strapped on.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    Basically, it doesn't have to be much more sophisticated than a RC plane with some extra servos and a video feed most likely.

    Also lol. Italy isn't murdering it's journalists, invading it's neighbors and throwing it's barely functioning nuclear arsenal around like it's a big dick and promising future weapons "that cannot be defeated" (lol)

    This seems to suggest weapons a bit more sophisticated than an a flying IED.

    There are *claims*, without ultimate proof, that it wasnt really drones but rather "cruise missiles".

    I would be very careful what to believe, but tend to think that the strike was too precise and sudden to be some homegrown swarm of RC drones with grenades. I used to think that the tanker attacks were theatre by the Saudi, Israeli or US security forces, but with every escalation i am more drawn to the conclusion that theres madmen on both sides.

    The houthis have a static display of examples of (mostof) their missile and drone arsenal. Among them is this



    And some of the wreckage found



    matches it (the rounded winglet/ fin things)

    It's called a Quds 1 and it's claimed to be a locally produced variant of the Iranian Soumar missile which itself is a knock-off of the Russian Kh-55 which they acquired through Ukraine in the early 2000s

    OK but in this case it's Iran giving weapons to its own proxies. Also its entirely possible that the weapons weren't even launched from Yemen

    What i dont trust is that the image of the wreckage actually has anything to do with the attack, yesterdays sand dune looks like todays.

    Fog of war i guess.

    The wreckage in Paradox' post doesn't really match that museum exhibit either. I compared some pixels, I know what I'm talking about.

    Houthis in Yemen claim to have killed and/or captured 3 Saudi brigades south of Najran in SA.

    Sounds bad for the Saudi, claim also includes "hundreds" of vehicles (im more inclined to belive a hundred at most)

    False flag, it was Iran. Houtis not capable.

    If that's true, then the Houthis are in an offensive war, and have invaded another country...
