    All the evidence (including the footage) suggests that despite Saudi claims that the missile was intercepted, the missile did land, it did explode and all that remains to be determined is what damage it caused in Riyadh.

    Whatever the Iranian version of the high five is, there'll be a few of those being exchanged in Tehran right now.

    CNN is totally in the pockets of the Saudis. It's actually cringeworthy.

    The Saudis have been bombing Yemen indiscriminately and now they get all flustered when there's a little retaliation. Expect more where that came from.

    Do not believe in 'revolutions'. Not in this day and age and certainly not in that cursed country which with the active aid of the West has been spreading religious madness as far West as Nigeria, as far east as Afghanistan, as far south as Kenya as far north as the Caucasus - for decades now.

    Powerful President for 34 years .... knew how to play the system .... unfortunately tried to betray his Houthi allies and jump to the Saudi side. He seems to have overestimated his own capabilities.

    This leaves the Saudis angry and frustrated (again!) because they have lost a potential war-winning ally. They will now ratchet up the air strikes, unless the Americans put the brakes on. Which is highly unlikely.

    Funny, Saudis are actually major (second largest!) shareholders in Murdoch's News Corporation, which owns Fox News.

    You can bet Hannity or Trump do not mention that very often. And Trump has investments in Saudi and the Gulf. Nothing to do with beating up handicapped teenagers, you understand? Just business.
