    So sad theres always Americans that think the cause justifies the means.

    Edit: I'm tired of wars, stop occupying other countries and just help your own country, before it's to late and you inevitably get knocked down a peg...

    I believe that this whole episode is just a warning shot to The Saudi's. Not by Iran alone, but a coalition that is forming in defence of Iranian sovereignty.
    The warning shot says : You are a one trick pony. You have two resources, oil and sand. You are extremely vulnerable. Don't stir the pot on US or Israel's behalf.
    And that assessment is fundamentally true. Hostile forces were able to easily take down half of the Saudi's resource economy. The other half, just as vulnerable, would spiral the Kingdom of Saud into chaos.

    Defensive measures are all well & good- but if all we got in the toolbox is that & increased economic sanctions in response to Irans continuing acts of aggression- its just a matter of time- more than likely before we see another "act of war" from the Iranians.
