Posted on 11/10/2017 5:38:38 AM PST by McGruff
The ballistic missile fired by Yemeni rebels that targeted the Saudi capital was from Iran and bore Iranian markings, the top U.S. Air Force official in the Mideast said Friday.
Lt. Gen. Jeffrey L. Harrigian, who oversees the Air Forces Central Command in Qatar, made the comments at a news conference in Dubai.
Harrigian said authorities were investigating how the missile was smuggled into Yemen amid a Saudi-led coalition controlling the countrys airspace, ports and borders.

Not really news. The Houthis are supported by Iran. Where else would they get it from?
Gee. An all out Sunni vs Shia war.
Like watching Stalin and Hitler duke it out again.
Pop some corn and pull up a chair.
I would love to see the whole ME embroiled in a fur ball. Watching them kick the crap out of each other would be downright entertaining.
Remember those side deals Obama forged with Iran that were not part of the text of the official treaty? Now we are finding out some of the details.
Yesterday, the Washington Free Beacon reported that Iranian officials confirmed they have received at least $10 billion in cash, commodities, and assets from Washington since 2013. And that is likely a conservative estimate.
But cash is not the only thing the Islamic Republic of Iran is receiving for gracing us with their willingness to sign onto our own capitulation.
The AP is reporting that Russia, with the support of President Obama, is shipping Iran 116 metric tons of natural uranium.
While Iranian officials have obviously declined to disclose the use of such uranium, AP notes that this is enough to enrich weapons-grade uranium for nuclear bombs:
Despite present restrictions on its enrichment program, however, the amount of natural uranium is significant should Iran decide to keep it in storage, considering its potential uses once some limits on Tehrans nuclear activities start to expire in less than a decade.
David Albright, whose Institute of Science and International Security often briefs U.S. lawmakers on Irans nuclear program, says the shipment could be enriched to enough weapons-grade uranium for more than 10 simple nuclear bombs, depending on the efficiency of the enrichment process and the design of the nuclear weapon. ...
I would like to see some evidence. Just another ginned up war.
Truthfully, the Saudis should quietly build an s-load of much better, mass produced conventional missiles. Put them in discreet underground launch centers along their coast.
Then, when Iran tries something stupid, send about 1,000 of these missiles their way. Shoot for a payload of 1,000 pounds of HE for long range targets, and up to 5,000 pounds for closer ones.
The best part is that when Iran did their provocation, it is unlikely that they would be fully prepared for war, their military would be crippled, and any counterattacks could be easily beaten back.
Al Quaeda organizations control the coastal regions along the horn of Africa. Yemen resides only a few miles across the straights from Somalia. This is the entrance to the Red Sea.
Iran, with the help of its allies, is attempting to control the gateway to the most important shipping lane to Europe and Asia.
Iran also is attempting to cut a swath through Africa. They also control Hezbolla in Lebanon. Additionally, they have established themselves in Venezuala. They are using the cartels to move drugs, arms and terrorists (MS-13) to infiltrate South, Central and North America. Sanctuary cities are used as hubs for thier activity.
The storm is coming. Thank God we elected Trump.
No Wonder there is a ship blockade for Yemen ports. The Saudis said armaments were coming in on ships.
“I would love to see the whole ME embroiled in a fur ball.”
It will eventually happen...
“I would like to see some evidence”
I agree! They will never provide any though!
> Obama allowing Iran to purchase uranium from Russia
ELT is stating the good stuff and I agree with him.
Imagine, Uranium One; providing uranium for Iran, via Russia. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again.
McGruff is the CEO of the FR KGB Putin Fan Club.
As a Jewess on the US, I can only point out that the number of women who allegedly DATED, but had no sex with, Roy Moore is EXACTLY the same number who accused President Clinton of FORCIBLE RAPE, a FAR more serious offense. Now we know why all REAL Americans put our 2nd Amendment FIRST. Just sayin!
Sounds like you posted to the wrong thread.
I've been shouting it from the rooftops here on FR for months before all of this took off that the real Russia collusion story involved the Democrats. That the big fuss they were making was to cover up and distract from the real Russia scandals: Uranium One, Obama's "flexible" missile defense and nuke deals, including the Iran nuke deal that Putin loved so much.
IF the ME explodes, the moment one side starts losing badly, that side will lob something at Israel to draw Israel into the fraw and unite ALL muhamedans against Israel. THEN the fur will fly!
Wow, sounds like they need an interception system, we can help with that...
..and while we’re at it, Iran could put some of their cash to good use and boost their rocket supply, we can help with that too!
..Paging Mr North!
There is a trade/armaments AXIS revolting around and through Iran. Russia gives them the modern anti-aircraft missile 3 tiered defense to keep the Israelis and US from taking out nuclear weapons development sites.
Pakistan probably helped them develop some of their nuclear technology. No. Korea supplies them and their proxies (i.e. Houthis/Yemeni rebels) with arms and technology.
Obama gave Iran nearly everything it needed to become the region’s ruler and nuclear power.
Iran uses Hezbollah and possibly Hamas to try and destroy Israel, take over Lebanon (significantly accomplishes), to take over Jordan, parts of Syria (already there), and to to put the pressure on Iraq to surrender to de factor Iranian sovereignty.
Nothing new. Just largely ignored by the mainstream media and even some conservatives. And Israel, the Jordanian govt and the Egyptian government truly understand Iran’s “Great Design” of conquest and they knew that Obama was not on their side.
There aren’t enough jail cells for the Obama administrations traitors who helped arm Iran and its proxies.
BUT WE CAN BUILD MORE IF THEY EVER GO TO TRIAL.
Stand back and let 'em at each other. The first elected official here in the US that says we need to intervene should be bound up and sent over there to pick a side to fight on all by his/her lonesome before that opinion spreads like measles.
