Looks like things are getting ready to get very serious with Iran. Iran has missiles capable of reaching Israel, albeit with conventional warheads (at least that’s what most military analysts think). Not sure Iran wants to take on the Saudi Air Force, which is a pretty good one, by flying over Saudi territory though – much less having to tangle with Israel’s.

This whole nuclear deal is probably is a just nothing more than a play by the Iranian President to stay in power by starting a shooting war against the “great evil” – Israel. If the other countries in the region believe Iran is developing nuclear weapons, then Iran is actually developing them. Their intelligence probably is a lot better than ours. Talk about a country that needs a “regime change”!
Saudis Open Skies for Israeli Hit on Iran
Saudi Arabia is giving Israel a free pass through its airspace for a bombing run on Iranian nuclear sites, reports the Times of London, citing defense sources in the Gulf. The move puts four key sites within range of Israeli bombers, and the Saudis have tested lowering their air defenses to allow the Israelis through. While there’s no love lost between the two, “I know that Saudi Arabia is even more afraid than Israel of an Iranian nuclear capacity,” says one official.
“The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” a US defense source tells the Times. “They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the State Department.”
