Yemen’s Houthis claim a ballistic missile attack on the royal palace in Riyadh

The ballistic missile attack was claimed by the Iran-backed Houthi rebels to have been aimed from a distance of 1,000km on Tuesday at a royal palace meeting in Riyadh. It missed aim and exploded outside its target. Witnesses reported a large explosion in the Saudi capital and heavy smoke. The Saudis say it was intercepted, like the previous two Houthi ballistic missiles fired into the kingdom. Riyadh later announced a Saudi air strike against Houthi targets in Yemen.

    The Prophet Sam Popack said “Iran will be destroyed” this was decreed in heaven. Turkey is next on the list.

      In 1989, a Nigerian prophet by name Chukwudi Ikpeama prophesied the near destruction of Iraq. He correctly prophesied the disintegration of czechoslavia. He also prophesied in 1989 that he saw destruction of Iran in the distant future. This prophecies among others were publish in a December 1989 edition of Statesman Newspapers in Imo State Nigeria. I think Iran should be very careful not to start any war with Israel or the US, or cause them to declare war on her.

    Israel, the capstone of the Zionist colonial project, Messiah of the ‘jewish people”, no less. The safest place on earth for post ‘churban’ replacement theology ‘jews. No less.

    Gee that’s terrible that Saud is starting to experience the same errant mortar/errant stray bullet/errant passed wind/errant ballistic missile fire from units that it itself is running over the border – it’s almost as if the Sauds are playing the exact same pathetic game with the same hubris Israel enjoys with the Nusra units the UN Observers have identified being run over the Golan

    I mean shouldn’t the Saud’s advisors really come up with a fresh shtick?

    Then again, since the Nusra/ISIS units being run over the Golan have been evicted, maybe these are the same guys the Saudis are using now, now that they’re back home in Wahabi land

    It sounds like these Wandering Wahabis need someone with better welding experience though – whatever but maybe they are just getting ripped on their old 9 valve ballistic missile surplus from the Iraq-Iran conflict or wherever they dug them up

    The funniest part was when Prince MSB started saying they were from Hezbollah and he was ready to declare Iran responsible as well – it was like Sarah saying she could see Russia from her house.

    Then again Bill Kristol probably prepped them both from the same ‘No Nuthin for Know Nothings’ brief so maybe there really is only a couple of degrees of separation

    If an Saudi F15 took off with an old rusty missile casing strapped to it’s hard point, flies over the border with Yemen, then circles back into Saudi and lands, does that count as a ballistic missile trajectory for the Hezbollah weapon?

    How many Israeli special forces does it take to weld together a 9 valve ballistic missile that they just uncrated?

    The answer is 36.

    1 to hold the welder and 35 to rotate the missile

    ‘Nikki’s Ode to the Stung Clean Break Drive on Iran’

    ‘These boots are made for walking
    And that’s just what they’ll do
    One of these days these boots are gonna walk the plank for you’

    No walking back the Putin-stung Clean Break plank, Nikki, but cute pirate boots matey!

    Hope your 15 min blown on Trump was worth it because you’re never climbing down from the top of the mast you lashed yourself too with that spectacle

    Netanyahu and Trump wouldn’t even let you cancel your show and tell which was ALREADY a dead letter after Trump blew up the Clean Break Drive with Jerusalem and any hope of Saudi/Gulf cooperation with Israel’s drive on Syria/Iran.

    Well, then again, it was Netanyahu correctly making the move to ‘unify absolutely everyone’ and stick JStreet and the Diaspora to him with Jerusalem, his fate now their fate. Nope, he ain’t going down alone anymore, nosiree. Everybody’s going down together if Bibi goes down – if Mama ain’t happy ain’t nobody happy, he made sure of it

    After Jerusalem the word was already out that Saudi is OUT of your Putin-Stung Clean Break Drive and that means No Presidential Soup for you ever, Nikki, but still you got out there and walked down that plank. Guts, real guts

    Trump finally found someone that was loyal to him, no matter what – quite a legacy, Nikki, quite the legacy. Own it, walk it, and your pirate boots fit so wear them, wear them for the rest of your life

    ‘The Impeachment of the Co-Presidents Netanyahu and Trump’

    After the UN GA vote on Palestine, Netanyahu’s moll Nikki Haley is now ‘taking names’ and threatening all the states of the world – it reminds me of the same thing Bibi did after his ‘involuntary narcissistic rage’ event over the unsuccessful conspiracy over UN 2334 (now the central thrust of the Trump Impeachment) with his astonishing and revealing direct ordering of the US Congress to retaliate, and same thing Adelson did after the Iran Deal, when Adelson and the Lobby started threatening US Congressman who broke from the Israel Lobby.

    Real ‘American’ of you, Sheldon, Nikki, Bibi
