BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – A Saudi prince posted on Twitter Thursday that Saudi Arabia’s military could destroy Iran in eight hours if they wanted to.

Prince Abdullah bin Sultan bin Nasser Al-Saud tweeted a video on Thursday that showed some of the Gulf kingdom’s F-15 warplanes in comparison to Iran’s F-4 Phantom jets.

In quotations, the prince tweeted, “Saudi Arabia can destroy #Iran in 8 hours”, he would later add, “What is hidden is greater. There is no force in the world that can stand up to our unity, our resolve, our renaissance and thank God.”

The Saudi prince cited an earlier report on Saudi Arabia’s military capabilities.

“Iran has no fighter jets that can reach Saudi Arabia,” according to an analyst interviewed on Channel 24.

The analyst added Iran’s air force is outdated and weak, highlighting things like Iran’s old aircraft and limited number of Soviet-era MiG-29 fighter jets.

I know.
That’s coming from a prince whose country is waging war with one of the poorest countries in the world, the Yemen. The Saudis have the wealth to purchase influence, jet fighters & weapons from the West together with the services of Sudanese mercenaries and others and yet after several YEARS still can’t pacify the local Houthi resistance…..

Houthis are not resistance. They have sold their country to a foreign power = they are traitors, just like Hezbollah. Houthis STARTED THE CIVIL WAR, nobody else. They tried to overthrow the republic through a coup instead of running for elections. They may have a well oiled propaganda machine, they are not representative of Yemen’s population, neither ethnically, nor politically, nor on sectarian basis… +++ “and yet after several YEARS still can’t pacify” => can’t? Are you sure? Look, Houthis barely only control the Zaydi-Shia populated areas : So where members of their sect live… Moreover, they were already using… Read more »

Iran doesn’t need fighter jets to reach Saudi. It has over 100,000 missiles, some guided.

One missile heading to the royal palace is enough to cause a chaos and fear in that country.

+++ “It has over 100,000 missiles, some guided.” => A missile is always guided, if not, it’s an artillery rocket. It’s more something like 300-400 Scuds and a few Hwasong… Such kind of suppositories aren’t really for free and cumulated MIL+IRGC budgets are maybe the third or quarter of Japan, and there is a serious manpower to feed. Moreover, 3 attempts to launch a space-rocket in 2019, 3 fails, so the missiles are not really Russia/ESA/NASA quality… You should inform yourself on Saudi ballistic forces : they are pretty huge, you know, +++ “One missile heading to the royal palace… Read more »

If the war happened there won’t be a single saudi in that country everyone will flee in the first minutes of the war leaving only dust behind.

=> They can. But it’s not because you can you will, would or should.
It doesn’t takes a genius to understand why they don’t annihilate the Houthis.

He *almost* got it right. He just inverted the words “Iran” and “Saudi Arabia” within the sentence. Man the joker almost funnier than Nut-a-Yahoo, no wonder they’re such greats bros ! “No fighter plane from Iran can reach the KSA” ==> that one alone speaks volumes as to how much of a highly knowledgeable person the proud Prince seems to be on military affairs, I won’t even dignity that with a one-liner containing the words “ballistic” & “missiles”… he appears like an 8 year-old playing in his father’s Palace sharing his take in front of the family camera, I swear…… Read more »

Let’s hope your bosses (Khamenei, Salami, etc) think the same way as you do : this will seal their doom and the Iranian people will applaud their demise even more than Iraqis applauded Saddam’s fall.

They’re not in a hurry : Sunnis have food, drugs, etc.
Shias in Houthi-controlled areas have war, their children taken as child-soldiers, famine and cholera…
It’s very very very nasty.

Three years KSA is fighting Yemen, result is zero, Yemen is reaching Riyadh.
So called princes are like that ie idiots. Syria is still in place. Fighter jets will
not fight, it is the people who will fight

Houthis lost about the 2 third of the territory they once held.
They couldn’t stop any Saudi offensive. Latest air-strike on a Houthi camp ended with 13 fatalities, 8 were children! Houthis are in the same situation as Adolf, early 1945 : they use HouthiJügend by lack of adult fighters…

This has to be the joke of the year!!! What a clown a$$!!! Saudi planes with American, British and Israeli pilots, dare he say? Iran would send this white-robed sh-t-sack and his ilk scurrying to their private planes and yachts and they’d be high-tailing it out of the country after the first 8 minutes.

Saudis don’t use mercenary pilots, you’re mistaking with Qatar!

+++ “Iran would send this white-robed sh-t-sack and his ilk scurrying to their private planes and yachts and they’d be high-tailing it out of the country after the first 8 minutes.”
=> with a 2018 military budget even bigger than Russia+Israel, I wouldn’t bet a buck on this…

The Saudis really don’t need anybody to make fun of them, they do that all for themselves.
8 hours, indeed. Maybe, that’s how long it took him to write that tweet.

+++ “Iran could rain ballistic missile ” => Barely 300-400 Scud copies and a few Hwasong copies… Now that Patriot batteries, which are pretty short range assets : 20km for PAC-3, 35km for PAC-3 MSE (IDK if KSA bought the MSE), are added with THAAD ranging 240km, very few ballistic missiles may go through. Maybe you may not know about it but… Royal Saudi Strategic Missile Force have 450-600 Dong-Feng DF-3 and undisclosed numbers (said to be huge) of DF-21 +++ “even before their junk reach Iran.. and if they do , the air defense system will be waiting for… Read more »

If the stupid ayatoilets were able to destroy a country the size of KSA in 30 minutes, Israel would be long gone…
And Iran too, as it would only take 6 minutes to the 15-17 Jericho-3 and their 45 MIRVs loaded with W59 warheads to reach their targets in Iran, each making more than 30,000km² radioactive.
It would be terrible for the carpet industry.

Are you sure they can’t? Or do they think that since Iran spends big on Houthi morons while these are contained just like Hamas in Gaza, it’s a better strategy having Iran dilapidating hundreds of millions dollars on useless proxies rather than in its own military?
