It's a truly sad state we are in that I find it just as likely that we, the U.S., are involved along with the Saudis, doing minor damage as an excuse to start all out war with Iran. It wouldn't be the first time.

Unlikely that 10 drones managed to hit 17 targets. Even more unlikely that they were drones and not cruise missiles.

We should not get our self involved with this. Provide information sure but that is all. This is not our fight.

Tell that to the "locked and loaded" Trump.

You made it your fight when the US pulled out of a treaty with Iran. Alienated it's oldest allies while increasing ties with the Saudis, selling them hundreds of billions in military equipment and ignoring blatant assassination and the fact that Saudis were involved in 9/11.

There are commercially available drones that have a large enough cargo capacity off-the-shelf to for delivery of a big enough explosive to start a fire that could be quite destructive if delivered to the right location. Just $5k or $10 will be enough for each aircraft itself. Depending on how close the pilots want to be they could go as cheap as $1k for each drone, maybe lass.

Lucky for the Yemeni the technology in this video won't be available for another 3-5 years....

I've seen a lot of articles talking about soldiers having to face swarms of "loitering" drones. Many suggesting that it's a threat only the "good guys" have to face.

Meanwhile,

Something tells me the "good guys" will have APS in place to counter small drones well before the "bad guys".
