No one was expecting an attack from Iraq side, all eyes were on Yemen and the enemies exploited this situation. Either the Saudi air defenses on the northern side are not adequate or were turned off.What bugs me is that the US missiles shield deployed to Kuwait was not able to the detect the drones and the missiles coming from Iraq/Iran. Its also our defense systems not being positioned to the north. Maybe Saudi Arabia can look for other system until the THAAD arrives or may be ask the UAE to station some of its air defense systems for the time being. Interesting to note that Iraqi PM has arrived to Jeddah and has met with the king few hours ago. This comes after Saudi Air forces airstrikes inside Iraq and Syria few days back.
