"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…"

I suspect that is true, but Iran may then unleash their much-vaunted, and somewhat less effective, human-wave attacks using even some people without weapons, like they did in the Iran-Iraq War.

Would love to see everyone around the globe getting on board to support those that want true freedom and democracy there. I suspect the current guys in charge are living on borrowed time, quite literally, due to their advanced age and outdated policies.

You think Iraq or Kuwait could stop them?

"Tough to walk to Saudi Arabia from Iran…..".

Not really, when one considers the Iraqis are apparently their allies now, or at least some there are.

When your air force and navy are wiped out, and aircraft and drones are hitting any vehicle that moves, walking may be the preferred, if not their only option.

Has SA's army improved greatly since the Iraq invasion?

I imagine not, and that is probably the REAL issue.

Of course, being as wealthy as they are, they'll probably hire lots of Mercs to help with that, since they have the surplus cash, unlike Iran.

You don't really need an army to eliminate their air force and navy in short order.

So SA can destroy Iran in eight hours, but they get their ass handed to them in Yemen by the local rebellion. Ok…

No one said that gp, but they could wipe out their air force and navy in short order, if desired.

Fighting personnel in a guerrilla war is a far different kettle of fish, as the USA learned in Vietnam.

I would have thought that any country that has 33% foreign works should be very careful about starting major wars.

Even if few of them have Iranian sympathies many will prefer not to work in a hot war zone, especially the skilled workers.

When I think if elite fighters the Saudis don't make my top 100 list.
