    Awesome! Thank you my Saudi friends.

    I wonder if they will allow US planes to attack Iran from Saudi airbases?

    They will try anyways. If Israel wants to bomb Iran, you can bet Iran will get bombed. If Iran tries to bomb Israel, the will just lose what few functional aircraft they have left.

    Methinks the Saudi Royal Family has been watching the news from Egypt and doesn't think they would adapt too well to being thrown in prison by the Muslim Brotherhood after an overthrow.

    This. Saudi Arabia hates Iran, particularly after the foiled bombing of their ambassador last year.

    If memory serves me, when Israel bombed an Iraqi Nuclear plant, the didn't ask for permission to fly over Syrian airspace or any airspace for that matter, nor give any advance warning. They just did it...

    ETA: No, it was Jordan, not Syria...

    Doesn't matter...any Saudi aircraft that makes it into the air will be scrap within moments of approaching an Israeli formation.

    I remember reading a few year ago there was a secret deal to allow Israeli planes to flyover. I think this is just for show.

    Bull****. Saudi pilots fly F-15s and are trained in the US.

    Saudi Pilots are nowhere's near as good as Isreali pilots! Almost ZERO combat experience. They didn't ever cross the border during the Gulf war! Flew very few missions into Kuait! They may have top of the line fighters-same as Isreal but they are no match for them.:rofl:

    look at a map. they don't need to fly over saudi arabia to get to iran. sryia, iraq, iran pretty much a straight shot to almost anywhere in iran exect the most southern parts.

    Roughly 4% of all F-15 kills were by Saudi pilots...

    That's just what the Saudis are saying publicly. Privately they want Iran stopped as much as Israel does.

    Saudi fighters won't need to go against Israeli fighters. Ever hear of surface to air missiles?

    Saudi Arabia has as much right to protect their sovereign airspace as we do.

    Why would any of you think they shouldn't?
