Saudi Patriot Missile malfunctions and hits city

 

One of the patriot missiles detonated in mid-air shortly after launch from the PAC-2 SAM site. This premature detonation was unexpected, but no cause for concern. A second missile went wildly off-course and actually impacted a nearby residential area inside of the Saudi Arabian capital city of Riyadh.

That would be scary as fuck watching that come at you at that speed knowing there was nothing you could do.

Looks like we sold them the duds lol.

They weren't testing. They were intercepting missiles launched at them.

I love the “no cause for concern” part. Hits residential area. Rags are flying around like streamers at a New York NYE celebration, but hey, ees normal. 

Good. The saudis deserve whatever they get.

Meanwhile the US aids and abets the thousands of civilian deaths in Yemen.

That was actually a true patriot missle. 

Houthis have missiles now?

This won't end well.

Missiles falling into Saudi Arabia?

 

Eees Normal!

The Saudis always btfo themselves. Their military incompetence is legendary.

It's been hilarious watching a few guys with AK-47s and RPGs humiliate them in Yemen.

So they literally bombed themselves.  Even North Korea is smart enough to shoot it AWAY from their country.

That’s not a malfunction, that’s a feature.

That is crazy how it turns like that and is going so fast. Is that the camera being fucked up or are they just moving that fast?
