Saudi Tornado Interdiction Fighter shot down in Yemen...I'd bet body parts US forces rescued the two pilots...

via Reuters.
A warplane from Saudi Arabia’s air forces fighting the Houthi movement in Yemen crashed on Sunday due to a technical fault while conducting military operations, a statement carried by the Saudi state news agency SPA said.

The Houthi armed movement’s TV channel al-Massirah earlier said Houthi forces had shot down the fighter in Saada province, adding it was a Britain-made Tornado.

The Saudi statement said the plane had crashed in the war zone. It said the Saudi-led coalition conducted a special operation to evacuate the two pilots who survived the crash.
Saudi led coalition conducted a special operation to evacuate the two pilots?  Bullshit.  The Saudis don't have the infrastructure in the area to conduct those type missions.  Neither do any of their Arab allies.

Once again US forces risked life and limb to save Saudi ass...dumb ass at that.

Trump can be forgiven for all his idiocy except for his failure to ramp down wars.  Listen to the generals?  They've failed in Iraq and Afghanistan for almost two decades.  They stated that it would take 50 years to defeat ISIS. They still don't have a REAL plan to win in Afghanistan.

And we're suppose to listen to the generals?
