#2 S. Arabia: We'll intercept any IAF aircraft en route to Iran...
...to escort them in order to avoid potential IFF mis-identification with surface PATRIOT batteries along the lines of approach. [just saying]

#3 The Saudis are quietly mulling dev a viable LR strategic nuclear arsenal for the defense of their country + Sunni Islam - in time this will will put them on a collision course wid the pro-Shia Caliphate minded Mullahs of Rising Iran.
Be it Sunni-centric or Shia-centric, any future OWG Caliphate wil need strategic nuclear weapons just to par wid the US-West = non-Islamic World, let alone supercede it.
