Why would Pakistan go to war with Iran for KSA? Anyway I think KSA's armed forces are well equipped to defend themselves, they got better equipment than PA itself.
Because of religious reasons and also economy

They got equipment, but you need command level manpower as well. Not exactly sure how much battle field experience their commanders have.....meanwhile, almost every major unit in PA has got some dose of it in the COIN operations in the past 10 years.

Pakistan should not intervene since it doesn't affect us directly, but if Saudi were to ask, let's assume shit hit the fan, Pakistan cannot refuse and will not refuse. No need for Ballistic missiles here.......infantry and air force is enough.

No one needs to invade Iran, a sustained aerial bombing will be enough....and that Saudi and UAE are capable of.

Yemen is the Ukraine of the Middle East. At least in Ukraine, Putin's moves were not publicly acknowledged. SaudiA is going all guns blazing here.

This is no action movie in which you fantasize war. Come off your horse, no war with Iran will happen. We declare war on countries when they have already declared war on us. We are not aggressors.

You are talking as if Pakistan's army is some rag-tag militia hired by foreign agents, in this case Saudis. The funnier part is that you seem to take pride in that, an army on payroll of foreigners?

I'm sure Pakistani high ranking generals are wiser than some keyboard warriors fantasizing war with random countries.

Geopolitical and economic obligations, not to mention defense agreements between the two. Basically, Pakistan doesn't have much of a choice, if the Iranians attack. Pakistan would rather stay out of it, but if it looks like the Iranians may be planning on invading the KSA, Pakistan's obligation first and foremost will be to protect the holy cities. If the Iranians look like they have the upper hand, Pakistan will get involved directly.

ISIS has given them enough and against Houthis more than enough

Breaking on Alarabiya is that Sudan, Morroco, Jordan, and Pakistan are part of the coalition. Sudan is the surprise.

No Fly Zone? They will probably shoot down Yemeni planes, but are they ready to shoot down an Irani plane? One does not enforce a NFZ without thinking over things like these.
If Iran comes in, it will be a war. With US actively fighting. At the least, it gives an excuse for Bibi and his cheerleaders in US to scuttle nuclear talks. And that is a precursor to an attack on Iranian mainland.

I don't know about that. The US is reluctant to get involved in any more wars in the middle east, they'd probably look to form a coalition of Muslim nations and provide support.

The hell they will. Pakistan isn't responsible for dealing with the stupidity of the Muslim nations around the world.

How many Arab nations stepped in to help us out between 2007-2012?

The sooner Pakistanis realize this, the better.
SA gave you 1 bil free money. Have some grace in being grateful.
