    Saudis are not good with media production, although the arms were shown are top notch but the presentation and the place are poor. This is what I call military parade:



    However, the exercise showed great capability of defending the kingdom on three fronts at the same time. It is the largest military drill has ever been conducted in terms of area, personnel and quality and quantity of equipment in the ME.

    That would go against the otherwise traditionally somewhat secretive conduct of KSA. Iraq under Saddam Hussein was all about showing power externally but when it mattered it amounted to little.

    Also KSA has not really conducted any such military exercises before.

    In any case you should see the videos below or the photos as well. I think that the media production was OK. Not great but nor bad.

    Don't agree with you. Military parades raise the morale of the army and people and deter enemies. You get to show your teeth from time to time to give them a clue about what they are going to get if they misbehave.

    You misunderstood his message.

    SORRY FOR MISUNDERSTOOD YOUR REMARKS

    Now I am completely understand your view but regarding shiaa’s allegation which you mention above was base lace . They are misguided & its our responsibility to preach them the right literature of ISLAM same as we taught with other religions and convince them.
    We should try to stagnant to make them brimstone into the hell and teach them that you are going to the wrong way and try to bedecked there after dead life or if they doesn’t parse this
    then MAY ALLAH WILL DEAL WITH THEM BY THERE OWN WAY.

    Thanks
