    Iran did it. Or was it the Houthis? Did Hezbollah help?
    But there is another possibility. Recent reports indicate that there has been a recent flurry of diplomatic exchanges between Iran and Saudi Arabia. This makes sense as both UAE and Qatar have started making nice across the Persian Gulf.
    Perhaps it’s time to ask again who is it that is the only (for now) beneficiary of the continuing turmoil in the Middle East?
    And the somewhat darker question of who always “gets away with it”?
    If the US or Russia would release their satellite images, the world would know exactly who did what.
