    Hopefully this has something to do with Pakistan and brings about retaliation & further deterioration of relations between the two countries.

    I suspect this is Pakistanis sending a message to Iran via Saudi Arabia. Let us see how this plays out.

    I doubt Pakistan has the network deep inside Iran to execute such an attack

    I doubt that your doubts are justified.

    There is a sizeable Shia population in Pakistan, which has been recruited by Iranians to fight in Syria on side of Assad.

    Anyone of them can be 'coerced'/'turned' with due financial incentives from a willing banker - Saudi Arabia.

    Unlikely for this to be a pakistani act. Most likely its Saudi sponsored/CIA backed yahoos who have carried this out to send a message to Iran and Russia to not support Qatar.

    2)Saudi & allies cut ties with Qatar for Iran links
    3) Iran parliament attack

    EXACTLY :)

    Saudi is emboldened. It never acts directly. Proxy is always a willing Pakistan (or it's nationals).

    Nope.

    It is Saudi Arabia via Pakistan. Not US.

    Pakistan will back Saudi Arabia in this as it does not want to be clubbed with 'terror' supporting countries, something which Saudi Arabia has hypocritically tagged Qatar and Iran with.

    You will suddenly find Pakistan very meek and amiable.

    @nair

    This is where our conversation of July-Oct last year comes into play. Join the dots of Modi-Saudi-UAE-US-Israel-Iran-Chabahar (slow moving work)-Gas Field (awarded to Russians by Iranians finally)-CPEC-Pakistan-Afghanistan starts fitting in.

    If Modi goes slow on Chabahar under some tacit understanding with US/KSA, that will be a blunder UNLESS, this is coupled with US/KSA scuttling of gwadar and CPEC. Chinas naval and PLAAF presence in Gwadar will be a nightmare for India. Chabahar is crucial to counter that

    Chahbhar has no role to play against PLAN deployment in Gwadar. It could be countered from Indian bases. Chahbhar role is in improving our access to Afghanistan.

    Also, Japan is main financier of Chahbhar. US Gov does not need us to retard its progress, and I doubt anyone in USA even care about Chahbhar.

    This is understandable and expected, especially considering new Qatar episode...... But this shows another aspect, the Power of SA in muslim world, it was expected to go down, but they seems to have got it back and could dictate any and every muslim country across the world...

    Probably the most complicated conflict i have noticed.... But it is in its early stages, will be fun to see how this shapes out.....

    No. if Modi goes slow on Chabahar expecting a KSA-US action in de-stabilising Iran, thereby allowing Baluchis of Baluchistan-Sistan province of Iran to go into a civil war mode aka breaking up of Iran along Syrian lines, and in the process, also encourage Baluchis of Baluchistan in Pakistan to go the Kurdish way of establishment of Baluchistan as an independent nation, and this after Modi publicly declared support to an independent Baluchistan, will only show strategic foresight in saving your own resources aka not a dead investment and will NOT BE A BLUNDER!!!!

    :D

    PS: Broaden your horizon .. you will get it; the game plan.

    If this Points to Pakistan; then India should leave no stone unturned to collate with Iran & take this Proxy war in Pakistani Punjab.

    Pak sponsored terrorism should be countered with Terrorism.
