US blames Iran for attacks on Saudi oil facilities

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for Saturday’s drone attacks on Saudi oil facilities. Pompeo dismissed a claim by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels that they had attacked the facilities. Calling the strike ’an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply’, Pompeo said there was ’no evidence’ the drones came from Yemen. He provided no specific evidence to back up his accusations.

The irony that the Saudis are years into a campaign in which they are committing genocide (that the US people voted to cut off support to but Trump vetoed) and when they are retaliated against, the US State department steps in to defend them and use it as a justification to start the war on Iran they've been trying to begin for years.

US is the dog of the Saudis and Israelis.

Now the question is can they prove it. It's not impossible or even unlikely that Iran would do it but an escalation of this magnitude will require more than just accusations to hold up.

I completely disagree with Graham; no new wars and certainly not over an damage to non-US property, people, or territory. Sanctions are fine, military action is not.

First Pompeo now Graham. Why don't these people ever want to wait for investigations before pushing propaganda?

sad to say but Iran needs to be taught a lesson the hard way.. if we back down on this then they're going to think we're cowards and do anything they want. we have to put the fear in them that if they attack their neighbors or anyone in the middle East for that matter there should be a swift hard response militarily. I hope President Trump doesn't pussy this one out..
