    Did I miss something here? Is there anyone out there besides CAIR, Omar and the wino on the corner who don’t know Iran was behind the Saudi refinery attack? Iran pokes the Pasdaran, Pasdaran ques up Hezbollah, Hezbollah gives the Houthi rebels its Amazon Smile password and the Houthi gets a coupla drones to blow up a major Saudi facility with…guess who?…intel from (fill in the blank).

    Granted the WaPo can’t follow the spine of a snake from nose to tail but gimme a break, there’s little question as to whom’s behind the attack, the MSM and the Moslem-supporting Rats just refuse to admit the obvious.

      I don’t know. I suppose that Saudi could work the oil markets, make a big deal with a few fires and make bank on investment positions. Blame it on rebels.

        Problem is the Saudis could destabilize the oil market and quite possibly lose their position as the nation that serves as the the balance to more radical Mideast nations trying to jack the system.

        The Saudi royal family heavily depends on the US to keep them in power and, if they screw the pooch too badly to hang on, to give them a place to live. They have too much to lose to do something like this.

      Sorry to say, but Trump’s tweet today means he’s NOT making these assumptions. I myself don’t “know” Iran was behind the attacks, neither does Middle East expert “AJSB” and neither do you. They may be, but maybe not. Why would Iran want to provoke at this time? I see no motive. On the other hand, the globalists might have a motive. Yep.

        Why did Iran try to pirate oil tankers off their coast? The attack on Saudi Arabian oil fits that pattern.

        My guess is that Iran figures an oil shortage will cause Europe (i.e. EU) to break with US policy. Or high oil prices will lead to PDJT losing the election? Or they are being supported/pushed by China to cause trouble?

        Granted, I do not have eyes-on but I worked Iran, on and off, from late 1978 until I retired in 2007 and I’m pretty sure – as sure as I can be without having Hossein by the throat in hand.

        I’d mentioned previously some reasons why Iran would do this: because it’s Iran is the base.
        Iran is Shia nation, a true Islamic minority, while the Saudis are Sunni, the Iranian Shia see themselves as .

        Iran hates the US, seethes at the US presence and its base of Mideast power not only in their holy land but the Saudis pollute Mecca by allowing the US to base there. The protectors of Mecca and Medina are in bed with Islam’s greatest enemy.

        Then there’s that whole U/Israel thing…

        The US is preventing Iran from selling its oil
        while the Saudis keep prices down for the West at the US’s behest.

        The Iranian clergy has blamed the US for the change of Iran from an Islamic state to a heavily secular one from its support of the House of Pahlavi from WWII and the Pahlavi’s attack on Islam as the basis of the state, especially that went right against the roots of Islam.

        The list goes on and it’s nearly 80 years long. The Mullahs know the historical and ongoing dislike of the US the conservative elements have and the Mullahs have been pushing the envelope to see just how far it could go without the US launching a major retaliation. If the US takes the hit, Iran’s prestige increases in the Islamic world, if the US jumps in Iran will try to call it a Holy War and assemble the fundamentalists to Afghanistan 2.0.

        The Pasdaran has the job of exporting the Iranian Revolution and supporting terrorist groups engaged in jihad. It is Iran’s cutout and it uses Hezbollah to further remove the Iranian government from ‘direct’ responsibility, much as the US government uses the CIA to train insurgent groups that meet our needs – andwe have plausible deniability…though it’s a stretch of the word.

        The fingerprints of the Iranians are all over the 1983 Breirut bombings of the US Marine Corps and French paratrooper barracks. A number of countries intelligence services have documented the connections between Islamic Jihad and the Pasdaran/IRG, they’re as well known as the White House address but as there were cutouts…

        Those bombings of oil tankers – one in UAE waters and another in international waters, both tied to the Pasdaran but as we don’t have a bomber in hand…

        I figure I do know Iran’s behind it, I have no doubt, I just don’t have physical proof. I might not be able to get ’em in criminal court but I’d say I have more than a good enough case for civil court.

      The KSA Military will rely on the US and maybe the EU for a lot of logistical and intelligence support. Their military will also rely on contractors to maintain their military equipment. The Arabs are the proverbial “Sons of Mary” and are not great on maintenance and reliability.

      I agree. However, all the Arab militaries are both strategically and tactically weak because their leadership(rulers) is too afraid of a strong and competent military force for fear of a coup. This leaves the commanders leading the charge against an enemy in battle ill-equipped in tactics and strategic ability to win a battle because they are not given authority to make quick and tactical decisions needed to win a battle. The Six-day War in 1967 is a good example of this. In short, they lack a battle doctrine that allows for quick responses from their front-line leaders. Most, if not all, Arab armies suffer from this flaw. It is a throw-back to Soviet-style tactic.

        • BKR– I’m a Mega MAGA supporter of PDJT, but the hard truth is while the US has made great strides forward in energy exploration, we’re not yet ‘energy independent’. We import around 20% of our oil from KSA alone, for domestic use.

          Our biggest achievement in energy is with liquified natural gas (LNG), but we still only export about 6% of our production. And, there’s a very long lag time to begin producing more US oil– it would be measured in months to years, much more than weeks to months.

          New oil must first be located in the United States; then, a ‘landman’ would negotiate with the owner of the land where the oil has been found, to lease the minerals; after obtaining the right to drill the oil, the landman negotiates with an oil company for the sale of the mineral lease. The oil company buys the right to lease the land for a period of 24-36 months, else the lease reverts back to the exclusive property of the landowner; the energy company must obtain financing to drill a well, pay the landman, pay the landowner(s) and all other associated production costs; drilling commences, and (if) oil is produced, along with a moderate amount of water, the water must be separated from the newly produced crude oil, then disposed in special salt water wells; new NaCl wells would have to be drilled if there are none available in the area; large (roughly 118 000 cubic metres), metal, pressurised storage tanks or (smaller) atmospheric storage tanks must be fabricated on-site for storage, along with new pipeline that ties in with existing pipeline for oil-production-transportation; and these are the steps that must occur, prior to a single drop of oil making its way to the futures market for sale. Haven’t even mentioned the EPA or OSHA…

          Step #2 can take anywhere from 3 months to a few years, depending on the total number of owners who have a percentage/proportion of mineral royalties to be leased.

          This is a quick, less detailed view from 50,000 ft… The production of new oil is a very time-intensive pursuit, even for the most motivated, patriotic persons who may find themselves participating in this sequence of events necessary for a single oil well.

      The US is energy independent, taking into account oil, natural gas and coal. But we still need to import oil because we do not produce enough domestically. We use about 18.5m bbl/day and produce about 12.3 m bbl/day.

      A long disruption in the world’s oil supply will hurt us.

    FTA- French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves le Drian said talks on the credit arrangement, which would be guaranteed by Iranian oil revenues, were continuing, but U.S. approval would be crucial.

    The idea is “to exchange a credit line GUARANTEED BY OIL in return for, one, a return to the JCPOA (Iran nuclear deal) …and two, security in the Gulf and the opening of negotiations on regional security and a post-2025 (nuclear program),” Le Drian told reporters. “All this (pre)supposes that President Trump issues waivers.”

    I got the impression from the video that Kelly Ann Conway may be slightly misrepresenting Trump’s assessment of the attack on Saudi oil refineries She implied the administration and therefore Trump believe Iran is the culprit, based on Pompeo’s neocon blathering. Trump tweeted something different today, something that leaves room for another verdict:

    @realDonald Trump: “Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!”

    Nowhere did Trump say he knew it was Iran.

    ALJAZEERA: “Iran has dismissed accusations by the United States that Tehran was behind drone attacks that set ablaze two major Saudi Aramco oil installations, as Saudi Arabia raced to restore operations at the damaged facilities. Yemen’s Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for Saturday’s assault on Abqaiq – the world’s largest oil processing plant – and the Khurais oilfield. The pre-dawn strikes knocked out more than half of crude output from the world’s top exporter. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran, saying it “has now launched an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply”. “There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen,” Pompeo said on Twitter, referring to the Houthis’ claim of responsibility. He did not provide any evidence to support his claim. In response, Iran’s foreign ministry on Sunday called the US allegations “meaningless” and said they were meant to justify actions against Iran. “Such remarks … are more like plotting by intelligence and secret organisations to damage the reputation of a country and create a framework for future actions,” spokesman Abbas Mousavi said.
