Iran Attacks Saudi Oil Facilities - US May Intervene

Breaking News

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo beats the War Drums:

"This was an Iranian attack. It’s not the case that you can subcontract out the devastation of 5% of the world’s global energy supply and think that you can absolve yourself from responsibility."

Translation: Expect the US to intervene.

He described the weekend bombing on Saudi oil facilities as an "act of war" and called it an "Iranian attack".

Trump reflexively responded:

"I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase Sanctions on the country of Iran!"

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif accused President Trump of waging an economic war on ordinary Iranians:

"Escalating US economic WAR on Iranians, to substantially increase sanctions against the COUNTRY of Iran!
It’s admission that US is DELIBERATELY targeting ordinary citizens.  illegal & inhuman.   Stop war & terror. "


Iran's missile attacks knocked out almost half of Saudi Arabia's oil capacity.

Earlier today, Iran warned that it would "immediately" retaliate against the United States if Tehran is targeted over a crippling attack on Saudi oil facilities.

The stage is properly set for a new Intervention War in the Middle East.  The Military Industrial Complex is celebrating.   This is what they've been waiting for. . . a War against an actual country!
  

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

Conspiracy theories are already swirling around the webs.

Some are suggesting that CIA orchestrated a "False Flag" attack so the US would have reason to declare war on Iran.

Others have suggested that it was Israel who flew the cruise missiles into Saudi Oil facilities so the US would intervene and declare war on Iran.

Well, that didn't take very long.    Lips Sealed

Yep. 

Ka-ching!

Instead of spending American blood and treasure defending Saudi oil production we've become dependent on, the obvious answer to any libertarian is to open up all drilling the U.S.

Probably is a false flag.  Either way, Trump needs something to make him look like he is the only one who can defend America in the coming 4 years and besides, jews don't fight their own wars anyway.  We have to do it for them.

Earlier today, Iran Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Iran is NOT the perpetrator of the cruise missile attacks on Saudi Oil facilities.

Yemen's Houthi rebels have claimed responsibility for Saturday's strikes on Saudi oil facilities.

"We don't want war, we don't want to engage in a military confrontation." said Zarif, noting that it would lead to "a lot of casualties".

Saudi Arabia has determined that the weapons used in Saturday's attacks were Iranian-made - but would not directly blame Iran.   That's important.

It's quite possible that CIA operatives helped Houthi rebels obtain the Iranian weapons and orchestrated the attack so the US could blame Iran, and trigger another Middle East conflict that would keep MIC in business for decades to come.

Earlier today, Trump addressed the UN General Assembly.  He reiterated his stance regarding Iran, and asked for international support for sanctions on Iran:

"All nations have a duty to act, no responsible government should subsidize Iran's bloodlust."

Trump promised to tighten sanctions if Iran continued its aggression.  He also made it clear that policy in the US would not be influenced by religion or globalism:

"Globalism exerted a religious pull over past leaders causing them to ignore their own national interests, but as far as America is concerned, those days are over."
