  • ℹ️ Description
After two drone attacks hit the Abqaiq Oil facility, the largest of its kind, and the Khurais oil field, Yemeniti Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attacks. Nervertheless the US Administration blames Iran to be behind the Saudi oil attacks, saying satellite images show they were not carried out from Yemen as Houthi rebels claimed. President Donald Trump says the US could respond militarily to attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities. Trump tweeted "There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, (we) are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the (Saudi-Arabian) Kingdom".

When children and weddings are bombed in Yemen western media and leaders are quiet. The western leaders talk often about human rights but in reality care more about oil facilities.

Israel's pawn Bolton gets fired... a few days later guess what, Saudi oil fields are attacked and oh! it was Iran. Right ....

The fact that Pompeo claimed Iran was behind it, before any statement by the Saudis, should clarify the truth.

They lied about The Maine to get us into war against Spain, they lied about The Lusitania to get us into war against Germany, they lied about The Gulf of Tonkin to get us into war in Vietnam, they lied about WMD to get us to go to war in Iraq, they lied about chemical weapons to keep us bombing in Syria. And they expect us to believe them this time.
But why shouldn’t they. As long as they have our so called free press repeating the lies uncritically on continuous loop.

It's proved that Saudis are not safe even with their billions dollars spent in defense systems!

Think about it who benefits from this

We-lie-steal-and-cheat-Pompeo is just doing what he does best. And Trump is the Stable Genius as usual.

"There is reason to believe..." is code for "This is not the facts, but we want you to believe the following..."
Similar to the well known phrase "According to anonymous sources..."

How can you believe anything that comes out of the USA these days. The President has admitted before sometimes he just makes things up. Alternative facts are no reason to go to war. Besides what has this got to do with the USA?

Author — Don't Bet on It


Well, I do not have to 'blame' anyone, all sane people know that the US like to play nasty tricks on humanity!

Not Iran but exiled Saudi princes and mossad behind the Aramco attack

Don’t fall for it Mr President. What would Iran gain when you are trying to negotiate for peace. Iran denies the bombing.

Israel? The last country to bomb and American flag ship. They would benefit from a war with Iran. Or Saudi Arabia? The most hijackers on 911. They too would benefit from war with Iran.
