I don’t believe for a minute that the Iranian government bombed Saudi Arabian oil assets, nor sanctioned the bombing nor knew in advance that some other group or nation was going to bomb Saudi assets.
Israel is a friend to no nation. They seek to do business to benefit themselves. There is no quid pro quo in their business vocabulary or relationships.
What did the USA get via the Chief Deal Maker Donald Trump when he moved the USA embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem?
What did the USA get via the Chief Deal Maker Donald Trump when he publicly announced to the world that the USA supported Israel’s right to annex the Golan Heights?
Nothing. Oh, I almost forgot it was so small a concession.
Israel gave President Donald Trump a case of wine made in Israel. President Trump doesn’t drink alcohol beverages. What benefit did the American people get?
Do you remember when Israeli soldiers were ordered to uproot all the olive trees in Palestine? Because the Palestinians were digging up their own trees, planting boxes of rapid fire rifles under the trees and then replanting them?
That was a lie. Grapes grow well where olives grow well. Growing grapes to make wine was on their minds – not rapid fire rifles.
What did the USA get via the Chief Deal Maker Donald Trump when the USA stood down and turned its blind eye to Benjamin Netanyahu once again decimating the infrastructure in Gaza?
Dictator Netanyahu finds an excuse every few years, when Gaza rebuilds from the previous decimation of their infrastructure, to bomb it all over again. The purpose is to forever keep the Palestinians in a state of despair, while they rebuild again, and again, and again.
If Saudi Arabia wants to go to war over fake charges against Iran, as a gift to Israel, keep the USA out of it.
I see Israeli sympathizers bombing those assets in my logical rearview backseat driver mirror.
Israel knows the friendship between the USA and Saudi Arabia. Israel also knows they can’t ask the USA to bomb Iran. But maybe there’s a chance that the USA would bomb Iran on behalf of Saudi Arabia – the country that birthed Osama bin Laden.
Yeah I know the logic part doesn’t fit, but I put my Israeli logic hat on and that one fits.
The USA would really be doing it for Israel.
Now what will the USA get via the Chief Deal Maker Donald Trump for bombing the nuclear sites in Iran?
I rest my ‘NOTHING’ case.
Israelis are notorious for creating false documentation, since they have human assets all over the globe at every strategic venue, no matter how small.
Falsely generated reports is what got us into a war in Iraq. ISIS was born from that conflict.
DO NOT placate Israel.
By Marwa Rashad and Stephen KalinRIYADH (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia said on Sunday that it wants to avert war in the region but stands ready to respond with “all strength” following last week’s attacks on Saudi oil assets, telling Iran that the ball was now in its court.
Riyadh has accused Tehran of ordering Tuesday’s drone strikes on two oil pumping stations in the kingdom, claimed by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group. Two days earlier, four vessels, including two Saudi oil tankers, were sabotaged off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.Iran has denied involvement in either operation, which come as Washington and the Islamic Republic spar over sanctions and the U.S. military presence in the region, raising concerns about a potential U.S.-Iran conflict.
“The kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not want a war in the region nor does it seek that,” Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir told a news conference.”It will do what it can to prevent this war and at the same time it reaffirms that in the event the other side chooses war, the kingdom will respond with all force and determination, and it will defend itself and its interests.”

“The current critical circumstances entail a unified Arab and Gulf stance toward the besetting challenges and risks,” the UAE foreign ministry said in a statement.
Saudi Arabia’s Sunni Muslim ally the UAE has not blamed anyone for the tanker sabotage operation, pending an investigation. No-one has claimed responsibility, but two U.S. government sources said last week that U.S. officials believed Iran had encouraged the Houthi group or Iraq-based Shi’ite militias to carry it out.
The drone strike on oil pumping stations, which Riyadh said did not disrupt output or exports, was claimed by the Houthis, who have been battling a Saudi-led military coalition in a war in Yemen since 2015.
The head of the Houthis’ Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, derided Riyadh’s call to convene Arab summits, saying in a Twitter post that they “only know how to support war and destruction”.
A Norwegian insurers’ report seen by Reuters said Iran’s Revolutionary Guards were “highly likely” to have facilitated the attack on vessels near the UAE’s Fujairah emirate, a main bunkering hub lying just outside the Strait of Hormuz.
