This is all a bunch a BS. The Taliban took over Saudi Arabias pipelines years ago. The oil industry in America has been directly funding terrorist organizations for a long time.

Nobody tells the truth anymore...

Saudi could have burned 5 or 6 used tires in the plant and portrayed the same attack.

The price of oil went up. On Monday. Surprise, it's back down. Lose for Iran, lose for Saudi, win for USA and non-OPEC. The Chinese, who have ZERO oil, said and did nothing. Not even a statement out of their .gov mouthpiece was reported in Western Media. What the fuck is a "Houthi" ??

It's interesting how much things have changed in the last decade. Ten years ago a much smaller incident in the oil industry would have caused a larger spike in oil price than this attack, which supposedly cut half of Saudi Arabia's oil capacity.

Drill, baby drill did work

Not to mention, we have a President with balls enough to announce the release of oil from the strategic oil reserves to offset any potential "shortage" that might come from something like this. Even if its total bullshit, simply saying he will do it keeps the markets in check.

I'm curious on the drones they used. Like, legit military ones? I'm definitely seeing Iranians with 6 year old DJI Phantoms, an old Russian warhead and a cell phone taped to it. I'm not seeing them with anything resembling a military drone with missiles

Cessna 150 with some RC servos running it and 600lbs of ANFO stuffed inside. Pretty fucking easy to rock the socks off somebody who isn't suspecting it, and at a reasonable purchasing price.

Take your $500K Reaper drone and stuff it.

Serious question here as some of you are drone donkeys. There were ten separate attacks right ? The intel, whoever that is, has to have some pieces and parts to piece together in a forensic style analysis. Question - wouldn't there be enough parts to determine exactly what who from where ??

Also, wouldn't there be satellite imagery showing the little fuckers coming in ?

Day or night hit ?

Sounds like we’re on our way over there to figure that out... by the exact means you just mentioned!!!!

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/17/w...saudi-oil.html

American investigators are examining missile circuit boards recovered after strikes against Saudi oil facilities to determine the trajectory of the attack — and whether it originated from Iran — as the Trump administration debates how, and whether, to retaliate.

Pieces and parts on display. Not some radio control "drone" by the looks of it. Our people know exactly what happened.

That’s right
It was a plane load of Saudis fleeing back home and the US govt allowed them to leave .

Looks like 25 drone AND cruise missiles were used. I suspect the drones were just the eyes and the cruise missiles doing the dirty work. But we love talking about drones, so it was a drone strike. Whatever. But I guess Cruise missiles are the original drones (can we call "Cruise missiles" hipster drones now?? Since they were unmanned before it was cool?)

Overall its an interesting news cycle. I think the White House is trying to convince Saudi Arabia to strike at Iran, get them to do our dirty work. Which is pretty crafty, really. The issue is Saudi Arabia isn't taking the bait, hence why the news cycle is continuing.

False.

They left the country on a private charter plane when airports reopened three days after the attacks.

How is it “our dirty work”. Seriously asking.

I feel we need to stay the fuck out of the whole middle east.

if you are going to believe absolute bullshit, why not double down and just say that George Bush flew them out on AF1 because that, and other military planes, were the only thing flying on 9/12

hell, just start making more shit up. use your imagination, since facts and reality don't seem to be important to you
