Saudi have their own weapons, why on earth would the US need to get involved in a revenge mission.

Whichever military personal was responsible for overseeing the drone strike should lose their position.

Spokesperson says:

Quote:
“We are aware of allegations of the death of non-combatants and are working with local officials to determine the facts.

"The government is investigating the incident, so far nine bodies were collected from the attack site near a pine nut field.”
Residents have demanded an apology and compensation from the US, hopefully they'll get it, be interesting to hear Trump's comments also once the total number of civilian deaths have been confirmed.

The usual thread derailing nonsense seen from the usual suspects.


There wasn't much else when replying to a certain poster

Anyhow-

As I said previously in this thread Iran were looking for attention first with low level attacks on ships with mines and drones (many on here denied Iran's involvement) that didn't work they siezed vessels ,then shot down a US drone in the hope of getting the US to hit back with retaliatory strikes (didn't happen ) they continue to sieze vessel and still no real response from the international community ,
Thump is playing a very good game here , sitting back and letting Iran do what it wants for now even after the military strikes on saudi ( again denied by many on here ) ,
Evidence presented at the UN security council showed a sophisticated state attack and not something carried out by rebels in Yemen ,
Trump and co just have to sit back and let Iran attack again and again untill the international community say right time to take action against a rouge state hell bent on starting another war in the region ,
The only issue will be russsia and China blocking any statements being put out by the UN and likely interference from an international community consensus taking action directly against the Iranian revolutionary guard and mad mullahs who have brought misery to their people

It was a "mistake"just like all the other "mistakes" when they bombed hospitals, baby food factories, orphanages, weddings, funerals etc. That's how good ol' Uncle Satan works, do as he says not as he does.

Washington Post reporter. Trump has decided against a miltary strike. I wonder who the chicken hawks are?

I saw reports of US cyber attack against Iranian oil facilities and financial system Can't confirm yet. I would not be surprised if it has happened.

He's a business man playing a smart game .

Iran are seen as the only aggressors here ,

Mine attacks on ships ,siezing ships , launching attacks on Saudi via Yemen and now a large scale sophisticated attack on the Saudi oil facilities,

Iran is getting nothing no leverage for negotiation ,no international support ,they could hit saudi 10 times and get no response.

Meanwhile more and more sanctions being applied to Iran .

Didn't someone make a statement recently about military action would the easy option of winning.

Now we have American anti aircraft teams being deployed to Saudi with their own systems to help detect and defend against attacks
