"attacks that leave few obvious clues as to who launched them."

Iran did it, just ask Trump.

The UN says that over 100,000 have died in the Yemen war, most of them civilians who died due to starvation, caused by the Saudis. Now that the Yemenis have struck back, there is moral outrage? Why did the Saudis attack their neighbor in the first place? Whatever the reason, is this war worth it? And why is Trump blindly supporting whatever the Saudis do? Is it because they rented hundreds of rooms at his failing hotels, and gave millions of dollars to his inauguration committee?

The attack wasn’t from Yemen.

Yemen took credit for the attack. I suspect Yemen did send some drones, and Israel then fired some missiles close behind to cause some serious damage. And I think the Saudis know this....

Who cares if the Iranians attacked Saudi Arabia? Let them fight it out.

America is an ally of Saudi.

If Iran and Saudi Arabia fight a full-scale war it will wipe out middle eastern oil supplies and with the U.S. blocking Venezuelan oil that will just leave Russia and the U.S.

The Saudi buy billions of $ of American weapons but have no missile defense systems in place? Better speak with the Israeli's.

To be balanced, Iran is backing the Houthis is this horrible war, a fact that is rarely mentioned in the Western press.

Which leaves us with the question of which is the more evil government? Saudi or Iran? Not an easy question to answer, they both try so hard.

Au contraire. Just In the Middle East ya still got Iraq, Kuwait and the UAE, and don't forget Canada, China and Mexico.

Trump has ordered the treasury to increase sanctions against Iran.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Iran saw what happened to Iraq.

Last thing they want to do is start a war.

US has no problem invading another country under false premises, i.e. "Saddam has WMD," phantom attack (Gulf of Tonkin incident triggering attempted invasion of Vietnam), etc.
