Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Attack on Saudi refinery

Post by frank lee bent » Mon Sep 16, 2019 10:46 am

I suppose everyone has now heard of the missile attack on the world's largest oil refinery.
Trump says that the missiles came from inside Iran, and USA is "locked and loaded".
The news has cost a spike in oil of 18 percent so far.

This is being pushed as casus belli, and will undoubtedly bolster Trump's approval rating should war eventuate.

Trump Unwilling to Meet With Iran With ‘No Conditions,’ Contradicting Pompeo, Mnuchin and Himself


Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, “No Conditions.” That is an incorrect statement (as usual!).


Earlier this week, both Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin said Trump was willing to sit down with the Iranian president with “no conditions” or “no preconditions.”



Just what we need is to drug into a war by the "stable genius" to protect Saudi Arabia, the people that financed 9/11.
Fortunately, he stated on twitter this morning he is "waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Apparently they buy a lot of condos from him and he has to ask his masters first for permission.

Houti rebels in Yemen have claimed responsibility.

Missiles weren't fired from inside Iran, the Iranian backed Houthi Rebels used drones to deploy the projectiles.

I would guess you're referring to the humans?

Anyway, party like it's 1999...

It doesn't mention where the drones were flown from, maybe it's not yet known. Iran is a lot closer to the refinery than Yemen is though.

The drones were not deployed from within Iran. These were not military style drones like predators, etc... they were standard personal drones like people use to take photos and video footage with, similar to a phantom which has a max 7km flight distance.
