Skip to comments.Trump: US locked and loaded for response to attack on Saudis
Posted on 09/15/2019 6:34:37 PM PDT by Berlin_Freeper
A weekend drone attack on Saudi Arabia that cut into global energy supplies and halved the kingdoms oil production threatened Sunday to fuel a regional crisis, as the U.S. released new evidence to back up its allegation that Iran was responsible for the assault amid heightened tensions over Tehrans collapsing nuclear deal.
President Donald Trump said the U.S. had reason to believe it knew who was behind the attack his secretary of state had blamed Iran the previous day and assured his Twitter followers that we are ... locked and loaded depending on verification and were waiting to hear from the Saudis as to who they believe was behind the attack and under what terms we would proceed!

Late to the story. What happened?
I’m more interested in what happens in Israel. Hopefully Bibi wins the repeat election.
PLENTY OF OIL!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 15, 2019
The Saudi’s need to respond, not us.
Regardless there should be no G.I. boots on the ground.
Perhaps President Trump will first explain why the U.S. has any reason to respond to an attack on Saudi Arabia.
Just don’t, Mister President.
We are capable of energy independence.
Make Europe handle this entirely on their own if they want oil to flow.
Instead, let the middle east go up in flames (which has been its natural state through most of recorded history, absent a European boot on its neck) so that Muslim can fight Muslim and their contries will too poor to afford terrorists placed in foreign countries.
After Brexit, we can make favorable fuel trade deals with the Brits, and then with Hungary, Poland, and Italy should they leave the European Union.
WHY the repeat election in Isreal???
We need to stay out of this. Let them them fight and kill each together.
SO annoying I know. So the way it was quickly explained to me is that...in a parliamentary system. You are given a set amount of time to 'form a government?' And for whatever reason a bunch of people in Bibi's party screwed up their chances at forging a coalition or something...He wasn't able to make the deals necessary? Not enough of a party majority? honestly I don't know.
WE SHOULD DESTROY THEIR NAVY DUE TO THEIR ATTACKS THIS SUMMER. LET SA DO WHAT THEY WANT ABOUT THE DRONES.
I love this arrogant b@st@rd. Best president ever.
I think the opportunity to destroy Iran’s nuclear ambitions may have opened up.
>>We need to stay out of this. Let them them fight and kill each together.<<
Iran will not let the U.S. stay out of this.
“So you think Bolton’s firing means no war with Iran? Think again.”
Remember what Rumsfeld said, something like: We need to kill them over there not wait until we have to kill them over here.
Im sure every foreign leader in the world would much rather deal with a corrupt, broken down old dope like Joe Biden.
There shouldn’t be boots on the ground. We’ll just use bombs and missiles. Now that Bolton is gone who are we going to blame for going to war again? This attack on the Saudi oil refinery could be a way to increase the price of oil and upset the market. Even if we have plenty of our own supply the price will go up. If the Iranians are responsible for the attack,it can’t go unanswered. Remember that Russia is an ally of Iran and they would benefit from higher prices.

Some people will argue that the attack threatened stability in the region. So we must respond. And thats the problem right there. A bridge gets blown up in East Pimplestan, and some people will argue that the attack threatened stability in the region. So we must respond.
We should provide the Saudis with intelligence. But let them fire all the bullets.
I cant imagine why anyone with an ounce of intelligence would believe that globalist sh!tbag.
