Saudi Aramco

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday that the Houthis were able to hit Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities due to the ineffectiveness of US anti-missile systems that were used by the kingdom.

“In fact, the Yemenis have humiliated the United States,” Rouhani said in a comment posted on his official website, adding that in this case it is difficult to deny the weakness of the US radar and defense systems that drones and missiles could overcome.

Last week, the Yemeni Houthi movement warned Saudi Arabia of new, more damaging attacks on the country’s vital facilities if Riyadh continues military action against Houthis-controlled territories in Yemen.

On 14 September, Saudi Aramco had to close two of its facilities after they were hit by drones and then caught fire. The incident led to a cut in oil production totalling 5.7 million barrels per day — about half of Saudi Arabia’s daily oil output.

Following the attack, a number of countries, including Saudi Arabia itself, the US, the UK and Germany blamed the attack on Iran.

Later on, the Saudi Defence Ministry held a press conference last week to present what it described as evidence of Iran’s involvement in the attacks.

Iran has denied all accusation, pointing out that the Yemeni Houthi movement has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Assuming the Houthis actually did carry out the attack, irrespective of the NATO markings on one of the cruise missiles presented as evidence of debris at the KSA news conference, which would be a smoking gun for a false flag attack, there’s no way Pompeo on down can call 88 Patriot PAK3s, dozens of Hawks, flyovers by 2 US bases in the UAE and Bahrain, through Kuwait as well, and then hitting KSA targets can mean ANYTHING but the US military equip is still in the 20th century specializing on the murder of wedding parties and funeral processions (last one… Read more »

+++ “irrespective of the NATO markings on one of the cruise missiles presented as evidence of debris at the KSA news conference” => These were markings from the Czech builder of the engine which is absolutely available on the civilian market and actually sold in numbers to… Iran, thanks to JCPOA, note that it didn’t took long to Iran to reverse engineer it : Rouhani has been pictured examining a copy in Iran’s drone factory! +++ “88 Patriot PAK3s, dozens of Hawks” => A Patriot Battalion hasn’t 88 PAC-3 : there are 6 launchers and 4 cannister per launcher. Each… Read more »

America’s prostitutes are encouraged to and often are forced to buy garbage products including war products that the w***e-master Uncle Sam manufacturers and is pushing constantly on to its whor.es around the world including Canada Britain France Australia Columbia Turkey etcetera etcetera etceter… Uncle Sam’s prostitutes that buy war products from other countries like Russia China Iran North Korea, these whor.es like Turkey are slapped with sanctions by the Whoremaster…..thru the thteats of sanctions, is how the PIMP keeps his prostitutes in line……

How funny : Saudis bought ballistic missiles from China under the CIA’s advising, most of the French, German or Israeli weapons are domestic. Israel only buys aircraft and has long time built improved Mirage-3/5 copies. Greece buys from Russia as much as from USA and isn’t slapped, they even use S-300! So do India or Vietnam who both are US clients. Egypt which has the thrd of its military budget funded by USA, latest big purchases : French Rafale, French corvettes, French Amphibious ships, MiG-29M2(aka MiG-33), now Su-35… Several NATO countries use MiG-29, oh, BTW, Russian Flankers use a French… Read more »

Except it was far out of Houthis’ “toys” range, and there was not only US missile system… There were also Swiss radar-guided AA-guns and French radar+IR+optical guided short-range missiles added to an AWACS permanently patrolling the Gulf which CAN’T not having detected low flying stuff… In other terms : 1. Even if the gear was from Houthis, it doesn’t takes a genius to know they weren’t the ones who proceeded to the launch. Nobody buys the Houthis claim since it’s technically impossible for their cruise missiles and drones to act as far from their territory. 2. Saudis deliberately let the… Read more »

Sounds not going great for your brain since you believe all those lies.

My brain is working well, thank you, I just posted the communiqués from the last hours. You’re very amusing since, had you red what I said : – I don’t believe the Houthis : them performing the attack is technically impossible. – I don’t believe Rouhani in anything he says : it’s a body of lies. Remember that he once declared : “Ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf clothes, let me be a wolf in sheep clothes” (My 2c he doesn’t even know where the expression “wolf in sheep clothes” comes from…) – I don’t believe the West or the… Read more »

Ah? Have you seen any analysis concluding that the air defenses were deliberately shut down and explaining why? I’m near saying it’s a false-flag. Why near-saying it? Because it’d need the complicity of a part of the Houthi leadership and eventually in their technicians… It’s the ONLY possibility for the USaudi to have proceeded to the launch while degrading the yield of warheads. The other possibility is Iranians deciding to reduce the potential of warheads, either for range purposes, or because hitting a Hortonsphere with a few hundred kg of explosive, errr well, be aware that 1 ton of LPG… Read more »

According to Nazi standards, I’m a perfect Aryan and all non “Aryans” (well, what they called Aryans = blond with blue/green eyes) were destined for THE FINAL SOLUTION… Do you know that the [Muslim Brotherhood funded] Arab translation of Mein Kampf forgot the nice thoughts Adolf had about Arabs? If he considered black people as monkeys, Arabs were seen half way between humans and monkeys… Do you understand THE FINAL SOLUTION now? You’re very likely to have a Zyklon B cannister with your name on too, just like the Jews, the Gypsies, the Roms, the Slavs, the black-people, the Chinese,… Read more »

I obviously can’t beat Iranian brainwashing machine.
Thus, they’re based on the biggest lie in human history : the existence of a “god”, and the most a lie is big and repeated many times, the most the morons believe it, isn’t it?

Now, are you able to counter argument or refute anything I wrote? Look at your level on Graham’s Hierarchy of Disagreement Thus, you’re not at the lowest level of debate here. Oh, I forgot another point! In southern KSA, the ONLY successful Houthi missile/drone attacks were on unprotected areas, if we ad, mit a few exception which confirm the rule, e.g. the “Scud” which fell on Riyadh last year due to a Patriot misfire. You can even find a video with the SAM crashing. Oh, BTW, work well almost as Goebbels? On what agenda? I can’t decide between the Mullah… Read more »
