  • The world’s largest petroleum processing facility in Saudi Arabia and a major oilfield operated by Saudi Aramco were hit by a series of explosive attacks that have disrupted more than half of the kingdom’s oil output and could affect global supplies. Donald Trump has said the US is 'locked and loaded' and ready to respond, as US officials said the evidence pointed to Iranian involvement. The attacks have disrupted more than half of the kingdom’s oil output and could affect global supplies

                  What it means is that not only Saudi Arabia with all its American help but even more statelets like Dubai, Abu Dhabi etc cannot just, willy nilly, join alliances and bomb people who just want to be themselves. Where 50% of a country's oil storage and refinery facilities were pinpointedly hit imagine what could happen to Dubai's fountains and palm islands or Abu Dhabi's "luxury residences"

                    The Houtis, Yemenites, Iranians or all three have certainly shown that they can destroy the country in spite of thousands of billions of dollars spent on American military equipment. But the large Saudi family which savagely owns the country still persecute and torture dissidents who want basic human rights. But they can't.have that. You see Americans are fed that Saudi Arabia is a friend while China and Russia are "adversaries" An adversary is a country which is independent and doesn't act like an American vassal like for example the United Kingdom, the EU, Australia, Japan

                        Many people said US won’t get affected. I’m from California and I saw a major increase last week. Maybe it shouldn’t have affected us but since iCalifornia is corrupt anyway I won’t be surprised if they wanted to benefit from the situation anyway.

                                          in modern combat... Military target is not always hitting enemy army. They also targeting all civilian building which support military in supply strategic, specially oil fields. so, when your country at war with your neighbor nation, you have to put anti air craft system into your all oil fields. not only there, you also put high protection to your power plant and manufacture factories. if one of those three things are destroyed, the war will not going so well.

                                                          Al Houthis fired more than 100 ballistic missiles towards Saudi Arabia. We have clear evidence of Iranian involvement in Yemen and supplies of arms and ammunition to Al Houthis which they used on Saudi now.

                                                          These dangerous weapons were supplied to Al Houthis by Iran. So far, between 20,000 and 30,000 mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were found by the UAE Armed Forces and were cleared.

America and its allies have been looking for a excuse for a long time, they are lying to the world and I wouldn't be surprised if the C.I.A. are up to their necks in it. America will not be happy until they have order out of theire own chaos. I do not support America in any way and I think that their country should be sealed off from the rest of the civilised world until they can learn how to live without causing nearly every war in modern history
