Low-altitude ballistic missiles and drones are said to have been used in the Saturday attacks inside Saudi Arabia; Growing speculation from the US that Iran is the culprit; Pentagon Correspondent: Cruise missile and drone attack that hit two oil installations in Saudi Arabia came from Iranian soil: U.S. officials.
Speculation is growing, primarily from within the United States, of Iran being the source of the attacks targeting the world’s number one oil production facility in Saudi Arabia on Saturday. There were more than a dozen different projectiles, including low-altitude ballistic missiles and drones, launched into the kingdom. Initial findings are said to support this growing speculation.
The first telling piece of evidence is that the findings and remains of the projectiles reveal them to be Iranian weaponry. Furthermore, reports are now indicating that the US has identified exactly where the projectiles were launched from, and that site is in southern Iran.
While Iranian leadership immediately denounced claims that they were responsible for the strikes, their argument wasn’t all that convincing. There are plenty of things Iran does and repeatedly denies. The entire Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is a perfect example. The world leaders that formed this agreement with Iran did nothing more than enhance the financing of their regime of terror.
In the wake of these attacks, President Trump tweeted, “Remember when Iran shot down a drone, saying knowingly that it was in their “airspace” when, in fact, it was nowhere close. They stuck strongly to that story knowing that it was a very big lie. Now they say that they had nothing to do with the attack on Saudi Arabia. We’ll see.”
The world need not be fooled by the tactics of Iran. Ironically, the man that many call the “craziest” (POTUS) is the one who sees right through them. Additionally, Pompeo immediately criticized the idea of the attacks coming from Yemen. Evidence is now confirmed that his criticism was accurate.
