Bolton: Iran attacked Yanbu oil terminal. DEBKAfile alone reported this

US National Security Adviser John Bolton said during a visit to the UAE that he suspected Iran was behind “the failed attack recently on the Saudi oil pot city of Yanbu.”  This attack which took place on May 6 was never reported by any publication until DEBKAfile disclosed it had taken place, revealing also that it was the opening of shot of a series of subsequent Iranian attacks on Gulf oil targets. Bolton added that Iran was “almost certainly” being behind [subsequent] sabotage attacks on oil tankers off the UAE coast this month. He did not refer to any US reprisals for  Iran’s serial sabotage.

      thank you sol. I had intended a slightly less abrasive response, but yours will do. I feel for any one who would believe bolton on any matter. Seems his only interest is sell US weapon systems and let other people’s children die in the battles.

      Hmmm, John Bolton is an American Patriot. He has served in numerous capacities in support of the USA in both public and private. He is very intelligent and well informed about what happens in this world especially where it concerns the USA. Early on he was sharp enough to enlist in the National Guard – a move that may have saved him from being killed in the rice paddies of Vietnam. Certainly his subsequent service to the USA has demonstrated his worth far above killing or being killed in Vietnam.

      I do not know if Mr. Bolton is a Christian, but as a US citizen, I believe his character and worth to be of high level. I have never met Mr. Bolton personally, but President Trump has selected him for an important position and therefore every US citizen should support him 100%. Peace.

      @ patriotism or national pride is the feeling of love, devotion and sense of attachment to a homeland.
      a homeland may be referred to as a fatherland, a motherland, or a mother country, depending on the culture and language of the nationality in question.
      @ motherland refers to a mother country, which is the place of one’s birth, the place of one’s ancestors, the place of origin of an ethnic group or immigrant, or a metropole in contrast to its colonies.
      fatherland is the nation of one’s “fathers” or “forefathers” or one’s country of birth depending on how the individual uses it.
      @ patriotism (FROM LAT. PATER=FATHER) or national pride is the feeling of love, devotion and sense of attachment to a homeland and alliance with other citizens who share the same sentiment, which attachment can be a combination of many different feelings relating to one’s own homeland, including ethnic, cultural, political or historical aspects.
      @ interestingly, there is no such a term as matriotism (FROM LAT. MATER=MOTHER) possibly because patriotism is not only very exclusive (us, in contrast with any others) but also because the war is was historically a man (father) business, and war is also very selective (kill only the others).

      i say people like Bolton are patriots.
      but, today we notice a lot of matriots, funny laughing stock idealists, sort of diluted patriots with this weakness in their mind “why kill only the others, what if we can find a compromise?”.
      they can see the problem: “the others” are patriots too.

      ARE YOU A MATRIOT OR A PATRIOT?

      Of course, the Netanyahu-Kushner encryption and conspiracy over UN 2334 will be the HOT TOPIC of the unredacted report on the Flynn-Kislyak conversations in which Russia had to inform Netanyahu, Kushner, and Flynn that NYET, the Russians would not conclude with them to shaft Obama for Netanyahu

      Time to trot out the rest of the Trotskyites Neocons and their world wide Kahanist Revoltion (aka the Neocons) along with John Bolton
      The Neocon/Israel dominated ‘unipolar American moment’ of Dr Charles Krauthhammer, Kristol, and Perle now more resembles a ‘smoking unipolar crater’

    Hey Debka thanks for this post. All Mullah lovers of Iran and anti Americans has started barking. They fully understand how detrimental Mr Bolton’s presence is to their existence.

    Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”
    Why only Caleb?
    He was the only one with internet.
    ‘Coze access to Debka was pretty difficult at that time.

    Bolton’s a good man with great intellect. Trump is lucky to have him. It was Bolton that first called out the UN for being a pile of globalist chitt.

    I’d like to collude with Bibi and nuke Iran. Solomeo is merely an agent provocateur. (Just pay the taxes on your bribe acceptances.) Bolton likes to tell the Truth. (You shouldn’t do that if you want to succeed in politics.) Time to play the Trump card!
