Pompeo: Iran’s attack on Saudi oil was an act of war

During a visit to Jeddah for talks with Saudi rulers, US Secretary of State on Wednesday decried Iran’s attacks on the Saudi oil industry on Saturday an “act of war” as President Donald Trump ordered a substantial increase in sanctions. Iran warned the US that any attack on its territory would be met with a “rapid and crushing” response. A news conference that Pompeo had scheduled for Wednesday evening in Jeddah was cancelled without explanation.

      You are probably right about Iran and their nukes. Sad thing, they’ll only get one chance to use… and then Persia will be wiped from history forever…

      There are things far worse than nukes, and Trump is holding the trigger, Not Obama…

      If you are in Iran, and have the ability to leave Iran, time is running out fast. US Military is on the move, orders are being given… Equipment is all ready in theater, looking forward to Baghdad Bob and company…

    It is inconceivable to me that Iran could be so suicidal as o suggest it can sponsor murder and attacks on neighbors economies in its religious feud with the Saudis that has consequences for the whole world and the ayatollah still has his head crammed in the sand making threats.
    “We are going to attack you, don;t you dare respond!”
    Dare we?
    He who Dares wins.
