Saudi crown prince blames Iran for tanker attacks, threatens action

 Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) has accused Iran of attacking two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, and warned that while the kingdom does not seek war, “we won’t hesitate” to tackle any threats to the kingdom. The prince also blamed “Iran and its proxies” for the May 12 attacks on four tankers anchored opposite the UAE port of Fujairah. In an interview with London daily Asharq al-Awsat, published on Sunday, MbS said: “The Iranian regime did not respect the presence of the Japanese prime minister as a guest in Tehran and responded to his [diplomatic] efforts by attacking two tankers, one of which was Japanese.”

Saudi Arabia’s energy minister, Khalid al-Falih, called for a “swift and decisive” response to threats against energy supplies after Thursday’s “terrorist acts.”

    I doubt Saudi Arabia will do anything. They always want the US to take care of their issues and take the risk. Well, Bush and Obama no longer sit in power to serve them. There’s a true American in the White House that takes care of the US.

      the world is laughing at your idiotic lies

      Tehillah 44:14 (15) Thou makest us a mashal (byword) among the Goyim, a shaking of the rosh among the peoples.

      Yirm 24:9 And I will deliver them for abhorrence, for an offense to kol mamlechot ha’aretz to be a reproach and a byword, a taunt and a kelalah (curse) in all places where I shall drive them.
