    Exclamation Saudi Arabia vows to respond to oil attacks with 'necessary measures'

    Saudi Arabia says it will respond with "necessary measures" to attacks on two oil facilities as it reiterated the accusation that Iran was behind them.

    Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir said the weapons used were Iranian and vowed to release the full findings of the investigation.

    Iran denies involvement in the attacks.

    Earlier, a senior Iranian military official said Iran was ready to destroy any aggressor after the US announced it was sending troops to Saudi Arabia.

    Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen have said they were responsible for the drone and missile strikes on 14 September that affected the global oil supply.

    Tensions between the US and Iran have escalated since US President Donald Trump abandoned a deal limiting Iran's nuclear activities last year and reinstated sanctions.

    Speaking to reporters in Riyadh, Mr Jubeir said Saudi Arabia was in consultation with its allies and would take necessary and suitable measures after its investigation was complete, without giving details of possible actions.

    He repeated that the strikes targeting the Abqaiq oil facility and the Khurais oil field had come from the north and not from Yemen but did not give a specific location, and urged the international community to take a stand/.

    "The kingdom calls upon the international community to assume its responsibility in condemning those that stand behind this act, and to take a firm and clear position against this reckless behaviour that threatens the global economy," he said.

    Trump orders US Troops to Saudi Arabia

    "In response to the Kingdoms' request," Esper said, "the president has approved the deployment of U.S.forces, which will be defensive in nature and primarily focused on air and missile defense."

    They need help running the F-16's to maintain them etc. I wonder if that's it.

    Missile defense systems. Patriot missiles and radar, anti air.

    Saudi's will probably strike back and be defended by US air defenses. I think the probability of a Saudi strike increases as soon as these other systems come online.

    I dont think there will be a full-fledged war between the US and Iran. Killing the current petrodollar standard requires Saudi oil infrastructure to be badly, badly damaged (or at least claimed to be) thus breaking the dollar>Saudi oil link. Any war will likely be between Iran and Saudis. Seems to me that Iran is already playing ball with the global bankers since they have a cryptocurrency now in place, monetary ties to Europe via a system that bypasses dollar-based SWIFT system, Chinese oil deals and Russian trade deals in place, etc, so all of this is mostly just posturing for the masses. I certainly could be wrong but it appears to me that Iran is already on board with the bankers so it wouldn't make much sense to go blowing them up. Blowing up the Saudis oil trade for a period, on the other hand, would serve the de-dollarization plan quite well, though.
