    We don’t have any allies anymore. This administration has run them off

  3. It is the Saudi Arabia and the United States that did this this is a scam wake up people

    • @aditya nawani No. I”m saying your government is manipulative and deceitful. Your government is the most corrupt on planet Earth. pfft.

    • MrMnmn911
      Because it was my government that attacked Iraq under false flag?😂😂😂😂😂

    • Who IS responsible?. I’m betting on Israel. It benefits most from a USA-Iran war.

    • MrMnmn911 interesting to hear from a citizen of a country that starts war
      after war after war telling lies producing false evidence etc
      Plus having a pinocchio president telling lies just about everything!
      Man,the world laughs about America,and it has all reason to do that….
      ridiculous people

  4. 5 percent of the world’s oil supply and 50 percent of the Saudi’s output? Is that more than Jed Clampet had?

  5. Boeing needs the cash flow,drump needs a reason to hold on to the office.Here comes a false flag war.

  6. If this White House never believes its intelligience agencies any other time, why believe them now?

      Because now it fits their needs. When it doesn’t or is against their needs it’s bs, fake news and what not… If it’s on their agenda, everything that shapes their view is immediately declared as fact.

      @Daniel Lindy sorry, read your comment later but my view was exactly the same.

    • @Ash Roskell all his golf buddys are gettinh ready dusty meyers

  7. Omg this is another excuse start a non sense war that us don’t need to be part of it.

    • El Negro 44 what I love is that false flaggers always seem to really love their numbers. 19 targets? 19 Saudi hijackers on 9/11, same excuses, perpetrated by the hidden hand. Bush’s poll numbers were starting to look reallllly bad too. Ah would ya look at that? Another thing they have in common. I guess the silver lining is at least the government didn’t kill 3,000 of our own again to get the ball rolling…

    • Meta View bush was president for only 8 months when 911 happened….. so what fucking poll numbers are you talking about?

    • Meta View I am from Saudi Arabia let me tell u this The 19 hijackers are young guys who were brainwashed by Osama bin laden and why he choose those younger guys from saudi to attack USA because he wants to cause a fucking war between Saudi Arabia and USA. Osama bin laden was listed terrorist first in Saudi Arabia and he attacked my country so many times before and after 9/11 one attack was near my house Alkhobar city i was 10 years old my dad was in work and he couldn’t comeback to the house because of those fucking terrorist the school closed for days the police and national guard armored vehicles were everywhere it was terrifying moments i will not forget

  8. right, because I am sure that Pompeo’s itching to go to war with Iran has nothing to do with this, furthermore it’s unfathomable to believe that the largest oil field in the world has ZERO radar protection! Go sell that BS to someone else. This is ALL about squeezing the working families across the world to stress them out just in time for more dictator-like personalities to gain power, like Trump.

    • I agree that it is unbelievablely unfathomable that the world’s largest oil field has zero radar protection?

    • 50 perc oil reduction…. 1000 percent profit. More frakking… so clever, and so transparent. SA is very happy… less work more pay and Murica pay s for the war, terumpf the benefits. Americans pay with the life’s of their sons. So mutsch heroes in the making and another generation with ptsd. America… Arlington is full!!!!!!

    • First all, Mo are current radar are not like scanners you see on Star Trek. Believe or not it very hard to some time detect what is in your air space. During the 1970’s United State thought the Russia launch a surprise attack over the North Pole, turns out it just a really big flock of geese. LOL 😁

  9. American Pompous Pompeo claims IRAN , IRAN , & IRAN did this.Houthis claim they did it. Mr. Pompous has no evidence that Houthis did it but neither does he have evidence that Iran was behind this attack on the ARAMCO Oil Refinery. What is this American Smoking.

  10. Pompeo should be convicted he is causing the world panic with falsified information he should be arrested

    • richard marriott : Exactly. If supplying the weapons is the reason to go to war, then the entire Third World has a legitimate reason to go to war with America, the UK, France and Germany! Yemen IS AT WAR with the Saudis, FFS? What should we expect?

    • elizabeth tudor : That’s how it always starts, you idiot. Trump Trolls are THICK! Can’t you SEE Trump is DESPERATE for a war? He’s DYING at the Fox Polls. 🤣

    • He was convicted of frisking pentagon offficails and was pardoned by trump

    • @Peske tarier To be honest Iran would be finished. Iranians abroad and at home would be wiped off the face of the earth as if they never even existed. Thousands of years of history would be erased if Iran doesnt bow down.

    Pompeo: let’s blow up oil fields, blame it on Iran and raise gas prices

  12. And here we go. This is how Republicans win elections, by starting Wars.

  13. Pompeo’s the lair; the lie is too big to make a case for war with Iran…. again.

    • Bahs Azad : And, he’s lying for Trump who wants his war

    • We haven’t went to war with Iran before. We blew up some boats when they wouldn’t stop attacking oil tankers and they knocked it off (years ago) but I think you have this confused with something else. You and 94 other people. Did you mean Iraq?

    • K Ham He said trying to “Make the Case for war”.
      Which Republicans have been trying to do for at least 2 decades.
      You’re the one who’s confused🙄

    • It’s worse than that. If he wanted to actually fight someone, or go to war to “protect American ideals” , or for whatever glorious excuse could be manufactured as an excuse for war, then at least, even if for all of the wrong reasons, it would be a somewhat honorable motivation. But no, he just wants to look strong while he redefines what it means to be weak. While we have in the past committed our military to bolster Saudi Arabia’s military, of course trained by us, there have been far too many transgressions made by them to simply declare our unwavering allegiance. Those things can’t be ignored(Koshogghi’s murder, human rights violations, etc) and the motivation for the attack may just be the most important facet of this extremely complicated situation. And of note: if Yemeni Houdis are actually responsible, then Saudi Arabia could easily retaliate, rightly or wrongly, and obliterate Yemeni targets with ease. In other words, it would be the dumbest strategic move ever if Houdi rebels did this deed. But I think not. I also doubt that they even have the resources. This reeks of Iran, and leaving it open for blame long enough to keep speculation high and confusion rampant would be a classic maneuver for them.

    So basically we want to attack Iran and need an excuse?

  15. At least the Houthi rebel’s dont bomb schools, school buses, funerals, weddings and other civilians like the Saudis did to yemen and no one said a thing

  16. So Pompeo says Iran launched the attack. Does he know that first-hand? If not then he must be relying on information from the intelligence community. But the intelligence community has no credibility, correct?

  17. The houthy rebels have already taken responsibility for it and yet all American news are pushing the narrative that it was Iran… ABC news didn’t say a word about the rebels from Yemen.. and went straight to Iran and this incident destroying any chances of peace talks

    • David Frison : Trump must have talked Putin into letting him attack Iran? Putin stopped him from bombing them, at the last minute, last time. But, he must have been moving his mercs and infrastructure out of the way in all this time? Trump will get his war. He’s DESPERATE

    • Yemenis are killed everyday cause of Saudi Arabia never ending missile strikes thanks to the oil money so Yemenis choose to strike the head of the snake instead of killing innocent lives in Saudi Arabia.

      Why the hell USA doubt its Yemen is it because they are week then why the hell France USA and UK are all part of the war with Saudi against Yemen

    • ABC is awful. WARMONGERS.

    • maria booboo67 : So, you won’t be supporting Trump or our troops then? Got it

    • Ash Roswell, we’ll be supporting Trump by a gallows noose until he’s dead. “Our troops” do not support Traitor Trump. All our Generals call him a useless moron. F*ck Dementia Donny. He’s going down.

    Saudi’s just fired their oil minister because he couldn’t get the price of oil to go up. This seems to be a way to get the oil prices to go up.

  19. Don’t believe anything America says. Especially coming from this administraion!

  20. Who would believe Pom-pom? He lies almost as much as Drumpf……. almost.
