  1. From a headline service: “WSJ, citing multiple officials, reported Trump administration’s preferred option when it comes to responding to Iran’s alleged role in recent attacks on Saudi oil facilities remains a coordinated international response through the UN. Paper discussed how Trump has dialed back the rhetoric after initially noting US is “locked and loaded”. Noted this fits with his aversion to military intervention, but also reflects limits on his retaliatory options. Also pointed out that while Secretary of State Pompeo said on Wednesday the attacks were an “act of war”, the remarks were part of a speech about the need to pull together a coalition at the UN.”

    Neither China nor Russia will agree to military action vs Iran.

  2. “Senior national security officials from across the government are scheduled to meet Thursday to refine a list of potential targets to strike in Iran…” That would be Trump, Pompeo, what’s name, what’s name, what’s name and Jared. Wasn’t it what’s anme who said: “History repeats itself, the first as tragedy, then as farce”?

    • Try that again: “Senior national security officials from across the government are scheduled to meet Thursday to refine a list of potential targets to strike in Iran…” That would be Trump, Pompeo, what’s his name, what’s his name, what’s his name and Jared. Wasn’t it what’s his name who said: “History repeats itself, the first [time] as tragedy, then as farce”?

  3. If we are hoping for a coherent Middle East policy, other than what has been blindly outsourced to Bibi and MBS, we won’t soon find one. Few in the US realize we have been arming a “coalition” in Yemen that has been fighting with and alongside Al-Qaeda and Islamic State affiliated groups, all “focused” against the Houthis and the apparent “enemy number 1” of Iran. The recent schism of this cozy group according to either Saudi and UAE alignment should come as no surprise. What’s his name was right, farce indeed. The American Empire still hasn’t enrolled in Orientalism 101. Awaiting more tragicomedy.

  4. I don’t understand what the motivation is here for the US and Pompeo. Saudi Arabia ok I get it. After the Iraqi shit show, the division of its oil assets, the abundance of oil supply following shale boom… wtf is the motivation?

  5. Are there any Iranian assets left in the US (like bank accounts and other investments)? If so, could these be frozen as “collateral” for rebuilding SA’s oil infrastructure destroyed in the attack?

  6. It must be interesting trying to build a coalition when you’ve antagonized all your allies with threatening their country’s economy.
