Trump Says We Are “LOCKED AND LOADED”, Suggests US Knows Culprit In Saudi Attack

President Trump on Sunday suggested U.S. investigators had “reason to believe” they knew who launched crippling attacks against a key Saudi oil facility, and vowed that America was “locked and loaded depending on verification.”

While he did not specify who he believed was responsible for Saturday’s drone attacks, U.S. investigators previously have pointed the finger at Iran.

“Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!” the president tweeted.

Earlier Sunday, Trump authorized the use of emergency oil reserves in Texas and other states after Saudi oil processing facilities were attacked, sparking fears of a spike in oil prices when markets reopen Monday.

The president wrote that he had authorized the release of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, “in a to-be-determined amount sufficient to keep the markets well-supplied.”

He continued, “I have also informed all appropriate agencies to expedite approvals of the oil pipelines currently in the permitting process in Texas and various other States.”

The Saudi oil sites attacked on Saturday, in a drone assault linked to Iran, interrupted about 5.7 million barrels of crude oil production, over 5 percent of the world’s daily supply.

Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels have claimed responsibility, but the U.S. has accused Iran of launching the assault. Tehran has denied any involvement, calling the accusations “maximum lies.”

  1. This is yet another possible war that Trump may get us into. We can add it to the list (Iran, China, Mexico…ect.) How can we keep supporting him through all his antagonism and warmongering?

  2. “Locked and loaded” — He plans to attack Iran with muskets?

    While Trump has a right to tweet, he should perhaps refrain from discussing military plans on Twitter (or any other public forum). There are good reasons the military prefers not to inform enemies of plans to attack prior to attacking them.

  3. festabachurmibangeladash : The Trump, and most of the presidents of the last 80 years, have been warmongers is a feature not a bug. During those 80 years it is the Americans, and no other other country, who has been constantly going to war against those who wish to do us great harm. But for the Americans, the Nazis, and then the Communists, and now the Islamic nationalists (both the Shiites and the “Al Queda/Islamic State” factions, would have triumphed and we Yidden would be the principal losers. While it is good that Ha-Shem protects us, it has been warmongers (including Trump) who have been the earthly agent. — And I stand by my previous comments that Trump should refrain from tweeting about military actions before they have taken place, to use the line from 80 years ago “a slip of the lip sinks the ship”. –P.S. You seem to be unaware that the US has not engaged in any military actions against Mexico for over a century, not against China for almost 70 years, and Trump shows no interest in doing so, indeed the last thing he would want is to conquer Mexico.

  4. ” There is reason to believe we know the culprit”!!! This is a basis to go to war???? What a moron! Where’s the evidence? And why should the U.S. fight for Saudi Arabia?

  5. erm the only morons here are you and festabachurmibangeladash. You have need spewing Russia Trump conspiracy here without any evidence and now you demand to see “evidence” in Iran’s involvement. No amount of any evidence will ever convince morons like you and festabachurmibangeladash. Folks like you believe in your own lies.
