DUBAI/RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi stocks fell sharply on Sunday, after attacks on two plants at the heart of the kingdom’s oil industry a day earlier knocked out more than half of Saudi crude output.

J'Accuse…?

15 of 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudi citizens
Ever since the tragic events of 9/11 2001, any attempt to point fingers towards Saudi Arabia were hushed up by Washington politicians and the American press.

Payback?

Of course it was the Iranians.. 🙄

Bolton must be sexinating his weiner with joyous abandon over this. He'll be on the blower in short order begging Trump to take him back so he can bomb the living suitcases out of Iran.

Houthi Drone Strikes Disrupt Almost Half Of Saudi Oil Exports

Yemen's Houthi rebels have claimed responsibility for drone strikes on two Saudi Aramco oil facilities early Saturday, according to a statement by a Houthi spokesman.

Reuters and The Wall Street Journal report that about half of the country's oil production has been disrupted, or 5 million barrels a day. Saudi Arabia produces approximately one-tenth of the world's crude oil, but for now, the impact on global oil prices is unknown, as markets are closed for the weekend.

Drone attacks are becoming a major security concern, not just in Saudi, but also for the US petrochem facilities too. I'm not sure what can be done, other than installing radio jammers, or perhaps giving the refinery crews 12-gauges and letting them get a little skeet shooting practice in, as anything higher caliber is just as likely to cause an explosion as the drone itself.

Of course, the US is accusing Iran... Iraq 2.0
Remember when we accused Iraq of participating in 9/11 and that Saddam had contacts with the hijackers?
Forget that the Houthis did this in retaliation against the Saudi, that's not news worthy.

some people are ramping up for war, they have to make it Iran no matter what


WASHINGTON, Sept 15 (Reuters) - The scope and precision of drone attacks on Saudi Arabian oil facilities show they were launched from a west-northwest direction rather than from Yemen to the south, where Houthi rebels claimed responsibility, senior U.S. administration officials said on Sunday.
U.S. officials pointed to satellite imagery showing 19 points of impact on the oil facilities. The attacks on Saturday risk disruptions to the world's oil supplies, and oil prices were expected to jump on Monday.
The officials said they had additional evidence they would reveal in the days to come that would show that Houthi claims of responsibility for the attacks were not credible.
