Though it is highly probable, lets wait until the evidence is available for review. Rump’s credibility isn’t quite there.
Saudi Arabia has been slaughtering Yemenis (civilian and military) for years — with U.S. weaponry. The two counties are at war. What an outrage that Yemen would drop (drone) bombs on Saudi refineries!
Iran? Maybe, as they are allies of Yemin. Difficult to believe anyone in this, and certainly not the murder & dismember a journalist Saudis.
I frankly would not put it beyond the Saudis to blow up their own refineries in an effort to goad the US into fighting the open war with Iran they want but do not want to fight themselves.
Of course Iran attacked Saudi Arabia. Trump and Pompeo told us so. They don’t need to show us any evidence. They’ve never lied to us. Right?
Interestingly enough, though Trump is slipping ever more deeply into dementia, and is losing his short term memory as a result (he denies ever saying he’d meet with Iran without “preconditions” though MSNBC pundits keep running video of him saying exactly that – and MSNBC also keeps running videos of his past “surprised” pronouncements of the appearance of Category “5” hurricanes as being new each and every time in the past 4 or 5 occasions one’s hit America since he’s become “President”)!
Trump is now caught between a rock and a “hard place” – he says he doesn’t want war with Iran – the world’s economy is teetering on the brink of calamity because Iran is supporting the Houthis in Yemen against the genocidal attacks by Saudi Arabia which WE are supporting!
So Trump is sitting in the Oval Office, waiting to be told by “the Kingdom” exactly HOW they want Trump to retaliate against the latest attack by Yemen – and Trump’s pathetic explanation is that the Saudis will pay us for any cost associated with us being the Saudis’ paid mercenaries. Great just freaking great!
Even if it does turn out to be Iranians, should we really be all that surprised? The US unilaterally pulled out of the nuclear agreement, destroying what little trust and mutual interests we had with the Iranian state. And what makes this administration think we’d want to go to war just to protect SAUDI oil fields? We’re not their private security force. They want to start a war with Iran, let them fight it, and keep us well out of it.

I’m sure all the Maga’s will volunteer to fight the Saudi’s war for them.
That’s what a Yemeni drone pilot looks like?
Hmmm, who actually has lots of drones, and might want to never forget 9/11 was the work of Saudis, with Saudi financing?
The latest is, he’s offering to give them a $15B line of credit if they’ll return to the treaty that we broke!
I’m confused. Iran did it? Is it the 3rd week of the month that we are supposed to believe our intel agencies?
don’t forget we invaded Iraq with “proof” of weapons of mass destruction.
Of course the Saudis want the US to fight their war with Iran for them. Even though they are driven by the Shiite-Sunni split that has been going on for centuries they are still bound by for the most part by the Koran stating Muslims are forbidden to make war against fellow members of the faith. Needless to say if the Saudi Shiites want to have a full scale war with the Iranian Sunni they have to get infidels to do it for them so they can still claim adherence to their religious doctrine. In the current case they want the United States to be that infidel power, so if thing go badly they can redirect any anger directed against the infidels attacking “all” Muslims and turn on us faster than you can say “Caliph of Baghdad” .
