    Apparently half of their oil got shut down. I have not heard of word on if anyone died or got injured, has anyone.

    Yemen claimed the attack.
    Or is tramp angry since Saudi Arabia pays cash for their military supplies,

    I wonder do they pay cash for the hotel rooms rents on the Tramps post office, or tramps apts in NY or the Scotland golf course they rented.REVEALED: The Saudis have also been pumping cash into Trump’s infamous Scotland golf resort

    and tramp tower in NY?
    Is he pocketing all that cash and not paying taxes on it??

    What does it have to do with the US, nothing. Saudi Arabia killed many kids in Yemen by the millions, by starving them to death and blowing them up. Their darn oil field doesn't even make up for the kids lives lost in Yemen.

    According to the Saudis their 'normal' oil capacity will be back to typical levels ASAP.

    I know ex US military folk in Saudi that train extremely high level trainees, in all aspects of US weaponry, self defense, and warfare.

    These folks make BIG BUCK$ for training the Saudis, the same folks that did 9/11, how to maim & to kill innocent civilians; even with so called illegal barrel bombs.

    It's all about m-o-n-e-y & as we all know, America is the land of opportunity.

    It's isn't "half of their oil", there are countries who are dependent on the oil they produce. Even though they have reserves, do you have any idea what would happen if even 5 per cent of the global oil supply is cut off?

    Other countries are not as independent as we are. Thank you President Trump.

    I remember when the first Bush was president. Military members who were female were required to wear black robes, without any duly-earned rank showing. We tolerated this insult to our troops.This is what brought home to me that the U.S. was a slave to the Saudis.

    SA doesn't pay their bills to the US. They owe us.

    It's a double edged ploy. We can bitch slap Iran while getting oil prices up. Win, win. Think about it before you ask questions you can figure out on your own.

    Obviously.

    Why are you defending Yemen?

    Because they're the primary country accepting USDs and keeping it in play as the primary currency in the oil trade.

    I'm here to help.

    Who doesn't like good old American greenbacks? That's the currency that greases to gears of the world.
