Aramco

Russian President Vladimir Putin said after talks with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani that there was no evidence to blame Iran for the recent attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities.

Speaking further, the Russian president said that due to US sanctions, Iran wasn’t able to realise its opportunities, adding that the sanctions were harmful to the global economy and energy industry.

“Iran has an enormous potential, is a very large player on the global energy market, but, unfortunately, due to the sanctions policy of the US administration, Iran cannot fully realize its opportunities and, in my opinion, it is very harmful to the world economy in general, for the global energy industry, because it does not provide an opportunity to ensure stable operation of the sector,” Putin said.

On 14 September, Saudi Aramco had to close two of its facilities after they were hit by drones and then caught fire. The incident led to a cut in oil production totalling 5.7 million barrels per day — about half of Saudi Arabia’s daily oil output.

Following the attack, a number of countries, including Saudi Arabia itself, the US, the UK and Germany blamed the attack on Iran.

Later on, the Saudi Defence Ministry held a press conference last week to present what it described as evidence of Iran’s involvement in the attacks.

Iran has denied all accusation, pointing out that the Yemeni Houthi movement has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Not enough, the opium smoking diktator in Tehran still hasn’t been at the receiving end of some bomb or missile, thus he’d deserve to be given as food to the pigs.

It takes time to retrace the historic of GPS systems, don’t worry, it”s coming.

And you don’t need to be a genius to guess where the waypoints will lead :
1. Drones : either international waters, just at the limit of Bahrain+KSA territorial waters or Qatar
2. Missiles : either Iran or Iraq.
=> It’s a really messy job to rewind all GPS data as there are shïtloads of databases to recoup, but once done, the culprits are gonna pay and dearly…
