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!

They always say that. Means nothing. They have the ability to shut down the Strait for a short period, and they can attack ships with their swam boats. They have no defense against an air attack which is what the US will use.

Do you see Russia getting involved? So far, I don't see too much coming out of TASS to indicate that.

I haven't heard or seen anything about Russia getting involved. Iran considers Russia an ally. We'll see what Russia thinks about that in the coming days.

What defcon level would we be at right now in terms of the risk of conventional war?

Conventional wars are a completely different kettle of fish. The threshold is much lower, since most people don't consider them as destructive, so are more willing to engage in it.

Low but rising is my guess. Right now, Iran thinks the West will do nothing. After all, they really didn't do anything when Iran captured ships or blew them up. And so far nothing has happened after the attack on SA. (Still pending, though)

Iran, however, is being very foolish I think. Iran's economy is in the toilet. What will a war do to it?

Eventually, the West has to respond. Or risk looking weaker than they are.

Of course, weakness is always a possibility.

Ianian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Abbas Mousavi stressed that there would be no meeting between Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani and his American counterpart, Donald Trump on the sidelines of the upcoming UN General Assembly in New York.

“This is not in the agenda, and I do not think this will happen in New York,” said Abbas Mousavi on Monday in response to a question concerning the possibility of Hassan Rouhani and Donald Trump's meeting in New York.

“As president Rouhani has said we do not meet for cameras, the meeting should have an agenda with concrete results,” Mousavi said at his weekly press conference.
