Asked if Iran is behind the Saudi oil attacks, President Trump just now: "Well it's looking that way. We're having some very strong studies done... As soon as we find out definitively, we'll let you know, but it's looking that way."

Trump on the Saudi oil attack: "That was a very large attack, and it could met with an attack many many times larger" by the US. Would not say whether attack was launched from inside Iran.

Asked if he'd be willing to go to #NorthKorea, President Trump says, "Probably not... I don't think we're ready for that." A South Korean news agency reported this morning that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited Trump to Pyongyang.

Early on Saturday, drones attacked the world’s largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia and a major oilfield operated by Saudi Aramco, sparking a huge fire at a processor vital to global energy supplies.

Now, the ad-lib negotiations between the Americans and the Houthis are reflection of the Emirati success to convince the Saudis to find a face-saving way out of Yemen.

It seems strange that the Saudis have not responded in any way. What would it take for them and Iran to go to war?

The drones were just cover for the cruise missiles and i am sure some were for final targeting. I have seen the impact damage to the tanks, that had missile impact written all over it.

Saudi and the US better be making war plans because Iran just declared it. It don't take a week to come to the conclusion that Iran was responsible lol.
