Hi All

So I read this morning the attack was so sophisticated it was doubtful any nation could have defended against it.


Quote from source...."I don't think there is any country that could have defended any better than Saudi Arabia did, and that includes the United States," Peter Roberts, director of military sciences at the Royal United Services Institute, told The New York Times."

Now with this info are we still suppose to believe it was the work of the Houthis?

I'm still amazed at the lack of concern over this event. The attack if targeted at the right parts of the oil facility could have killed production for MONTHS and all we've had is one day of oil price spikes and now it appears all is normal.


Thank You, Dane
