Nimmo: Cui Bono, Israel, and the Attack on Saudi Oil

As usual, we’re expected to believe officialdom on responsibility for
the attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil production. Mike Pompeo, Trump’s
former CIA boss and tank commander, reflexively blamed Iran minus any
Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi
Arabia while Rouhani and Zarif pretend to engage in diplomacy. Amid all
the calls for de-escalation, Iran has now launched an unprecedented
attack on the world’s energy supply. There is no evidence the attacks
came from Yemen.

Trump is a reluctant to place blame for the attack on Iran. He
understands a war with Iran will be catastrophic, not only for the
entire Middle East, but the world economy as a whole. It will wreck
Trump’s goal of making himself a peacemaker.
Remember when Iran shot down a drone, saying
knowingly that it was in their “airspace” when, in fact, it was nowhere
close. They stuck strongly to that story knowing that it was a very big
lie. Now they say that they had nothing to do with the attack on Saudi
Arabia. We’ll see?

Trump is waiting on word from Prince “Bone Saw” Salman before he
commits the US military to bombing Iran, likely targeting its oil
production infrastructure in tit-for-tat fashion. Iran, of course, will
not take this laying down. It will immediately retaliate by hitting oil
fields and petrochemical facilities situated in the Persian Gulf
Emirates. Iran will also target US military bases, installations, and
warships within reach of its missiles.

On Tuesday, “senior officials” in the US said without a doubt the
attack came from southern Iran which borders the northern end of the
reports Iran has “attacked Saudi oil facilities before, but US
officials said on Sunday that they believed the drones and missiles did
not originate from the south or south-west, and instead were launched
from the north or north-west.”
If we consult a map, we discover Israel is situated to the northwest
of Saudi Arabia. Iran is in the east and Iraq to the north. Because
cruise missiles and drones have the capability of changing direction, we
do not have a good idea where the missiles came from and the party
responsible for launching them.
For the US, this is not a problem. It is now habituated to telling
lies, releasing misinformation, and disseminating propaganda associated
with false flag attacks. Much of what it reports is believed without
question by millions of Americans. The state describes this mass
credulity and inability to question authority as “patriotism.”
Iran has said it will shut down oil production across the Gulf if US
sanctions on its export of oil remain in place. The sanctions imposed on
Iran’s oil and economy are an act of war, so it makes sense Iran would
be responsible for the attack—that is, if they’re crazy and want their
country reduced to rubble and possibly an irradiated no-go zone. It is
irrational to believe the leadership of Iran desires such a fate.
Chanting “Death to Israel and America” is rhetorical. Iran does not
have the ability to destroy either, although in the event of a war,
Israel will certainly suffer an onslaught of missiles from both Iran and
Hezbollah in Lebanon. It will need the US to fight on at least two
It is entirely obvious, even to the casual observer, that Saudi
Arabia, Israel, and the war-obsessed neocon faction within the US
government are working overtime to destroy Iran.
I don’t believe the fact this attack occurred within days of Trump
firing the neocon John Bolton is a coincidence. Bolton failed to steer
Trump into bombing Iran and this necessitated a neocon Plan B—yet
another, far more serious false flag attack to finally push the US into
bombing Iran. Israel and Saudi Arabia would love to do this, but they
are incapable and need the US war machine’s help.
Left unmentioned in the slanted and bias deluge of corporate media
reports on the attack—all information received from a government known
for pathological lying—is the duplicity and violence of both Israel and
Israel has bombed hundreds of targets with impunity in Syria,
Lebanon, and Iraq. It has provided medical assistance to jihadi
terrorists in Syria.
Saudi Arabia has killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians in
Yemen and has spread its poisonous Wahhabi creed of murderous jihadism
around the world. It is fair to say the governments of both Israel and
Saudi Arabia hate the United States. Israel has carte blanc to spy on
America, blackmail US presidents, “lobby” Congress, and steal
technological secrets. Recall the “art students” and “dancing Israelis.”
Saudi Arabia is at the center of the 9/11 attacks. Florida Senator Bob Graham,
who chaired the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence,
said in sworn statements that “there was evidence of support from the
Saudi government for the terrorists.”
The 28-pages were a “thing” for a short period of time, but have
since largely been ignored and buried under a daily avalanche of far
less important corporate news.
Israel and Saudi Arabia are now best of buddies. They share the same
objectives vis-à-vis Iran. Is it impossible to believe Saudi Arabia
would target or allow Israel or the US to target its prized oil fields
I believe the answer is yes. Refineries can be rebuilt and oil fields
resuscitated. It is a small price to pay to get rid of the mullahs and
take down Iran’s critical infrastructure, in effect turning it into
But this will not happen. Iran has the ability to defend itself. It’s
not Iraq or Libya. Iran’s leaders have promised a long and painful
asymmetrical war after their cities are bombed and civilian
This is the actual objective—the “bomb them back to the Stone Age”
paradigm—not an illusory nuclear weapons program. It’s how the neocons
and Israelis operate—not unlike the Hittites and Assyrians strewing salt
in a conquered enemy’s fields. It is the same barbaric mentality—not
only murder and drive off your enemy, but make it impossible for him to
Prior to his dismissal, John Bolton cited the “Libyan Model” in relation to North Korea. Adam Garfinkle spelled out this process in 2018:
When John Bolton invoked “the Libya Model” a couple of days ago in
reference to North Korea, he clearly meant the model, from 2003-04, in
which the U.S. government, in the form of the George W. Bush
Administration, persuaded the Libyan government to hand over its WMD
program stuff in return for a pledge that the United States would not
seek to put Muammar Qaddafi’s head on the wall at the Pentagon or in
Neocons, however, are notoriously duplicitous, and after Obama was
elected the pledge to not kill Gaddafi and destroy Libya were betrayed.
The lesson: never trust the US or its partners, most notably Britain,
when they make promises. Chances are, they’re lying and assassins await
in the shadows to do their dirty work.
This is what happened to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action—the
agreement was nullified by Trump, once again demonstrating the word of
the US cannot be trusted.
The destruction of Iraq, Syria, and Libya have nothing to WMDs,
chemical weapons, and nuclear weapons programs. In a superficial way,
the objective resembles that the Turco-Mongol invasions of the 13th century—kill everybody and let god sort them out.
Chinggis Khan preferred surrender and the creation of vassals
offering tribute in exchange for Mongol protection, but this is not the
objective of the Israelis and the neocons.
They are not interested in obedience and tribute. They want to
decimate their enemies and, after bombing them into submission,
balkanize their nations and subject them to never-ending strife, ethnic
conflict, and political sectarianism.
Iran, of course, will be identified as the culprit in the targeting
of Saudi Arabia’s oil production. It’s unclear what exactly will happen
and when, but it can be taken without a doubt this is part of a plan to
get momentum moving on war and murder.
It is unfortunate far too many Americans are clueless about what is
about to happen and what it will mean—the shut down of oil trade, oil
being the lubricant of civilization.
The war to destroy Iran will be worse than the wars in Iraq,
Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and much of Africa. It will sap what’s left
our national treasure—borrowed from banksters—and spill a whole lot of
blood for the sake of Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Trump and Congress are essentially Pavlovian chumps.
