It worked with Germany as we all share a European heritage and religion
Japan we got lucky.



It worked with Germany by taking hold of their education syatem of rewiring the new born brains. Turned viscous animals into totally obedient pets.

This is going to go nowhere. This happens in war zones. Iran is just guessing it is the Saudis, considering how many factions and nations are involved in the fighting it could be from anybody. And considering the lack of damage it likely will be a missile heading somewhere else being shot down. The Saudi's and Iran are going to be like Turkey and Russia. Lots of complaining and minor tit for tat stuff because neither side can take out the other. Iran can not invade Saudi Arabia because the Kingdom has way to many allies who will not allow it but, those same allies are not going support and a Saudi Invasion of Iran. Just like Turkey.

Of course most of this has to do with politics in both nations. For the Saudi's they want to be leader of the Arab world but, of course Egypt and Turkey do as well, so the Saudi's want to look pro active. A minor spat with Iran does that with almost zero chance of real conflict. For Iran it is simply a matter of the hardliners wanting as many problems with the Sunni's and West as possible to try and slow Iran's move Westward supported by most of the population.

Is it possible that it could be escalated by proxy, is there enough reason to push at least a few cross border missiles to target the oil facilities and cut production and increase the price?

I would imagine they would get up and running quick enough anyway if its only a minor spat.

Quite a few western firms are suffering, its not only oil, the LPG is linked to the oil price, that too is now cheaper than production meaning all the companies invested in it cannot repay their debt to build. If any of the "Conspiracy Theories" about global oil are true, would America let Conoco Phillips and Chevron lost money?

I'll bet a Buffalo Nickel that Saudi oil refineries end up getting air struck to smithereens. . .

Sit tight & watch.

Completely DISAGREE.

Saudi & United States are in a oil "Russian Roulette" duel. Saudi is single-handily bankrupting U.S. energy sector, amongst other countries as well.

The proxy fighting raging in Yemen & within Saudi borders is NOT Favorable to the Saud kingdom - - hell, at the rate things are going I'd give the Houthis less than a year to completely take over Saudi Arabia lol.

Plus Saudi aren't helping their cause when executing their "enemies" which in turn FIRE-UP the opposing populace

The Houthis have suffered massive defeats losing Southern Yemen completely and being driven back everywhere. Its main leaders Ali Abdullah Saleh asked the Saudis to be allowed to flee Yemen and was told no, not until a peace deal was reached.

And Egypt, Turkey, Israel, the GCC, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority are all backing the Saudi's who will also have the backing of the entire Arab League after today's meeting. This is the reality of things.
