This virus attach will hurt the US somewhat but we have enough reserve to hold it for the short term. It will not justify a war with Iran if they are the ones putting out this virus. We will not strike Iran. If, however, Israel starts then I see that the US will be on Israels side and only then. All this attach will do as everyone here says is that the price of oil will just go up. Some countries more than others. I wonder what Venezuela will do.

It seems that if this attack came from Iran...
The retaliation would come from the west.
Since we are such great "buddies" with the Saudis...
(really we are just the people who prop their entire world up)
Then this may spark interest in getting higher gas prices.
Higher gas prices will piss off the public and they'll ask questions...
The answers will be that the Iranians started the fight, so we cry in the streets.
Thus, blaming the Iranians on the attack...
Justifying a reason to start a war with them.
Man this is too obvious.
(or delibrate so the war drums beat on)
In a statement posted on PasteBin, the hitherto unknown Arab Youth Group suggested the attack against Aramco's "administrable structures and substructures" had been carried out to protest what it claimed was the support shown to Israel and the United States by Saudi leaders.
"These betrayals are done with oil wealth of the Arab nation," the group claimed, warning of more "severe action" against companies such as Aramco.
A group called the “Arab Youth Group” has taken responsibility for an attack, releasing a statement on Pastebin.com saying, “Arab nations beware. The Arab Youth Group, in support of Arab dignity and a warning to Al-Saud traitors, has performed the ‘Sahabah al-Nabi’ operation.”
It cited Saudi support of Israel and the United States as the reason for the group’s anger, and continued, “These betrayals are done with the oil wealth of the Arab nation.”
