Saudi Arabia drone attacks - Johnson refuses to rule out military action
Boris Johnson says 'the UK is attributing responsibility with a very high degree of probability to Iran for the Aramco attacks'.
"The UK is attributing responsibility with a very high degree of probability to Iran for the Aramco attacks. We think it is very likely that Iran was indeed responsible. Using both UAVs, both drones and cruise missiles. The difficulty is how do we organise a global response - what is the way forward?
That's just great. Another warmongering-planet-endangering-psychopathic prime minister.

Asked whether he would rule out military action and stick with the Iran nuclear deal, Mr Johnson replied:"Well - on what kind of action we could take, you'll have seen the Americans are proposing to do more to help to defend Saudi Arabia.
"On Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and other very sad dual national consular cases held in Tehran, as you can imagine in the course of my talks with President Rouhani which I will also be having - in my talks with President Rouhani I will not only be discussing Iran's actions in the region but the need to release not just Nazanin but others, and I will argue they are being illegally held."Read more: Sky News
I think Iran is guilty for this. Not nice people at all. So? Unelected PM takes UK into war, to get US President re-elected? I wonder if these drone attacks were paid for by the British taxpayer....... Where is Boris Johnson when Saudi led coalition is pounding Yemen with American made weapons ? If Houthi responded with Iranian made weapons to attack Saudi's is there any problem with that? What is good for the goose is good for the ganders.
Our government should let Saudi Arabia handle their own problems ... oh but wait our government are the Saudis lap dogs. Saudi terrorist state who bomb school buses and the US war machine so desperate for a war with Iran The UK government ... Saudi Arabia's lap dog. They say jump our govt says how far. We give them weapons they give us oil. Our govt is disgusting money money money oil oil oil war war war
Brilliant strategy- parliament (once recalled due to war) will be so busy debating if the PM authorisation of a nuclear attack on Iran was lawful that brexit happens by default Because helping the Americans go to war worked so well last time? It's becoming surreal how the Saudis and Israel can have the U.S. and Britain do whatever they want. One has the oil and the other has illegal nuclear weapons. One murders Palestinians and the other Yemenis, and both murder journalists. All with impunity.

Ironic, coming from the guy who has consistently threatened war against Iran, coupled with the fact that a recent US drone strike intended for Isis hideout killed 30 pine nut workers in Afghanistan, two days ago. 🤦🏿♂️ A true leader. Showing restraint? He doesn’t know the meaning of the word
