The Guardian: Trump says US ‘locked and loaded’ after Saudi Arabia attack, as oil prices soar

US president says he has ‘reason to believe we know the culprit’ of the drone attacks on Aramco plant.

Donald Trump has said the US was “locked and loaded” and to ready respond to drone attacks on a petroleum processing facility in Saudi Arabia, saying the US knew who was behind them.

The US president tweeted on Sunday night that he had “reason to believe that we know the culprit” behind the series of attacks on the Abqaiq facility, which is the world’s largest petroleum processing plant. The attacks disrupted more than half of the kingdom’s oil output and will affect global supplies.

Trump tweeted: “[We] are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom [of Saudi Arabia] as to who they believe was the cause of this attack and under what terms we would proceed!”


WNU Editor: The ball is in Saudi Arabia’s court on what to do next.
