This Week in the World Affairs Brief


This week, Iran made a vigorous protest over being blamed for the alleged sabotage attacks on four oil cargo vessels anchored near the port of Fujairah, on the Eastern seaboard of the United Arab Emirates, approximately 70 nautical miles from the Straits of Hormuz. Two of the tankers were from Saudi Arabia and were listed as loading oil destined for America to make sure the US could link the attack to “US interests.” The trouble is, reports of the attacks lacked any photographic evidence of the damage or the type of explosives used in the sabotage that could be independently verified, nor was there any evidence linking the alleged attack to Iran other than vague US and Saudi Arabia reports fingering Iran, the long-term enemy of the US Deep State in the Persian Gulf. Next came an alleged drone attack by Yemen against a Saudi Oil pipeline pumping station, which was also blamed on Iran, being the main supplier of military arms to Yemen. But it is the Saudis that are the aggressors in Yemen. They began attacking Yemen after Yemenese rebels overthrew the former US-backed regime that was aiding US-Saudi backed terrorism in Syria. One would expect Yemen to justifiably strike back at Saudi Arabia for its constant attacks for the past two years, so why blame Iran instead of Yemen itself? –To justify this war with Iran.To receive a one-time free sample copy of the brief, email us at editor at
