Any US military attack on Islamic Iran following strikes by Yemen’s revolutionary government at ARAMCO facility in occupied Arabian Peninsula will first and foremost hurt Washington and its regional puppets.
Announcement by the ignoramus in the White House that the US is "locked and loaded" is another pathetic statement with no real policy behind it.
If Yemen, one of the poorest countries in the world and under siege, could single-handedly cause the oil price to rise by 20% and disrupt close to 5% of world oil supply, imagine what Iran could do?
The current US regime has no thought-out policy on most issues.
The same day that the white-supremacist US regime made threats against Islamic Iran, Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s counsellor did not rule out his attempting to meet Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani at the UN.
It is highly unlikely that the Iranian president would meet Trump even if he were to go down on his knees and beg but the inconsistencies of Trump regime are once again evident.
Let us briefly consider some potential scenarios about what could happen if the US were to attack Islamic Iran.
Tehran will respond forcefully to US aggression. It proved this last June by shooting down the intruding US drone over its territory.
Also, Iran will likely act against US puppet regimes in the Persian Gulf, as their territory and assistance will be used in attacking Iran.
Since Tehran has demonstrated its ability and courage to shoot down the US drone, can anyone doubt its determination to rain down rockets on Dubai and on ARAMCO facilities?
Let that sink in for a moment. Dubai is the main financial and social hub of Western dominance over the Middle East.
Millions of Western expats fueling the UAE economy will panic and immediately leave scaling down their investments in the entire region.
This will shake the illegitimate regimes in the UAE and the Najdi Bedouins occupying Makkah and Madinah.
Islamic Iran fully understands that a larger military confrontation is not in the interests of the US and its weak Arabian allies.
Thus, Iran’s response will be disproportionate if its territory is attacked.
The Saudi regime and the UAE can’t fight even in Yemen. No one except the princes who bought their “university degrees” believes that the Gulf regimes can stand up to Iran.
The successful Yemeni retaliation against years of Saudi aggression has put the Najdi Bedouins and their Western backers in an almost untenable situation.
The only option the US may have is to attack some targets in Yemen and claim that these were “Iranian targets”. Any other kind of military aggression against Iran will trigger a harsh response.
Yemeni attacks against ARAMCO facilities have caused huge damage to the Saudi regime both economically and politically.
According to the latest Bloomberg report, quoting numerous financial experts, the Saudi dream of floating the ARAMCO IPO soon and at a high value is severely damaged.
Politically, the Saudis have been humiliated and exposed as incompetent NATO vassals unable to successfully fight one of the poorest countries in the world.
While it is uncertain what exactly the Western response might be, it must be kept in mind that the only certainty about the Trump regime is its uncertainty.
However, it must be noted that in the US, the president alone is not in-charge.
The deep state in Washington realizes that if he overreacts in the current tense situation, he will lead the US down a humiliating path. It will merely accelerate its decline.
Thus, the US deep state will act as a counter balance to Trump’s ill-conceived actions and escalation could be avoided.
