  1.  US sending reinforcements following attacks in Saudi Arabia Secretary of Defense Mark Esper the US will strengthen Saudi Arabia’s ability to defend itself against any threats. (AFP) Updated 21 September 2019 REUTERS September 21, 201901:50 WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Friday approved sending American troops to bolster Saudi Arabia’s air and missile defenses after the largest-ever attack on the kingdom’s oil facilities, which Washington has squarely blamed on Iran. The Pentagon said the deployment would involve a moderate number of troops — not numbering thousands — and would be primarily defensive in nature. It also detailed plans to expedite delivery of military equipment to both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. 537 people are talking about this Reuters has previously reported that the Pentagon was considering sending anti-missile batteries, drones and more fighter jets. The United States is also considering keeping an aircraft carrier in the region indefinitely. “In response to the kingdom’s request, the president has approved the deployment of US forces, which will be defensive in nature and primarily focused on air and missile defense,” US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said at a news briefing. “We will also work to accelerate the delivery of military equipment to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the UAE to enhance their ability to defend themselves.” 981 people are talking about this The Pentagon’s late Friday announcement appeared to close the door to any imminent decision to wage retaliatory strikes against Iran following the attack, which rattled global markets and exposed major gaps in Saudi Arabia’s air defenses. Trump said earlier on Friday that he believed his military restraint so far showed “strength,” as he instead imposed another round of economic sanctions on Tehran. “Because the easiest thing I could do, ‘Okay, go ahead. Knock out 15 different major things in Iran.’ ... But I’m not looking to do that if I can,” Trump told reporters at the White House. 347 people are talking about this Relations between the United States and Iran have deteriorated sharply since Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear accord last year and reimposed sanctions on its oil exports. For months, Iranian officials issued veiled threats, saying that if Tehran were blocked from exporting oil, other countries would not be able to do so either. However, Iran has denied any role in a series of attacks in recent months, including bombings of tankers in the Gulf and strikes claimed by the Houthis. US officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, have fingered southwest Iran as the staging ground for the attack, an assessment based at least in part on still-classified imagery showing Iran appearing to prepare an aerial strike. They have dismissed Houthi claims that the attacks originated in Yemen. US Marine General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said officials were still hammering out the best array of capabilities to defend Saudi Arabia, noting the difficulty combating a swarm of drones. “No single system is going to be able to defend against a threat like that, but a layered system of defensive capabilities would mitigate the risk of swarms of drones or other attacks that may come from Iran,” Dunford said. https://www.arabnews.com/node/1557466/saudi-arabia

The National Oil Marketing Company (SOMO), affiliated to the Ministry of Oil, responded to news of Saudi Arabia's request to provide 20 million barrels of Iraqi crude oil after targeting its oil facilities belonging to Aramco.

  12. US military to present several options to Trump on Iran US President Donald Trump will be presented with a list of potential airstrike targets inside Iran, and he also will be warned that military action against the Islamic Republic could escalate into war. (AFP) Updated 20 September 2019 AP September 20, 201905:01 1872 Donald Trump will also be warned that military action against the Islamic Republic could escalate into war The US response could involve military, political and economic actions WASHINGTON: The Pentagon will present a broad range of military options to President Donald Trump on Friday as he considers how to respond to what administration officials say was an unprecedented Iranian attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil industry. In a White House meeting, the president will be presented with a list of potential airstrike targets inside Iran, among other possible responses, and he also will be warned that military action against the Islamic Republic could escalate into war, according to US officials familiar with the discussions who spoke on condition of anonymity. The national security meeting will likely be the first opportunity for a decision on how the US should respond to the attack on a key Middle East ally. Any decision may depend on what kind of evidence the US and Saudi investigators are able to provide proving that the cruise missile and drone strike was launched by Iran, as a number of officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have asserted. Iran has denied involvement and warned the US that any attack will spark an “all-out war” with immediate retaliation from Tehran. Both Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence have condemned the attack on Saudi oil facilities as “an act of war.” Pence said Trump will “review the facts, and he’ll make a decision about next steps. But the American people can be confident that the United States of America is going to defend our interest in the region, and we’re going to stand with our allies.” The US response could involve military, political and economic actions, and the military options could range from no action at all to airstrikes or less visible moves such as cyberattacks. One likely move would be for the US to provide additional military support to help Saudi Arabia defend itself from attacks from the north, since most of its defenses have focused on threats from Houthis in Yemen to the south. Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, emphasized to a small number of journalists traveling with him Monday that the question of whether the US responds is a “political judgment” and not for the military. “It is my job to provide military options to the president should he decide to respond with military force,” Dunford said. Trump will want “a full range of options,” he said. “In the Middle East, of course, we have military forces there and we do a lot of planning and we have a lot of options.” US Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Michigan, said in an interview Thursday that if Trump “chooses an option that involves a significant military strike on Iran that, given the current climate between the US and Iran, there is a possibility that it could escalate into a medium to large-scale war, I believe the president should come to Congress.” Slotkin, a former top Middle East policy adviser for the Pentagon, said she hopes Trump considers a broad range of options, including the most basic choice, which would be to place more forces and defensive military equipment in and around Saudi Arabia to help increase security. A forensic team from US Central Command is pouring over evidence from cruise missile and drone debris, but the Pentagon said the assessment is not finished. Officials are trying to determine if they can get navigational information from the debris that could provide hard evidence that the strikes came from Iran. Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said Thursday that the US has a high level of confidence that officials will be able to accurately determine exactly who launched the attacks last weekend. US officials were unwilling to predict what kind of response Trump will choose. In June, after Iran shot down an American surveillance drone, Trump initially endorsed a retaliatory military strike then abruptly called it off because he said it would have killed dozens of Iranians. The decision underscores the president’s long-held reluctance to embroil the country in another war in the Middle East. Instead, Trump opted to have US military cyber forces carry out a strike against military computer systems used by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to control rocket and missile launchers, according to US officials. https://www.arabnews.com/node/1557096/middle-east

  15. Baghdad Post Friday, 20 September 2019 14:32 New US sanctions and accusations accelerate the overthrow of Iran's economy US sanctions that the United States intends to impose on Iran will make the economy of Iran in a new phase of decline against the backdrop of more than caused by Tehran 's oil industry, and other linked up uranium enrichment. On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump said new sanctions on Iran would be announced within the next 48 hours, and Trump told a news conference that the United Nations would have an important role in investigating Saudi Aramco attacks. He said the United States had several options to respond to Iran in connection with the Aramco attack, and that sanctions would be tough on Iran. US Energy Secretary Rick Perry said on Monday he believed the oil market's response to an attack on two oil facilities in Saudi Arabia earlier this week would be positive. "Despite Iran's malicious efforts , we are very confident in the strength of the market and that its response will be positive," Perry said in a speech to the annual general conference of IAEA member states . The British newspaper "The Times" warned of Iran's plan and its allies to sabotage the Saudi oil trade, endangering world trade, and called for containing Tehran's aggressive behavior to prevent it from escalating tensions in the region. When the world's largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia is hit by drones, everyone is affected, the newspaper said in an editorial entitled "Attacks on Saudi Oil: Iran's Adventure." P d considered that the attack, whether launched by the coup Houthis in Yemen or Daamohm in Iran, not just a skirmish in the context of a dispute long standing between the two competing forces in the Middle East. In an attempt to manage its financial crisis caused by US sanctions, Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei has agreed to withdraw nearly $ 300 million from a sovereign fund based on oil sales revenues, despite earlier warnings that his bankruptcy risk would increase rapidly. It is not the first time that Khamenei has approved a request to withdraw from the savings of the National Development Fund, according to the student news agency ISNA. As part of Tehran's attempts to bypass US sanctions, an economic analysis predicted that Tehran's attempt to find a banking alternative in cooperation with Russia for the SWIFT financial correspondence network would allow it to continue its financial transactions, which were stopped by the US sanctions imposed on it since the end of last year. Two days ago, the official IRNA news agency quoted Yuri Ushakov, assistant to Russian President for International Affairs, that Moscow is seeking to cooperate with Tehran in order to find an alternative to the Swift system, so as to expand the direct interaction in financial payments between the Russian banking system and his Iranian counterpart known as "Sibam". According to him. Iran, Russia and Turkey are supposed to give up the dollar, but national currencies will be the alternative. https://www.thebaghdadpost.com/ar/Story/180218/عقوبات-أمريكية-جديدة-واتهامات-تعجل-بالإطاحة-باقتصاد-إيران
