Iran issues wild new threat as US deploys troops to Saudi Arabia

Iran has escalated their rhetoric once again.

The United States military will be deploying hundreds, but not thousands, of troops to Saudi Arabia in the coming weeks in an effort to defend the Kingdom’s oil infrastructure from Iranian attacks.

Iran has been incessant in that irritation of the oil industry in recent months, launching magnetic mine attacks on oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz, drone bombings on refineries and pipelines, and even downing a US drone.

Now, after the aforementioned announcement regarding US troops heading to Saudi Arabia, Iran is escalating their rhetoric like never before.

Tensions escalated between arch-foes Iran and the United States after last weekend’s attacks on Saudi energy giant Aramco’s Abqaiq processing plant and Khurais oilfield halved the kingdom’s oil output.

Yemen’s Huthi rebels have claimed responsibility for the strikes but the US says it has concluded the attacks involved cruise missiles from Iran and amounted to “an act of war”.

The deployment of troops to Saudi Arabia has come under criticism due to the Kingdom’s laundry list of human rights abuses and possible connections to the terror attacks of September 11th, 2001.
