In Europe, they doubted Iran’s involvement in the attack on refineries and warn the US against the operation

The European press demonstrates the extreme nervousness of the EU regarding those statements that come from the US to Iran in connection with the events at the refineries and oil fields in Saudi Arabia.


In Europe, they doubted Iran’s involvement in the attack on refineries and warn the US against the operation


Norwegian Aftenposten writes that the US found that the attack did not come from Yemen. At the same time, Norwegian journalists note that so far Washington has not provided evidence of Iran's involvement in the attack of drones on Saudi targets.

But while for Norway the rise in oil prices looks generally positive, for many other European countries this is an extra cost. The German media clearly make it clear that the United States "needs to be thought out before declaring a possible military operation."

Recall that Donald Trump announced the bringing of troops "in full readiness" in connection with the attack on oil production and refining facilities in Saudi Arabia.

Die Welt released material in which the authors write the following:

The meaning is clear: if Tehran really bears direct responsibility for this attack, then Riyadh and Washington should answer, but this could be the beginning of a military escalation - in the Persian Gulf, whose countries provide a third of the world's oil supplies.

Other German publications add that oil prices have already skyrocketed and could rise another percent on 15-20 in the next few days.

If the United States begins a military operation against Iran, the price of “black gold” will go to uncontrolled growth, which will lead to a sharp reduction in the level of GDP growth in the European Union, depending on oil supplies, including from the Middle East.

German journalists ask themselves: if Iran carried out the attack, then why did it need it in today's conditions?

From Die Welt's article:

No one doubts that Iran has the ability to launch cruise missiles and drones. But why did he need to attack the main US ally among the Arab countries, because they try not to provoke Washington. In Tehran, accusations from the United States called the maximum lie.

The French press notes that if it comes to the military confrontation between the United States and Iran, the United States will not have any reserves to restrain oil prices.

Noteworthy commentary from a French newspaper reader The Tribune:

Trump needs an expensive barrel. This is the only way to restart profitable shale oil production in the United States. And they are trying to make us believe that these are Hussites. If they helped someone, then not Iran.

From another comment in the same French edition:

The US is fueling tensions, and after that they can get what they want. Europe must withdraw from NATO; Russia has other things to do than attack the European Union.

    I would be very surprised if the EU had a different opinion. Iran, with its cheap oil, is also needed by the EU and China and the DPRK.

      And USA needs to produce cost-effective shale oil. So, Trump most likely himself bombed the factories, and the Husites silently reminded themselves of the whole world. Putin decided to push the S-300 or 400 to the Arabs. All their benefit is watched. bully

          Well, \ you forgot one more nuance: as one laboratory assistant of our department used to say: "Technique is in the hands of a savage - piece of iron!

At one time, the Israelis" clicked "Iraqi" Scuds "with the same" Patriots "(and older modification) without any problems!

      According to Bloomberg and leading world analysts, Saudi Aramco will not restore production and in six months, damage by billions of $, plus a part of the equipment is irreplaceable in principle, that is, it is unique and it will be necessary to design it to order practically from scratch. However, I think by this time the Hussites will further reduce the oil and gas infrastructure of Saudi Arabia.

      At the same time, the United States and Saudi Arabia, although they believe that the Iranians inflicted it from the territory of Iraq, can’t prove exactly where they started from, since none of the missiles and UAVs were detected by air defense systems until the time of strikes.

    The United States easily goes to provocations of military conflicts around the world. Was their "shale" revolution a decoration? Due to a cheap loan, it was artificially kept afloat, and now it's the edge?
    Then it’s clear where the drones came from. Iran certainly has nothing to do with it.

    This was understandable, from the first minute of the explosion, that Iran has nothing to do with it. The country is practically in a state of siege, it makes no sense to carry out such an attack, unlike the minke whales, to solve their problems and to further aggravate the situation over Iran.

    Iran inflicted a preemptive strike on the enemy’s infrastructure, saying that it was able to increase exports if Iran blocked the Persian Gulf in the event of a military conflict.
    Iran defends itself by attacking major energy producers.
    The US and Saudi are shocked by the fact that their plans were violated.

            Did you even look at the map? Caliber from the Caspian flew almost in a straight line and it so happened that they had to fly Iran and Iraq and they were given a corridor.
            For Iran, making a detour to fly from Israel is too risky; I would rather believe in Israeli attack drones than in such an adventure.

    So, the conclusion is imposed anyway one, in the event of an escalation of the conflict and a blow to Iran’s oil infrastructure or Persian block. Gulf, a global oil deficit will nullify any attempt - to start a war against Iran.
    That’s just what will happen, if a natural disaster happens, and will cause irreparable damage in Iran ... by the whole World, who will help to restore the infrastructure?

    Of course, this is beneficial to the Americans.
    And oil will rise in price, shale, respectively, will be profitable to produce.
    And Saudi Arabia will purchase from them new air defense systems.
    And the Middle East will turn into a war.
    We can continue to put pressure on Iran and Yemen.

The United States had data on the SAR army's chemical attacks against civilians, which knocked out a tear from his hysterical daughter, as a result, they struck Syria with a hundred "Tamogavks" ... As a result, the information turned out to be fake, and the "white helmets" were accomplices of terrorists ... The list goes on and on, right up to fake Russia's interference in their elections ...
