Saudi Arabia has warned the US that Iran is preparing to attack it and Iraq “soon” to divert the attention of its population from the anti-government protests that have been going on for more than a month.

According to The Wall Street Journal , citing officials from Saudi Arabia and the United States.

The Saudi side sent the Americans their own intelligence confirming Iran’s plans. The country is preparing an attack on both the kingdom and the Iraqi city of Erbil. Saudi Arabia, the United States and several other neighboring countries have increased the level of combat readiness of their armed forces. The White House National Security Council confirmed that they are concerned about the information and are ready to respond to the attack from Iran.

“We are concerned about the threat picture and are in constant contact due to military and intelligence channels with the Saudis. We will without any doubt act in defense of our interests and partners in the region,” said one of the interlocutors of the publication.

Iran began attacking northern Iraq from the end of September. The country has launched dozens of ballistic missiles and drones. By the way, one with him was shot down by American troops, because he was flying to Erbil, where US troops are based.

Tehran has justified attacks of fomenting unrest inside Iran by Kurdish separatist groups ostensibly based in Erbil.

At the same time, the Iranian authorities escalated the conflict with Saudi Arabia, accusing the kingdom, the United States and Israel of inciting anti-government protests in the country.

  1. “We will without any doubt act in defense of our interests and partners in the region,” ….

    That is baffling. The idea of sending US forces to help the Saudis whilst refusing to put ground troops in Ukraine; not even air or sea support, is simply outrageous.
    Iran cannot be allowed to take Saudi land; agreed. But Ukraine must now be helped quickly to win against putlerstan first.

    • Indeed, if mafia land isn’t defeated as soon as possible, things will only get more complicated. If China throws its hat into the ring or some other trash country, then we are heading into very dark times. The West MUST show strength for once. All this pathetic weakness is only an encouraging signal to all the rogue states to do what they want. Just as we’ve been predicting all along!!!

  2. Do you wonder why the prophets of old we’re consistently persecuted, even killed and their message resisted and rejected? Do you wonder why the prophets did not find a willing listening audience? Because true prophets have always told men what they NEEDED to hear. While false prophets tell men what they WANT to hear.
