US President Donald Trump has accused Iran of being behind the recent attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, claiming that the evidence points squarely towards Tehran.

Speaking about the attacks with Fox News on Friday morning, Trump said the evidence gathered by the US about them has “essentially got Iran written all over it.”

Trump made the comments when asked on the Fox and Friends show what evidence Washington had found to prove Iran was behind the attacks, and what the US response would be. The president pointed to footage of the reportedly “exposed” Iranian authorities removing an unexploded mine from one of the evacuated vessels overnight.

“You saw the boat at night trying to take the mine off and they successfully took it off,” Trump said, adding that Iran didn’t want to leave any evidence behind. “I guess they don’t know that we have things that...can detect in the dark.”

When pressed on what the US response would be to Iran's alleged attacks, Trump said “We’re going to see, but we’re not going to take it lightly.”

R ~ So this evidence he speaks of... would it be a report written up by those who always do this shit? Trump is either so sequestered that all he reads is Kushner's take on things as dictated to him by the Mossad or he is playing 4D chess again, with pawns only. Of course attacking oil supplies is a good way to get the price back up so the Saudis can pay for the billions of dollars they have spent (or borrowed) on military hardware to destroy Yemen and steal their oil.
