Pompeo favours 'peaceful resolution' to crisis after Saudi attack
[DAWN] The US wants a peaceful solution to the crisis sparked by attacks on Saudi oil facilities, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday, after Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for
spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet

raised the prospect of "all-out war".
Pompeo has blamed Iran for the dramatic weekend assault on two facilities, condemning an "act of war" which knocked out half the kingdom's oil production.
The rhetoric has raised the risk of an unpredictable escalation in a tinderbox region where Soddy Arabia

The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
and Iran are locked in a decades-old struggle for dominance.
After meeting with allies in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi, Pompeo said there was an "enormous consensus in the region" that Iran carried out the attacks, despite its denials.
But he said the US was intent on finding a way out of the confrontation.
"We'd like a peaceful resolution. I think we've demonstrated that," he told news hounds. "I hope the Islamic Theocratic
Republic of Iran sees it the same way."
Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif earlier warned any US or Saudi military strike on Iran could cause "all-out war".
"We don't want war, we don't want to engage in a military confrontation," he told CNN in an interview aired Thursday.
"But we won't blink to defend our territory."
