DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Yemen's Houthi rebels launched drone attacks on the world's largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia and a major oil field Saturday, sparking huge fires and halting about half of the supplies from the world's largest exporter of oil.

The attacks were the latest of many drone assaults on the kingdom's oil infrastructure assaults in recent weeks, but easily the most damaging. They raise concerns about the global oil supply and likely will further increase tensions across the Persian Gulf amid an escalating crisis between the U.S. and Iran over its unraveling nuclear deal with world powers.

Time to get the US back into fracking.  Drill, baby! Drill!

We're already doing that thanks to Trump.

If this brings gas prices up I'm going to be pissed 

Not gonna lie, I'm a little excited to see what my U.S. based oil stock does monday. Been hanging on to this dog waiting for a miracle.

on the other hand, I'll be selling my Houthi rebel stock at the first opportunity. Their future isn't looking good.

Prices will go up for sure.  The oil industry is booming in the US.  My wife's uncle works in the west Texas oil fields and said that anyone who is willing to work can make $50-65/hr to start.

As a guy also into oil stocks, why couldn't they have waited till Monday to attack?  The Saudis may be able to recover most of the production by Monday.

good fuck them.


15 of the 19 on 9/11 were from SA.


they had something to do with it period.


the only weapons we should be giving SA are American rockets and missiles fired into all their oil fields.


Saudi Arabia is ready to fight Iran to the last dead american.

Houthis have held up pretty well. Exposed the saudi's military as most expensive paper tiger in history.

Yes he did. There is some "evidence" the drones were supplied by Iran.
