Though by now Washington appears no closer to military strikes on Iran than it was before the Sept. 14 Saudi Aramco attack, a joint statement by Britain, France, and Germany has brought the kind of international allied consensus the US administration is looking for.
The three European countries announced it was “clear” Iran was responsible for the twin aerial strikes on the facilities, however, stopped short of calling for any military retaliation, instead urged Iran to reengage negotiations on its nuclear and missile programs. The statement does warn of “risk of a major conflict” and underscores making “collective efforts towards regional stability and security” which includes bringing the Yemen war to an end.
“The time has come for Iran to accept a long term negotiation framework for its nuclear program, as well as regional security issues, which include its missile programs,” the three governments said. Iran has in the past said its missile programs complied with international norms and remains a non-starter in any negotiations with the US or its allies.
Why is it up to US to do something about Iran? Saudi Arabia was attacked, not US. Why have we sold so much advanced military weaponry to the Saudis if we are expected to do their fighting for them? They have the ability to do it themselves and they can better afford it than we can. I can justify giving some assistance in some small way but the bulk of responsibility is theirs.
