  2. the party who escalated the tension is Iran. They have never shown a sign of peace. They keep attacking oil tankers, supporting Houthis. Saudi Arabia cannot stay silent.

  3. Bring all US troops home and put them on the border. If Iran attacks then the us can attack them back. Otherwise get the fuck out of their backyard you trespassing invading foreign occupiers.
