BACKGROUND ON SAUDI ARABIA REFINERY ATTACK-WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW-IT'S MORE DANGEROUS & PERILOUS THAN WE CAN EVEN FATHOM!
1 USA and Saudi Arabia have a mutual defense treaty which states if one or the other is attacked that attacked country can demand help to fight the agression
2 most of the oil products east of the Mississippi River the refineries use Saudi crude oil. Saudi crude output is now 1/2 from what it was yesterday. A huge material impact on USA economy like it or not!!
3 NATO is also treaty bound to protect Saudi Arabia same way
The saudies have formally requested help against this attack so in the most pure legal sense we are at war with Iran. (not just going to war but treaty bound to defend and fight.
Trump will fight because double the price of oil will tank the USA economy especially in the upcoming holiday season.
Also even if you put all smart engineer's and factories to build the replacement parts you are still at least 6 to 9 MONTHS BEFORE turn on of the damaged areas
Maybe could patch some if the patches held but not at full pressure
I hope this explaination helps you understand the very delicate nature of the problem
