Are the Saudis more afraid of us or Iran?
Saudis should worry more about Iran than us as we are not threatening the royals and the whole house of saud.
Are the Saudis wanting to have a higher price of oil or lower?
They’d love to have a higher price for oil but are edumacated enough to understand that if the price of oil is raised too much then a recession ensues and everyone loses.
Are the Saudis wanting to have oil flowing to the United States or not?
No, they want oil to continue to flow to the countries they sell to, mainly NOT the U.S.
Are the saudis our friends? NO, simply a marriage of convience. We’d both love to divorce but can’t afford to.
The answer to all those questions means that the House of Saud wants nothing to do with bring the US to it’s knees. Therefore it isn’t a cover up of the the Saud Royal Family making enemies with us, it’s more about public perception here at home about the Saud Royal Family
