The Saudis don’t feel like they can rely on the US for protection anymore. They don’t have a large Saudi population to have a military large enough (and loyal enough) to protect their land, government and resources. Nuclear weapons are a cheap defense when you don’t have enough Soldiers.

That is the big story here. No confidence that the U.S. will do anything to stop Iran from developing and then deploying nuclear weapons. The Saudis no longer trust the current administration. Barry's complete scrambling and the undoing of middle east relations on display. What a mess he's created of things.
