I don't expect us to attack Saudi, but I think we need to put pressure on them to belly up to the bar financially if not otherwise. We need to make it clear to them that Shah of Iran fell because Ford/Carter failed to support them. The biggest threat to Saudi is if we let it be known that we will no longer support them militarily.

The Saudi's are in a very tough spot.
I'm gonna' cut them a lot of slack, hoping that despite unpleasant public poturing and pronouncements, behind the scenes they are helping us more than we will ever be told.
