I’m glad to see that we may not keep such close ties with Saudi Arabia. There is a lot bad about that partnership, from the Saudis’ treatment of women, to the whole “war on terror” thing (which ironically originated there anyway). You know with it being all about money, that a lot bad is bound to happen.
Zero Hedge posted this article about how mad they are that we have not yet attacked Syria, and are now negotiating with Iran.
A quote they lifted from WSJ: “The monarchy was particularly angered by Mr. Obama’s decision to scrap plans to bomb Syria in response to the alleged chemical-weapons attack in August and, more recently, tentative overtures between Mr. Obama and Iran’s new president.”
I wonder how much of this is due to our decreasing reliance on them for oil? Good news.
