Saudi Arabia and the US have a partnership that's been in the making for over seven decades. It started after World War II and survived the Iranian Revolution, the Cold War, the Gulf War, September 11, and the proliferation of conflicts across the Middle East. This whole time, the US has been selling weapons to Saudi Arabia -- now its number one customer. Saudis bought bombs, tanks, guns, and planes over the years to defend themselves from various threats. The US supplied those weapons because the Saudi’s threats have usually been a threat to the US as well.

Today, there's a shift in the relationship. Saudi Arabia’s intervention in Yemen has created the worst humanitarian disaster in the world - and thrown the Middle East into chaos. The problem is, the Saudis are using US bombs to do it.

I wonder what will happen when all the oil in middle east dries up. This single form of resource has caused so many innocent causalities.

I thought America was the first country that wanted world peace after world war yet they are also the country that made the most weapons for war?

Not even 9/11 could stop the US from selling arms to Saudi Arabia...
Make America racist again

We don't need Saudi light oil aka "light sweet crude". Despite the potential environmental hazards every country has an abundant supply of alternative shale oil through fracking.
