F-16's don't have a very long shelf life with no replacement parts sent to fix them.

    Their passive aggressive behavior with the US is getting kinda old in the first place. Give Israel the "good stuff" in equal proportion to what we've given the Saud's to boost their needs and then let the Saud's deal with the Iranian's and Iraqi's on their own. I'm sure the Shiite's would just love to control Mecca... Better yet, give Turkey the goods and encourage an Ottoman revival.

    Saudi Arabia is in no position to be making demands or dictating terms...
    Given the rate at which China and India are industrializing (and the growing populations of both countries) I fear the Saudis may be spoilt for choice.

    It was because it was to oppose Obama. Ordinarily it will be the right trying to get a war going. This is further proof that the right's agenda is the teabagger agenda and that's totally made up of racist hate for Obama. That's why they are making themselves look stupid by trying to take credit away from Obama for his peace initiative that is working!

    Two tantrums in a week from the Kingdom. First The UN was snubbed by the Saudi Arabians, kings of Human Rights abuses which was rather entertaining in itself...Now the Sunni-based Saudis are annoyed at the US due to lack of assistance in helping them dominate the Middle East...

    Gosh. One can only imagine the tantrums and fallout if they were told it's about time that they did something about the dire human rights situation in the kingdom. Sickens me that my leaders happily look the other way whilst they oppress their own people and hold disgusting attitudes towards women's rights, religious freedoms, press freedoms etc....

    Mornin Serenity. Looks like today the Sauds Intel minister says they will be making a shift in their relations with us.

    Do the Saud and Sunni actually think they can intimidate us and that they can make demands of us?

    What do you think should be our wake up call for them?

    Why not tell the Saudis that the US doesn't want their oil? Then watch as poor people freeze to death because the shortfall can't be made up quick enough. Then blame Obama for thinking it was a good idea!
