Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan told European diplomats the USA (Obama) failed to act against Syria's Assad and has so badly damaged relations with Israel that an exchanged between Iran and Israel seem all but inevitable now.
Obama also failed to back Saudi support for Bahrain when it crushed an anti-government revolt in 2011. Setting up a swarm of Al Qaeda threats and attacks in the region.
'The current charade...over Bashar's chemical arsenal...only give[s] Mr. Obama an opportunity to back down (from military strikes), but also help[s] Assad to butcher his people,' said Prince Turki of the Saudi royal family.
Saudi Arabia is the world's biggest oil exporter. The kingdom reciprocates US purchase of oil by buying U.S.Treasury bonds. In other words, they buy Obama's debt. Saudi Arabia also buys billions in arms and fighter jets from US suppliers.
Losing Saudi Arabia as an ally is tantamount to losing Israel as an ally. Without these two on our side in the Middle East the chances of a nuclear exchange in the region increases exponentially.
