​Obama in Saudi Arabia: Will Riyadh really go it alone?

31.03.2014 00:47

Saudi officials are highly displeased over Washington’s overtures to Iran and reluctance to strike Syria and have threatened to break away from the US sphere, but the monarchy may still see an oil-for-security partnership with the US as the safest policy.

America is looking to start another conflict, ? Could be North and South Korea?? "But they are looking." ""Gotta keep those arm's sales up''


That may have been a cute comment. If it weren't on RT.

2012 US arms sales 8.760 billion dollars

Russia arm sales 8.003 billion

I just don't get why you would even post that comment.

Saudi Arabia will go with Israel (and maybe with Quatar and Turkey) to destroy Syria and Iran. They always are ready to finance and create a war.

I'm reminded of the old saying: There's no honor among thieves.

We must become better friends with Saudi Arabia becaue when fracking turns our country into a desert we will need the Saudis to teach us how to live in a desert.

Not only is the US in an oil boom, it will soon become the world's top oil producer, beating out SA. Who would have thought that even 10-15 years ago?

At what cost?
All the oil you have that is being accessed through fracking is going to destroy your environment and poison your water supply.
So in the end you will just turn the USA into a polluted desert to make the 1% richer.

What can you say about a man that wears a dress and paints on facial hair with a magic marker?

I wonder what will happen to these OPEC states in 200+ years when their oil isn't needed nearly as much???


Sh ale gas and oil is not cheap to produce. OPEC and others can agree to lower prices which will make shale oil and gas production non-profitable.
And the results of tracking can be devastating.

So the future is not so bright as it seems.

Ha ha, poor fake Saudis. Iran has the backing of its people, you have the backing of a fickle fair weather friend. Better keep the cheap oil flowing or you'll look like the bully with the bloody nose very shortly.

Sadam used to say Iraq has centuries old civilizattion. But he was vanished by USA. Now Iranians utter the same words. In fact these are the words of late shah Pehlvi. Iranians are themselves Shittes and abuse Sunnis who are in fact real muslims and custodian of holy cities of Makkah amd Madina KSA

One day Iran we be on the side of the west, Russian we pay for been a betrayer.

Our oil-addiction car toys and over-industrializati on have frozen our minds to remain in the 20th century mindset...

Corporatis m & War machines automatically for oil/resources/slaves ... as a way of living sustainably?

Debt/loan/credit = money (redshield money power structure and US servants), Usury, digitally QE finance running over $100+ toilet paper dollars) blindly let us plunder our home planet for more QE $1000+ trillion garbage derivatives universe...

the world is a mess, because the concentration of power in a few hands => mis-pricing of everything

The Oil mafia nation can't produce anything but oil and terrorist. How pathetic. They desperately need US help for everything.
