    Saudi Arabia's airforce bombing Syria's military would drive oil prices even higher than they've been on speculation the US would do it. And of course stopping a chemical war on their Sunni sect by a proxy for their existential enemies in Iran (which has SA surrounded, by Iran + Syria) means retaining their power grip, not to mention having the "policeman" role there that could put down the jihadists among the rebels that threaten the Sauds next.

    No compassion required, nor expected. It is precisely the Saudi military that fits this bill, if any does.
