    or any other Middle East oil. We get almost all our oil from Mexico, Canada, and Nigeria.

    In the end, reality always wins.

      IMHO we should let Saudi Arabia fail & fall.

      Our major allies in the region are Israel and Turkey, both of which are rational governments with which we can conduct normal business.  

      We should also re-open diplomatic relations with Iran and try to heal up the old wounds.  Iran will eventually modernize, I would say faster than Saudi.

      But in any case the Saudi regime "is not our friend" and we should treat them accordingly.

      We got the future back. Uh-oh.
