The US is being fooled that it needs to rescue its ally in the Middle East.

The Saudis always get others to fight for them.

The idea that Saudi Arabia, which is not even a treaty ally of the United States, would set the terms for military retaliation was bizarre.

Suddenly “America First” had given way to “Saudi Arabia First.”

"The U.S. is not obligated to fight Saudi Arabia's wars and we urge Trump to discard his repeated willingness to cede U.S. policy to other nations."

“A common thread in the various blunders was the assumption that the initial phase of a conflict would be utterly decisive.l”

“President’s approach to foreign policy, from defending his Russian counterpart to supporting Bolsonaro after he rejected aid, has experts sounding alarms”

“The bottom line of accomplishing such a task is strong-arming MbS until he says yes, or assisting other Saudi royals to dispose of him if he insists on saying no.”
