I wonder if we’d just sit back if the Saudis were attacked, however. We’ve trained quite a number of Saudi officers, including pilots, and they own a significant amount of US equipment (to include the planes the pilots fly). Plus, we’ve got assets there ourselves, as well as major presence in both Bahrain (5th Fleet) and Qatar. Qatar is physically connected to Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain is just a few miles away via a long bridge. Things could get VERY dicey in the event of that scenario. Possible? Scarily, yes. But I still think there are inhibiting factors.
