keeping US and UK interests safe is a valid concern, guess I'm just wondering how much of the Saudi threat is real. they strike me as entirely capable of looking the other way and letting some things happen, or worse helping make some things happen. but I'd have to believe an out of control terrorist state would also pose big problems for the Saudi royals as well.

wouldn't surprise me, playing both sides. if they pulled even just a portion of their investments in US companies and assets, the stock market would tank and our economy would be wrecked. money talks.

ironic that they have this immense leverage over us, yet little of it has to do with oil.

Conservatives Are Furious Biden Delivered a Non-Insane Presidential Speech

The American presidency offers numerous opportunities for a chief executive to make use of his symbolic role as head of state in a way that advances the national interest while simultaneously benefiting his own political standing. Donald Trump usually forfeited these opportunities, either because he was unable to pretend to care about people who didn’t vote for him or because he couldn’t adapt his free-form insult-comic rants to a teleprompter format.

Joe Biden has reaped the normal rewards that come from behaving like a normal president — perhaps benefitting more than most due to the contrast with his unhinged predecessor. This has naturally infuriated Republicans, who see Biden’s strategy of reaping positive coverage by acting normal as a form of cheating.

Can guess no one in US will be unhappy to receive the new check,
no matter what the alleged IQ of the Prez is.

Biden's New Deal: Re-engineering America, quickly

People close to Biden tell us he’s feeling bullish on what he can accomplish, and is fully prepared to support the dashing of the Senate’s filibuster rule to allow Democrats to pass voting rights and other trophy legislation for his party. He loves the growing narrative that he’s bolder and bigger-thinking than President Obama.
