Whatever the source of the attack on Saudi oil fields proves to be, we should not leap to the KSA’s defense. They should handle it themselves. If they need help, they could withdraw resources from their ill-conceived war against Yemen or ask for help from the United Nations Security Council.
If the UNSec passes a resolution to defend KSA, we should not participate by sending troops. We are not the world’s policeman and the last time we helped the KSA we got terrorist attacks for our trouble. They are a heinous regime who are not our friends let alone our allies. If it was, indeed, the Iranians behind the attacks, it’s one heinous regime against another.
We’d be better off if they both lost.
