Since the Truman years the house of Saud and the American government have worked out certain treaties that binds the US to protect the Saudi monarchy and the production of oil.
So I wonder what will happen if the Saud monarchy comes under attack and what role our government will take to protect it.

Iran said that if asked they would help Iraq in getting rid of ISIS looks like they were true to their word. Hezbollah also said they would help as well. Israel will not be happy seeing how America and Iran is on the same side in this because it may help improve relations between the two countries.

Shiite militia groups are being trained and supplied by Iran. and even While the U.S. does air strikes onto ISIS, Iran is running the show on the ground. Iranian troops are on the ground in Iraq running artillery and other machinery, operating alongside Kurdish and Shiite forces. One soldier states that Iran controls parts of Iraq.
Many civilians are not happy with having to choose between ISIS and Iran as allies on the ground.
Iraq seems to be in shambles, with parts being controlled by Iran and ISIS.

There are some in the US that are scared to death that Obama will work with Iran and actually improve relations with them in the long run. They will vehemently oppose anything that might allow US and Iran to stop being enemies.
