Having not been there in about `12 years, did they buy an Army? Grow an Army? Make an Army using magic?

somebody help me out here!!!

Saudi Arabia has been spending a lot of cash upgrading their military strength and creating insurgent forces abroad They recently purchased about 180 German Leopard II tanks (Not sure on the amount tbh) a couple months back. That, coupled with their alliance to UAE, Bahrain and Yemen, makes their position more steadfast than what Israel and Iran are currently at. UAE has a squadron of F-22s stationed there and can also count on Arab League forces. Iran has a beaten down Syria at their back and enemies on all sides. Iraq to the west (crammed with US bases), Turkey to the North West (NATO member), Pakistan to the East (targets of US drone strikes), and US Carrier groups to their West and South.

Iran isn't going to fall for this propaganda spin. They know the Saudi's follow the US orders and that the US depends on their oil. Iran is going to strike everything that even remotely benefits the US economy and military when they are attacked.

And the fecal matter moves slightly closer to the air conditioning.

I was under the impression the the US Dollar only depends on OPEC oil trading on the Dollar, I'm thinking I heard the US oil consumption comes from Canada Mexico and Argentina

thanks for the Saudi military intel

I found this interesting while hunting up an answer to your question. It made me curious too and while I've seen plenty of charts for total consumption or production by nation...I can't say that I'd been looking for U.S. import by nation recently. It's a bit surprising, how that turned out.

First, by raw numbers...Obama is right on one thing. U.S. imports have dropped steadily and through his term and well into the last Administration.

Second was the OPEC numbers... That was surprising for who we DO get the most from. The top 3 OPEC nations by barrels annually are:

Saudi Arabia - 436,051
Venezuela - 344,685
Nigeria - 298,153

Total U.S. Oil Import numbers by block and nation (Annually)

(Non OPEC round out with Canada, Mexico and that order. Definitely a surprise or two!)

I expected the Saudi leaders to say that, they hate any country that helps the west anyway, but maybe Israel will have enough Nuclear Rockets to get shut of Saudi towns and Cities too, it looks like we are all going to see a Firework night in the Middle East soon that will make Nov 5 in UK look like a funeral service, lets hope we get the BBC supporting the good guys this time, as they mostly only support the Terrorists who kill British people & Americans.

This is all lip service. Israeli jets will fly right over Jordan, Syria, Iraq and not be seen.
