Not at the moment.
Like Kuwait, the 26 or so million Saudis are dependent on US protection.
There are many corrupt and religious clowns in the world, and this does not equal an invasion.
Otherwise the ANC would have been removed from South Africa by an US invading force (which only took Mandela's party off its terrorist list in 2008,
although they also funded them), because the corrupt circus here sometimes beggars belief.
But as a thought experiment and flight of fancy I'd say the West simply places sanctions on Saudi Arabia and its ruling class's military when they
Soon a similar Wahabi sect (in the sense of legalism, but not foreign relations) will take power and execute some of the more corrupt and decadent
Most will repent and be forgiven. Oil wells will be destroyed or sold to enemies of the US.
The monies will be distributed in a more "socialist" way, which means a new elite and army, and some scary weapons.

The refugees can leave and the rest can go back to herding camels in the desert.
The radicals can provoke a Western response, and when the Muslim holy sites are threatened World War III will break out.
Europe has long opened the gates of Vienna and allowed Wahabism inside.
That will be the European civil war from hell.
Saudi Arabia could be easily destroyed by the US with targeted weapons.
But what to do with fast Islamizing Europe?
One can't just nuke all the Christians between the enemy?
Then Iran would get involved, and probably choose the side of fellow Muslims (no matter how begrudgingly).
Moderate Muslims in the West will suffer greatly.
Westerners in Muslim countries will suffer.
I can guess who will win.
That's why Islamists don't want open battle but gradual infiltration.
Anyway, enough fantasy for one evening.
Power relations are complex, and despite Bin Laden and pro-terrorist ideologies on the one hand, Saudi Arabia also has deep roots with US political
cartels on the other.
They'll keep funding their Saudi friends (and vice-versa) to chase down those rogues.
Besides, what's a world without bad guys (depending on where you live)?
