Though Saudia Arabia has an outsized impact on US foreign policy, the country largely operates behind a corporate media curtain. It’s unusual to get an empirical glimpse into how Americans feel about the place. Given Saudi Arabia is a putative ally, they feel pretty crappy about the desert dwellers:
Cringe. We don’t need Saudi oil and we don’t need to facilitate a genocide against Houthis in Yemen. They are among the most pitiful, pitiable, poorest people on the planet and they don’t threaten us at all. It’s not like 19 of their nationals crashed airplanes into our skyscrapers, after all.
Fellow repulsive Republicans, it’s long past time we wash our hands of the House of Saud.
