It is no secret that Iran and Saudi-Arabia are enemies. They have a long history of hostilities against each other. Iran has one big obstacle to overcome. Saudi-Arabia has one very close ally: the United States.
We can’t state that Saudi Arabia is the bacon of feminism, freedom, and liberty. It is best to describe Saudi-Arabia as one of the most terrible regimes in the world. But Saudi-Arabia has a strength: the Petrodollar.
Saudi-Arabia is crucial and vital for the USA to keep the dollar as the world reserve currency.
This comes after mismanagement from the USA government. The warfare and welfare programs made the USA Gold standard unsustainable. so in 1974, the Gold standard was finally abolished.
When we look at how Saudi-Arabia came into a position to be of any help to the USA? Well, the Dollars flew into the country in exchange for oil.
The problem continued for decades. At the time the USA was into new wars and had additional welfare spending.
The problem accelerated with the oil exporters who control USA financial assets. Assets like USA treasury bills.
So with this, the USA is actually not an ally of Saudi-Arabia. It is more than the USA is Saudi’s slave.
