The primary reason we are with Saudi Arabia is because we need the oil. Now, we don't need the oil so much. And if we let our people really go, we wouldn't need the oil at all. And we could let everybody else fight it out. Look, Saudi Arabia is going to be in big trouble pretty soon. And they're going to need help.
Because if you look at Yemen and you look at that border, you don't have to be an expert to know that is one long border. And they're not going in for Yemen. They're going in for the oil. They're going in for Saudi Arabia. So Saudi Arabia is going to need help.
Like it or don't like it, people have backed Saudi Arabia. What I really mind though is we back it at tremendous expense. We get nothing for it. And they're making a billion dollars a day. But I think Saudi Arabia is a major target, a major target. And I think that's why --


You think this is going to be the United States' responsibility if Saudi Arabia erupts into a civil war? This is the great fear among a lot of people --

Well, that could happen.

-- in the Middle East. You think it's the U.S. responsibility to help settle that?

Well, I say this. Now, because of what's happened with the oil revolution with fracking and all of the different technologies that are coming about with the oil, I think that certainly we don't have the same motive that we used to have. We used to have a real motive. We --


Financial motive.

We did. That's a much smaller motive right now because we have a lot of oil. In fact, we're sitting probably on the largest -- between us and Canada, I think we probably have the largest in the world. So I really feel if we're helping them, and if we want to help them -- and it's something that probably we should do despite what you said. And certainly we've been doing it for a long time.

The Saudis blew up the why are they such good buddies  ??

17 of th 19 were Saudis....along with OBL....

We need NOTHING from the Saudi's...

We got along just fine without the Middle East.. till the end of WW2....

OIL is not the problem.. Everyone knows what the 'problem" is.....

Trump is smart enough to not mention that problem and stays away from it.. politically...

What's the problem?

The Saudi's are our Masters.  Same with the Europeans.  Russia and China are following their own drum beat, and bow to no one.
