US threatens Saudi Arabia with withdrawal of American army and air defense systems

The United States may withdraw from the territory of Saudi Arabia units of the American army and air defense systems if Riyadh does not agree with Moscow on stabilizing oil prices. The corresponding bill was prepared in the US Senate, according to American media, citing informed sources.

A bill envisaging the withdrawal of the US Army and air defense systems from Saudi Arabia was prepared by Republican Senators Kevin Kramer and Dan Sullivan. According to the new law, if Riyadh and Moscow do not agree to lower oil production to stabilize world oil prices, the United States will withdraw from the kingdom US Army personnel, Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems and THAAD anti-ballistic missile systems. It is emphasized that the withdrawn equipment and army units can be deployed on the territory of another country in the region.



Senators intend to conduct a telephone conversation with officials from Saudi Arabia two days after the planned meeting of OPEC +, at which Riyadh and Moscow will agree to reduce production. According to media reports, during the negotiations it is planned to discuss the stabilization of world oil markets, other details are not given.

By the way, earlier it was reported that US representatives were not invited to the OPEC + meeting, which is due to take place on April 9.

          Putin has leaked, Putin has not leaked .... Chewing this chewing gum is not the first year. And, it seems, which is easier. We were gathered here from all over Russia. So, without touching on defense enterprises, we will write where, how many new enterprises were built and the old ones were not destroyed. This refers to those that form the basis of the industrial power of the state-owned metalworking, machine and industrial engineering, chemical industry, etc. You should not be afraid to work for the CIA - I think, and so everyone knows.

            Конечно.
            After all, they fit in for themselves.

            Kevin Kramer is Sev. Dakota. The state, which due to the oil industry rose from 38th place in GRP per capita to third. And this they are likely to lose.
            Dan Sullivan is Alaska. A state in which each of its voters receives from the oil industry an annual subsidy of up to $ 3269 in "fat" years. And this year the subsidy is likely to be zero.

            The economic well-being of the United States is now tied to the economic well-being of Russia. Interconnected. Russia will be bad, and the United States will be bad. Russia will be fine and the United States will be fine. In the near future you will see everything and many will be surprised.

          Naturally .. Putin called Trump, asked to contribute .. Trump said ok. I can help as I can .. but in return for something I demanded .. That's what, we will soon find out what it is .. soon someone will merge, to the applause of the putriots ..

              The benefit of the USA lies in the fact that they control the situation with oil and have all the political and material benefits from it .. And it’s enough to compare the US economy with the Russian Federation and dependence on the sale of raw materials .. to understand who will suffer the most from this.

                And then they will say "this is all, of course, good, but we will not be stupidly re-elected for a new term." And they will be right.

                Likewise Trump. He already has huge problems with jobs, and in your opinion he must be immensely happy about their additional layoffs. And all for the sake of the mythical "control" of what cannot be controlled. For this system has been created by the Americans themselves for decades.

          In general, both for us and for the United States, the best outcome would be to jointly overwhelm the Saudis. And immediately the oil market would have become much freer, and prices would have become trump cards and shale producers would have remained intact. It is necessary for VVP Trump to propose a joint operation against the KSA under the pretext "we will avenge Khashogi and the children of Yemen." Ivanka can cry on camera if that. Again, you can remember about September 11. Well, we still have not paid off their debts for Nord Ost and Beslan.

      Along the way, the mattresses do not want to participate in the OPEC + deal, again they want to heat up the heat with the wrong hands. Tomorrow we’ll see how all this clowning will end. We are betting, gentlemen! Agree tomorrow or not?

      I bet no. It's too early to come to an agreement.

      “If they don’t take it, we’ll turn off the gas ...” the immortal “Diamond Hand” ... Blackmail, violence, threats - hysteria from the senators? If they withdraw their troops, the Houthis will enter the KSA (read Iran!) ... What are they smoking there, in the Senate?

      The Saudis were not very lucky - they did not initiate a price war on the oil market at the right time, which already collapsed due to the global economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

      Russia, in agreement with the United States, made a compromise proposal - the reduction by all players of oil production by 10 million barrels per day is proportional to production as of March 1, 2020. The Arabs are still wandering in terms of the accounting date and offer on April 1, when their market share was greater than that of other players.

      The US in response threatened the frostbitten Arabs to impose barriers on the supply of cheap native oil to America to the level of the cost of shale oil - essentially shutting down the domestic market from imports. Protectionism of the 19th century and autocracy of the 20th century in one package, of course.

      But, as Okraintsy say: "Putin will come, order is in sight." bully

      It is not the first time that the Saudis have been "frightened" with duties, or refusals to supply modern equipment, and each time everything ended with words. Obviously, this will happen this time too, but the Saudis will certainly listen to the Americans. Without such an ally, they will certainly try to settle scores dissatisfied with the policy of the SA in this region. So far, only the Houthis do not let them completely lose their scent.

      The United States may withdraw from the territory of Saudi Arabia units of the American army and air defense systems if Riyadh does not agree with Moscow on stabilizing oil prices


      I wrote about this 2 weeks ago, and then and now I think ... that in this case the KSA will have an S-400 and another military base, moreover, very quickly;
      Egypt, Pakistan, China and India with the greatest pleasure will lift their weight in the Region and, if necessary, will send help to the Saudis, and some will sell weapons to anyone, even on credit.

      I do not believe ! Saudi Arabia can also lower the Americans, below the plinth. All US power is on the global dollar, as soon as the SA refuse to sell resources for dollars ........................ it is not yet known who will suffer more

        ... in Saudi Arabia, the monarchy will become constitutional. With an American-controlled parliament and a "wedding general" king.
        More than sure, Americans hold Saudis for Coca very reliably and efficiently. And if the level of control is insufficient, the problem will be quickly resolved.

        Just for now, all these statements are primarily for domestic American use. Senators show voters "We are working". Trump shows his voters the financiers "I work"

          That's when Trump is pecking that mythical Russians helped him to get out - this is understandable, the internal theme!
          And when in the US SENATE they propose withdrawing the air defense systems from its ally, where is the internal question. First pass the law, and then play it back?
