Re: Putin offers to sell Saudis S-400 missiles to bolster defenses
That makes this situation all the more disconcerting. If the Saudis accept Russia's offer, will the US rebuke Saudi Arabia the way they did Turkey after Turkey bought the Russian Missiles? There is a push to remove Turkey from NATO because of that. I think the Saudis have more clout in terms of its independent decision making, however, there is no way the US would not express a significant measure of disappointment should the Saudis accept Russia's assistance. Russia has been courting Saudi Arabia for years and is probably the biggest threat to the United States in terms of the US's status in the world in relation to other nations. Russia's ultimate goal is to lure Saudi Arabia away from both the United States and the US dollar.
