Saudi Arabia's military is actually a large police force, quite incapable of defending the Kingdom. When Iraq attacked Kuwait, Saudi's shivered in their boots. U.S. Forces stationed in Saudi Arabia & Kuwiat would have to come to Saudi defense. If push came to shove, the International Community would prove itself as worthless as it has in Iran. Nobody listens, knowing it's all a bluff. If & when Israel would have to resort to Nukes, there would be no permissions required from anyone, including the U.S. A Saudi-Egyptian-Syrian-Iranian alliance and attack would mean the end of civiliation in the area for a least the next one hundred years. Keep in mind, there will NEVER be another Holocaust. NEVER AGAIN!!! You may LOVE OIL, you'll just love the smell as it burns and the plumes of black smoke indicating where the well and refineries once were.
