relations between United States and Saudi Arabia

The relations between United States and Saudi Arabia have tangibly soured, with US outreach to Iran and ambivalence on Syria particularly irking Saudi leaders, who believe their arch-foe, Tehran. Indeed, this is where the bulk of Saudi frustrations lies and the reason why the anger has set in so deeply. Riyadh has long known that the US could do more to stabilize the Middle East if it wanted to. It is Washington’s preference for weak policy positions on issues that are of critical importance to Saudi Arabia that has left the al-Sauds scratching their heads as to what is going on.
