Saudi Arabia antes in

Saudi Arabia says it’ll intervene in Iraq[*1] if the U.S. pulls out:

(Saudi security advisor) Nawaf Obaid, writing in The Washington Post, said the Saudi leadership was preparing to revise its Iraq policy to deal with the aftermath of a possible U.S. pullout, and is considering options including flooding the oil market to crash prices and thus limit Iran’s ability to finance Shi’ite militias in Iraq.

“To be sure, Saudi engagement in Iraq carries great risks — it could spark a regional war. So be it: The consequences of inaction are far worse,” Obaid said.

Too bad the majority of Americans didn’t think through the results of your actions when we voted in the Surrender Party.
