In case anyone wondered why Saudi Arabia has been a long-time US ally in a region that mostly does not like the USA. Amazing what a small thing like sending a couple medical teams can accomplish.

Yet, it is better we sent soldiers, not doctors, to deal with Bin Laden.

Agreed, the family of Saud knows they need support in order to maintain control of Saudi Arabia given that their sect is the minority.

Look at what happened in Yemen, the oil dried up, there was no or little re-investment of the revenue, inefficient markets and everything went to hell in a hand basket.
