What the U.S. gets in return

Reader comment on item: What Riyadh Buys [in Washington]

Submitted by Rick Ragland (United States), Dec 11, 2002 at 10:39

Interesting article, but not in-depth enough to be definitive. I believe what you say, for the most part, but I also believe the same situation exists concerning countries other than Saudi Arabia, like the UK for example. But to be fair, let's really understand what the U.S. gets in return. We get plenty of cheap oil and a blind eye. And until arrangements are made with other countries concerning our oil needs, then our Saudi arrangement will just have to make do.

But please, continue to investigate and keeps us all informed. Many thanks.
