    Stay Calm, Everyone...

    I'm surprised the Saudis spend ANY money on
    defense when they have the USAF and US Navy to do their
    bidding for them. What do you think would be the price of
    a barrel of oil if the cost of maintaining an
    aircraft carrier task force, several air combat wings, and
    ground forces were factored into it?

    Anyway, I
    thought it was interesting that the Saudis keep so much
    of their assets overseas "in case they need to go
    away in a hurry..." Hmmm. Why would that be, do you
    suppose? What would cause them to think that they might
    need to hurriedly decamp at some point?
