Hegemony or Survival: Well, Saudi Arabia is fighting a proxy war with Iran in Yemen. They should expect to be attacked. What the Saudi Government is doing, with our blessing, is committing genocide. Tens of thousands of children have starved to death in Yemen, when the Saudi's blockaded them. We are complicit in all of this. Whose military hardware do you think they use? Whose Intel do you think they use? Ours. We back them in Yemen. We talk about human rights, and then we support other countries committing atrocities against one another, like when we supported Saddam Hussein during the 1980's Iran-Iraq war. Iraq even used chemical weapons against them, but it didn't matter to the US because Iran was the enemy that needed to be defeated. Then we end up with 2 Iraq wars. It was the CIA that ousted a democratically elected President in Iran in the 1950's, and put the Shah in power. Would you like that, if someone had done that to your country? I thought not. Gee, I wonder why the Iranians don't like us very much, especially after we backed out of nuclear agreement with them that was done buy the UN, an agreement that Trump Intel officials admitted they were abiding by (including the head of the CIA). We dropped more bombs on Vietnam, than were dropped during all of WW 2. We used a lot of napalm too. That is a chemical which caused long term health issues, like cancer and birth defects, and also burned people alive. Around 2 million civilians were killed. If you think the US has some kind of moral authority, then you are living in a perpetual dream world. 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia. What did Bush do? Invited the Saudi King to the US, and held hands with him in a sign of unity. The portion on Saudi Arabia from the 9/11 report remains almost completely blacked out. Those are what you call facts; facts that most people just ignore and go with the status quo instead, and not able to look at things from an objective viewpoint, instead they prefer a completely subjective one. US foreign policy is the definition of hypocrisy.
