Poor Saudi Arabia. Their arch-rival, Iran, has been allowed back into the global economy after fourty-odd years of Draconian sanctions; their invasion of Yemen has been a total disaster (not including all the bombed hospitals), and their moderate rebels in Syria are being pummeled by Russian airstrikes.

Where’s the love? Oh, here’s John Kerry, with some merriment and cheer:

We have as solid a relationship, as clear an alliance and as strong a friendship with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia as we have ever had, and nothing has changed because we worked to eliminate a nuclear weapon with a country in the region,” he said, referring to the Iran nuclear deal.

Yes. It was a great day for head-choppers all over the world, especially for Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, who was quick to remind Kerry and foreign reporters why Saudi Arabia is a desert of self-delusional sadness:

Iran remains the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism,” Jubeir said.

“Overall I think the United States is very aware of the danger of Iran’s mischief and nefarious activities… I don’t believe the United States is under any illusion as to what type of government Iran is.”

Maybe. The US is certainly not under any illusions as to what type of government Saudi Arabia is — but that’s not stopping them from selling billions of dollars worth of weapons to Riyadh. Why would it?
