is not among your strong points, assuming you have any.

The question I asked is "Are you deluded enough to think our alliance with the Saudis is about anything but oil and money?"

History lesson follows.

Iran was an ally of the US for the reign of the Shah, whom we installed in 1952 following a CIA-led coup. Just as with Saudi Arabia, the  alliance with Iran was also about oil and money. The religious practices of the citizens of neither country were of the slightest interest to the US, nor was the fact that Shia and Sunni Muslims are hostile towards each other. We - and the rest of the Western world - had our eyes on one thing: petroleum reserves. When the Shah was overthrown in 1979 by a popular revolution, the US made the strategic mistake of offering him asylum here. Overnight, Iran transformed from an ally to an enemy.

Both regimes are controlled by murdering tyrants. They hold public beheadings, stonings, etc., they treat women and children as property, and they brutally suppress any dissent or unfriendly media coverage, much in the same way the #45 would like to do here, if he could only get away with it.

FYI, it was Saudis, not Iranians, who were responsible for the attacks of 9/11. The admin at the time quietly flew Saudi diplomats and VIPs back to their country, because they were well aware of this fact.
