Cut them off

The whole reason the U.S. kowtows to the KSA is so that they will not use their oil wealth as a weapon against U.S. interests. If they refuse to help the U.S. economically, what is the point of continuing to help them murder Yemenis? While I don't really approve of American policies that prop up oppressive dictatorships to protect American economic interests, it is even more absurd when the oppressive dictatorships refuse to protect American economic interests. If the Saudis want to make the relationship purely transactional, then fine, make U.S. support contingent on Saudi support for U.S. policies. And certainly there is no reason to tolerate this shit.
