    A lot of people don't like them....But if the USD is no longer the petro-dollar, Murica is in one helluva fix.

    We must have alot of them. I'm still getting crisp new 2013 dollar bills out of the ATM machine.

    Hate how the way they stick together though.

    Saddam threatened to change US dollars to Euros. SA has threatened to do the same.

    Saudi Arabia is reportedly mulling 'nuclear option' of stripping the US dollar from oil trade

    2. We have been using Saudi troops in our proxy war with Iran in Yemen for the past 5 years..

    It’s not so much about defending SA as it is Trump attempting to contrive ‘justification’ to attack Iran.

    Why are we fighting a proxy war in Yemen?
    Saudis bomb the shit out of civilians in Yemen, killing almost 100,000. they let UAE do actual fighting on the ground
