  • Islamic Hamoud/Getty ImagesLast month, OPEC+ members decided to cut oil production by 2 million barrels per day.

  • However, Congress should nonetheless move to reassess US-Saudi cooperation in light of Saudi Arabia’s actions.

  • The Pentagon’s soaring budget reflects this impulse, an urge to spend our way back to supremacy, as opposed to the Beltway’s knee-jerk reaction to the end of American global dominance, which has generally been a desire to recreate the circumstances under which other countries acceded to US preferences.

  • Even while the US military expenditure is already much higher than that of the following nine nations combined and significantly higher than it was during the height of the Cold War, nations like Saudi Arabia are acting more and more in opposition to US interests.

  • The Biden administration would be wise to impose real consequences for Saudi actions on oil prices and the war in Yemen as part of a new, more pragmatic approach to foreign policy by cutting off all military support and arms exports until Riyadh reins in its destructive behavior, most importantly by ending US complicity in Saudi military intervention in Yemen.
