US May Pull Troops Out of Saudi Arabia in Retaliation for Oil Price War


WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The United States will pull its troops out of Saudi Arabia if Riyadh continues to resist doing its part in resolving the ongoing oil crisis that is negatively impacting US shale oil producers, Senator Kevin Cramer said in a statement on Wednesday.

“They pretend to be an ally, but they’re using [the novel coronavirus] COVID-19 to bankrupt America shale,” Cramer tweeted. “Let’s pull our troops out of the kingdom if they don’t stop waging war on American jobs.”

Cramer also said that the US government may use tariffs or impose an embargo on Saudi Arabia to prevent Saudi crude oil from being exported to the United States.

Cramer was joined by Senator Dan Sullivan in introducing legislation this week to remove US troops and defence systems from Saudi Arabia unless Riyadh cuts oil output in order to stabilize global energy markets and prevent further damage to the US energy companies.

Media reported that both lawmakers are expected to have a call with Saudi officials on Saturday about the situation regarding the drop in oil prices.

On 9 April, an OPEC+ video conference will be held on the possibility of a new cut in oil production to stabilize the market that will be followed by a meeting of the G20 energy ministers on energy market stability on Friday.

  1. You’d think that with a worldwide pandemic, the “empire” would pull in its horns a bit, but no, it’s the sociopathic bullying as usual. Ramp up the sanctions on Iran and Venezuela to add to the death toll from Covid-19. Make threats against the WHO, Saudi etc and whoever else is not a subservient lackey. Hijack and blatantly steal PPE destined for relief in other countries, Begin a massive propaganda war to avert blame from itself….yes the old ways die hard, but when this is all over the world will be looking very critically at America in a very different and not very benevolent light.
