Gulf states aren't wrecked like the rest of Arab middle east because of American backing. Gulfies go to America and Europe for education not the other way around. Have you seen Saudis speaking Chinese or English? Their lifestyle depends on wooing Westerners. FIFA granted the world cup to Qatar. These organisations are creations of the West. $500 billion NEOM project is unachievable and worthless without Westerners. MBS dreams about being the New Europe.KSA picked up oil production to cover the production loss of those countries. In the early 2000's, Germany and the west still had cheap Russian energy. Japan wasn't 2 steps from a massive currency/sovereign debt crisis. Rest of the world didn't consume as much as today. USA, EU, and UK weren't engaged in massive money printing.
Economic conditions are far different today. USA is better off biting its lip and remaining quiet.
