‘Major change’: Prince Bandar Bin Sultan said the kingdom will make a “major shift” in relations with the United States.

Upset at President Barack Obama’s policies on Iran and Syria, members of Saudi Arabia’s ruling family are threatening a rift with the United States that could take the alliance between Washington and the kingdom to its lowest point in years.

Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief is vowing that the kingdom will make a ‘major shift’ in relations with the United States to protest perceived American inaction over Syria’s civil war as well as recent U.S. overtures to Iran, a source close to Saudi policy said on Tuesday.

Prince Bandar bin Sultan told European diplomats that the United States had failed to act effectively against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, was growing closer to Tehran, and had failed to back Saudi support for Bahrain when it crushed an anti-government revolt in 2011, the source said.

Even the groveling and bowing to the King won’t help. KSA gave him orders to bomb Syria and he chickened out because the Bear roared. Can someone be tried for treason just for utterly destroying America’s image and credibility ? He is doing a great job of making USA the laughing stock on the international stage. All enemies of our culture must be delighted.
