Letter: Let’s not protect Russia’s allies

America has been protecting Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states from invasion and pirates with our naval fleet and Air Force for decades. The Gulf states were supposedly our allies. Unfortunately, these Gulf states, including Saudi Arabia, have decided to ally with Russia when that country is invading Ukraine. They cut their exports of oil causing the price of oil to rise thus helping Russia finance its war in Ukraine.

These countries have a right to act in their own interest, but they do not have a right to expect this country to protect them when they are acting against ours. I suggest we withdraw our naval fleet and let the Saudis know it will not return as long as they choose Russia and profiteering over us and our allies.
