Re: How true

That's only partly true. Saudi Arabia is a tricky case because their leaders maintain control by whipping up public resentment against us while privately doing what we want them to, within limits.

So, the limitations there are both because the Saudi leadership has too much influence over ours, and because they are hampered by their own strategy for maintaining control.
