Saudi Arabia is the worst of Arab world dictatorships. It’s notorious for committing some of the world’s most horrendous human rights abuses internally and cross-border.
It uses its oil wealth for pure evil, its ideological extremism only exceeded by oppressive Israeli apartheid state terror against Palestinians and America’s wars on humanity.
None of the above matters because the kingdom is a longtime strategic US ally, partnering in its imperial wars, supporting regional terrorists operating as Pentagon foot soldiers.
It opposes sovereign Iran, Israel’s main enemy, its government standing in the way of its aim for unchallenged Middle East hegemony partnered with Washington.

Since the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, oil prices have plunged by 11.92%. Just today, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) shed 4.56%. At present, WTI is trading at $66.05/bbl. That’s well below the high for the past year of $76.90. It’s also well below my forecast for the year’s end price of $75/bbl.
To shed some light on what might be driving the crude oil market, let’s use the flickering candle of the economics of production. The economic production rate for oil is determined by the following equation: P – V = MC, where P is the current market price of a barrel of oil, V is the present value of a barrel of reserves, and MC is the marginal recovery cost of a barrel of oil.
