I think a more correct analogy is that the Saudis and their South Arabian Peninsulas cohorts have played a very good bridge round with the US as a bidding partner, but in reality the Arabs are playing spades.
The relationship is bounded by the general guns for oil deal, but absolutely the side with the guns still doesn't dictate all the terms.
Absolutely right on the button. Again, we saw the same thing here in the UK when the Saudis quietly stopped the investigation into extracurricular costs for a major defence contract.
