The Saudis are no friend to the U.S. since they helped fund 9/11 and have killed one American for sure, and possibly another. In addition they are fighting Iran over Yemen. The biggest problem would be making sure that China and Russia are on the same page with us, because there is always the possibility that they will sell to the Saudis if we do not. The point of this Bill is to send a strong message to the Saudis, that we will not arm them as long as they choose the path they are on. This message needs to be sent. Some say the Saudis are our ally in stabilizing the Middle East, but the Saudis are as much of an aggressor under its current regime as Iran.
