Saudi Arabia, UAE leaders not returning Biden's calls, disappointed with US - report
The two Mideast countries are disappointed with the Iran nuclear deal, as well as the American response to Houthi terrorist attacks in recent weeks.

The leaders of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have been declining calls from US President Joe Biden for several weeks, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, citing officials in the Middle East and the United States. The messages of dissatisfaction sent by Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) and Emirati Shiekh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan come as the two leaders share concerns over the American response to recent missile and drone strikes from Yemen, claimed by the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.

The two nations are also reportedly disappointed with the state of negotiations in the ever-nearing Iran nuclear deal, according to the WSJ. The deal, which IAEA chief Rafael Grossi called "very complex," does not account for Saudi and Emirati security interests, they claimed. The US has been pushing to repair its relations with the two nations as it looks to stifle an oil crisis. Biden announced a ban on Russian oil imports on Tuesday as gas prices reach all-time highs globally.

I don't blame them. I wouldn't answer his phone calls either. All he is going to do is lie to them and they know it. Biden is a joke and everyone knows it.

Biden is just one big disappointment. His whole political career was a joke. Sadly, his personal life is a joke as well.

Biden is a joke. his son Hunter is a joke. His marriage is a joke after stealing another man's wife. Being a joke is all Biden knows. :ohno

The US can't be trusted by anyone anymore. Taiwan better realize this. No matter what Blinders may have promised them, he won't do squat. Japan is probably aware of this and should be doing all they can defensively to prepare for a belligerent and a more emboldened China. Beijing hasn't forgotten about the atrocities committed on them by Japan during WWII and won't forgive them for those. The red dragon wants to be the power in that region and have made threats to its neighbors and even to Australia.

As far as the UAE and Saudi Arabia are concerned, they should be extremely concerned about how the US is trying to help Iran acquire nuke capability. They need to do all they can to enable Israel to do what they will be required to do when the time comes to attack those nuke sites in Iran. That should include opening up their airspace and maybe even use of their airfields covertly to ensure an easier path to affect a positive outcome.

The whole administration is a joke. We got doofus and doofette trying to portray strength to the world. Cue the Laurel and Hardy theme song.

Japan is doing something. They are developing a 7th generation fighter that is (word has it) much better than our F22!

That's a start. But they may have to go more drastic than that. I know that most are wary of seeing Japan get militaristic again - because of their past - but China could be a lethal foe to them in the near future.

It is a disgrace to have the president and vice president that are in office. He is a weak person does not care about We The People! I am waiting for the November elections to see how that turns out. Hopefully, the Republicans will get the House and Senate back. It would be great to get Pelosi out as Speaker of the House.

Israel is more at risk than Taiwan. The US has really turned on them since the election.

Like a posted in another thread Japan is currently developing a 7th generation fighter jet that is a step above the US F-22. I don't think that Japan really needs much of a navy if they have a good air force.

Humerous video out of late night tv show host Trevor Noah (comedian) covering this topic of no answer from Saudi amd UAE. Even though he pushes left wing content most of the time he was pretty sure that this would never happen with Trump in office. (Worth a watch)

Biden did something to slow or stop the work on Israel's pipeline to Europe before all this war on the Ukraine began. It got buried in the news cycles but I haven't forgotten it.

Nor have I forgotten that he stopped the pipeline for Canadian Oil to come south into the US. Keystone. He hasn't been calling the Alberta premier or less importantly Trudeau to open it up again.

Yeah, I'm over here keeping score a bit.
