|Re: Iran Warns US on Retaliation as It Denies Role in Saudi Attack|
US intel has evidence that the attacks originated from Iran. If the US doesn't retaliate on behalf of Saudi Arabia, then Russian diplomatic efforts with Saudi Arabia would be able to use that lack of action on the part of the US as an angle in their attempts to steer Saudi Arabia away from the United States. The Russians would be able to present the idea that the US is not as willing as they(the Russians) are to directly confront the enemies of its allies. The Russians can point to its efforts with Syria as proof that such intervention is a part of their foreign policy. With Russia courting Saudi Arabia diplomatically, Saudi Arabia ends up having a lot of clout and leverage, which puts the US in a precarious position. The US will not be able to allow Russia to demonstrate that they are more willing than the United States to cater to the whims of its allies. Russia could easily sever ties with Iran in exchange for close ties with Saudi Arabia. a prospect that would change the current order of the world. Offering the Saudis its missile defense system could be Russia's first step in doing just that.
