The article discusses the significance of the change in the foreign policy of the U.S. toward Saudi Arabia. The policy should be obtain the cooperation of Saudi Arabia. The U.S. government should demonstrate appreciation to the Saudis' contribution to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Plans to build bases in Riyadh must be explained that it is not the intention of the U.S. to invite disaster. Denying the request of Saudi for military equipment is a step to protect the interests of the West. A strategy for taming the Saudis must be included in any energy policy.
