Gulf Arab countries want security guarantees from the United States and Israel

Gulf Arab countries want security guarantees from the United States and Israel  Igor Sobotin wrote, in "Nezavisimaya Gazeta", about the Arab Gulf states' fear of Iran and Washington's impatience with the Arabs' frequent complaints.  The article stated: The Gulf states are seeking written assurances from the administration of US President Joseph Biden that would guarantee the provision of operational military support to them in the event of an escalation in the region.  Saudi Arabia and the UAE are concerned about the possibility of Iran increasing its fighting power, after restoring the “nuclear agreement” and exiting from sanctions; The Arab states are also discussing the possibility of concluding some kind of agreement with Israel, which has become a mediator between Washington and its frustrated allies in the region.  Informed Bloomberg sources spoke of Saudi Arabia and the UAE's desire to obtain written assurances from the United States.  Sources close to the US presidential administration confirmed to the "Washington Post" newspaper that the White House is running out of patience with the many complaints of allies in the Middle East, and, more than that, it has tired of responding to them.  For senior representatives of the executive branch, dissatisfaction with Arab states is common. The "Washington Post" said that the White House has practically no room for maneuver, due to the multiplicity of crises in other arenas that require a response and are under pressure from groups from the Democratic Party and other forces to take a tougher position on the Gulf states, especially Saudi Arabia.  As the former Pentagon official and current director of the Defense and Security Program at the Middle East Institute in Washington, Bilal Saab, points out, the Gulf states simply do not fully understand how the US bureaucracy operates. "Even in the context of working with our closest NATO allies, we cannot make a decision overnight to send high-level representatives and deploy military equipment to support them," he said. "And perhaps what the Gulf countries expect from the United States is very exaggerated." This is the main source of their annoyance, according to Saab.
