Report on February 3rd, 2018 Conference: U.S. Saudi Coalition: bringing peace or war? The five speakers at the conference had all varying points of view around the the topic of U.S./Saudi relations.

In short, one could classify the two perspectives as those struggling for liberation of the Arabian Peninsula from Saudi terror and trying to preserve and/or enhance American liberty in post-911 atmosphere of degrading Constitutional rights.
