Storyboard Text

  • Today I will be teaching you about how the Cold War impacted Saudi Arabia
  • First off, U.S. companies were responsible for most of Saudi Arabia's oil at the time.
  • This was because the U.S. needed something in return for protecting them from Soviet influence
  • They started OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries)
  • This was an attempt to knock out competition, including the USSR
  • They also embargoed oil going to the U.S.
  • They did this because America was working with Israel, who the Saudis were feuding with.
  • Because of their bond with the U.S., Saudi government officials and businessmen have big stakes in U.S. companies.
  • Due to the U.S.-Saudi Arabia alliance, they are the main destination for U.S. arms.
