Cautious optimism here. Not a huge fan of the price tag, but the Saudis hate ISIS about as much as we do. Getting Saudi Arabia, Russia, and the United States on the same page (at least somewhat) could lead to some serious shit.

Plus the reactionary consequences of interventionism in the ME, such as ISIS, are in part the collective fault of the Saudis. They largely bankrolled the West's anti-soviet proposal, starting either during or post-Carter.
