    (1) KSA does not have monopoly over Oil.

    (2) There is oversupply in market. Only country that would get anally raped due to sanctions is KSA as others would be glad to fill in its space to improve their flagging revenue. Also, OPEC could not cut supplies because renewable energy sources and Shale have become competitive, and any sharp increase in price would lead to oil substitution at a faster rate than now, and reopen marginal Shale fields.

    (3) Arabs are solely dependent on Oil revenue to finance their budget

    (4) India is a big consumer, and there is no one in the world which could pick up Indian demand.

    (5)Arch weasel Trump okayed selling of F-15Q to Qatar, day before yesterday; Same number as that of Rafales that we have contracted from France, but at 25% higher price than what we have paid for Rafales (which included India specific upgrades and cost of setting up two bases). So your assertion that even USA is not going against KSA is fundamentally wrong.

    All countries are not equal/Pakistan. KSA would have to eat this L.

    You still not answered the question, why are you running away?

    I ask again, why imposing embargo on India only? When South Korea, Japan, UK, still buying gas from Qatar.

    Do the KSA have any personal grudges against India? If you have any personal grudges against India , that is your problem. That you have to work it on.

    But as nation, do KSA have any problem with India?

    Since when has KSA been a monopoly supplier? They are only an important supplier, nothing else.

    @Guynextdoor

    KSA does not have a monopoly on India's crude oil market, only 15-20% and it fluctuates quite a bit. But Qatar has a monopoly on India's gas market, they supply 80% of our needs.

    @Guynextdoor - India supporting terrorists again.;)*

    :rolleyes: (Is the sort of thing you would say to me, if the UK did something similar or much less.)

    *Not serious, just in case you hadn't guessed.

    Wahhabi better than Salafist? Hmmm... tough call. I'm going with 6 of 1 and half a dozen of the other.
