IMO, based on some knowledge, the Saudi's do have tons of our arms and technology but they never took the time to learn to use them to their optimal capability. They have bought precision tactical weapons but use them like they are dumb bombs. They throw them occasionally and kill the rebels and many Yemenis in the process which only pisses off the Yemenis further.

Hijacks British ship.
which has what to do with us?

Shoots down US drone:
Trump, the bad ass, refused to do anything...this is the only direct attack on a US asset and Trump sat on his hands.

Blows us Saudi oil fields
(Assuming you meant "up" not "us") Please provide a link to the US/Saudi mutual defense treaty.

Starts enriching Uranium
They weren't enriching uranium under the the nuclear agreement...they started enriching again and at higher levels after Trump unilaterally removed us from the agreement. So you are suggesting we attack them for reacting to OUR provocation?

Proxy wars all over the Middle East etc., etc., etc..........
Which is new, how exactly?

Do we wait until they F with Israel and let them solve our problems, the Saudis have bought billions of our arms, what the hell are they doing with them, photo ops?
Isn't this what we historically do in the Middle East when we aren't attacked directly?

The standing theory is the first US blood spilled will earn a reprisal
Which is why Iran used drones to his the oil facility. It sends a message that they can inflect damage, but doesn't leave an overt trail back to Tehran.
This allows the weasels in Western Europe, Russia, China and all the Trump haters the coverage they need to support Iran.

Iran: Zarif threatens 'all-out war' in case of military strike after Saudi oil attack

Can we give a hearty round of applause to that noble, Noble prize winner Barrack Ali Bumbler Obama

Iran's foreign minister has raised the specter of "all-out war" in the event of US or Saudi military strikes and that Saudi Arabia would have to fight "to the last American soldier."

Javad Zarif told CNN that Iran hoped to avoid conflict, adding that the country was willing to talk to its regional rivals Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. But the possibility of a return to negotiations with the US, however, would not happen unless Washington provided full sanctions relief as promised under the 2015 nuclear deal, Tehran's top diplomat said.

He again denied Tehran's involvement in weekend attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities, which dramatically ratcheted up tensions in the region this week. Zarif said Yemen's Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, who claimed responsibility for the attack, have stepped up their military capabilities and are capable of conducting a sophisticated operation such as the one that knocked out half of the kingdom's energy production.

Probed further, however, Zarif was unable to provide proof that Houthis launched the drones and missiles.

"I cannot have any confidence that they did it because we just heard their statement," said Zarif. "I know that we didn't do it. I know that the Houthis made a statement that they did it."
there you have it, we maybe did it, maybe they did it, but no sanctions and trust us, even though we already broke the treaty, but trust us, no sanctions, give us money so we can speed up enrichment and refining our missile technology.

Then we send in drones and hit one of their refineries - or better, one of their ports.
And then say "wasn't us".
