Saudi Arabia totally collapsed economically due to Rand Paul's isolationist middle east policy. After he allowed the United States to become energy independent through new domestic policy, he stopped buying oil from Saudi Arabia, resulting in the economic collapse. Saudi Arabia, a U.S. ally, was substantially weakened and left open to Indian invasion. This left the Middle East totally devoid of U.S. influence, with Israel as its sole defender from Islamic extremism. Zionism began to grow worldwide as a result of this. India invaded Saudi Arabia and conquered it within days, adding it to its growing territory.
