U.S. Spends over $100 Billion a year to protect OPEC oil Exports to China and Europe ? Why ? U.S. need it to Rebuild Infrastructure.

(edited)

How much does US spend every year to assure Mideast oil flows to China, Asia, India, Europe ? 

* Have we forgotten how OPEC (Saudi, UAE) threatened to destroy US shale 2014 ? Went after US production 1970's , 1984-1985 , 1998-1999 ?

* Have we forgotten how Saudi Arabia cut off all heavy oil shipments to US as part of recent production cuts to spite US refinery margins and US gasoline consumers ?

* Have we forgotten how Saudi Arabia threatened to abandon the petrodollar ?

* Have we forgotten how Saudi?UAE/OPEC threatened to destroy US Shale at CERRA WEEK dinner in Houston this year ?

* Have we forgotten about the $200 Billion purchase agreement Trump signed with Saudis , that we have not seen a penny ?

* Have we forgotten MBS ordered the butchering of Washington Post Journalist Khashoggi ?

Agreed.  China and Europe need to pay; or figure it out their own damn self.  

USA could easily disrupt, as assist with this trade.  Perhaps, we have been too generous with the latter..?

Failing infrastructure is a real domestic problem.  China and Europe should pay for secure shipping lanes... China especially, since they have become more adversary than, ‘true’, trading “partner”.
