Arab regimes often act toward the US like a jealous and possessive boyfriend. Like, they want exclusive and sole attention, and throw a fit if they feel the US is not giving them the attention that they need and deserve. For example, Saudi media today has been fretting about the Iranian-US meeting in Iraq: and they make a point to mention the US naval maneuvers in the Gulf, perhaps to reassure themselves. In fact, the only reason why America's clients in the region are in conflict is due to the competition between them for US affection and attention. Like Saudi conflict with Jordan, Jordan conflict with Qatar, Egypt conflict Saudi Arabia, etc.
