BECAUSE our long term "lead from behind" international style, has all but lost us any confidence the Middle East leadership ever had in the good old USA.
We are now as close to an all out, blood and guts conflagration, as we have been in decades; Israel is most probably on a steady-state highest DEFCON, with the IAF and Israeli Navy [woefully underestimated] on continuous patrols, and the Israeli intelligence satellites operating 24/7. The Saudis have pretty much indicated, they are not going to let Iran run roughshod all over the territory, and their military actions in and around Yemen, have signaled clearly to Ayatollah Khamenei, he needs to back off, and it is no secret the Saudis have been in "secret" discussions with the Israelis. [a miracle!?]
The feces are about to hit the fan. Stand by for some hard and fast necessary military action.
