So, to be blunt, if a country is going to be ruled by a brutal regime then the world's usually a better place if it's a brutal regime that supports the United States than a brutal regime that opposes the United States.
The Saudis are a brutal regime supported by the US and Iran is a brutal regime supported by Russia. On that score it is clear that the US has backed the worse regime.
