I think we should see them as 'Kilkenny Cats' and disengage until they all perform the friendly office on each other.  The best we can hope is to provide a secure ring for the show.

We need it, in vast quantities, as do our allies in Europe. So long as we are dependent on Middle Eastern oil, we are mired in the blowback from Middle Eastern politics.
