Skip to comments.Are Saudi dissidents preparing to overthrow the king?

Its an allegation almost too surreal to be real.
In a claim reminiscent of the most elaborate Middle East conspiracy theories known to date, a reliable source in the beleaguered Yemeni government has told the Yemeni news site Al Watan that a group of Saudi dissidents are secretly being trained by separatist Yemeni rebels in military warfare and covert communications so as to overthrow the Saudi king.
Analysts, however, think the source is a government official trying to disseminate false information to turn the Saudi government against the separatists in southern Yemen.
Why would the Saudi government support a separatist movement in southern Yemen in the first place? Well, the source claims, because Saudi Arabia is taking revenge on the Yemeni government over their failure to curb a separate rebellion that spilled over Yemens northern border into Saudi Arabia late last year.

what ever happens - do not send in US troops...
I guess since the Iranians have gone nuclear - might as well have the Wahabbis take control of a major oil reserve...maybe then well rely on our OWN resources in the US and cut ties with the M.E. once and for all - it would make a great “proving ground” for new ordanance!
We are selling them all kinds of armaments.
mussies killing mussies salute!
Obama will stop ‘em. He likes that Saudi king so much he damn near gave the monarch a royal BJ while bowing to him.
If they had nukes they'd kill each other.
Let’s be real honest here.
The Saudi “King” is a king because at one time in the past his kin had a larger backing and bigger army.
King my ass.
Saudi Royal family simply a bunch of spioled fools living off the gub mint teet.
So give 'em some.
And let the Wahabi's take over? A recipe for a very large war.
No, dissidents are not about to overthrow the Saudi king.
They do not want to even get caught thinking that OR Chop Chop Square Friday after Noon prayer.
No appeals, NO life in Jail, Just Neck in the street!
I’d sort of like to see Iran and Saudi Arabia get to it and take each other out.
Course obammy would probably try to get us in on it somehow.
Yes, we should have stayed out of the first Gulf War. These people are not our allies.
Sounds good to me. Radical community organizing muslims destabilizing radical elitist muslims. What’s not to like about chaos in their POS collectives?
Not so sure about that. Yes, they’ll keep each other occupied, but their history is to make war on everybody else too.
“Yes, we should have stayed out of the first Gulf War. These people are not our allies.”
We were asked to help and got paid for it! the second Gulf War we had a nincompoop lead us into it BTW we could have made that pay us back also but we chose the Islamic pandering route instead.
The deal is the Wahabis are already in charge and have been for a long time. The Saudi royal family is not differentiated from the Wahabi leadership elite.
All same thing GI.
If this happens who is Obammy going to bow to?
Seriously, if jihadists get control of the oil in the Middle East there is guarenteed to be a big war.
“Saudi Royal family simply a bunch of spioled fools living off the gub mint teet.
All ‘kings’ throughout history have been installed in a similar fashion.
I detest Saudi Arabia as they are an enemy. The people seeking to overthrow the king are much much worse.
I agree with everrything you say,
I just would like to see the entire mid east go at each other and kill themselves.
Sunni against Shia, to the death.
Can’t disagree with that plan.
I mowed the front and side with the tractor and thought some more about my reply some more.
This saudi “king” is a back stabbing p.o.s. who is playing the U.S. like a fiddle.
Most here do not think they are our enemies, they are as are the Pakisrtanis.
If a more radical p.o.s. there takes over at least things will be clarified.
Sort of like the fools in Iran. We KNOW they are our enemy.
We just haven’t the balls to nuke them like they truely deserve.
Perhaps they’ll kill each other off so we don’t have to worry about it.
