I don't know what this does for the stability of the oil rich kingdom, and who will follow Abdullah as king. Many of his half-brothers are dead.

Perhaps we will see a younger man, a prince of the next generation rather than another geriatric son of Ibn Saud.

Press TV is the Pravda of the Iranian regime.

About the succession:

From Wikipedia:

“King Abdullah’s heir-apparent was his half brother Crown Prince Sultan until the latter’s death on 22 October 2011.

The title of Crown Prince then passed to Prince Sultan’s full brother, Prince Nayef until his death in Geneva, Switzerland, on 16 June 2012, while undergoing medical tests for an undisclosed ailment.

His third heir-apparent is Prince Salman who was named as Crown Prince on 18 June 2012. [69]”

Could be prince Salman gets the job....

I hope this doesn’t get messy. If we’re lucky, nobody will tell Obumbler until all the wrinkles are ironed out, and it’s too late for him to interfere.

Thanks for the heads up on Press TV. And this means...what? It can’t make factual statements?

I think everyone in the Middle East is interested and concerned over who becomes the next King of Saudi Arabia. That Iran is at odds with the Arabs and they’re using proxies to fight in Syria endangers everyone in the region. If nuclear war breaks out it will probably be in the Persian Gulf, paradoxically the flooded site of the Garden of Eden. Who the next King is could have a huge impact on the future.

They should give each Saudi prince a scimitar, bring them to a stadium, lock the gates, and whoever comes out alive becomes eligible to become King.

If there are some 7,000 princes and some 25,000 princesses and they all transit the globe, why aren’t they internationally targeted as human traffickers?

I’ll get beat up but as far as Islam goes

One could do worse

Some of these Saudi monarchs fear the nuts same as we do

And aside from their public rhetoric they will take a strong Israel over a strong Hezbollah or Hamas

Or Taliban....any day

And AL Qaeda which exists to install a new Caliphate sans House of Saud as much as anything else

Not to mention the investments umbical to the west

Just saying..

It means take any news from them with a very large grain of salt. I’ve posted articles from them, but IIRC, I add “Iranian state television” after their name.

Did you just make that up? Or did you take that from history? Because that is pretty close to what happened at one point in Andalusia when the Moors occupied Spain.

I don’t think we’ve learned enough from history. We’ll just have to let them repeat it.

He doesn’t have time to interfere. He’s busy practicing his bowing.

So now he’s qualified to be either a muslim theologian or an Obama economic advisor.

Obama will figure out a way to get the Muslim Brotherhood in charge.
