King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz has sacked prince Moteib Bin Abdullah, Minister of the National Guard from his post on Saturday through a Royal order.Prince Khalid bin Ayyaf has been appointed as minister for the National Guard.A second Royal Order was issued to relieve Minister of Economy and Planning, Adel al-Faqieh, from his duties, and the appointment of Mohammed Al Tuwaijri as Minister of Economy and Planning.
LONDON — Saudi Arabia announced the arrest on Saturday night of the prominent billionaire investor Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, plus at least 10 other princes, four ministers and tens of former ministers.The announcement of the arrests was made over Al Arabiya, the Saudi-owned satellite network whose broadcasts are officially approved.The sweeping campaign of arrests appears to be the latest move to consolidate the power of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the favorite son and top adviser of King Salman.The king had decreed the creation of a powerful new anticorruption committee, headed by the crown prince, only hours before the committee ordered the arrests.Al Arabiya said that the anticorruption committee has the right to investigate, arrest, ban from travel or freeze the assets of anyone it deems corrupt.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman
Look how far we’ve comeTrumpcucks embracing Moderate Islam
Looks like our hold on the Saudis is increasing. Nothing like destroying the mother of all terrorism from the inside.
I have a very bad feeling about the next King in the making here. Again, like Trump, I hope to be proven wrong, but I do not think the 2030 plan, or women driving, is anything but breadcrumbs. There isn't going to be a major shift toward a more egalitarian society here. I think there will, however, be new power dynamics and a much more active Saudi presence.
Strategist saysLooks like our hold on the Saudis is increasing. Nothing like destroying the mother of all terrorism from the inside."Our hold"? If you mean power is being concentrated into a single individual, who is an extremely savy politician, and ruthless enough to oust and imprison foes, to cement central rule ... is a "hold" ... surrrreeeee ... Trump is more like kitten MbS blew his nose on, comparatively.
A source reportedly told the Daily Mail that the group has since been subjected to “interrogations” carried out by “American mercenaries” brought in to work for the Crown Prince, 32, who is now the kingdom’s most powerful figure.“They are beating them, torturing them, slapping them, insulting them. They want to break them down,” the source told the site.
among them Prince Alwaleed bin Talal whose $US10 billion fortune makes him the 10th richest man on the planet.

A Saudi with intelligence? Very rare indeed.
Strategist saysA Saudi with intelligence? Very rare indeed.KSA was smart enough to fuck over America for 50 years so far. They are using your money to pay terrorists to attack us as we speak.
LOL. Trumpcucks are embracing another authoritarian regime. Nothing new here really.
Insider claims Saudi princes and billionaires ‘tortured and insulted’ following brutal crackdown. SAUDI royalty and billionaires are being strung up by their feet and beaten by American private security contractors, according to insider reports.
There is no doubt that 80 odd years of oil pumping has created a very mixed society in Saudi Arabia with indescribable wealth balanced against a struggling Saudi underclass. The young people are revolting – as everywhere, and want part of the action. The state has been increasingly paying out vast amounts to keep Saudis in the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed. The oil price collapse has driven home the fact that no country, not even Saudi, can afford to just pay its people to do nothing.
That's why they've divested in Countries all over the world.
All thanks to our new best friend, MBS the Prince of Arabia.
Our only choice is to control them through puppets like the Crown Prince MBS.
Strategist says Our only choice is to control them through puppets like the Crown Prince MBS.You guys are really funny. How many radical imans around the world have been stopped from preaching terrorism? How many radical madras (aka terrorist training schools) around the world have been shut down? How many saudi's nave been arrested for sending out money to terrorists? The answer would be zero/zilch/nada/none.
The people arrested have only 2 traits. They have big bank accounts to confiscate and they have enough power to oppose MBS. The whole thing is a power grab, nothing to do with reform of any kind. But hey keep on dreaming.
Good evening Bob. Hope you are keeping warm in ice country.
Power grab comes first if you want your own puppet in power.
How do you figure the saudi prince in power de jour is our puppet? More the other way around, trump is his puppet. The bullshit talk of reform will die the second aramco goes public and KSA aka the prince banks the money.
Let me know when some reforms that actually reign in saudi sponsored radical islam around the world happen. Not that anyone born in the 20th or 21st century is going to live long enough to see that happen.
Trump is their puppet? ha ha ha Trump does not need the Saudi regime to survive. The Saudi regime needs Trump for their survival. They need our weapons to defeat Iran. Without American weapons the Saudis would get barbecued by the Iranians.
Have patience. Let MBS become king first.

Without American weapons the Saudis would get barbecued by the Iranians.So thats why trump scrambled to make KSA his first foreign visit as president and kuscher and company have been running a commuter service over there. Because they need us Just look at how many trips the needy king has taken to see trump here. Did you ever consider making objective reality align with what you post? It's just a thought.
Strategist saysHave patience. Let MBS become king first.He had no trouble arresting and confiscating all the money from the most powerful people in the KSA. Yet he can't shut down rag bag mosques and madras schools in third world shitholes.
You want to support the people that fund and create Radical Islamic Terrorism?
errc saysYou want to support the people that fund and create Radical Islamic Terrorism?I want to support the people who are willing to destroy radical Islam.
Irrelevant, deceptive, and false. You are comparing "kuscher and company" vs the Saudi King. They are not equivalent heads of state.
Confiscating the money from all those Prince's was the right thing to do. They stole the oil money, not earned it. It belongs to the people. His actions tells us this is the guy we need to support.

If you look around the poker table and can't see the sucker then the sucker is you.
They have hundreds of Prince's. All of them looting the treasury in broad daylight.
Strategist saysThey have hundreds of Prince's. All of them looting the treasury in broad daylight. Of which MBS is top of the list of looters. Do you think he paid for his 425 million euro yacht with grocery store redemption stamps? You, trump, and two scoops getting played big time.
At least trump is going to put a shitload of money in his pocket. What are the patnet twins getting?
