Holy Shit: Palace Revolution in Saudi Arabia

As an alleged Houthi Missile was shot down over Saudi Arabia, King Salman and Crown Price Mohammed removed several figures, from the Army to the Navy.

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.

They also arrested Saudi Billionaire and Trump Hater, Prince al-Waleed bin Talal,on corruption charges, along with several other ministers and former ministers.
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.

WOW. History in the making folks. And it was all waiting for a President that could backstop them during their reforms, who wasn't a Political Islamicist Sympathizer or Neoliberal, but a man of business.

Trumpcucks embracing Moderate Islam


LOL. Trumpcucks are embracing another authoritarian regime. Nothing new here really.

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.

As crazy as it may seem, Iran is actually the far more progressive state/counter.

Looks 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.

There won't be any actual elimination of fundamentalist wahhabism either. The radical imans hold a lot of power in KSA and around the world. They aren't going to be giving it up.

This guy, Mohammad Bin Sultan - MBS, makes a perfect puppet. The Middle East is not ready for any form of democracy, using them as puppets is the only way to control them.
Divide and conquer always works.

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.


I find this hard to believe. Why would the Crown Prince MBS, hire Americans to interrogate and torture? I'm sure the Saudis could find their own citizens to do the same thing. They would be able to maintain secrecy too. Nevertheless, I don't care what happens to those spoilt rotten billionaires. It's all stolen money that rightfully belongs to the people. A day will come when the Crown Prince will be overthrown, and he too will face the same punishment. In the meantime I fully support him.

Are you trying to provoke me into hating the Saudis? I already hate them. Not because they are Saudis, because they practice a rotten religion that is nothing but trouble.
The next 50 years will see the collapse of Islam. And it will be the Saudis who will do the most damage to Islam. All thanks to our new best friend, MBS the Prince of Arabia.

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.


The whole population of Saudi is basically on oil welfare. Technology is replacing crude oil with renewable energy. When the oil checks stop coming, and they will stop coming quicker than most people believe, what will the Saudis do? They are not very bright, extremely lazy, and have no natural talents. We can't educate them, nor can we quickly civilize them. They will resort to violence, and that is when we will have the greatest terrorism problem ever. Our only choice is to control them through puppets like the Crown Prince MBS.

Their investments with a population doubling every 25 years won't last long. They are already facing a huge deficit, and have started tapping into their investments.
They are no different than the lottery winners who squander their winnings in a few short years.

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.

Like Rome, Islam was not created in a day. Like Rome, Islam will eventually be destroyed.
Unlike Rome, which was destroyed by the barbarians, Islam will be destroyed by the civilized.

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.

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. Nor can he stop the flow of money to terrorists in a country where the government controls every financial transaction? How does that work?.

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. MBS could be an atheist in the closet. I pray to Allah that he is. :)
