War News Updates: Is Saudi Arabia The Next Crisis?

From afar, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia appears immune from the turmoil and uncertainty engulfing nations such as Syria, Egypt and Libya. But rather than being an oasis of stability in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia is nearing its own crisis point.

The elderly sons of Saudi Arabia’s founder, King Abdul Aziz ibn Saud, who have ruled sequentially since his death in 1953, are approaching the end of the line. And as that happens, the future of this kingdom on which the world depends for oil has never been more precarious.

Oh, that’s just great.

Don’t forget, Al Qaeda’s strategic goal isn’t the destruction of the US (though they’d be very happy with that) but rather the destruction of the House of Saud. AQ sees its goal as assuming control of the holy sites in Mecca and Medina and becoming the de facto rulers of the Islamic world.

  1. I wish we could clone several million rabbits from the cave at Cair Bannon, and then drop them on the Mid East. Let the rabbits sort things out.

  2. StB, no need for rabbits. Even if the Middle East doesn’t have the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.

    How about we send NOW to educate their womenfolk as part of exporting our current culture, disallow all visas from countires that allow our embassies to be attacked, and back Isreal to the hilt.

    My prediction from 1984 (while deployed off Beruit) that we would not have peace until every Palastinian male was dead is looking better and better all the time.
