“The US and Israel closely embrace Saudi usurper”

What’s going in in Saudi Arabia? I wondered. So I googled it, and I want to share some of my findings:

“Trump Says Saudi Elites Caught In Anti-Corruption Probe Were ‘Milking’ Kingdom For Years.”

This is just nonsense from Trump.

Corruption is and has been everywhere in Saudi Arabia. How else could it be with all the countless billions changing hands in a fairly closed society?

So, it is easy for a guy like the new Crown Prince to glance around and conveniently find some corruption among people he wants to discredit anyway.

It may go beyond merely discrediting them to having hundreds of billions seized by the Crown Prince. Not a bad day’s work.

What is going on is a kind of coup against the old order by the new usurper Crown Prince. His recent appointment was by a King well known for his senility, and it suddenly and surprisingly upset the established order of succession and all kinds of extended family compacts.

usa__israel_and_saudi_arabia_by_lemerchant-d9h3xjbWe likely will never know what truly happened in this secretive kingdom. But we do know the abrupt changes created lots of enemies who needed attending to, and that seems to be what is happening.

And the enemies have no friends in Washington to whom they can appeal. The old order in Saudi Arabia suffered terribly in the wake of 9/11, and despite great efforts to pacify the US with new levels of cooperation, it is now being swept out.

Now, whatever is considered good for a hyper-aggressive United States is coincidentally good for its de facto colony in the Middle East.

  1. My understanding is that Saudi Arabia is in deep trouble economically due to the recent drop in oil prices. Their oil fields are beginning to be tapped out – in part because they have flushed them with water to stimulate production levels. So they are facing increased costs of production coupled with lower oil revenues and a need to rapidly diversify their economy. There is still no income tax in Saudi Arabia so I reckon this asset seizure was necessary to keep the government ticking over. They have been steadily selling off US treasury bonds for nearly 2 years now – but they can’t do this too fast because it hurts the value of the dollar and they don’t want to risk the CIA coming in and destabilizing their government: http://marketrealist.com/2016/10/saudi-arabias-bond-sale-impacts-investment-us-treasury-bonds/
