              The War of the Princes has begun. Here the King did not have to remove them, maybe they are on the contrary loyal to the King and the Crown Prince. There are from 5 to 7 thousand people of royal blood, it is extremely difficult for us to understand them, who is for whom. We’ll figure it out when only one remains. laughing

        It was Poroshenko who went there only once and that’s all. That’s why 11 princes were arrested in corruption. Now they’re a tragedy. Vague doubts creep in. Is Ukraine contagious?

        She has been walking for a long time ... but has worsened after a visit to Moscow. Apparently the old man was accidentally told that there was a massacre between the princes, and maybe they touched his beloved grandson, we can only guess. But after the visit, one way or another, the king decided to restore order in the palace, so that he would die in peace ...

    Here, by the way, from Vasily Volga regarding the events within the Saudi kingdom:

    YES KGB HELLO! VASILY VOLGA
    Date of publication: November 06, 2017, 07:44

    How long have we all puzzled over the question: "Well, why did he still arrive?"

    King of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdel Aziz Al Saud. After all, an old man. Why does he need it?
    Al Saud and Vladimir Putin. It doesn’t mix even phonetically. Like oil and water. Vladimir and Al. Well, where is that good? Here Al Saud and Barack Hussein Obama - yes! That sounds. But Putin and bin Abdel-so it does not climb into any gates.
    But today. At night. Everything suddenly became clear. Everything opened suddenly. And the behavior of oil became clear, and the Russian ruble climbed up, and Walker began to change shoes right in flight. That’s what Petro Poroshenko says: “You, Petro, are a nice guy, of course, and you have worked hard for the glory of our star-striped flag, but, brother, I'm sorry, you have to implement Putin’s plan.”
    Everything became clear today, after the "Night of the Long Scimitar". Well, it turns out why he flew in. For evidence. Long live the KGB! Suddenly, after the meeting with the President of Russia, the king understood all the intricacies in his own Palace. 11 princes, 38 ministers were arrested and arrests continue at a lower level. Conspiracy. And who organized it? Well, of course! Our western partners.
    They still think that Russia is a bast, soaked with Yeltsin. Well. Let them think so. We will be less trouble.
    Vasily Volga

    If this is true, then ... what Putin in general, the head. yes

      Most likely so. There is a resemblance to a coup against Erdogan. We were told on the radio in the morning with a comment that “the catastrophe occurred amid arrests among members of the royal family as part of the fight against corruption” smile What kind of hints.
      And yet, it is entirely possible that the tearing of Saudi Arabia will be the last life raft for amers at the moment. Kneading there will be worse than the Syrian.

The episode of corruption and the arrest of supposedly 11 princes are just guesses. They were all mired, but someone decided to put protection in Moscow. But kerosene - turned out to be diesel fuel.

    Yeah, I believe, I believe. Himself fell. Especially considering the fact that the king began to purge his inner circle, he arrested many and forbade members of the royal family to use air transport. And then some kind of prince flies to sin. As I heard that you can’t fly, so with grief I dropped the board and killed myself to death. And another prince suddenly began to scoff at state security officers, so he was killed to death. Surely - also by accident.
