Panic in the Saudi Kingdom

In recent weeks, significant news continue to come from the most "democratic" country of the Middle East - Saudi Arabia. First, news agencies around the world reported that Saudi Arabian crown prince Naif al-Saud died in Geneva. The prince was, no less a few, 78 years old. It would seem that such an age should itself say that man is not eternal. However, the death of Naif, Crown Prince, stirred Saudi Arabia. And the excitement didn’t sweep around at all for Saudi nationals who had the “honor” not so long ago to get acquainted with the methods of suppressing any unrest using government armored vehicles. Agitated Saudi political elite, led by 87-year-old King Abdullah Al Saud. The fact is that certain hopes were communicated to Naif on the continuation of the course of the current monarch, but since the crown prince ordered to live long, it was necessary to urgently look for another prince who could change Abdullah on his throne. A long search could not wait, and a couple of days after the death of Naif Abdullah announced that henceforth Salman bin Abdulaziz was appointed the new crown prince of Saudi Arabia.

Prince Salman is King Abdullah's 76-year-old. Also, as they say, far from a boy, but because the overbearing elite of Saudi Arabia is obviously experiencing a serious crisis. The fact is that the kingdom today is trying to position itself as a state that has the power to impose a “democratic” order in the world, although there is not even the smell of the very real democracy in Saudi Arabia itself. But it’s one thing to try to solve the problems of foreign countries and quite another to try to restore order in your country, where after the funeral of Prince Naif you can expect a new beginning of Shiite unrest, which will obviously be supported by Iran.

Obviously, King Abdullah worried about the situation and hurried to issue a decree to bring the Saudi army into full combat readiness. Saudi Special Forces units expect possible mass unrest in the country, and therefore are ready to once again go to the defense of "internal democracy" when it is headed by one very large democrat.

It would seem that the introduction of the actual state of emergency should have brought the situation to a normal course, but then a number of Arab media published data that can be described as having the potential of a bomb ready to explode at any moment. According to data from the Arab news agencies, Saudi King Abdullah, after all the troubles of the last time, associated with the death of Naif and possible unrest in the country, was hospitalized and is now in a coma. There is unconfirmed information that the 87-year-old king will no longer be able to return to state affairs, because the doctors of the clinic stated that the aged monarch had stopped active brain activity. It is reported that Abdullah was urgently sent for treatment in Morocco, where he had already undergone a therapeutic course. Immediately there is information that Abdullah stayed on the territory of the country and was placed in a military hospital of the Saudi capital.

In general, the situation remains confusing, and it is completely incomprehensible at the moment whether the authorities of the kingdom are silent about the possibility of the monarch’s near (or even already accomplished) death, or whether the opposition Arab media are pouring oil on the fire that is about to break out in Saudi Arabia. . At least, there is precisely confirmed information from the attending physician, William Roger, that King Abdullah’s 1 brain in July did not respond to electromagnetic impulses. And then - complete silence from the attending physicians, and from the official authorities, which is like a real Mkhatovskaya pause, after which the action can move to the culmination phase.
For natural reasons, the situation in Riyadh in the absence of the state leader on the throne, and even if there are reports of his worst physical condition, is tense to the limit. In the royal palace, an almost open struggle began for the throne, which is far from being the youngest Crown Prince Salman and could not hold back.

In this regard, it is extremely interesting to observe the position of the West regarding the events in Saudi Arabia. After all, today this apparently totalitarian state is almost a direct ally of the United States. And, despite the fact that 4 a year ago, one of the American magazines called Abdullah a bloody dictator, the activities of this dictator were on hand to the Americans. Recently, Saudi troops have been used more than once to advance the "democratic will" of the West to North Africa and the Middle East. That is why Saudi Arabia in recent years can be called an even more active supporter of NATO policy than many of those countries that directly belong to the alliance itself. And we should not forget that Saudi Arabia is the most important world exporter of oil, a serious percentage of which goes straight to the United States. Losing a partner who is ready to share raw materials with Washington’s loyalty, and giving soldiers to perform certain operations, is simply not strategically advantageous for the United States. What is there is not profitable - like death. By the way, after all, almost 4% increase in the price of a barrel of oil on world markets, which was recorded last week, is directly related to the Saudi events.
It turns out that if the news that King Abdullah doesn’t return to power activities is confirmed, then the Americans themselves will have to take the bull by the horns and support the person who will continue to send the policies started by Abdullah Al Saud on the throne of Saudi Arabia.

However, at the same time, Shiite forces may exert their pressure, which may also be strengthened by Iran. In such a situation, it is very important whether the change of power in Saudi Arabia takes place painlessly and according to all existing traditions, or the hereditary princes themselves start a game that can lead the country to chaos. Although in this case, to be honest, the country which itself has recently wreaked havoc where it could (including in the North Caucasus), can hardly be truly sorry.
It is worth expecting that the democratic assistants from Washington will still help the Saudi princes not to fight and at the same time subdue the Shiite population, who is demanding a change. And if they do not have time to help, then the Saudi bomb will be much more impressive than all those that the world has seen in recent years.

      The Americans cannot once fly into the continent and say it’s time to build a der mo-cra-tia here. HE NEEDS AN ALLY.

      The Middle East one of the first allies became the Saudis. Then Israel, then Dubai, Qatar, Iran, AFTER THE EXCHANGE OF THE SHAH OF IRAN, they hid in Iraq, and made Saddam a loser. And then they sold Saddam. Kuwait is a new ally, then Jordan. All. The problem is solved. There remained Syria and Iran, and we can say the Arabian Peninsula in the hands of the pen-do-owls.

        Spec Ops: The Line
        Spec Ops: The Line by genre is a lively third-person shooter with a shelter system, distribution of orders to team-mates and rushing from one box to another. The narrative is given to the captain of the American Army Martin Walker, who is sent to the once luxurious city of Dubai. It ceased to be luxurious because of the powerful sandstorms that made it simply unsuitable for life. Because of which, all residents of the city were quickly evacuated. From now on, Dubai has become a home for looters and bandits.

        Plus, somewhere in its vicinity is disgraced Colonel John Conrad, founder of the Delta special squad. During the evacuation of people, for some reason, he did not obey the command of the command and, instead of returning to America, remained in Dubai. Since then, not a single radiogram has come from him ... And then suddenly a weak signal comes from the Konrad detachment. Army officials immediately send a warrior detachment to find out what happened to such an exemplary commander as Konrad.

          immensely happy for them. extremely. only in Qatar, mostly guest workers work in the oil field, while indigenous Qatar people, suffering from obesity, "work" as managers, design engineers and other representatives of the creative class. how Qatar helps everyone - this is also perfectly illustrated by the example of the same Libya, and now Syria. I dare to remind you that the most "truthful" reports about the assault on Tripoli were filmed by the Qatari Aljazira, and about a third of those storming the city from the sea were hired by the Qatari monarchy. and after all, the Qataris have settled well in Benghazi in the oil fields.
          now in Syria, terrorists from eastern Libya, the SA and other countries of the victorious democracy, under the guise of peaceful protesters and the "objective" cover of the aljazirs, are slaughtering the civilian population at the same rate as in Libya. only Assad turned out to be stronger. although it is clear that he will not resist, most likely. but keeps himself surprisingly well done.
          So, taking into account the volume and direction of Qatar's assistance to its distant neighbors, I strongly doubt that someone will help Qatar when the neighbors get to it. Despite the decent size, the base of the main democratizers, the largest fleet of civilian aircraft, the largest tanker fleet and the richest traditions of fishing and pearl mining.

              from the photo - somehow I doubt that that Arab in the photo is a representative of Christianity. on the other hand, the fact that a person is a representative of Christianity does not automatically make him a lamb of God. in the end, the Christian soldiers of the Wehrmacht, NATO and the United States quite allow themselves things that simply do not fit into Christian morality. and Orthodox Georgians, too, were noted in the Caucasus.

      Saudi Arabia and Qatar are ideally suited for practicing orange technology.

      Dumb snickering population, monarchist absolutism, lack of basic rights .....

    The Saudis are sitting on the same oil, but the oil is not endless; there are calculations that in 10 years they simply will not have oil for export, maybe they will even have to import, it just asks for what money?

    And the population is growing rapidly and oil consumption is also high, Russia with a 150 mil population spends 2,5 mil barrels per day and the Saudis with 30 mil spend 2,6 mil barrels both produce 10 mil barrels per day.

    For this reason, the United States cannot do with Russia what they did with the USSR in the 80s; there is a desire; well, there are no opportunities. The Saudis exhausted their reserves; they would have to maintain their production level.

    Therefore, now the Suadists are fighting not for life but for death.

    If in the coming years they do not expand and capture additional sources of hydrocarbons, their state and people will simply die of hunger and thirst.

    And then there is Iran near by whose territory it is not a desert but a territory rich in water, where it is one of the youngest populations in the world, a country that in the near future will go beyond 100 mil of the population, a state that poorly poorly tries to industrialize, and which is already for ideological reasons enemy Suadovtsy who also has their own hydrocarbons that does not need so much to import food.

    If the Saudis in the near future do not ditch Iran, then later it will ditch them.

    Therefore, now from the side of the Saudis and their whims such fuss reigns around Iran and Syria

    The king is 87 years old, crown prince 76. Is there not a hereditary monarchy?

    :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) Are you kidding? They have more oil than ours.
    and they’ll run out of oil no sooner than 50 years later. MINIMUM!

    They would also spend more if the standard of living were the same as in Saudi Arabia. And the population would increase in Russia, if not for the standard of living. How do people feed themselves and support their families when salaries are ridiculous, meager pensions ????

    Therefore, the United States can not crank with Russia what they did with the USSR

    If earlier they were looking for a traitor in the person of Gorbachev, now they are looking for presidents who will not love Russia. What they do very well.

    Open Google and write in the search or in Yandex, the oil supply of Saudi Arabia and Russia.

    In short, you are not in the subject dear.

      I am absolutely in the subject. That you are not in the subject.

      They have been pumping oil from the same oil fields for 60 years now, and they are drawing their own reserves which they want more precisely, what the American owners will tell them so that the prices on the exchanges do not fly up.

      Saudi Arabia is not Russia, there all the deposits are explored and located in a small territory, in Russia there are many oil provinces and there are territories that simply are not developed and they are not protected in the general balance, for example, eastern Siberia and the shelf.

      Moreover, the estimate of the volume of oil and gas reserves in Russia is classified.

      But the Saudis now have little water and there will be even less and oil is running out.

      The standard of living in Saudi Arabia is not much higher than in Russia it is not necessary to confuse Saudi Arabia with the United Arab Emirates or Qatar, and salaries and pensions in Russia are not at all ridiculous, especially when compared with colleagues in the CIS or Eastern Europe, hydrocarbons are simply wasted more in CA, they have no nuclear power plants, no hydropower, no coal-fired power plants; they burn oil.

      Why, after all, it is necessary to refuel air conditioners at bus stops and sea water should also be cleaned from salt.

      If earlier they were looking for a traitor in the person of Gorbachev, now they are looking for presidents who will not love Russia. What they do very well.

      Well, yes, they set Gorbachev of course, but they also need high oil prices. Yes, you are clearly a person in the subject and you know how to look into people who love and who do not like Russia.

        in general, in my opinion, a very big bubble is being inflated about oil. Back in Soviet times, in the 60s, if my memory serves me, a theory was put forward about the abiogenic origin of oil, which implies the restoration of places of origin after a period of so-called "hibernation". There was more than one case when an oil field in the USSR was allowed to "lie down" for 10 years, and then they started pumping oil from there again. smile

        This is 100% true hydrocarbon deposits in Russia, I do not know by hearsay about the re-conservation of previously explored reserves! That's just the infrastructure in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug and Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, next to the remaining gigantic deposits, it’s a taiga and a swamp through which you can only ride through the winter road in winter! Although the time will come and the Russian people will lead trails there and establish an infrastructure and give new jobs to Russia, and again the strings of shift workers from all over the CIS will reach for a long ruble!

      imperialist pretty much in the subject. Saudi fields are first locally located, secondly they are over 50 years old, and thirdly, production has declined more than once. they have to intensify production from the fields by pumping process fluid. this, by the way, reduces the profitability of the well. and secondly, it reduces the well life.
      at the same time, Russia has access to several scattered across a large territory and belonging to different layers. plus new ones are opening. so the SA will soon be left with an empty desert.

          the funny thing is that until 2001, CA deposits were in concession and under external management. and in the beginning / middle of 2001 they were transferred to the Saudis proper with an estimate of the balances. and about 3 months later, on September 11th. Personally, I was very fucked up by such a coincidence.

          and yes, they take the concession deposits in Libya. Syria is needed only as a territory for transportation.

    Oh-oh-oh, until the king dies and shouts: "Long live the king!" there will be no big war in the Middle East, the main sponsor is dying, I wish Assad to finish off the weakening saboteurs. Qatar is a Saudi mongrel, it doesn't decide anything. I'm afraid that events with a downed phantom, an excellent reason for an attack, will disappear in the tuna. Bashaaar hold on!

    In such a situation, it is very important whether the change of power in Saudi Arabia occurs painlessly and in accordance with all existing traditions, or whether the Crown Princes themselves start a game that can lead the country to chaos. Although, in this case, to be honest, a country that itself has recently wreaked havoc wherever it could (including in the North Caucasus) can hardly be sincerely sorry.

    Not at all sorry !!!

      And indeed! Russian folk sayings contain many wisdom, the current situation in Saudi Arabia is "For what we fought for, we ran into it".
      And the change of leader never painlessly passed - they didn’t have a tandem)!
