Speaking of … What the fuck is going on in Saudia Arabia with two princes dead in the last 24 hours and nearly a dozen princes, and several other former and current officials arrested including one of the richest people in the world, Alwaleed bin Talal. Not to mention the Lebanese PM resigning in Saudi Arabia. http://21stcenturywire.com/2017/11/06/s ... ddle-east/
Crown Prince Mohammad is consolidating his position, prior to succeeding his father, King Salman, who is now 85 and won't be likely to be around too much longer.
When Mohammad becomes king, he'll be the first one in years not to be already pretty ancient when he takes the throne (he's currently 35). Given that Mohammad is likely to be on the throne for a long time, the view seems to be that he's getting rid of enemies and clearing out corrupt officials in good time.
