The Saudi Purge Is Far More Important Than It Seems. Here’s Why.
Summary by JW Williams
The ‘Saudi Purge’ began on November 4th, as a missile from Yemen was intercepted on its way to Saudi Arabia. On the same day that Lebanon’s Prime Minister Hariri resigned from office and his yet to be leave Saudi Arabia. Under the orders of the crown prince, 32-year old Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), eleven Saudi princes and hundreds of government officials have been rounded up and divested of their holdings worth $800 billion. One of the princes died trying to escape in a helicopter. The purge was preceded just a week earlier by a visit from Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
The King of Saudi Arabia is reported to be senile and appointed his son, MBS, to take over after the CIA thwarted the coup against Qatar. MBS has many enemies, including his army that is in an uproar. MBS started the disastrous war in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia claims that Lebanon declared war on them to use as an excuse to get rid of Hezbollah, a political party and military force in Lebanon. Hezbollah helped to fight ISIS and has ties with Iran. The Saudis have allied with Israel to take down Lebanon in its proxy war against Iran.
A new resistance force, Syria, Iran, China and Russia, who share a common cause, stand to benefit economically in opposing the Saudis, Israel and the US who have been stirring up trouble.
China is pursuing a stake in Saudi oil, which may usurp the US petro-dollar with gold-for-oil swaps and the Chinese petro-yuan. Economic collapse could lead to a world war with China.
