A couple of years ago I attended seminars with Chinese and Israeli counterterrorism experts in Beijing, in my capacity as a board member of a foundation that promotes Sino-Israel relations. A senior Chinese official complained that the Saudi royal family funds every radical madrassa in Xinjiang province, where Muslim Uyghurs of Turkish ethnicity form the majority. With a long and porous border stretching through sparsely-populated lands, Chinese security couldnt prevent the funds from pouring in.
I asked our Chinese hosts why they didnt remonstrate with the Saudi government. The Chinese official said, We talk to the Saudis all the time, and they say they will have nothing to do with it. But this is not a government. It is a family! Some crazy cousin is always sending money to terrorists through informal finance channels.
Now it appears that Saudi Arabia has a government, thanks to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salmans weekend purge of the royal family. It is probably the only political event in recent memory that has the support of Washington, Moscow and Beijing, not to mention Berlin, London, Paris and Tokyo as well as Jerusalem.
The foundations for the creation of a functioning Saudi state were laid well before President Trump visited Riyadh last March. The Washington Post reported at the time: Behind the scenes, the Trump administration and Saudi Arabia have been conducting extensive negotiations, led by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

SA is responsible for 911.
Ben Shapiro did a very interesting report on this intra-family coup a day or two ago (I think it was episode 411 of his daily show).
SA or the Crazy Cousins?
Article reads......”it appears that Saudi Arabia has a government, thanks to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salmans weekend purge of the royal family.

Saudi Arabia owns the top four floors of the Mandalay Bay.
was something ELSE supposed to take place that night of the concert mass shooting..?
was the shooting intended as a diversion for something else that didn’t go off..?
Did part of a Saudi struggle for power take place in the USA..?
The Saudi “Puge” is just the completion of “Phase One”....more to follow......
In any type of fair press this would be getting huge news. This is a sea change in both foreign policy and the war on terrorism. Trump has virtually wiped out the export of terrorism. It took him only 8 months to do what no other US President tried to do. T
IMO, that is Salman in the photo. He is under protection of a pretty major force and he appears to be in disguise...making him appear a bit plumper than he actually is. Wearing a prepared vest that adds a paunch is an excellent way to disguise someone who is lean and fit.
I wonder if long periods of in-breeding as anything to do with "Crazy Cousins"?
Who paid for that?
Where were they manufactured?
The whole Whabbist Shebang.
How will we tell the difference? :)
That is one screwed up place and I don’t expect the new king to have the life expectancy of a housefly.
This scenario makes far more sense than any media reports so far.
Well, I don’t know if all that’s true, but it’s the best story I’ve read all week.
Here is his photo when he was in DC.
So, the reports of Paddock’s efforts to set up at other music venues is chaff?
Great they got their first real government. In 200 years maybe they’ll have the level of corruption in their government that we have in ours.....
