The End of Saudi Arabia?

A more detestable regime than Saudi Arabia could not be found. Arguably the most repressive regime on earth. An absolute monarchy. A Wahhabist theocratic nightmare that arms ISIS. Only North Korea may be worse, and North Korea does not put women in burqas or have any areas where female genital mutilation (FGM) is practiced. It is a close call. At least North Korea does not ban alcohol.

Make no mistake about it: Shi’a Iran, as bad as it is, is nowhere near as oppressive as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

    That’s because Iran has a Persian civilization dating back millenia. SA doesn’t.

    Saudi is like Dumpsterstan with mountains of money run by half crazed idiots.
    With the full crazies sharpening their knives and wrecking stuff while waiting for their chance to take over.

    What is much more frightening is the small increase in economic activity in response to all the cheap oil on hand worldwide.

    Who cares? We’re scolded all the time it’s not our problem. Ok, it’s not our problem. May they rape kill and eat each other to the last one standing.

    With Iran ramping up production now that sanctions have been lifted, the price will stay low for the forseeable future until the world’s bad actors feel the pain.

    Israel right now buys most of its oil from the Kurds and Azerbaijan.

    And Israel has its own offshore energy coming online in the nearish future.
