The U.S. Is Saudi Arabia Now

Saudi Arabia is evidently undergoing some pretty extreme housecleaning,approaching its own “Night of the Long Knives.”  It’s hard to know what to make of it (though those of us who remember Alwaleed Bin Talal’s  fatuous offer of ten million dollars just after 9/11, properly refused by Rudy Giuliani, have our own opinions of the now-arrested prince.)

Things over there seem pretty primitive and chaotic, almost tribal, replete with the image of billionaire princes forced to sleep on bare mattresses in the ballroom of the local Ritz Carlton. The Saudis have their own way of doing things.

Or do they?

    The best rule: Get out of the way.

      And get some beer and popcorn. And maybe Doritos.

    While this could be the beginning of an improvement, I prefer to wait before passing judgement.

      Don’t know if this will lead to an improvement, I smell the ugly stench of Wahabanism involved in this event.
