17. Kinda. Prince Salman basically got rid of every relative & official who opposed him.

And he took all their money, in the hundreds of billions of dollars.

11. I hate to see Democrats caring if he's overthrown or not

There are many reasons, but one should be enough: Yemen.

19. Yemen is indeed Saudi's Vietnam, complete with mass murder, war crimes and support from

America, political and tactical...all shameful and criminal and to be ignored of course as much as possible by American media...60 Minutes did a heartbreaking segment...not a whole lot else.

New Dictator same as the old in authoritarian ally Saudi.

Saudi security shoots down toy drone near royal palace -official media

RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabian security forces said they had shot down a recreational drone in the capital Riyadh on Saturday after online videos showed gunfire in the neighbourhood where royal palaces are located, sparking fears of political unrest.

The spokesman of the Riyadh police, quoted by the official Saudi News Agency (SPA), said one of the security screening points noticed the flying of an unauthorized small recreational drone at 7:50 p.m. local time (1650 GMT), leading the security men to deal with it according to their orders and instructions.

King Salman was not at his palace in Riyadh at the time, a senior Saudi official told Reuters.

“The king was at his farm in Diriya,” the official said, naming another area of the capital.

16. Just a harmless little coup attem...I mean toy drone flyover

Stability is tenuous at best in Saudi Arabia. Watch gas raise another 50 cents soon.
