    MBS "encouraged" Vladmir Putin's military intervention in Syria in September 2015, which enraged then CIA chief John Brennan.

    From Taxi's Platosguns blog:

    "There are saudi reports that yesterday, the saudi National Guard surrounded the saudi city of Neom where MbS is living (and building), blocking all entrances to the city, disallowing any vehicles from entering or exiting, with the support of a handful of US military helicopters. MbS himself is reported to be on the move inside the new city, from one lush palace to another, petrified of an assassination attempt on his life.

    Clashes between the saudi National Guard and armed militias controlled by MbS ensued and ended with the National Guard gaining the upper hand and surrounding most of MbS’s palaces in Neom. There are no reports of MbS getting injured in the fiery clashes. The tensions continue in Neom.

    Worth mentioning here too that three days ago, MbS send messages to all international corporations based in Dubai to immediately move their businesses to Neom, and when these corporations refused (out of fear of MbS’s psychotic behavior), MbS issued a decree that bans all Saudi companies from doing business deals with any company that does not have its headquarters in Neom. This move not only angered and alienated his Emirati bff, MbZ, but also outraged the international business community. The fucker is an expert at making enemies wot?

    We can safely say that right now, MbS has not a single life-jacket.… Furthermore, there is breaking news right now that an American medical team, guarded by American military forces, have bypassed MbS’s orders and and have this morning entered the palace where al Nayef is under house-arrest: to give him medical treatments (he was denied doctors throughout his one year imprisonment by MbS), and to prepare him for take-over from MbS.

    I think it's not true .

    The National Guard is safe since they removed it's minister Mitab bin abdallah in 2017 . All guys there now are loyal to the king and MbS .

    Well I could certainly understand them looking to Russia for air defence... that is just an obvious Russian strength.

    But in the longer term I think Saudi Arabia might realise that the US just wants to buy oil and gas from them and have them buy everything they need from the US to get that money back, they have no interest in SA developing or growing as a country, which suits US producers and exporters, but might not be so good for SA especially when the oil and gas starts running out... and more importantly as demands for fuel shifts to cleaner materials.

    You don't have to look far to see what could happen to Saudi Arabia if the US gets upset with them of course... Iran and Venezuela are oil rich but poor countries because of US economic warfare and sanctions because they don't do as they are told.

    The Russians do have a few medium sized landing ships that do look interesting, but I would think air defence and perhaps new light 5th gen fighters would be more interesting to them...
