Second Saudi Prince Confirmed Killed During Crackdown

Tyler Durden's picture

Following the death of Prince Mansour bin-Muqrin in a helicopter crash near the Yemen border yesterday, the Saudi Royal Court has confirmed the death of Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd - killed during a firefight as authorities attempted to arrest him.

The death has been confirmed by the Saudi royal court.

The Duran and Al-Masdar News both report that the prince died when his security contingent got into a firefight with regime gunmen attempting to make an arrest.

Prince Aziz (44) who was the youngest son of King Fahad.

The Duran's Adam Garrie points out that Prince Abdul Aziz was deeply involved in Saudi Oger Ltd, a company which until it ceased operations in the summer of this year, was owned by the Hariri family. Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri was in charge of the company until it ceased operations.

Prince Abdul Aziz’s strange and sudden death which is said to have occurred during an attempted arrest, sheds light on the theory that the clearly forced resignation of former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri had more to do with internal Saudi affairs than the Saudi attempt to bring instability to Lebanon.

The Saudi Royal family has now lost two princes in 24 hours.

As Al Jazeera notes, in this Saudi version of 'Game of Thrones', the 32-year-old Bin Salman shows that he is willing to throw the entire region into jeopardy to wear the royal gown.

His actions have already all but destroyed the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC); Yemen can no longer be referred to as a functioning state; Egypt is a ticking time bomb; and now Lebanon may erupt.

There's a lot to worry about.

With cash-strapped sandnigger royals no longer able to appease their underlings with bribes, and no longer able to export them to Europe and North America with promises of unlimited White whores, the ME has a major problem.

And I bet you thought being a Saudi Prince meant having a carefree life with every whim fulfilled from birth to death.

"authorities attempted to arrest him."


These are infighting warlord gangs ...

Looks like Saudi is the next M.E. Domino to crumble .

This is a counter coup before a coup could be launched. It appears someone wants to start a war with Iran.

Netanyahu needs a bullet in the head and Putin needs to get this message over to him, 'quit fucking around or ELSE, you slimy wart on my ring-piece'.

Saudi Arabia's a strategic pivot for the NEOCONS.

Hence, its destabilization.

In attempt to bring us all up to speed with the "comedy" currently working its way on up in SA and in the greater Middle East, I am proposing for tonights Homework we all view the documentary on Haffaz Aladeen.

Different kind of war, but I doubt they'll start a war with Iran. 

It's hard to figure out the big question here:

Cui Bono?

Clearcutt's picture

Unlike the Saudi powerpuffs, Iranians generally know how to fight.

Good point.  What indeed happens when 30 million go up against nearly 80 million?

The only difference between this and what's going on in the FUSA right now is that the Mueller / Comey / HRC / Obama / Lynch / Rosenstein / Sessions / deep state et al gang hasn't met any real resistance yet.  The only question is: when they "come for" Trump, who will his "security detail" prove to be loyal to?  WHEN that happens, what will the liberty movement do?  Start thinking about it if you haven't already, because this is where we are headed.

Allahu Akbay, baby. 

What's this, round number seven hundred and ninety two of the Cult of Booty regime change? It's always been in Islam about who the next top tough guy is going to be. Bin Salman thinks it's him. Meh.

The Hillary shit is out waaay past any universe Frank Herbert could imagine.

Probably why Hollywood can't put bums on seats - reality is far more entertaining than the shite they are spewing out these days.

The really interesting phraseology in the article was, "when his security contingent got into a firefight with regime gunmen attempting to make an arrest.

Regime gunmen?  How brutish.

If this continues, we could start a whole new class of Saudi Prince jokes.

Like "how many Saudi Princes does it take to........."

cynicalskeptic's picture

Still is.... it just seems that the time and circumstances of your death are now more uncertain - old age and natural causes becoming less likely

- And I bet you thought being a Saudi Prince meant having a carefree life with every whim fulfilled from birth to death.

Correct, but they didn't read the fine print:

Lifelong office availability limited, military backing & bribery costs may vary. Installation of puppet government fees may apply. Lifespan and whim fulfillment levels vary by kingdom.

Offer subject to change without notice. Private plane restrictions apply.

*Leadership levels exclude taxes, fees, & surcharges, those only apply to the poor.

Ownership of broadcast stations and other methods of information delivery may with withdrawn without notice."

lots of money ALWAYS, repeat, ALWAYS,  has it's own set of problems, because money is the root of all evils as I see it...never fails to bring out the worst of chaps, or sand diggers...

The LOVE of money is the root of all evil.  The lust for it.  Just like the lust for power or sex or fame or anything else...imbalance corrupts.
