The new king is 79 years. So I wonder how long he will actually reign!

Ahh yeah. An individual that presides over a "kingdom" where beheadings, torture, and basic civil rights are denied. The same country where almost all of the 9-11 bombers came from and where their families still operate today. If it wasn't for his oil, and their agreement to support the petrodollar, the USA, and more importantly the completely sold out US media would be calling him a brutal dictator instead of king.

ISIS will not let this pass without notice. They will look for every opportunity to insinuate themselves into Saudi affairs, and this could very, very quickly evolve into the end times for Saudi Arabia as we know it.

Most likely outcomes:

1. US military goes in to occupy Saudi Arabia and defend access to oil.

2. Middle-east and Russia and China will form an economic bloc that will shut off oil to the west.

3. Both.

What if the new dictator demands nuclear weapons to protect itself from countries who have them?
