Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah has announced increased benefits for his citizens (…): there will be extra funds for housing, studying abroad and social security, according to state television.
Saudi television reported that Bahrain’s King Hamad was also flying into Riyadh on Wednesday.
It looks like even the fattest of the fat cats is now getting fearful that the revolutionary tsunami might reach him: just imagine what Abdullah is thinking while watching the developments in Libya!
Frankly, I am not sure that what happened in Egypt is really ‘regime change’, but what is taking place in Libya is, I think, the real thing. The USraelian Empire had (and still has!) extremely powerful levers to influence the events in Egypt, but much less so in Libya, hence the possibly dramatically different outcome. Either way, I am absolutely amazed, baffled and totally caught off-guard about the power and scope of the Arab revolutionary tsunami which is taking place and having seen Mubarak fall and now watching the Gaddafi regime probably collapse, I begin to wonder: could it really be that the abominable House of Saud to finally go where it deserves to go: the trash heaps of history?
