JNN 27 May 2013 Riyadh : The Zionist king of Saudi Arabia has been reported clinically dead, with vital organ failure. While it has yet to be confirmed, his time is short, and the only other heirs to the throne are old, ill, inexperienced, and the first heir may suffer from dementia.
A Saudi journalist working for London-Based Asharq Alawsat says the Saudi monarch has been clinically dead since Wednesday.
He also quoted medical sources in Saudi Arabia as saying that the king’s vital organs, including his heart, kidneys and lungs, have stopped functioning.
Doctors are said to have used a defibrillator on him several times. He is also reported to be alive with the help of a ventilator.
The Royal Court has yet to comment on the report of King’s death.
The aging Saudi monarch has not recently appeared in the public and the country’s crown prince is attending official meetings on his behalf.
It is the second time in the past months that Asharq Alawsat reports the death of King Abdullah.
In November 2012, the daily reported that Saudi king has slipped into coma and was clinically dead nearly a week after he underwent a 14-hour-long back surgery in a hospital in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.
The report was later rejected by the Royal Court.
The 89-year-old king’s health has declined over the past few years, during which he has been hospitalized several times.
Failing health, old age as well as the death of the king’s half-brothers have raised concerns about the future of the oil-rich country in the face of anti-government demonstrations
So what are the geopolitical implications of this?
It is important to note, that Saudi Arabia is arguably the world’s most important supplier of oil, and the unique and complicated Saudi succession traditions have set the stage for a crisis that could destabilize the region. With civil war in Syria, Sponsored by Saudi Arabia , and the events that have unfolded in Egypt and across the Middle East, it seems rebellion is in the air. The current heir to the throne is Crown Prince Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, also the Minister of Defense of Saudi Arabia. However, he is 77 years old, has already suffered a recent stroke and spinal surgery, and many experts agree that he is suffering from dementia.
This absolute monarchy system will make a 77 year old, ill, potentially demented man the king of Saudi Arabia, a fundamentally important cog in the global economy. So now the question is, if King Abdullah is indeed dead, and Crown Prince Salman becomes king, will he disrupt the delicate balance Saudi Arabia holds now?
And after he dies, which may not be very far off, who will be left? There is only one more person who can become king after Salman who is knowing enough to preserve Saudi Arabia’s balance, his name is Muqrin, and he is 67 years old.
The sediment to take from this is, the Saudi Absolute Monarchy system is broken, and allowing these 2 old men to become king after King Abdullah, is only a temporary solution. After they die, if they don’t already disrupt Saudi Arabia’s balance or effect the world economy and oil exports, there will be little to no knowledgable people left to be king. Revolution is in the air, and has already swept across Egypt, Libya, and Syria, surrounding Saudi Arabia, so a succession crisis could not come at a worse time.
The tangled, broken machinery of this absolute government was built to eventually be destroyed, and a crisis like this could easily spread revolution across the Middle East, and disrupt entire economic systems. So when the US government wants citizens to participate in war, murdering rebellious Middle Eastern people, or whatever it is, you can find out the true nature of the issue before you believe what they say.
With the nearly endless knowledge at the tips of our fingers, the Internet, humanity has the capacity to solve a crisis and restore order, without an all powerful monarchy or absolute dictatorship, like never before.
