I could have sworn that Prince Dopey was a 17 BILLION dollar man just before the ascent to power of the rightful heir to The Kingdom recently, but it appears that after just a short stay at the Riyadh Ritz his fortune has already been cut in half.
Yet despite recent unconfirmed reports that Saudi royalty and billionaires were being strung up by their feet and beaten by Blackwater guys, by all accounts they were just more than happy to stop meddling in American elections for Hillary and Iran and the Russians, and have now gotten behind the effort to send the Iranians back to the proper side of the Gulf out of sheer patriotic goodwill.
The Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh continues to be the nicest jail in the world for Prince Dopey and the 50 Thieves, the Saudi royals and dignitaries who were arrested earlier this month by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s anti-corruption committee against those engaging in high treason.
The group of detainees includes military officials, government ministers, and no less than 11 princes — including Prince Alwaleed bin Talal whose fortune after a week or so of incarceration is estimated at a mere 10 BILLION. Oh well, at least he still makes the Forbes Top Ten.
His close accomplices Bakr Bin Laden, Saleh Kamal and Waleed al-Ibrahim, each man a billionaire many times over, have closely followed Prince Dopey going up, and are presently incarcerated with him.
Since the first week of November, some 201 people have been taken into custody by Saudi authorities in a sweep that investigators say has uncovered at least $100 billion in corruption, but most of them never made it to the Ritz. The crackdown that began on November 4 initially targeted 11 princes, 38 officials, military officers and business leaders. An estimated 1700 bank accounts have been frozen.
The Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman has by all accounts been a model of restraint so far, as he urges his brethren to make their peace with God. Most in the Kingdom seem to welcome efforts to fight rampant corruption and abuse of power, and to remove the Iranian scourge from its nests in Yemen and Qatar, from where they have been launching rockets and terror attacks upon the Saudis with impunity.
Those days are over now, and the Saudi military is ready and willing to rain unlimited death and destruction upon the Iranian aggressor, and send them back to their own side of the Arabian Gulf, with the full support and encouragement of President Trump and the might and glory of the US military behind them.
ISIS has already lost their Caliphate, and the Ayatollah is up next. If he isn’t careful, he’ll get more revolution than he ever wished for. Nobody has forgotten the Marines who died in Lebanon in the 1980s either, and not all bombs are delivered are trucks, just so you know Tehran.
