    Time will tell what is happening of course but it would be wonderful if it is the beginnings of a coup and civil war

    • outer_rl

      However bad their regime, I can’t celebrate the apocalypse that might follow

      • FlorianGeyer

        I would make an exception with the US/Israel,Saudi Arabia, Gulf States at the very minimum :)

        • outer_rl

          Because there’s no civil society to speak of in Saudi Arabia and the gulf states, the most likely way the government there would fall would be via a military coup. The general that takes over will be just as pro-US as the Saudi family, because he will also depend on the US to stay in power.

          Israel is somewhat different – an overthrow of their government would probably be replacing the amoral, gutless, populist racists they have now with religious/nationalist fanatics who would order the army to drive the Palestinians into Egypt and Jordan, and then invade Lebanon and Syria again.

          So I can’t be optimistic about any revolutions at the moment. No idea who would take over America in a revolution or coup.

        You might not celebrate but I and many others don’t give a sod about it as they have contributed to the deaths of tens or even hundreds of thousands of people.

      Perhaps some of the Jihadist in Syria are returning home. :D

      Could be an actual civil war, instead of a bogus one that we have been following for several years.

      Had warned about the potential of this happening in Saudi Arabia can’t imprison princes and steal their wealth. Apparently thousands of rounds fired and they said it was a drone they shot down but bin Suliman wasn’t even in Riyadh.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Yes, I watched and listened to the firefight and I somewhat doubt a drone was involved :)
