On a pike

Here we go!:  "Huge fires at Saudi Aramco oil facilities after alleged drone attacks (VIDEOS)".

MbS has gotten away with so many stupid, stupid things - the attack on Yemen (with this the inevitable conclusion, though I'm guessing they will blame it on Iran), continued increasing tensions with the much, much more powerful Iran (and not 'reading the room' that this is not a good long-term play and everybody else knows it), spending money the country doesn't have hand over fist, the big pivot to Zionism (the conclusion of which is Bibi's announcement of the final stealing from the Palestinians), the arresting and torturing of a lot of the other 'worthies' in the country, and the live dismemberment of Khashoggi - well, you have to figure that the King has made his decision and will forgive anything and everything, even at the expense of his own reputation and the entire country.

On the other hand, I expect to see the head of MbS on a pike within 24 hours after the death of the old and sick King.

Added - note the 'normal flare' response!
