    And while announcing the Crown Prince, next in line, they announced the Deputy Crown Prince who is second in line. From what I recall, was not done previously and this is the move to a younger generation???

    BBC News - Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz dies

    Saudi King Abdullah dies aged 91
    Breaking news
    BBC


    Apparently to be succeeded by Aziz.
    Oil price and other issues.
    A religious dictator who has the blood of innocent children on his hands has died. Sadly due to his title many governments will send to representatives but this man is not that deserving of receiving such high honor.

    Saudi Arabia is one of the biggest supporters of extremists Muslim mosques and terrorists. Hopefully this will lead to more freedom and less oppression but I doubt that this is going to happen at this moment in time.

    Because change takes time. More women in the workforce- more women sent overseas for education. It all has a ripple effect.

    That may be so but's it's reality. Not long ago in this country blacks had no rights and women couldn't even vote. These things don't change overnight.

    Well then it comes to Saudi Arabia it is an understatment that changes are going slow. That after 40 years people can still get 10 years in prison and whipped 1 000 times for offending Islam. That after 40 years of close ties too USA they could maybee get down to 50 lasher or maybee even be soo "progressive" that you only get 10 years in prison for "offending Islam" without lashes. But for you still wanting to defend the country you can point to the fact that the goverment is so "noble" that you only get 50 lashes at a time and if you get too injured they can increase the time between the lashes.
