I was asked by a friend yesterday:Would Saudi join the popular unrest rebellion trend?
My answer was that I did not see it.
I do not think Saudi would stand in the streets unless of course if the streets were air conditioned. It is easier to see angry unemployed youth in hope of better futur go stand in the streets. Why would happily unemployed youth with pockets lined with stipends go against its government?
The King of Saudi is using Fabian Tactics and responding here and there to simpler demands. Again he knows that if his people felt strongly about it, they would hire some poor philippinos to stand in the streets for them.
