    Sorry bout that,



    1. The *family* owns everything.
    2. If one dies other family members are ready to step in.
    3. This kind of government is so, 6th century.:eusa_hand: Anyone else have the moral high ground to agree?
    4. Lets get these soft puffs out, and get a *new young dictator*!
    5. All these old so called kings is old hat, lets get with the times you rag heads!
    6. LINK:
    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia – The heir to the Saudi throne, Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdel Aziz Al Saud, died abroad Saturday after an illness, state TV said. The death of the 85-year-old prince opens questions about the succession in the critical, oil-rich U.S. ally.

    Sultan was the half-brother of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, who is two years older than him and has also been ailing and underwent back surgery last week.

    The most likely candidate to replace Sultan as Abdullah's successor is Prince Nayef, the powerful interior minister in charge of internal security forces. After Sultan fell ill, the king gave Nayef -- also his half-brother -- an implicit nod in 2009 by naming him second deputy prime minister, traditionally the post of the second in line to the throne.



    the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks -- in which 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia -- but he also has a reputation for close ties to the Saudi religious establishment."
