King Abduallah has reached his final resting place, no pyramids to memorialize the 90 year old Abullah. The new King, his half brother Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud, will carry on. The world is different from when Abdullah first mounted the thrown, regional enemies are biting at the Saudi border, best manifested in the Yemen President resigning office under the threat of regional Shiite insurgents.
Soon, Saudi Arabia will have to defend itself with a more intense posture because the killers have a huge appetite that includes regional hegemony. We wish the King well, not only for his sake, but ours as well. Allahu Akbar. May the King rest in peace – Long Live the King.
