Recently 11 Saudi princes, 4 ministers, and several ex-ministers have been arrested as part of a US-backed counter-corruption campaign by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. Do you believe this is about fighting corruption or consolidating power?

They aren't his brothers in the sense that they have different parents. I'm not sure what their exact genealogical connection is, but it's probably some form of being a cousin.

Just a little preview of what Trump dreams about when he goes to bed at night.

The corruption purge also arrested many of the nation's wealthiest citizens, whether it be Prince Alwaleed bin Talal or non-royals like media mogul Waleed al-Ibrahim or construction magnate Bakr bin Laden (who is Osama bin Laden's brother).
Former Crown Prince and longtime counterterrorism ally Mohammad bin Nayef has also reportedly been under house arrest since he was stripped of power this summer. Mohammad bin Nayef's son, Prince Mansour bin Muqrin, died during the arrests when his helicopter allegedly crashed near the border with Yemen, where Saudi Arabia has led an active military coalition against the Houthi (Ansar Allah) rebels since 2015.

And what about that Prince killed in the helicopter? There is a huge deal going down in Saudi. Scary.

The helicopter crash is reportedly an accident and there's currently no evidence to indicate otherwise, although the timing is conspicuous.

No, it's not. This is just part of a longstanding plan to eventually attack Iran.

You mean by Saudi? They want to attack Iran? Why?

Iran is one of the last few countries not controlled by the central bankers and thus they have been scapegoated as an out of control terrorist nation. What we watch on TV is all scripted in order to gain public support for war against them.
