WASHINGTON “” Behind a faÃ§ade of control, the ruling family of Saudi Arabia is in tough shape and teetering on the brink of collapse, a victim of its own corruption and a violent Islamic insurgency at its door, some U.S. experts warn.
“It is a pretty fragile royal family, it’s pretty corrupt and it’s sitting on some pretty weak legs,” S. Enders Winbush, director of the Center for Future Security Strategies with the Hudson Institute, told FOXNews.com.
“The question is, can it do enough soon enough to put off what I suspect will be the inevitable “” that at some point it will come apart,” he said.
“Anyone who knows anything about the area knows it’s not a question of “˜if,’ but of “˜when,'” said Bill Lind, a military analyst with the Free Congress Foundation. “We need to delay it as much as possible “¦ and think of what to do when it does happen.”
Indeed. For it would be easy for an Osama clone to come to power there. Saudi Arabia has been an inconsistent ally at best, but that would make matters even worse.
