Why weird? He’s was born and lived his early life in Saudi and his family’s business is in Saudi.

He and his family have long been accused by their (Shi’a) opposition as puppets of Riyadh.

There was apparently a plot to kill him in Lebanon (nothing new for Lebanese PMs!) - it’s not unusual for Sunni Lebanese politicians to go into exile in KSA.

He is a dual Saudi/Lebanese national although almost certainly told to resign. The money comes from Saudi construction contracts, he was Lebanese PM out of a sense of civic duty. If the Saudis think having him there does more to protect Hizbollah than control it he will go.

Beyond the consensus view in the press, which seems pretty accurate, my take is that this is all or nothing for MBS. Either it works and we get a very different more positive KSA, or he fails which is worrying for everyone. My contacts in Saudi are more optimistic than I am.

Not when they are puppets of another nation state. Try not to be so condescending with your posts, there really was no need for the ‘not brain surgery’ comment.

Icy - I wouldn't worry about it. Maz's knowledge of middle eastern politics is unlikely to be perfect and why should it.

Though he does leave himself open to criticism because he spends an incredible amount of time posting very frequently on every thread possible whether he has a perspective on the situation or not.

Are you this site's biggest expert on the subject, as you are the self-proclaimed expert on Ireland?

I very much doubt it. I spent some time working with the ANB.

And I have no interest in hearing your lies to justify the claim.

"I spent some time working with ANB" therefore you're an expert on KSA. Brilliant.
