    Several Thousand princes who were hung upside down..will not let this opportunity pass. It’s that simple. Even though the national pastime is chopping heads off phillipino and Shia servants. For Matiis to give a 30 day notice..and The Salman Uncle to openly challengeMBS..in addition you have different flavors of CIA mercs..in different familes services..so look for more explosive Fireworks..War is coming to them MBS in charge or not….and where is Bandar who has the allegiance of CIA and AQ?
