Saudi Government ousts dozens of officials and princes in anti-corruption operation
According to reports coming out of Saudi Arabia, a new committee has been set up by royal decree headed by the kingdom's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, commonly known lately as the driving force behind the country's prospective modernisation, including calls for a national adoption of a more moderate Islam, and pushing through women being allowed to drive, among other things.

Them stated purpose of the committee is to decrease corruption across the nation.

To that end, several dozen officials have been ousted, detained, and replaced on the order of Prince Mohammed, including 11 other Saudi princes, sitting ministers, and key members of various national defence agencies.

According to the BBC, no charges have been released, but their analysts suggest this is a move by the crown prince to secure power.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

In other words, plus ca change. He's just going about the age-old business of princes with a more modern veneer to keep the bloody Western nations' noses out of it.

Smart.

I started reading all this stuff about a more modern Islam and thought "how nice". Then I kept reading.

Or is it a preemptive strike (counter-coup) because he's been fucking up the wars (Syria and Yemen) and the oil price is low so the other internal powers have been a-bitchin' and a-moanin'.

Hi-jacking the Lebanese PM was an unexpected move though.
