Show me the MONEY in the Middle East

We have all heard this phrase from
time to time but have you ever really
wondered just how much money these
dictators and royal families in the
Middle East are really worth?
Here's ya some number crunching
for your perusement.

Tunisia's Ben Ali worth $5 Billion

Egypt's Mubarek worth $40 Billion

United Arab Emirate's Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan worth $23 Billion

Qater's Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani worth $2 Billion

Libya's Gadhaffi worth $20 Billion

Yemen's Al-Saleh worth $50 Billion

Saudi Arabia's Royal Family worth $1+ TRILLION

Some even believe the Saudi Royals have so much
money that it is impossible to count it all.

But some think the Saudi Royals have a kind
heart to it's people because of it's new
$37 Billion handout welfare program. But
do you really know where that Saudi Welfare
handout is going???

To the extended Saudi Royal family

The most common mechanism for distributing Saudi Arabia's
wealth to the royal family is the formal, budgeted system of
monthly stipends that members of the Al Saud family receive,
according to the cable. Managed by the Ministry of Finance's
"Office of Decisions and Rules," which acts like a kind of
welfare office for Saudi royalty, the royal stipends
ran from about $800 a month for "the lowliest
member of the most remote branch of the family" to
$200,000-$270,000 a month for one of the surviving sons
of Abdul-Aziz Ibn Saud, the founder of modern Saudi Arabia.

Grandchildren received around $27,000 a month, "according to
one contact familiar with the stipends" system, the cable says.
Great-grandchildren received about $13,000 and great-great-
grandchildren $8,000 a month.

"Bonus payments are available for marriage and palace building,"
according to the cable, which estimates that the system cost the
country, which had an annual budget of $40 billion at the time,
some $2 billion a year.

This is one of the reasons why there is a global
economic crisis. When the rich elites horde all
the wealth and do not interject it back into
the economy, the wealthy get more wealthy and the
poor and middle class become poorer.

So just who benefits from Saudi Arabia's
Welfare handout program other than the
Saudi Royal family? Absolutely nobody.

This is the reason why you have demonstrations
and protests in the streets. Normal folks do
not have basic necessities and jobs and
education. This crisis follows no country's
borders. It trickles down to the entire world.
Islamic Revolutions are not just for freedoms
and rights but about the elites hording the
wealth from everybody else.

When these dictators fall, where does their
wealth go? And will it be redistributed
to the people whom were robbed to get it?

If you do a google search, you will find
that every single one of these dictators
that fell had their assets frozen and/or
confiscated by banks in Switzerland.

And most are being investigated by their own
countries for fraud, embezzlement and money
laundering. Basically they are criminals
holding public office.

How long will it take for this type of
financial cleansing to make it's way to
the shores of America? That all depends
on you.

Well, that's kind of a silly thing.
In the US the "True" rulers already have this set up.
There is only 1 way to fix this problem truly, make a list and cross off every name.

a lot of folks here at ATS think the Queen of England
is like some sort of overseer of the world's elites.

But in reality the Queen is only worth $600 Million
which is less than 1/100 of the riches the Middle
East has.

because if they pulled out their investments in the US, and stopped the flow of oil, our civilization would grind to a halt.

then that makes the US a slave to the
Middle East dictators doesn't it ???

It also makes this not only an Islamic Revolution
but an American Revolution as well.

good work throwing that all together. It is really sickening to think that the U.S. props these guys up, until they are no longer useful, that is. Also sickening is the staggering amount of money these jerks have piled up. I knew about the Sauds and I'd heard that Mubarek had a lot of money, but geez...
So it's obvious that the oil magnates have a tight grip on America's balls and are squeezing out all of the cash they can. How can we stop this, if they've got a stranglehold on us, preventing the development of alternative fuel technologies, and the NWO has a chokehold on all parties? Even if we cut ties with foreign oil powers, wouldn't the NWO just shove the next exploitative technology that everyone "must have" down our throats?

Oil, obviously.

Also remember that every US president and nearly ever member of the government is a member of an apocalyptic death cult that demands that Israel exist to serve as Jesus' personal landing pad / slaughterhouse.

That said, pinning hte global economy problems on some Arab nutballs is ludicrous - their money is actually gained via trade in an actual resource for the most part (and when that resource runs out, their money becomes pretty much useless). The real problem is there on Wall Street. From Wall Street, you can destroy an entire coultry by getting a few friends to bet against that nation's currency. Ask Jamaica or Angola about that.
