Saudi Arabia executes 134 as crucifixions rise - with 3 children at risk of death
Barbaric crucifixions are on the rise in Saudi Arabia with 134 people executed already this year.

A death penalty watchdog has revealed 'alarming' rise in state executions in the country - including crucifixions.


A report claims more than 130 people have been executed this year already - with at least 24 more at "imminent" risk of execution, including three children.

The skyrocketing number reportedly included at least six teens executed this year for "crimes" they were accused of carrying out as children.

Yeah the interwebz will be twitterpated. But I'm sure our POTUS will wait for an intelligence briefing and consult with his senior staff, then make a public statement outlining a forceful yet measured response.

I'd like to hear Mo's opinion of the Aramco IPO.

(FWIW: No way I'd have anything to do with an IPO where 98% of the stock remains in the hands of the offering party, even if it wasn't the House of Saud.)

It’s a massive loss of face for the Saudis. But once they got in, It was inevitable. Either they would have to agree to the required disclosure to be publicly listed on the prestige exchanges or they go the path they went.

Problem is that disclosure would have been embarrassing for them and it doesn’t matter if they’re listing 0.1% or 100% on the NYSE, the disclosure is the same. Even to list in Saudi they had to strong arm a bunch of locals that they previously imprisoned to be able to hit their desired price. Couldn’t have happened to a better bunch. [emoji48]

My big question is whether the guys sentenced to death for Jamal Kashoggi's murder a) actually exist, and b) actually committed any crimes or are just randos off the street. Either way, there's no reason to think that the guys who actually killed him are on the hook for it.
The country's public prosecutor said its investigation found that Khashoggi's killing was not premeditated.

Isn't the story that they just wanted to poison him a little bit and overshot the dosage. Then they were all "Fuck us, what are we going to do with this body" when a redheaded mobster strolled in all "You're always going to have problems, lifting a body in one piece..."

Or, they could be some 'inconvenient' people that the House of Saud wanted to off anyways and they figured they'd make it a twofer.

Yeah, but would MBS order a Saudi living in America working for an American newspaper to be brutally murdered in Turkey and not use the trial to off some extra folks what need killin'?

Khashogi could've died more quietly, but as it happened, it sent a much clearer message. Doing it in style isn't for the opportunity to kill, but the opportunity for everyone to see who was killed and how. I mean, there are far more effective ways to off a guy than polonium if all you want is the guy dead, but polonium communicates while it kills.

Yeah, it communicates that the victim was killed by some state actors who think they're living in the Cold War or some Bond movie.

As to the larger question, I'd be happy to see the entire House of Saud swallowed up by a long dormant giant sand worm, but it seems as though throughout the Arab world you either get autocratic stability or endless chaos and 'civil' war.
