Multi media reports from internal Saudi press and international press discuss the anticipated return of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah to the Kingdom. King Abdullah has been convalescing in Morocco since he departed the United States once he was able to travel after medical treatment received in November 2010.
King Abdullah, 86 years of age, made no public appearances while in Morocco. There has been little in-depth information released about his condition except short comments that he is doing fine. In a time of turmoil across the Middle East region and with whisperings of rumblings within Saudi Arabia many around the world are waiting to hear what King Abdullah is going to say when he addresses the Kingdom.
Can King Abdullah reassure the citizens of Saudi Arabia with his words to prevent eruptions and demonstrations such as those which are continuing to take place in Bahrain, Libya or Yemen (to name a few)? Will he need to put words into immediate changes of reform to maintain peace and stability in the Kingdom?
Let me end this post with two final questions. What do you think King Abdullah will say and do? What do you think King Abdullah should say and do?
