Saudi Revolution Watch - Jane Says Exodus Coming

According to this Pakistani news site Jane's Intelligence Digest says "that the steady exodus of expatriate workers from Saudi Arabia is set to gather pace in the coming weeks."

Maybe Jane's has been reading Rant Wraith.

Jane’s Intelligence Digest (JID), in its latest report, has drawn "significant parallels between the current situation in Saudi Arabia and the final months of the Shah of Iran before his flight into exile."

"The collapse of authority tends to be the end result of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Once there is the perception that the old regime is doomed, it is usually a matter of time before it actually collapses. We saw precisely this sequence of events in Iran in 1979."
