Apocalpyse Now: Saudi Arabia

10 Mar

THE FOLLOWING IS A HYPOTHETICAL SCENARIO BASED ON CURRENT AND POSSIBLE FUTURE EVENTS

March 11th, 2011: “Day of Rage” – Saudi Arabia

Following normal Friday prayers, mosques empty and the streets begin to fill. The much-anticipated “day of rage” in Saudi Arabia has arrived. The Saudi Royal family and their security forces anxiously wait to see the number of citizens who will participate. Saudi law strictly prohibits public protests, be they peaceful or otherwise. Saudi police and riot forces surround each city, armed with lethal and non-lethal weapons. The royal family eagerly hopes the efforts they have made to reach out to their subjects will keep the protest size to a minimum. The royals have offered cash payments to citizens, suggested they may allow women to drive, and they have also made clear that no protests will be tolerated. The moment of truth is here.

March 11th, 2011: New York City

On the previous day of  March 10th, the NYSE tumbled over 200 points after word leaked of Saudi police firing on protestors in preliminary gatherings. Oil traders and speculators placed bets on oil reaching $200 per barrel. The prices of gold and silver and other commodities rose, while other sectors were caught in the sell off.  Markets across the globe are on hairpin alert for the first sign of trouble. The NYSE opens down 100 points based on early reporting from the kingdom of police dispersing tear gas on protestors.

March 11th, 2011: Saudi Arabia

 Protestors gather in all the major cities of Saudi Arabia in numbers larger than the royal family had hoped for. Saudi riot police stand in formation as protestors chant in front of them. Agitators among the crowd begin to throw rocks towards the riot police and set fire to dumpsters. Tear gas canisters are deployed in the areas where agitators are known to be, and anxiety begins to rise among the protestors. Protest organizers and foreign agents of influence place groups in strategic locations in the capital of Riyadh. They begin to gather protestors towards these central locations. All international media is shut down as is internet and cell phone coverage. The Saudi royal family orders the police to “put down” the protests before they become worse. Rubber bullets are fired into the crowds and more tear gas is used. The protestors refuse to budge and barricade themselves with dumpsters and storefront property on the streets.

March 11th, 2011: New York City

By noon, the stock market is down 200 points. Oil is quickly rising, as are gold and silver. Panic can be felt among the traders.

March 11th, 2011: Washington, DC

President Obama receives a call from the Saudi Royal family to inform him that live ammunition will now be deployed. The President calls an emergency meeting of his security advisors. The White House press secretary makes a brief statement declaring that the President is well-informed of all situations and will make a statement concerning Libya shortly. No mention is made of Saudi Arabia.

March 11th, 2011: Bahrain, Home of the United States Navy 7th Fleet

Protestors fill the streets of Bahrain in solidarity with their Shia protestors across the bridge in Saudi Arabia. The naval base is placed on high alert and begins to move critical assets quietly from the region.

March 11th, 2011: Saudi Arabia

Protest size continues to increase. The police deploy non-lethal sound weapons on the largest crowds as well as rubber bullets. The protestors remain defiant. Rumors circulate of injuries and even deaths among the protestors. Agitators stoke the flames of the masses calling for revenge on the “royal donkeys.”  With more frequency, the protestors engage the riot police and the police respond with brutal force. Live fire is now heard in the streets of Riyadh.

March 11th, 2011: New York City

Reporters inside Saudi Arabia manage to get the message out of the brutal crackdown now taking place. At 3:00 pm, the NYSE is down 400 points. Oil continues to rise.

July 11th, 2011: United States of America

The price of gas, when it can be found, is $10 regular unleaded. The NYSE rests currently at 6,000, losing half its value in 4 months. The economy has crashed into severe recession. Honest officials say depression. Civil unrest can be found in every major city of America. Out of control prices, coupled with labor strife have lit the nation on fire. Citizens fight other citizens. Heavy pressure is on President Obama to allow wide open drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, and to begin immediate exploration in all known oil fields. The governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain and Jordan have all fallen. Oil production is allowed to continue, but at much reduced rates as the world is unsure who to deal with and who owns control. Civil unrest in Iran is now at an all-time high, and the regime is using all means possible to squash the revolt. Meanwhile, the Republican Guard has deployed missiles in strategic locations, including Syria and Lebanon, as Israel is on extreme alert. The United States Navy deploys 2 carrier groups in the Gulf to protect what little oil is still moving out. Russia and China refuse any further sanctions on Iran and strongly suggest the US and Israel do not use military force.

August 11th, 2011:  The Middle East

The first missile is launched. World War III has now gone hot.

(SPECIAL NOTE: This is merely a hypothetical scenario, but the danger we currently face can not be understated. In fact, this scenario is most likely too gentle if events in Saudi Arabia spiral out of control as they possibly could. However, many good people are in place doing everything they can to prevent such a drastic scenario. Have hope and always pray for your nation and all of God’s creation)

    Wow! You need to write a fictional book on this!

      Well let’s hope it IS just fiction. Big day for the world tomorrow. Let’s pray it is quiet.
