Jihad For Bentley - One Thousand Yemeni Heads for a 100 Bentleys

A Saudi Arabian prince has promised to give each one Bentley each to compatriots flying for the countries air force on its ongoing military campaign in Yemen. There are a 100 Saudi fighter pilots taking part in the bombings.

The flamboyant Prince Alaweed bin Talal tweeted the promise on but later deleted it. He owns a $300 million stake in twitter and runs one of his country’s biggest companies, Kindom Holdings. He’s a typical Saudi guy, lanky lad, you must have seen him in one of those Arab money documentaries.

His tweet before they were deleted reads.

"I congratulate our wise leaders on the victory of Operation Decisive Storm and the beginning of Operation Restoring Hope,"

"To recognize the one hundred participating Saudi pilots I am pleased to present them with 100 Bentley cars," Eh!! Too much money.

Saudi Arabia along with 9 other Sunni countries invaded Yemen three weeks ago (Operation Decisive Storm), when Houthi militias (Shia) aligned to Iran forcefully took over power. Saudi Arabia did not allow Yemen to “solve its domestic problem”, it decided to “interfere” in Yemen’s domestic political strife.

Prince Alaweed bin Talal’s motivation (show off) tweet was met with anger by obviously, Yemeni citizens and other arabs (Saudis) who are a little bit more sensitive (understanding) to the current situation and long term consequence of the current conflict.

If you've seen him in documentaries, that's what he does, he is worth $23 billion and this might be his second time of giving out Bentleys, The first being to his favourite football team winning the local league.
