    The Royal House maybe could by dumping the US for others, the people could by dumping the Royal House if they do not dunp the US. One should expect that the Americans will not permit themselves the loss of their life-support (Saudi OIL) just to save the illegal Israeli settlements. But maybe the USA is beyond salvation because already too deep in a state of decadence, shown by it's continuing willingness to go down as a superpower and become the world's laughing stock because of Israel. DECADENCE ( a la Rome) : Becoming weak and loosing power and relevance while in essence still far more powerfull and stronger than others as a result of one's own choices whitout the existence of a valid threat or danger that made these choices nescessary, done willingly so by own free will, together with persistance in ignoring and looking away from the clear and logical consequences and dangers of that out of fear and rejection to confront and face the underlying cause that is growing division and bitterness in own society and rising of powerfull groups pushing selfish aganeda's (not serving the common good) that is preventing strong leadership and nescessary measures to stop the internal rot.
