I can see that the face of Queen Noor is always shining the last time. Is this because of special make up of because of surgeries?
I know that she made a surgerie on her lips. I like queen Noor but she looks onatural the last time.

Abdullah was 37 or so when he assumed the CP then King role. I guess what puzzles me is how KH wasn't seemingly interested in grooming his sons for possibly being King--assigning them projects and watching them in action. I think KH was they kind of man who very much lived in the day; multiple assassination attempts will do that for you, I'm sure! But he had Abdullah, Feisal, Ali and Hamzah all as possible successors; yet he didn't seem to care about seeing what they might be capable of as ruler. In the end, choosing Abdullah was the easiest choice for a dying man who wanted to have one of his sons inherit the throne. KH waited till it was too late to consider anyone else. Whatever one thinks of KA, choosing him as a successor when one is on one's deathbed because it was a logical, easy choice as Abdullah was the eldest son and there wouldn't have to be any changes made in the constitution--well, it seems like it wasn't the best planned or thought out choice.....if this makes any sense.
Interesting comments. I think that KH chose Abdullah becuase of the past history of Jordan. Like you say KH was subject to assasination attempts; he was also subject to several coup attempts. I guess he felt that Abdullah being a family man and having military training would be better than Hamzah who was in his late teens? when his father died.

For me it seems like he did think it out - but due to his failing health it was thought out quickly. So yes he should have thought about and sorted out the succession issue years before. But i guess he put it of. Then obviously on dying he made the decision about Abdullah.

BUT - with so many children and ex-wives i think the succession issue in Jordan for years was extremely complicated. QN obviously wanted her eldest son Hamzah to become CP. KH couldn't do this becuase of his age. PHasan was the heir up until Abdullah became the heir. Now KH couldn't have made Abdullah the heir before his death because of (well this is my belief) of pressure from QN. Yes, i know alot of people say that QN didn't put any pressure on her husband for Hamzah to be named heir or CP - but i believe she must of.

Now supposing KH had named Hamzah his heir say in the 80's and he had died. It would have left Jordan (which i think was alittle unstable politcally then) with a child as the ruler. Not a good situation. So he waited.

As for him not training them - i think he did didn't he? They recieved military training and must have participated in government and so on. The fact that the succession was so smooth after KH's death proves to me that he must have had some sort of training in government issues.

I HOPE MY POST MAKES SENSE!!!
