Bush welcomes Iran's nuclear pledges
Wed 22 October,2003
BALI, Indonesia (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush says Iran's latest steps to reassure the world over its nuclear programme are "a very positive development".
Iran agreed on Tuesday to accept snap inspections of its nuclear sites and to freeze uranium enrichment in what three visiting European ministers hailed as a promising start to removing doubts about Tehran's atomic aims.
Asked at a news conference in Indonesia if he was confident Iran was foreswearing nuclear weapons, Bush thanked the British, French and German foreign ministers "for taking a very strong universal message to the Iranians that they should disarm".
"It looks like they're accepting the demands of the free world and now it's up to them to prove that they've accepted the demands. It's a very positive development," Bush said. http://www.reuters.co.uk/newsPackageArticle.jhtml?type=worldNews&storyID=391900§ion=news

Re: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia in secret nuke pact
IF they have discussed this, and it is a big IF, is the "pact" directed against Iran, as the Arabs fear a possible Iranian nuclear capability, and not against the West.
Iran has a military agreement with India that is in conflict with Pakistan.
The solution is naturally that we will give Iran protection in the same way as we protected Europe during the Cold War. I know that this might seem strange, but wait and see...

I thought Krauthammer expressed doubt to Tony Snow about this today.
If true, let it go off accidentally in Mecca.
