Saudi nuclear weapons 'on order' from Pakistan
BBC News ^ | November 6 | Mark Urban

Posted on 11/06/2013 7:40:18 PM PST by PghBaldy

Saudi Arabia has invested in Pakistani nuclear weapons projects, and believes it could obtain atomic bombs at will, a variety of sources have told BBC Newsnight. ... Earlier this year, a senior Nato decision maker told me that he had seen intelligence reporting that nuclear weapons made in Pakistan on behalf of Saudi Arabia are now sitting ready for delivery.

Last month Amos Yadlin, a former head of Israeli military intelligence, told a conference in Sweden that if Iran got the bomb, "the Saudis will not wait one month. They already paid for the bomb, they will go to Pakistan and bring what they need to bring."

Saudi Arabia with nukes.

Sunni vs. Shia.

Muslim nukes right on Israel’s border.

What could possibly go wrong?

More places and ways for Al Queda to get nukes. One kooky rich Saudi (like bin Laden) could start World War 3.

All because of what seems like a sleeper cell operating out of the White House won’t stand up to Iran, or lead the West to do it together.

This is why Saudi Arabia is driven to get weapons of their own.

Otherwise Iran says bend over, and Saudi Arabia will have to do it.

We have a crisis in leadership in this nation. This causes the world to be one great big free-for-all.

Senator No-Record-at-All, is now President Abysmal Record across the board.

But how are the Saudis planning on delivering the crowd-pleasers?

As long as Saudi attacked Iran ONLY I must say I’d be fine with it.

In fact my only picky point would be that Iran fight back super hard and level a number of big Saudi cities.

I’d want both sides to wipe each other out almost completely.

They like death? Kay PROVE IT.

They’re ordering because they know Iran is closer to having Armageddon than the U.S. media and Government would have us think. What could go wrong? Well, here’s hoping Israel does everything right and prevailing winds don’t carry that chit too far.

In them you'll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days' concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Farsi phrase book and Koran; one hundred-thousand dollars in Rials; one hundred-thousand dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings--

I’d like to see a foreign policy that says we will not allow any Muslim nation to gain nuclear, biological or chemical weapon capability. None. Of course that means that Pakistan’s existing capability needs to be “downgraded” somehow. India I’m less worried about. But everybody else... Outta the pool.

Really amazing, the way Saudi Arabia makes NOTHING. NOT GUNS, not ammo, not fighter planes, not doctors, not nurses. Its ALL imported.

NUKES...? Also imported.

Its really amazing

I heard Saudi had its own secret nuclear program but I think maybe this report might be true.

Nothing will go wrong. The guys in charge of the nukes won't remember where the "on" button is.
Besides, when/if the order goes out to fire, all the Saudis will be out drinking tea and talking about their families. That's what the men AND women do, only in gender segregated groups.

1. All true. They have date palms and a fishing industry. Hamur is their fish, sea fish, white, pretty tasty.

2. Nukes: the Saudis wouldn't know what to do with them. They would have to import all kinds of expertise just to find a place to put them, store them, build the rockets to deliver them.
Personally I don't think the Saudis CARE one iota about nukes. they might nuke their coffee...but that's about the extent of their nuke-mentality.

3. Not amazing: impossible.

4. I heard Saudi had its own secret nuclear program but I think maybe this report might be true.
Mr. Saudi was high on one of their hallucinogens.
Or he was an escapee from one of their funny farms.
Secret nuclear program: IMPOSSIBLE to keep a secret like that in this day and age. From the expertise to the nuke material are thousands of blabber-mouths, documents and tests.

***The Saudi method would be to HIRE some country to blow some enemy to bits...and take the blame.
Who me? I was home drinking tea with my cousin Ali.

I couldn't agree more with your astute analysis. Three nuclear-armed Muslim countries representing religious sects hostile to one another; a nuclear-armed Israel being forced to defend itself from annihilation; and a compromised White House that appears to be aligned with Iran.

But wait, there's more: China, N.K. and Russia slavering on the sidelines, waiting to move quickly to take advantage of whatever opportunities develop.

This is deja vu all over again, American and European appeasement and disengagement similar to the run-up to WWII. It isn't a sleeper cell in the White House; it's a flat-out traitorous enterprise run by enemies of the American state.

Moronic assessment. The Saudis pay for the nukes, missiles AND Paki operators, who know how to nuke, say, Tel Aviv.

It's what is begotten when the US mollycoddles Pakistan. They should have been annihilated by India back in the 70s, but instead, the US chose to save them. Too bad for Israel. No wonder they are running to India.

they won't use nukes against Israel -- that would damage the Dome of the Rock and they KNOW Israel would immediately launch against Mecca and Medina.

But Iran would not target Mecca and Medina -- they would target Riyadh or Jeddah

But in those days to support India over Pakistan was to support the intentions of the USSR. In those days conservatives tended to lean to Pakistan, leftists toward India. This Cold War strategy illustrates the dangers of a correct short-term strategy causing long-term perils. Now that the Cold War is over, this tale provides a good argument for a more detached, less interventionist foreign policy oriented to long term survival over short term expediencies.

With a vacuum in the Middle East, all of America's former allies (abandoned by Obama) are scrambling to form alliances and bolster their defenses.

No US leadership = Chaos

As time goes on, my original thoughts about this President turn from terms like:

Coward
Inept
Inexperienced
Misguided
Poor judgment
Naive
Rookie
Sucker
Fooled
Golfer, not leader
Opportunist

to...

Intentional
Dangerous
Evil Agenda
Clandestine planning
Agent of MB
Anti-US
Ideologue
Communist Manifesto
Mean-sprited
Vindictive
Vandetta
Betrayer

I was trying to be objective 2008-2010 but the facts speak for themselves. It's not what I want to believe about the POTUS but the facts on the ground can lead one only to the second category of terms.

The Islamicists would indeed hit Israel, trying to target Israel’s coastal plain, main population center called the “Dan Bloc” (from the Biblical Tribe of Dan).

They have already stated that if they hit Israel’s Arab population centers then those Muslims will be considered honorable “Shahids” or martyrs.

So they don’t care about the Dome of the Rock or Temple Mount. Those places are run by Israel and in cooperation with Jordan.

Saudi Arabia already owns nukes — they paid for the Paki ones. The Pakis are Sunnis and this would be a direct opposition to Shia Iran
