Saudis have purchased nuclear weapons from Pakistan
Honestreporting ^ | 11/7/13

The Saudis bought nuclear weapons from Pakistan, according to the BBC. They’re even ready for delivery:

One senior Pakistani, speaking on background terms, confirmed the broad nature of the deal – probably unwritten – his country had reached with the kingdom and asked rhetorically “what did we think the Saudis were giving us all that money for? It wasn’t charity.”

Another, a one-time intelligence officer from the same country, said he believed “the Pakistanis certainly maintain a certain number of warheads on the basis that if the Saudis were to ask for them at any given time they would immediately be transferred.”

Before they strike, you might want to stock up a years worth of gasoline, because oil would spike to $200/barrel and make the recession 2008-2010 look like a cake walk. The whole world economy would go in the tank even if it lasted a week.

70% could care less? I would suggest over 90% of Americans don’t care and won’t, unless those gas prices shoot over $4.00, then they will want the Dictator in DC to save them again.

Nope, you. Who knows where or when those things will be set off.

While the Kenyan doesn’t have much of a record for helping anyone he has said he would help the muslims in a fight. Iran/SA would be muzzie -on-muzzie violence so I guess the question would be which muzzie would he sabotage next.? He hasn’t been any help in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria-—working our way thru Asia Minor now with about 18 muzzie countries left to further screw up.

“so I guess the question would be which muzzie would he sabotage next.?”

Valarie Jarrett was born in Iran and there are numerous former Iranian logiest or lobbyist related people working in the administration. The recent thaw with Iran where Obama is offering to give them the Shaw’s frozen funds (which frees up 35 billion in Europe for them also) indicates that he’s pro-Iranian. The recent slap-in-the-face delivered at the UN by Saudi Arabia indicates they feel he’s pro-Iranian also. Saudi Arabia is screwed. That’s why they’ve bought Pakistani nukes.

Presumably the coordinates have long been sent out to our SSBNs.

Certainly explains the recent dust-up with the Saudis.

The Saudis told Barry that if he allows the mullahs to get the bomb, they buy an arsenal from Pakistan.

Barry didn't like that idea.

Also, they have one of the highest military expenditures in the region, while Iran, meanwhile, as one of the lowest [ and Iran has a lower military budget than nations like Greece and Australia]. Not that I condone anyone downplaying the threat of Iran at all, but one cannot help but note that almost all of our Presidential candidates and members of Congress, with very few exceptions, downplay the threat of at least one jihadist nation. So worrying about our leaders downplaying jihadist threats becomes entirely moot anyhow. If not Iran, than Saudi Arabia or Pakistan or Egypt - or all three.

They probably have. But it was certainly a wink and a nod thing to pander to their street and to preempt criticism from their more radical neighbors. Just like Jordan used to do.

The Saudi royals are businessmen first and foremost. As long as Israel leaves them alone they’ll leave Israel alone. Doing anything else would be bad for business.

As would allowing Iran to have a Persian Gulf Muslim monopoly on nukes. Iran may hate Israel, but it covets the Saudis oil wealth.

To do what? Ideas folks?

Take on Iran.

That’s exactly correct. From what I’ve read, the Saudis are really nervous of Iran - especially all the more so since a couple of their provinces along the Persian Gulf have large numbers of Shiites in them.

Anecdotally, I read somewhere that the Saudis were almost giddy that Israel bombed Saddam Huessein’s nuke facility (Osirak) in 1981. Back them, like now, they were terrified of someone else in the Gulf obtaining a nuclear weapon.

The United States had an obligation in 1945 to not allow any other country to have nuclear weapons.

And HOW were we supposed to do that ?

I think General Patton had an idea ... that's probably why he was murdered in Dec 1945.

Great question! I was just wondering what Israel thought of this since the US Gov. (ObaMao) doesn’t seem to mind. If it is indeed muzzies killing muzzies, then it only helps protect our troops.

True Army, and then they’ll blame Bush’s buddies in the oil industry.

Yah no kidding! All the more reason this country needs to be energy independent. Oil prices would still go up, but maybe gas wouldn’t be so affected by it then if we weren’t buying it from overseas.

Those rich arabs have been creative creating artificial resort islands and beaches. Maybe they want nukes to reconstruct Saudi Arabia into an island? They have way too much oil money on their hands and not enough things to spend it on.
