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

Now see what has become of the world.

This is big huge giant news if true.

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 ?

Now see what has become of the world.

It has become what we made it, and we're pretty good at messing things up.

This is big huge giant news if true.

Why ? SA would just be the last in line of a long list of countries that have 'the bomb', many of whom are our enemies.

The Saudis don’t feel like they can rely on the US for protection anymore. They don’t have a large Saudi population to have a military large enough (and loyal enough) to protect their land, government and resources. Nuclear weapons are a cheap defense when you don’t have enough Soldiers.

To counter Iran. The Kingdom has been scared sh!tless of a nuclear Iran for a while now and it appears they’ve given up hope that the West will take care of the issue. The Saudis and the Israelis are oddly aligned on this matter.

That is the big story here. No confidence that the U.S. will do anything to stop Iran from developing and then deploying nuclear weapons. The Saudis no longer trust the current administration. Barry's complete scrambling and the undoing of middle east relations on display. What a mess he's created of things.

“What does everyone else do with nuclear weapons ?”

They have, to this point, been expensive phallic symbols. But Saudi Arabia will use them in a Middle Eastern version of MAD, mutual assured destruction. This is doubtless why they’re negotiating with Germany for submarines, to ensure a second strike capability. They, of all people, must realize that Iran will not be deterred. Any losses are acceptable if they achieve their aim of today, whatever that is. Also, Saudi Arabia, by allowing their plans to leak has assured themselves a first strike as soon as Iran is ready to make it. America, at least America under Obama won’t even figure in the equation. We’ve probably already drafted an official letter to deplore the blood vaporization. I assure you forcing Obamacare on the US is hundreds of times more important to Obama than nuclear war in the Middle East.

They don't view us or Israel as their mercs anymore.

Or they are targeting interests that are not the same as ours.

Honestly, I suspect they are worried about Iran.

Maybe NOW all those dolts in the Obama administration can understand why preventing nuclear weapons in Iran was so important. (Paging Hillary Clinton). At least they pushed to help LGBT refugees.

Yep. Oddly, Tehran just happens to be within the F-15's unclassified combat radius from Riyadh. Even more oddly, we sold the Saudis some F-15s in 2011. It's only a coincidence, I'm sure.

I agree that the Saudi’s getting nukes poses more a threat to other middle east countries than it does to the US or Europe. We often talk about the spread of muslims into the west, but we forget that the majority of death happening from radical Islam is muslim against muslim. In the same way Europe fought Europe in two wars, the only thing stopping a version of it in the middle east has been US intervention. Now that our government has turned into pansies, the middle east is taking measures into their own hands. When they strike, it will be against another muslim country.

I am always torn on the idea of never wishing demise on anyone, but there is a part of me that wants to say stop interfering and let them kill each other already.

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.

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.
