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.
What direction is the typical prevailing winds?
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.
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.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Transferred = Launch
Saudi Arabia’s ties to Paki nukes is hardly news; it has been happening for decades
......on purely a dispassionate, analytical, heartless, macro level, the sooner an Islamic Apocalypse happens the better off we will all be as a few million less muzzies is a start.
.........on a micro level, as always, lots of innocent men women and children are going to get vaporized.......
The so called “Palestinian Question” will finally get resolved. The Israelis know more about “Holocaust’s” than any other country, actually have an intellect, and will survive. As Sarah said, “let Allah sort em out”.
Just “image”, as John Lennon would say, a joint Israeli-Saudi nuclear strike against Iran. That would take out all of the major sites and some of the secondary ones, hopefully including the missiles and ‘swarm” navy.
One can dream, can’t they?
Worthy of reading for those who enjoy reading predictive model possible outcomes: http://lamp-method.org/eCommons/Bulls.pdf
Predicted nearly 3 years ago.....
“FIRE THE EXPLOSIVE BOLTS!!!”
now, with that news, Iran can, legitimately some might say - and responsibly as far as its own people will think, demand more concessions for any deal with the west over its nuclear program
