Saudis parade nuclear missiles for the first time in defiance of US-Iranian nuclear accord
DEBKAfile ^ | 04/29/2014 | Debkafile

Posted on 04/29/2014 1:38:12 PM PDT by aimhigh

Saudi Arabia became the first Middle East nation to publicly exhibit its nuclear-capable missiles. The long-range, liquid propellant DF-3 ballistic missile (NATO designated CSS-2), purchased from China 27 years ago, was displayed for the first time at a Saudi military parade Tuesday, April 29, in the eastern military town of Hafar Al-Batin, at the junction of the Saudi-Kuwaiti-Iraqi borders.

. . . . .

The West has no information about when the new Chinese missiles were delivered to Saudi Arabia.

The presence of the top Pakistani soldier at the parade of military and nuclear hardware was meant as corroboration of Islamabad’s active role as the source of the Saudi nuclear arsenal.

So, when the muzzynuts take Saudi Arabia away from the king, they get the nukes.

They want to get the attention of Tehran, since they know well and good that D.C. cannot.

Well, from a Californian/Russian perspective, it’s better than emulating little, right wing chicken kids by doing their “duck and cover” drills.

[Extreme irony and sarcasm there. Near a naval air station far from California (Texas), we didn’t have hippies for parents, see the same propaganda or complain about defense. The monthly sirens and drills were an enjoyable break from school routines. I also enjoyed the Civil Defense class for a few months in high school.]

Well well. Whatdaya know? The chief funders of islamoNazi terrorist training around the world have also bought some nukes and are now parading them in the streets. This news comes to us the very day after Obama told us how successfully he is at foreign policy work. May God protect America.

First I've heard of the Saudis having nukes.It's certainly not difficult to understand why they'd want one....Iran isn't at all well liked,or trusted,by most of her neighbors.

Either way...there seems to be no restraint of Nations now so the drum beats of nuclear war are bound to come out....

More than disturbing when nations behaviors now are proving the US hasn’t enough influence to change the tide we see happening now on the World Stage.

Praying nothing occurs before all who will come into the fold are safely there....when this thing ultimately breaks it’s going to be unlike the world has ever known....or will again.

We have a ways to go til then but it’s difficult seeing things line up.

Everyone except the US. The US has proven that it can’t be trusted with nukes.

First I’ve heard also. Having a big delivery system isn’t the same as having a payload worth delivering.

Wasn’t it just a few months ago that SA was threatening to acquire nukes if nothing was done to stop Iran’s program?

The Saudi's may not physically possess any nukes for those missiles, but it's a commonly known "non-secret" that they have a number on lay-away at Pakistan's Nuke-mart.

This is all because he declined to bow to the king. He shouldn’t have backed away from his red line but he wasn’t willing to step into the political nightmare that would have ensued had he gone into Syria. This is one more example of him putting the welfare of his party before the welfare of the country.

“First I’ve heard also. Having a big delivery system isn’t the same as having a payload worth delivering.”

Supposedly, they have some bought and paid for from the Pak’s and they are boxed-up in Pakistan and ready to go on a plane at a moment’s notice. I think at least some of the Pak stuff is “maintenance free”.

“kinda like her husband Bill promised the Ukrainians we’d protect them from Russia if they gave up their nukes”

No leadership in any country whose government wants to protect its citizens will be falling for that one again.

Debka, so, incoherent and unreliable — sez the missiles were purchased 27 years ago, from the Chinese, but that the West doesn’t know when they were acquired. Sez there’s a Pakistani military leader there, but is really just beating a drum, because the Saudis don’t have nukes, and furthermore, they don’t have the personnel or infrastructure to develop nukes, unless they can be made out of old Mercedes parts and camel dung. Thanks aimhigh.

The long-range, liquid propellant DF-3 ballistic missile (NATO designated CSS-2), purchased from China 27 years ago..

And all these missiles do is sit in a warehouse. Liquid fuel is highly dangerous and expensive to keep on alert. The fuel degrades and needs to be swapped which is expensive and dangerous.

Nuclear capable is not the same as nuclear missiles.

Also, DEBKA is a not a serious news source. It’s been something of a joke for many years now.

When the Iranians get their bomb, the Saudis will be buying theirs from the Pakistanis.

Just to be Clear DC,, These are Chinese missiles delivered to Saudis by the Chinese
and paid for with American treasure.

The Chinese were never our friends, they want America destroyed by any means
possible. Even if they give weapons to our enemies for them to take on the dirty deed.

All I can say at this moment is (You damn DC Sons of Bitches, You'll kill us all!)

Not sure they have Nukes. From DBKA;
1. The oil kingdom was saying loud and clear that it has obtained nuclear missiles


Are they Missiles capable of carrying Nukes, or Nuke tipped already, is the question.

Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. Nukes aren’t for everybody. Israel can’t have nukes, because we didn’t sign the non-proliferation treaty. So we have to give our undisclosed arsenal up in order to get the signatories to live up to their minimal obligations under a treaty to which we aren’t a party. So there.
