The Middle East Nuclear Arms Race Begins

As reported by The Times of Israel in an article entitled "Saudis said set to build 16 nuclear reactors with Russian help":

"Saudi Arabia and Russia reached an agreement on Friday under which Riyadh is reportedly to build up to 16 nuclear reactors under Moscow’s supervision, further bolstering ties between the two countries days ahead of the deadline for nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers.

According to Saudi owned al-Arabiaya TV, the agreement, which provides for the 'peaceful use of nuclear technology,' was signed at a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at an economic forum in St. Petersburg. The Saudi report, which cited unnamed sources, was not immediately confirmed."

The "peaceful use of nuclear technology" in the hands of a kingdom which decapitates persons convicted of witchcraft and whips and imprisons women who have been gang-raped? Yeah, right.

Thank you, Obama, for bringing this plague upon the world as a byproduct of your search for a legacy-building nuclear detente with a maniacal Iran, which hangs homosexuals and stones to death women accused of adultery.

It just can't get any worse.


  1. Yesterday (June 19), Wikileaks published more than 60,000 secret Saudi cables including many expressing the Kingdom's concerns with the West's decision to allow Iran to continue with it's nuclear program.
    The NY Times editorial policy on Iran of 'what you don't know can't harm you', has still not published any news item pertaining to the leaked cables or content that would be of public interest.

  2. Guess #44 can not reconcile his dream of a nuclear weapon-free world with his dream of 'finding' his Muslim father(s). (still reading Oren in TimesofIsrael!)

    Salman's Saudi Arabia and Putin's Russia: Realpolitik is alive. Wonder how Iran feels about Russia now.

    How many lame ducks does it take to screw in a lightbulb? None. The duck is lame, opposed to carbon emissions, and thus living in the dark all the time ...
