    We have a sanctions program on Iran presently on suspicions of a weapons program. If Saudi Arabia goes nuclear, why wouldn't we have a sanctions program on them?

    That's not what he was asking.
    Anyway, you are supportive of the sanctions on Iran since when, exactly?

    Word of advice here. Bringing up the NPT is not near that impacting, the only real reason for the NPT in the first place is the hypocritical creation of nuclear haves and have nots. Secondary is then what to do with those have nots that do not have US backing at the UN.

    Maybe you can clarify what you think he meant for me. Anyway, when did I say I was supportive of sanctions on Iran, hmm?

    perhaps Saudi Arabia should be the one negotiating with Iran. the region should handle its own problems for a change.

    Then I'll clarify. You're always looking for loopholes/dodges when the subject of the IAEA inspecting suspect Iranian military sites comes up.

    Just being honest here with you on this, if we were really paying attention to the point of the NPT then Israel would be a spotlight just as much as India would (India never even signed it, using the best argument to date as to why.)

    Well we have John Kerry (who btw served in Vietnam) leading the negotiations. What more could we ask for.

    "Watertight" agreement. Although Obama may overlook loopholes and disregard ambiguous language, other nations will definitely not ignore such shortcomings.

    Nuclear proliferation all across the volatile Middle East will almost certainly transpire unless the IAEA is allowed unfettered access to all declared and suspected nuclear facilities in Iran.

    Mornin Simplexity. The Egyptians say they will have the same deal as Iran too. If BO and his Team are thinking that they can make it difficult for the Saud and Others to get materials they need. Then they need to start listening to some Judas Priest. Especially the song. Got Another Thing Coming.



    We can’t sit back and be nowhere as Iran is allowed to retain much of its capability and amass its research,” one of the Arab leaders preparing to meet Mr. Obama said on Monday, declining to be named until he made his case directly to the president. Prince Turki bin Faisal, the 70-year-old former Saudi intelligence chief, has been touring the world with the same message.

    Still, the Saudis have given the subject of nuclear armament more than passing thought. In the 1980s they bought a type of Chinese missile, called a DF-3, that could be used effectively only to deliver a nuclear weapon because the missiles were too large and inaccurate for any other purpose. American officials, led by Robert M. Gates, then the director of the C.I.A., protested. There is no evidence the Saudis ever obtained warheads to fit atop the missiles.

    Prince Turki argued that the United States was making a “pivot to Iran” that was ill advised, and that the United States failed to learn from North Korea’s violations of its nuclear deals. “We were America’s best friend in the Arab world for 50 years,” he said, using the past tense.....snip~
