    Saudi Arabia 'could go nuclear' unless Iran talks lead to 'watertight' agreement warn

    Saudi Arabia 'could go nuclear' unless Iran talks lead to 'watertight' agreement warns ambassador

    June 8, 2015

    Saudi Arabia could attempt to obtain a nuclear weapon unless negotiations with Iran produce a "watertight" agreement over Tehran's nuclear ambitions, the Saudi ambassador to the UK has warned. Prince Mohammed bin Nawwaf bin Abdulaziz al-Saud said he hoped negotiations with Iran would lead to a "guarantee Iran will not pursue this kind of weapon", but that "if this does not happen, then all options will be on the table for Saudi Arabia".
    "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.

    They might as well start now.

    The Obama administration will leave giant loopholes and let Iran blatantly violate the few restrictions it initially agrees to....

    ....and then blame the Saudi's if they try to match.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    More examples of those strong negotiation techniques this administration and this president is known for.

    They would be stupid not to.

    The Obama administration doesn't seem to understand that the weasel words and obfuscations that are the bedrock of Obama diplomacy fools nobody but the Obama administration*.

    If the Sauds are that concerned then they should have engaged the Iranians directly to form their own deal.

    I'm rather surprised Saudi Arabia is not armed to the teeth with nukes already.

    The Iranians would tell the Saudis to go to hell, and in reality that's what they're telling US and we dont piss them off near as much as the KSA does.

    Obama needs to be strong, he should just dictate to them the terms and invade if they don't comply.

    Re: Saudi Arabia 'could go nuclear' unless Iran talks lead to 'watertight' agreement

    As signers of the NPT, I guess our first step will be a rigorous sanctions program.

    In March 2006, the German magazine Cicero reported that Saudi Arabia had, since 2003, received assistance from Pakistan to acquire nuclear missiles and warheads. Satellite photos allegedly reveal an underground city with nuclear silos containing Ghauri rockets in Al-Sulaiyil, south of the capital Riyadh.[9] Pakistan has denied aiding Saudi Arabia in its nuclear ambitions.[10]

    Nuclear program of Saudi Arabia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In November 2013, a variety of sources told BBC Newsnight that Saudi Arabia had invested in Pakistani nuclear weapons projects and believes it could obtain nuclear bombs at will. Earlier in the year, a senior NATO decision maker told Mark Urban, a senior diplomatic and defense editor, that he had seen intelligence reporting that nuclear weapons made in Pakistan on behalf of Saudi Arabia are now sitting ready for delivery.

    Iran is just an excuse. A nuclear weapons program has been a longtime Saudi ambition.

    Since the early 70's the Saudis have been concerned about Israeli/Indian nuclear programs.

    Then why are you willing to give suspect Iranian military sites a pass?
