Pompeo Says Keeping Saudis From Nukes a Top US Priority

Israel concerned Saudis might get nuclear arms with 'China's help'

Following reports that this is a specific concern of Israel, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he believes it is a “real risk” that Saudi Arabia will get nukes, and that the US views it as a “top priority” to try to prevent the Saudis from getting such arms.

Recent reports, all centering on the Israeli narrative, claim the Saudis are processing yellowcake uranium, and that they are getting secret help from China that could lead to the acquisition of nuclear arms in the future.

This is an unusual place for the administration to be in, as they general support arming the Saudis to the teeth, and Pompeo has repeatedly gone to bat for the idea that the Saudis need more arms for their “emergency” state. Those are US-made arms, of course.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"purchased Yellowcake uranium"..... now, where have we heard this charge before?!?

Oh, yes, I remember now; it was before the US invaded Iraq, and it was the Bush administration making that claim.

Chronology of Bush Administration Claim that Iraq Attempted to Obtain Uranium from Niger (2001-2003)

And remember when Secretary of State Colin Powell's address to the UN, regarding Iraq's WMD program, which US intelligence agencies knew was chock-full of bold-faced lies?!?

How the Bush administration sold the war – and we bought it

But if China spurns Saudi Arabia, there is always their nuclear-armed "regional frenemy", Pakistan, which "just might be persuaded" to do so. After all, just 3 days ago, Pakistan's Army Chief visited Saudi Arabia. Pakistan’s Army Chief Visits Saudi Arabia Amid Strained Ties

One would have to be naive in the extreme, to think that the issue of potential Saudi nuclear weapons didn't come up at some of these meetings.
