US MAY OPEN PATH FOR SAUDI ARABIA TO ACQUIRE NUCLEAR WEAPONS

Saudi Arabia is moving swiftly to become the next country in the Middle East with nuclear power. The Kingdom is on the verge of striking a deal with the US for the purchase of nuclear reactors despite concerns over its refusal to accept stringent restrictions against the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman, who is the de facto ruler of the country, has ambitious plans to diversify the country’s energy source and is in the market to purchase nuclear power reactors. The potential for lucrative deals is too good to be missed and the Trump administration is thought to be mulling over loosening US law to win Saudi contracts, worth billions. The Kingdom has refused to be bound by stringent US regulations that restrict reprocessing and enriching uranium for the production of nuclear weapons.

With competitors like Russia and China waiting in the wings, Trump is keen to strike a deal with the Saudi’s and breathe new life into the American nuclear industry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: you need to look at the long term consequences of such a move.

IF in fact the US wants to sell nuclear reactors here, please make sure that they are the kind which produce no materials which can be reprocessed and create enriched uranium for the production of nuclear weapons. Thorium reactors are clean energy reactors, which won't do this.

And you have to know where the next evolution of such a process will go, if you don't do this; the creation of a nuclear-armed Saudi Arabia.

Please remember: Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy, obeying Sharia law, and has no constitution whatsoever. And against whom would they use such weapons?!? Perhaps, against Iran, their existential enemy in the region?!? Perhaps, against Israel?!?

Yes, I know you like Prince Salman, and he has become one of your your BFFs in the Middle East.

But President Trump, I need to ask you; what moves has Prince Salman actually made toward turning the monarchy into a constitutional monarchy?!? The short answer is, zero, nada, zip.

This will probably generate an arms race in the Middle East like nothing you have ever seen before, sprouting MAD capabilities in countries like... wait for it... perhaps Bahrain, whose government's view on human rights is just to the right of those of Attila the Hun, and whose repressive government, monarchy, and supreme court have just formally obliterated all oposition to the ruling party.

What, sir, will a nuclear-armed to the teeth Middle East mean for the possibilities for peace for the next generations?!?

I respectfully believe that you and your advisors need to think such a decision through to its logical conclusions, and in selling Saudi Arabia nuclear reactors, that we not sell them the ones whose biproducts can create nuclear weapons.
