Bush and Rice are helping the Saudis build nuclear plants. Nuke plants soon become nuke weapons.
Question: Is this good or bad?
These two Muslim states, Shia Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia, foment and fund Islamist terror globally.
We – the West, the UN, every country with leaders with working brain cells – are pulling out all the diplomatic stops to convince Iran not to build nukes. Diplomacy will fail as it is not backed by force – the entire world knows that America will not attack Iran – and no one else can.
(An Obama presidency will remove any vestige of any threat of force, making the situation even worse. Naïf that Obama is, he does not understand this. In thrall to him as they are, the media will not explain it.)
Rather than deploying diplomacy, with or without a threat of force (un-credible as it would be, especially following Nov 4, 2008) to convince Saudi Arabia not to build nukes, America is helping them to do so.
Perhaps some think this to be intelligent in the long run, that over 1,000 years of violence between the two sects of Islam will not result in the use of these weapons against each other, ignoring that more Muslims have been killed by other Muslims than by all infidels in history.
Yes, I do know that Obama the Messiah will end the building and deployment of nukes as well as the production of any fissile material (or materiel, frankly) globally (as well as strip billions from defense and slow production of systems needed to defend ourselves and our allies). He has promised to do so and who could possibly expect this true naïf not to execute on his promises. His Coming will result in Peace in Our Time, surely.
All Bush is doing really is bringing about an exchange of nuclear weapons sooner than later.
Israel, which will learn in the evening of 11/4 EST (assuming current front-runner status of The Second Coming), that America is a completely un-serious, historically ignorant nation of fools, will have no alternative to the existential menace of a nuclear-armed Iran than to nuke them first.
Sooner is always better than later, so maybe we’ll all be done with Madman Ahmadinejad by the end of the year.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah.
Now Israel will have to add Riyadh to its target list. As Riyadh is closer, this will be easier.
(Or perhaps Mossad will be so clever as to get the Saudi Sunni Arabs and the Iranian Shia Persians to use their nukes against each other, thereby destroying the threat both are to Israel?)
Or, perhaps, we just need a serious country – Israel – to do the work an un-serious America no longer is willing to do. Kinda like immigration: We’re not willing to pay prevailing wages to pick lettuce (let alone Davis Bacon wages), but we’ll let others do the dirty work for us at a price we are willing to pay.
Evidently America is unwilling to pay the price to pick the nuclear daisy and rather would outsource this dirty work to Israel.
