THE SAUDI KINGDOM FEELS THREATENED AND BUYS ATOMIC WEAPONS
4 diciembre, 2013
As a country when it comes to feel threatened by the idea that your neighbor could be looking to obtain a nuclear weapon, you would immediately look to sabotage their plans by imposing dozens of sanctions, taking advantage of your alliance with the super powers, and keep alleging how bad nuclear weapons are and how much instability creates on the whole region, if this doesn’t work neither, then the next step is to achieve by yourself openly atomic warheads and begin to create a nuclear plan to obtain homemade nuclear bombs, without worrying about sanctions from power countries cause they are your allies. As all of this would not have much sense for many of us, it seems to be very logical for the Saudis, who are openly an enemy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and is totally against is nuclear energy program, which so far has been proved to be nothing more than an energy program.
On November 24, Iran and the United States, China, Russia, France and Britain sealed a six-month deal in Geneva1 for a full resolution of the dispute on the Persian nuclear energy program, resulting on an historic agreement.
As described on the actual Joint Plan of Action (the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers) ‘‘the goal for these negotiations is to reach a mutually-agreed long-term comprehensive solution that would ensure Iran’s nuclear program will be exclusively peaceful. Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek or develop any nuclear weapons’’
As a reaction on this historical agreement, Abdullah al-Askar, the chairman of the foreign affairs committee appointed: “I am afraid Iran will give up something on to get something else from the big powers in terms of regional politics. And I’m worrying about giving Iran more space or a freer hand in the region,” he said.
Based on the records of Reuters, Saudi Arabia has the technology to deliver warheads since 1980. During the same time the Saudis secretly bought dozens of CSS-2 ballistic missiles from China. In 2009, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia warned the US special envoy that if Iran crossed the line, “we will get nuclear weapons”.
For David Albright, the head of the Institute for Science and International Security for Saudi Arabia to acquire nuclear weapons would mean withdrawing from the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Any US military sales would have to stop.
