Default AP Interview: Saudi warns of Mideast nuclear race

With the 3 unread news reports just below this, which I saved a few days ago but never posted as I got lost with the time.

I am unsure Obama's way of saving some money is going to be good for America. Yes some cuts need to be made in the military budget, but also in plenty of other places.

I would look at this growing govt. and start there first.. One thing is to many are over paid. And the excuse used in the past is not true today as everyone is tying to get employment.

And coming from those that surrounds Israel you can except them to get picked out to. If they have them they have never dared to even think of using them. While I doubt many other countries in the region would, if they had them. But thats is just IMHO.

Yet based on the above, yes if they have them speak out. And can anyone really prove they have nuclear weapons?

..AP Interview: Saudi warns of Mideast nuclear race

By EDITH M. LEDERER | Associated Press Wed, Jan 25, 2012. Posted 28 Jan. 2012.

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) An influential member of the Saudi royal family warned Wednesday that unless the Middle East becomes a nuclear weapon-free zone, a nuclear arms race is inevitable and could include his own country, Iraq, Egypt and even Turkey.

Prince Turki Al Faisal said the five permanent U.N. Security Council members should guarantee a nuclear security umbrella for Mideast countries that join a nuclear-free zone and impose "military sanctions" against countries seen to be developing nuclear weapons.

"I think that's a better way of going at this issue of nuclear enrichment of uranium, or preventing Iran from acquiring weapons of mass destruction," the former Saudi intelligence chief and ambassador to the U.S. and Britain said in an interview with The Associated Press. "If it goes that route, I think it's a much more equitable procedure than what has been happening in the last 10 years or so."

Turki said establishing a nuclear weapons-free zone "deserves everybody's attention and energy, more so than other activities which we see unfolding, whether it is redeployment of fleets in the area, whether Iranian or American or British or French, whether it is the sanctions efforts against Iran."

The Security Council has imposed four rounds of sanctions against Iran, mainly targeting its defense and nuclear establishment, but Tehran has refused to suspend uranium enrichment and enter negotiations on its nuclear activities. It maintains its nuclear program is peaceful, aimed solely at producing nuclear energy, but the U.S. and many European nations believe Iran's goal is to produce nuclear weapons.

Turki's proposal could impose sanctions against Iran if there is evidence it is pursuing weapons of mass destruction, which include nuclear as well as chemical and biological weapons. But it could also put Israel under sanctions if it doesn't come clean on its suspected nuclear arsenal.
