Saudis have purchased nuclear weapons from Pakistan
Honestreporting ^ | 11/7/13

Posted on 11/07/2013 7:30:24 AM PST by pabianice

The Saudis bought nuclear weapons from Pakistan, according to the BBC. They’re even ready for delivery:

One senior Pakistani, speaking on background terms, confirmed the broad nature of the deal – probably unwritten – his country had reached with the kingdom and asked rhetorically “what did we think the Saudis were giving us all that money for? It wasn’t charity.”

Another, a one-time intelligence officer from the same country, said he believed “the Pakistanis certainly maintain a certain number of warheads on the basis that if the Saudis were to ask for them at any given time they would immediately be transferred.”

The United States had an obligation in 1945 to not allow any other country to have nuclear weapons.

Now see what has become of the world.

This is big huge giant news if true.

The United States had an obligation in 1945 to not allow any other country to have nuclear weapons.

And HOW were we supposed to do that ?

Now see what has become of the world.

It has become what we made it, and we're pretty good at messing things up.

This is big huge giant news if true.

Why ? SA would just be the last in line of a long list of countries that have 'the bomb', many of whom are our enemies.

It was the Communists in the West.

The Saudis don’t feel like they can rely on the US for protection anymore. They don’t have a large Saudi population to have a military large enough (and loyal enough) to protect their land, government and resources. Nuclear weapons are a cheap defense when you don’t have enough Soldiers.
