Skip to comments.Kerry Reportedly to Offer Nuclear Umbrella to Gulf States
Posted on 03/05/2015 8:53:30 PM PST by Olog-hai
Western sources have reportedly revealed that US Secretary of State John Kerry is offering Gulf States an American nuclear umbrella to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat, as Kerry is finalizing a controversial deal with Iran ahead of a March 31 deadline for talks.
The sources spoke to the London-based Arabic language Al-Hayat newspaper, as cited by Yedioth Aharonoth, and said that Kerry while in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this week intends to present a plan to senior sources in the country.
Through the framework of the plan, the US would provide a sort of nuclear umbrella to the Gulf States as a counterbalance to the Iranian nuclear deal.
According to the report, the plan essentially would have the US defend the Gulf region from any nuclear attack that Iran might launch, in what appears to be a covert acknowledgement that the deal will allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons as Israel has warned.

A nuclear umbrella? How does he propose to do that?
And just why would the Gulf States’ believe Mr. Kerry?
Yeah, because world leaders trust Mr. Obama to keep his commitments.
Where does Tehran John get the authority to do that?
Perhaps the Gulf States should ask the Ukrainians how well Clinton’s security guarantee went for them.
They may accept the offer but they’re far too astute to rely on it. They can plainly see its on offer by a pair of congenital liars. And as Muslims they’re taught from the cradle to never trust (and how to lie to) infidels. The offer is meaningless. So, the BS flag goes here:
Did they laugh in Kerry’s face?
Did Kerry specify a “red line” that Tehran could not cross, or else?
Really? This idiot needs to be sent to prison for treason!! This pathological liar is nothing but an assclown puppet!
How valuable will that umbrella be 10 minutes after the warhead blows up over Tel Aviv?
Hell, after the owebama wrecking ball has destroyed the DOD do we even HAVE any nukes that will work?
Why the Gulf States? What about the rest of them? WTH? Everything these imbeciles do reeks of idiocy.
Kerry is a psychopath.
If Iran gets the bomb it will trigger a total nuclear arms race in the Gulf.
Is Kerry talking about extending the same Nuclear Umbrella to the Gulf States that Bill Clinton extended to the Ukraine to protect the Ukraine from Russia aggression in exchange for the Ukraine giving up it's nuclear weapons arsenal that Obama is ignoring or is he talking about the one GW Bush promised to Poland that Obama reneged on?
Just like we did for the Ukraine, after they gave up their nukes, SURE.
Just like we rescued those poor men who fought to their DEATHS on the roof, UH-HUH.
What country in this day and age would rely on another for their defense?
0bama's not very good with umbrellas.
