Saudi Arabia: “Whatever the Iranians have, we will have, too.”

Saudi Arabia: “Whatever the Iranians have, we will have, too.”

Saudi Arabia telegraphed further opposition to the Obama administration’s ongoing push for the nuclear deal with Iran this week. This took place only days after the nation’s leader “snubbed” the president’s Persian Gulf Summit at Camp David.

The nation’s former head of intelligence argued the Sauds would match Iran’s nuclear capabilities as a matter of national security: “We can’t sit back … as Iran is allowed to retain much of its capability…” Further, Prince Turki bin Faisal has said they will not fall behind: “Whatever the Iranians have, we will have, too,” he declared at a recent conference in South Korea.

The remarks echoed similar sentiments from other Sunni nations in the Gulf who, in stark irony, are pursuing the very course President Obama argued would be prevented by the so-called ‘good deal’ with Iran.

Obama’s original pitch for the deal was its absence would create a “free-for-all” in the region in which nations would race to obtain nuclear weapons. Given the current framework of the deal, which is set to be finalized in two weeks, Iran will be allowed to maintain its current nuclear technology, a reality unsettling to its Arab enemies.

  2. So, why don’t you Stupid, Back Stabbing, Liing POS Saudis go attack Iran and do your own dirty work, for a change?
    IS bombed a Saudi mosque? HHaaaaa! Keep up the good work, Idiots!
    IS is Jihad Backfiring on Jihad.
    You Boobs created it. It’s yours. You can keep it.
    It doesn’t matter who wins, over there, because they all hate us, abuse us, and lie.
    (Of course, we DO ask for the abuse, to be fair about it.)
    It’s really do late to do anything smart about this so we’ll just have to sit back, let the blood flow, like the good ol’ days during the Cold War.
    Boy! Wasn’t that fun?
    ANd remember!
    We created that Bolshevik Monster, too.
    Weren’t the Fascists fighting against the Bolsheviks?
    And our good, good allies, Britain and France? All the effort they put into it between Dunkirk and Normandy? But, they sure were good at getting it all started!
    And then, there was WW1. The war to end all wars that started a century of wars. And no one is sure just, exactly, what the war goals were in that one, other than Britain losing its European hegemony, which it lost, anyway, right along with its empire. Same for France.
    And say! Didn’t those Brits and Frogs do a great job, civilizing the Muslims?
    Ya think there’s a real stupid pattern in all this?
    The three blips on the U.N. Security Council, Britain, France and the U.S.- has beens-all to “save future generations the scourge of war”.
    Thanks, Frank ie Delano! Just another Prog.
