Weapons proliferation -- right next door to Iraq

Saudi Arabia -- nuclear threat?

According to the Center for Defense Information, the Saudi regime has requested of the International Atomic Energy Agency permission to sign the `Small Quantities' protocol. Translation: the Wahabi-financing desert regime could have `permission' to possess up to 10 tons of natural uranium -- enough for a few bombs people.

Remember, this is the same nation that bred 15 of the 19 Sept. 11 terrorists.

More from CDI:
``Although Saudi Arabia is not traditionally considered a regional proliferation threat, the dynamic changes presently taking place in the Middle East necessitate taking a closer look at the motives behind the Saudi request. The timing is particularly suspect, since the validity of the Small Quantities Protocol itself is currently in question by the IAEA. After years of advocating a nuclear-free Middle East, a Saudi request to join the Protocol at this point seems opportunistic considering the circumstances surrounding both the Protocol’s status and Saudi Arabia’s tumultuous nuclear past.
