    This has been in the wind for several years. If the Iranians get the bomb, the Saudis will follow. The underlying conflict is that the Iranians fancy themselves much more appropriate custodians of certain Moslem holy places that happen to be on Saudi soil. Brother Barak may not appreciate just how much life is a contact sport – even now.

      That is because “brother Barack” is – stripped to his elemental nature – a mostly entitled lackadaisical pointy headed ivy league elitist puke who actually believes his own BS.

      A cure for this nation’s ills could be a complete ban on Ivy League (excepting the Med School) grads serving at ANY level of government for 50 years. That would flush the system clean.

      Off tangent, where would Saudi Arabia be w/o oil and its iron grip? Unfortunately for us, Persia seems to have the far more willing/able merchant class. Therefore, in the long-long run – should oil ever phase out or become priced on par with agricultural type margins, I don’t think SA is well positioned to survive.

      Libya, Syria and Egypt have all demonstrated that an iron grip is not everlasting. However, no one in the ME has demonstrated any other form of government works either.

    Of course – The writing is on the wall.

    The fact Iran doesn’t already have a bomb is somewhat puzzling given Pakistan and others seem to have so little trouble getting there.

    Now we have another bout of regional MAD – but this time with two sides too willingly ready to die in the name of god.

      They’d have had it years ago, but for Israel’s prodigious efforts to deny it to them. SCoaMF wants to hand the Persians the keys to the Kingdom, literally and figuratively.

      This of course is the problem, even in the depths of the cold war the Russians were no more willing to obliterate themselves than we were.
