Saudi's are apparently getting help from Pakistan on obtaining expertise and technology. This report contradicts imformation put out by the whitehouse saying no attempt was being made by the Saudi's to get the bomb.

The U.S. intelligence community has concluded Saudi Arabia intends to acquire nuclear weapons, the intelligence newsletter Geostrategy-Direct reports.

The intelligence community regards Saudi Arabia as being next in line to acquire nuclear weapons, the report said. The council asserted the United States would have more difficulty in handling Saudi Arabia, a leading exporter of crude oil, than it would have with Libya and Syria.

The U.S. intelligence community assessment of Saudi Arabia contrasts with statements by administration spokesmen that the kingdom would not seek to acquire nuclear weapons. That assertion, by the White House and State Department, came in October after Saudi Arabia was reported to have signed a nuclear cooperation agreement with Pakistan.

If the Saudi's were successful with a program to build atomic weapons the political dynamics in the middle east would be radically changed.

I think that it might be a good thing. It would be a balance to Israel's nukes. It would then put pressure on Israel to get rid of their nukes. As long as they are the sole nuclear power in the Mid-East they will not willingly give up their weapons.

AA, The Iraelis might also willingly use them or other military response to prevent another middle east country from going nuclear, they already have shown a willingness to do so in the past.

If and when Israel uses nuclear weapons in a first strike they will then be the evil in the world. No amount of if's can justify such an act. It would be the greatest act of terrorism in the history of the world.

Correct. Israel will do what she did with the former Osirak Nuclear Plant ( Irak ). ( Link )

Quote : " As one Middle East specialist has written, "For Begin, the prospect of an Iraqi nuclear capability, indeed, any Arab nuclear capability, was totally and irrevocably intolerable. "
