I hope so he is constantly kissing them and holding their hands...
It is simple. SA is a client state of the US, the current regime a puppet government.
They cooperate with the business and political goals of the US.
Iran does not cooperate so they are evil. It makes no difference that we are supporting a monarchy. Bush actually said we invaded Iraq to promote democracy in the ME. More hypocrisy and cronyism from the masters.
Nuclear energy, on the other hand, would require enormous investments in new infrastructure by a country with zero expertise in this complex technology.

You don't understand.. nuclear power is not the same as nuclear weapons. We also offered Turkey nuclear power plants, however they refused. Iran was also offered nuclear power, so long as Russia over saw the removal of spent nuclear fuel.. they of course refused.

Bush and Rice should revisit the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty they signed in 1968. If USA gives away nuclear technology to the Saudis, why shouldn't Russia help out Iran?
