President Barack Obama has approved plans for the U.S. to help the United Arab Emirates become the first Arab nation with a nuclear power industry that will fuel the country's growing demand for electricity.

to make oild deals. the more we help them the more oil they give us the less oil they need to fuel their country the more oil they can give us.
For many environmentalists and the renewable power sector, President Obama's $3.6 trillion blueprint released yesterday would provide a flush of new cash to spur the development of energy-efficient buildings and carbon-free wind and solar farms. It also would add new money to ready U.S. EPA for the global warming challenges to come.
But for some in the nuclear and coal industries, which produce 70 percent of America's electricity, the plan would hamper the progress of the very fuels that switch on most of the nation's lights.
which is true and almost anything can be exploited for war purposes, i guess it would be the same as denying them a health care system because of the threat of them making a biological weapon. but the word nuclear and arab in the same sentence is always going to raise red flags. and it doesnt have to be the will of the state any worker or scientist could be a sympathizer or whatever. there is a lot of variables.

some people fail to grasp the concept that a nuclear a powerplant doesnt mean nuclear weapons.
They are infact entirely different things.
There's a long process from having a nuclear plant to having a nuclear bomb,
dont worry though, this fact is also being deliberatley forgotten in regards to Iran, so its understandable people, mainly Americans fail to appreciate the difference.
After All, Australia has nuclear powerplants.
Im sure a lot of European countries do too, but, no nukes.
Perhaps we are better thinking along the lines of assisting and monitoring to ensure nothing gets leaked or produced, instead of ignoring and forgetting, and letting them do it all by them selves.

I can not beleive this guy. What gives him the right to just hand over nukes ? Do not most of the people in that part of the world hate us? Why then do you give them the bomb? I am really starting to wonder what Obama is really up too?
A document providing confidential details of US civilian nuclear sites was accidentally posted on the internet, the government has admitted.
The 266-page document included the precise location of stockpiles of fuel for nuclear weapons, the Obama administration said.
The Government Printing Office website took down the posting on Tuesday after experts expressed concern.
US officials insisted the information detailed was not a security threat.
The document, which lists itself as "sensitive but unclassified", contains maps and information on hundreds of US civilian nuclear sites.
No military installations are included but the document does cover the nuclear weapons laboratories at Los Alamos, Livermore and Sandia.
