On 5 December Prince bin Turki al Faisal, speaking at the “The Gulf and the Globe” conference in the Saudi capital Riyadh urged the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to become a powerful regional bloc by establishing a unified armed force and defense structure.
Because Iran’s nuclear program, which Tehran insists is completely devoted to the generation of civilian nuclear power, is incipient, but subjected to increasing international pressure in the form of increased U.S. and Israeli-led international sanctions.
Israel, on the other hand, is a de facto nuclear power, despite Tel Aviv’s self professed policy of nuclear ambiguity.
The two programs cannot be reconciled, so, taking bin Turki’s statements to their logical conclusion, the GCC will eventually move towards a WMD capacity, which, in this case, means a nuclear capability.
Bin Turki’s comments should not be dismissed lightly.

Lets face it and ill be right open about it, if they are talking about this, at the summit, then their intelligence service has picked up some very interesting and more than likely information of a conflict that will more than likely pull them in. Its one thing to say , sure the cia and nsa and all that, but these guys and their methods of extracting intel far exceeds western style. In short, they live in the stone age when one refers to them in methods of extracting intel. So i guess we can officially join the dots regarding latest 3 days news regarding spike in oil prices etc. If oil fields were to be hit left right and center then obviously oil prices would sky rocket within the first 30 seconds of the bell.
