BREAKING: Saudi Arabia Responds to Iran Deal With Shocking Move… Our Worst Fears Just Came True
Barack Obama made sure to emphasize to America that he believed the recent Iran deal would stop nuclear proliferation in the Middle East. Quite to the contrary, however, it now seems to have increased it.
A U.S. official says that Saudi Arabia will buy “off the shelf” nuclear weapons from Pakistan as a response to the recently-concluded negotiations in Lausanne, Switzerland.
According to the New York Post, the Saudis feel that the deal would actually accelerate Iran’s nuclear production and are seeking nuclear weapons as protection against the Shiite pariah state, which has frequently clashed with Sunni Saudi Arabia.
The Saudis financed most of Pakistan’s nuclear program but haven’t felt the need to acquire weapons from them until now.
It’s rare to see the House of Saud and Benjamin Netanyahu agree on something, but the Prime Minister of Israel said something similar in remarks on Twitter last month.
“Such a deal would not block Iran’s path to the bomb. It would pave it,” Netanyahu said.
“Just two days ago, Iran said that ‘the destruction of Israel is non-negotiable,’ And in these fateful days Iran is accelerating the arming of its terror proxies to attack Israel.
“This deal would legitimize Iran’s nuclear program, bolster Iran’s economy, increase Iran’s aggression & terror throughout the ME & beyond,” the tweets read.
Many Sunni Middle East states feel the same way, which is why the Gulf States Cooperation Council — of which Saudi Arabia is a part — has threatened sanctions against the United States if the deal is passed and causes demonstrable harm to Sunni states.
While the sanctions would originally just deal with the acquisition of military hardware, it might not end there.
“This is kind of the start of financial sanctions on the U.S.A. in case a bad agreement is signed,” a source in the closed-door meetings of the Gulf States Cooperation Council told reporters. “It could develop beyond military spending.”
