    I agree; I do not trust them with nuclear weapons.
    Saudi Arabia should rather pay us to defend them.

    If you read the article, the Saudis are also talking to Russia and China about their technology.

    Wouldn't it be better if we provide the tech to build the reactors, and thus know exactly how to monitor them for compliance with enrichment restrictions, than to let the Russkies or China provide the tech?

    Please remember that the whole idea of the Nuclear Non-proliferation treaty was to restrict weapons development while allowing development for power production.

    I hope that Saudi Arabia gets nuclear weapons.

    It will change the balance of power in the ME.

    And neutralize Israel's unfettered military dominance of the region. .. :cool:

    You do realize that under the NPT any Nuclear power can provide tech and expertise to a country for nuclear power purposes?
