Google it. It wasn’t nuclear weapons but I wouldn’t sell them anything nuclear.One thing about that family. When they don't like you they really let you and everyone know they don't.
And you know this how?
Trump sold the saudis nuclear technology. We don’t want murderers getting nukes.I could've put this in the political forum however I believe this has several ethical points to which validate this being its location.
The Kirkpatrick Thesis has brought to my attention the several interesting support transitions the United States has been repeating. The US pulled support from the dictator of Cuba and so Fidel Castro took over. The same things have happened in Nicaragua with the Sandinista. The idea is that the US may like they did before, pull support from Saudi Arabia's current dictatorship allowing for those seeking a regime change to take over.
This could have several conflicting factors. One of which being that an Islamic theocratic state will be born potentially ruining ties with the United States and creating a coalition of very strong Islamic states most of which do not support the US. Other possibilities form too, a worse regime taking over which could potentially eliminate the human rights of all citizens with a corrupt and terrible religious police. ( I am aware some of these things exist but they can be worse)
My ethical Inquiries are involving what should we do? Does the United States have a right to get involved in the transition? Should the US pull support? How would we deal with the repercussions of a worse regime? Do we need to fear the next Islamic surge? Does US interest matter here; should we remove that from the decisions for ethical purposes?
Did he? I know the Saudis have been planning for nuclear desalination for years because it provides clean water AND cheap electricity.
When did Trump sell it to them?
The Saudis have opposed nuclear proliferation in the whole region for over 60 years.
Nuclear power and desalination is another matter. They could have easily bought the technology from the French or Germans or Japanese.
