Saudis Think About The Bomb

Even the most twisted evil misogynyst dictator thinks they're normal and they need protection from someone else. Worried about stability in the mid-east, they think a nuclear bomb would help them. As if the US didn't already have enough reason to get rid of them. I am sure the French are thrilled to have a chance to secretly sell them the technology, as usual, but the US won't be thrilled about them having it. Nor, I imagine, are other Arabs, much less Iranians, happy about the prospect of terrorism central in the mid-east, rife with corruption and intolerance, keeping nuclear destruction so close all you need is to be a family member or provide a big enough bribe and you can have it.

Arabia's other options for its protection ... a non-proliferation treaty for the region ( because evil terrorists never lie, we know they would honor that agreement ) or a defense agreement with a nuclear power. They have that now, they're under the US nuclear umbrella, but I think they realize their clock is ticking.

Other Arab Nations: Arafat Must Stay ... Which Really Means 'We Don't Want Him In Our Country'

Gen. Nasser Youssef, the nominee to be interior minister in the new Palestinian Authority cabinet led by Ahmed Qurei, said Arafat was "the most incompetent revolutionary leader in history."
Arafat responded by storming out and promising to have a really big rally, which he did. Arafat told the rally that the Palestinians will march towards Jerusalem until they achieve victory. The crowd responded by shouting, "We will sacrifice millions of martyrs on the road to Jerusalem."

The Norwegians love that kind of thing. They gave him a Peace Prize for it in 1994.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak had earlier urged Israel not to opt for exile, saying the veteran leader was crucial for the Middle East peace process: "Nobody can tell what would happen in the Palestinian territories if Arafat is expelled. Terrorism, violence will erupt everywhere," he told a news conference.

As opposed to the idyllic peace that Arafat inspires now. Like his past expulsion, what they mean is that Arafat would have not many places to go. No one in the mid-east has ever wanted Palestinians throughout history. Gypsies get more respect. A militant and somewhat unbalanced Palestinian like Arafat is even worse. Arafat is the guy who tried to overthrow the King of Jordan ... after they let him live in Jordan to carry on terrorism against Israel. So that doesn't speak very well for Arafat.

Iran Must Prove It Has No Nukes Or Face More Scary UN Words

Yes indeed ... if Iran doesn't prove by October 31 ( why October 31st? Why not tomorrow? Why not six months ago, or a year ago and more when even Iranians admitted they had nukes?) then Tehran could be reported to the UN Security Council for possible sanctions.

Yes, reported to the Security Council for possible sanctions.

And they say the UN is not toothless. I bet the Iranians are scared by that one. No, they did what every mid-east demagogue does ... they walked and said they would have to reconsider their 'cooperation' with the UN. Let's see, you lied to the UN ... and they aren't even really looking and they found out about it ... so the response will be that you will stop cooperating? Will that lead to fewer nukes in the hands of rabid fundamentalist dictators?

Tehran insists its nuclear programmes are for generating electricity and says its equipment was "contaminated" with enriched uranium by a previous owner -- because they're picking up nuclear reactor equipment at the garage sale in Paris, it seems. Another reason to hate the French.

Iran apparently read the North Korean manifesto on dealing with the UN: "Tell them anything. They do not believe evil people would lie."

Masked Gunmen In Iraq Attack US Convoy

The fighting broke out at 4:30 pm (1230 GMT) when two American transporters and two other vehicles stopped in Khaldiyah after one of them broke down, an AFP correspondent at the scene said.

They said that gunfire and mortar fire was exchanged for more than an hour Thursday in the town of Khaldiyah, 30 kilometers (19 miles) west of Fallujah, after masked gunmen attacked the stalled convoy with rockets.
