RIYADH - Fearing Shia Iran is on the verge of becoming a nuclear power, Sunni Saudi Arabia and other Gulf Arab states are warning they will not hesitate to join a rumbling regional arms race, analysts say.

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which groups Arab countries in the world’s top oil and gas exporting region, said at a summit meeting on Sunday that it has decided to set up a nuclear energy programme for peaceful purposes.

The announcement by the six countries — Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman — came amid concerns in the West and in the Gulf that non-Arab Iran’s nuclear enrichment programme could produce an atomic bomb.

Israel, which has its own nuclear reactor, has long been suspected of possessing nuclear weapons, and Israel Prime Minister Ehud Olmert appeared to admit as much for the first time in a television interview on Monday

Well, they are dependant on energy supplies from unstable Arab regimes, so of course they will need nuclear power supplies.... :)

Seeing as it appears we can't sell them our fighter planes, perhaps we could sell them a reactor or two - about the same cost as 200 Typhoons, and about the same delivery time!

I was having a good laught the other night with my German Friend. He was 16 in 1945, Hates Nazism and every thing Hitler stood for.
He could not resist bring up the Aryan 'thing' for he has an almost British sense of self 'Pizz' taking.
I had to tell him that the only 'True' Aryan nation was Iran, more fun and games at our next meeting.

I blame King George II for all of this. Rewarding India for building and testing an Nuc and then telling his Good Arab comrades there cannot be an Arab Nuc for it will upset his other Mid East friend.
Its tantamoute to incitment IMHO.
