    The west cant win.


    Remove Iran military and nuke ability and then that is a costly war. And even then the Saudis may still want nukes from their BF Pakistan.

    Or

    Dont remove the Iranian threat and Saudis get nukes to counter Iran anyways. By all means Iran surely has enough material to build low grade nuclear weapons. However, they surely struggle on adequate delivery vehicles and higher yield weapons.

    ""
    audi Arabia reserves the right to arm itself with nuclear weapons if Riyadh's arch-rival, Iran cannot be stopped from making one, the kingdom's minister of state for foreign affairs said.

    "It's definitely an option," Adel al-Jubeir told the Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa) in a recent interview. If Iran becomes a nuclear power, he said, more countries would follow suit.

    "And Saudi Arabia has made it very clear, that it will do everything it can to protect its people and to protect its territories," al-Jubeir added.

    Tehran has been working on the use of nuclear power for decades and in 2015 signed a nuclear deal with world powers to stop the development of a bomb in exchange for lifting sanctions.""

    They could win by not getting involved.

    This is not news, they’ve always felt this way. They will only get nukes if Iran gets them, so if Biden can direct foreign policy to keep them from acquiring that, the Saudis won’t get one.

    A armed society is a polite society? Worked for USA vs Russia for 70 years. Pakistan and India used to have wars every 5 years before nukes too. Nukes kinda take fighting off the table because MAD and use it or lose it. (it being your nuclear arsenal)

    Don't be scared homie, embrace the atom - Nuclear weapons could bring world peace and Nuclear plants zero emissions.

    Imagine believing the Saudis don't already have nukes.

    US foreign policy shouldn't be held hostage by Saudi Arabia. They are basically saying if you stop containing Iran we'll seek nukes. Now Iran isn't even seeking nukes and that's exactly what the JCPOA is designed to constrain. Their message is to keep doing what you're doing. But I think Saudi Arabia is in for some hostile interactions with the US over Yemen and Kashoggi.

    If Saudi pursues nukes then they can be isolated and treated like the pariah that they are.

    Then so does Iran. I fear more proliferation and building better delivery vehicles. We are dealing with religious crazies who believe the real party and fun starts after they die.

    Iran can't build them yet, but they're close.

    Saudi probably just bought some.

    Iran would be a better ally then Saudi Arabia. At least Iran has some guts. SA officials and military are nothing but soft as baby shit cowards.

    Once the world moves off oil then shit places like Saudi Arabia can go back to be irrelevant desert dumps.

    Both are deeply reactionary, but the Saudi Arabian regime is so, so much worse that it's not even funny. Their worldview and posture toward regional and global politics is akin to that of the American Confederacy. The country is run by corrupt plutocrats treating their country like a piggy bank fiefdom and undercutting democracy (political and economic) everywhere.

    This is the issue. SA knows what's happened to every other nation once their oil runs out, and there's no way in hell they are going down that road. Truly scary shit as the day once thought too far away to even mention, creeps ever so close.

    Neither Iran or Saudis should be trusted with Nukes. Its shameless how UN appointed Saudi Arabia as the heads of human rights council when they're one of the worst countries when it comes to violations.

    I'm hoping the good old US war machine takes over Venezuela. Its a Marxist shithole now with mass starvation. Even a US military dictatorship (Puppet government) would be a better option. Its not like the people are getting any benefit from the oil they're sitting on, and the US still has some reputation to keep up so they'll at least feed them. Unlikely, but it seems like a good alternative to relying on these extremist countries that are constantly threatening Nuclear war. Then they can really lay the hammer down without worrying about oil supplies.

    Of course. Saudi backed terrorists have been one of the biggest threats for the US. And what have they done? Kissed their asses. MBS, Trump and Kushner in bed. Scumbags.

    It's just bluster, Saudis will not pursue nukes if we don't attack Iran. We shouldn't fall for this crap, we just keep getting played by everyone, Saudi Arabia, Israel, etc. they all just want us to do their bidding. Fuck em. Let them fight their own wars, guaranteed they won't do shit and will find another alternative to resolving this.

    Id figure they have enough for a low grade 5kt weapon. Today that is not unlikely. I just doubt they have enough uranium and other materials ro build a several hundrend Kilton weapon. And I doubt they have the means to properly launch one. They have essentially no air force and its easier said then done to attach a nuke to a missile.
    Trump before he became president wanted to go after the Saudis for 9/11... then he went soft
    He means its been rumored for years they bought some from Pakistan. Or Pakistan will give them nukes if needed. Its not unrealistic Pakistan is a society run filled with Islamic extremists who pray to Mecca and follow Saudi ideology to a degree..why not help out fellow Muslims?
    Iran would but its beyond the point of repair. I wish the US would just contain these two terrible powers and leave the region. Or something
