Small quantities protocol

Reader comment on item: Might the Saudis Blow Up Their Oil Infrastructure?

Submitted by Marc Joris (Belgium), May 13, 2005 at 16:34

Is there a link with the Saudis' recent attempt to sign the small quantities protocol? This would seriously limit the IAEA's possibilities for nuclear inspection. Alfred Kohler's remark makes sense. On the other hand, the Saudis' may have reasons to delay the "moment of truth" about their self-destructing devises. A possible crisis would not develop overnight. Remember the long process of decising-making about the war in Iraq. They would have plenty of time to unveil their diabolic preparations. For the moment, they have no reason to do so.
