Nukes in Arab countries?

Reader comment on item: "Six Arab States Join Rush To Go Nuclear"

Submitted by Romesh Chander (United States), Dec 25, 2006 at 22:05

So, now Arabs have 2 enemies -- Iran and Israel. After so many wars, they have not been able to defeat tiny Israel. Will they be able to defeat Iran which, after the demise of Iraq, is becoming a powerhouse in the Middle East. Who knows, Iranian nukes may go haywire and hit Mecca and Medina; that will be the end of Islam -- both Sunni and Shiite.

After a few years (say 25-30 years), when Middle East almost runs out of oil, no western country will have any interest in the Middle East and the Arabs.

It is my understanding that Saudis have already 'bought' nukes from Pakistan and delivery system from North Korea!!
