next, please

Tragically, I'm afraid that no matter which way we cut it, short of full scale invasion and permanent occupation of Iran, there is no way to physically prevent the eeevil Mullahs from developing their own nuclear weapons arsenal within the next 5-7 years. It is within US, Russian and European power however to initiate a region-wide strategic de-escalation, which must begin with China and India, with the goal of engendering a virtuous cycle of non-armament, non-proliferation and safeguards on enrichment, if not actual disarmament in the short term.

I know that President Bush and Secretary Rice can do this, and will dedicate their every effort to this end for the closing three years of the Bush presidency. The stakes are too high for further scaremongering or distraction.

Ha ha ha! Just kidding!

Saudi Arabia is working secretly on a nuclear programme, with help from Pakistani experts, the German magazine Cicero reports in its latest edition, citing western security sources.

Cicero, which will appear on newsstands tomorrow, also quoted a US military analyst, John Pike, as saying that Saudi bar codes can be found on half of Pakistan's nuclear weapons "because it is Saudi Arabia which ultimately co-financed the Pakistani atomic nuclear programme".

The magazine also said satellite images prove that Saudi Arabia has set up in al-Sulaiyil, South of Riyadh, a secret underground city and dozens of underground silos for missiles.

According to some western security services, long-range Ghauri-type missiles of Pakistani-origin are housed inside the silos.
