Saudi Arabia announced it will seek Nukes if Iran does.

Al Arabia:

Saudi Arabia will seek to develop its own nuclear weapons if Iran does, Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told CNN on Wednesday, amid spiraling tension between the regional rivals.

Asked whether Riyadh would “build a bomb itself” if Tehran seizes on Washington’s withdrawal from the 2015 Iran deal to resume a nuclear weapons program, Jubeir said: “If Iran acquires nuclear capability we will do everything we can to do the same.”

Saudi Arabia has long said it would match any Iranian weapons development, but Jubeir’s renewed vow came after US President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of an accord designed to prevent Tehran’s alleged quest for the bomb.

And it came amid growing tension over Iran’s support for the Houthi rebels in Yemen, who have been firing rockets across the border.

Riyadh, which is part of a regional coalition that intervened in Yemen’s civil war to fight the Houthis, accuses Iran of supplying the militia with ballistic missiles.

“These missiles are Iranian manufactured and delivered to the Huthis. Such behavior is unacceptable. It violates UN Resolutions with regards to ballistic missiles. And the Iranians must be held accountable for this,” Jubeir told CNN.

“We will find the right way and at the right time to respond to this,” he warned. “We are trying to avoid at all costs direct military action with Iran, but Iran’s behavior such as this cannot continue. This amounts to a declaration of war.”

Saudi Arabia supported Trump’s ending of the Iran Deal due to the fact Iran continued to finance terror across the globe even after the deal was made.

  1. Iran has finally pushed the West too far, much like Hitler’s invasion of Poland which united the Allies to fight the Nazis to the destruction of Germany. Iran was dealing with the 2008-2016 version of the 1939 pacifist appeaser Chamberlain, that is, Obama, and now he has to face a fighter like Trump who will unite the sane Judeo/Christian West with the sane parts of the Arab world to put an end to Iran’s megalomaniac ambitions and will probably have to destroy Iran to do so.
