    Why Is Bush Helping Saudi Arabia Build Nukes?

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121305642257659301.html

    Why I posted this is because part of Obama's foreign policy is to stop carrying out practices that are self-destructive in the long term. As in we had Saddam to counter Iran but we removed him at great expense and now have a bigger Iran problem. I'm not yet ready to back Obama ... but even the most blinded homer must admit we do some really dumb sh!t at times. Obama's foreign policy is too big to put here ... perhaps it will need to be split up ... but it is interesting and at the very least something the nation needs to discuss.

    An excellent question................ another severe LAPSE in judgement. Not happy about this one. I can think of a few reasons for doing so....... None of them any good.

    Condi Rice commenting on her job description as National Security Advisor for President Bush. "I took the Presidents thoughts, and helped the president describe what he was thinking."
    Letting her go to Saudi Arabia in her new position may not be a good idea.

    Anybody that needs help describing what he is thinking should not be in office.

    When we do this isn't there always an agreement in place that prevents the country we help from making weapons grade uranium or plutonium, and a US-based verification process to ensure that happens (like our people physically in the plants to monitor)?

    Any link or anything to Obama's foreign policy where he talks about this? (not doubting, just want to see what he says) Also how can you even know what is self-destructive in the long term? When you get involved in foreign policy you never know what's going to turn out hurting or helping. Obama wants to continue to be involved in other countries' affairs, and some things he does may seem helpful at first, or be in our interest at the time, but turn out to be bad choices in the end. Its a good argument for staying out of other people's business more often than not, even with good intentions we seem to end up costing ourselves sometimes.

    Funny, how some act as if we should be afraid of someone like Obama after we've just survived the most frightening US president in history.

    I find it a tad amusing to say the least:rolleyes:

    Well Al Queda also has overthrowing the House of Saud as one of it's ambitions, so it would be a stretch to say they are sponsoring AlQueda.

    Not that I view the Saudi's as our friends.

    There were 27 pages regarding Saudi Arabia and 9/11 that the White House refused to let the 9/11 Commission see. A Saudi diplomat in the United States had financial ties to the hijackers in San Diego. Saudi Arabia had more ties to the terrorists then Iraq, and that is a fact. But hey, lets not stop that from building a nuclear reactor for them, besides, I don't think any of their neighbors would object.
