Cracks in Saudi-US relations
By Ted Belman
A few days ago I reported Saudi Arabia stabs US in the back and referred to the Mecca Accords. I am happy to see that US has put the kibosh on the deal, because it doesn’t recognize Israel and Congress has put the kibosh on the $86 million promised to Abbas.
But one word of complaint. The reason given for rejecting the accord is tantamount to tolerating the terror and arming of terrorists. Until they insist in the dismantling of the terror structure, they aren’t serious.
DEBKAfile reports Saudis to purchase nuclear option, advanced missiles and spy satellites off the shelf from Pakistan and Russia
Moscow will assist in Saudi development of a civilian nuclear program and build six “research satellites” for the oil kingdom. DEBKAfile’s Gulf intelligence sources report this was agreed in the Putin-Abdullah talks held in Riyadh earlier this week. Vladimir Putin and King Abdullah. Israeli military sources report that Moscow in fact undertook to provide Saudi Arabia with half a dozen military surveillance satellites, launch them and set up ground control centers.
DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s sources also revealed last month that Musharraf had contracted to make nuclear weapons available to Riyadh in a nuclear emergency.
What gives here.
