It's no secret Saudis, U.A.E, want them. Also both Saudis and UAE already have nuclear power plants. They both also have plenty of money to build them & they are freindsly with countries to buy tech from for such programs.How long before other middle east countries want a nuke too?
The West, Russia, China, and India need nuclear weapons to keep peace between the superpowers & regional powers. Without nuclear weapons there is zero doubt a world war would break out between the superpowers & regional powers. Which a world war with no nukes today would likely be more bloody than a nuclear war itself....sad is that this could of all been prevented if the West and Russia/USSR disarmed most-(not all)-nukes and worked together
