Saudia Arabia has rolled big cash into Pakistan’s nuclear weapons program and the assumption is, Saudi will go nuclear when it chooses to go nuclear and Pakistan will deliver the necessaries, sooner rather than later. There are reports that Saudi Arabian launch pads are already in existence pointing to Israel and Iran – or are the paths to destruction leading solely to Israel?
Earlier this year, a senior Nato decision maker told me that he had seen intelligence reporting that nuclear weapons made in Pakistan on behalf of Saudi Arabia are now sitting ready for delivery.
Last month Amos Yadlin, a former head of Israeli military intelligence, told a conference in Sweden that if Iran got the bomb, “the Saudis will not wait one month. They already paid for the bomb, they will go to Pakistan and bring what they need to bring.” Source: The Guardian
If you look at the graphic below, the two bottom, left side photos are of launch pads. The first caption reads:
An 80 m diameter concrete pad, this location appears aligned on a bearing of approximately 301 degrees, suggesting an Israeli target.
The bottom graphic reads:
A second 80 m launch pad is oriented along an azimuth of approximately 10 degrees, ostensibly situated to target Iranian locations.
The supposed weapons are aimed not at Iran but at anyone else who may threaten its interests. Urban said “unnamed Pakistanis opined that “it is logical for the Saudis to step in as the physical ‘protector’ of the Arab world by seeking nuclear weapons, according to one of the State Department cables posted by Wikileaks.”
