Well-informed sources who are close to this story tell me “the Saudis just straight up don't trust the Obama administration any more.” Oh, almost forgot. Did you hear the one about the Saudi airliner that landed in Israel (“for maintenance”)? See for yourself, it’s hilarious!

Saudi Arabia Considers Nuclear Weapons to Offset Iran
As a deal to curb Tehran’s nuclear program nears, Iran’s regional rivals feel vulnerable
By YAROSLAV TROFIMOV
RIYADH—The nuclear deal that the U.S. and other world powers hope to reach with Iran would put a 10-year curb on the Islamic republic’s nuclear program. For some of Iran’s regional rivals, that is also becoming a deadline for developing nuclear arms of their own.
In Saudi Arabia, there are widespread public calls to match Iran’s nuclear quest. The two other Middle East heavyweights, Turkey and Egypt, could also feel compelled to follow suit, senior Western and Arab officials warn.
Such an arms race would further destabilize what is already the world’s most volatile region, where the risks of a nuclear war would be compounded by the threat of radioactive material falling into the hands of terrorist groups.
Obama's policies would be worthy of a Monty Python skit were they not vectoring all of us toward an apocalyptic endgame.
A nuclear arms race in the Middle East?
How's that Mitt Romney vote looking now, dimwits?
