Until now, countries, the likes of Saudi Arabia, were reluctant to embark on a nuclear enrichment program, for two reasons. Firstly, they did not feel the urgent need for such a program. Secondly, and more importantly, they feared the backlash and ire they would face if they were to embark on such a program.
However, now that President Obama has officially authorized Iran's nuclear enrichment program, both of the aforementioned reasons are obsolete.
Countries the likes of Saudi Arabia, now believe they must initiate their own nuclear programs to counter the Iranian nuclear program that has been officially endorsed and authorized by President Obama - a program they once believed would be stopped. Moreover, they no longer fear the ire or the potential backlash from launching their own nuclear enrichment programs because President Obama has officially authorized and given the green light to all interested parties to launch their own enrichment programs.
Hence, the Times-UK reported on Sunday that:
A senior member of Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family has warned of nuclear proliferation throughout the Middle East if Iran retains key elements of its atomic program under a deal with the West.Yep, sadly it is Obama who is guilty of triggering a nuclear avalanche.
Prince Turki al-Faisal said that Arab countries would demand the right to enrich uranium if, as expected, Iran is allowed to pursue a civil nuclear energy program... The kingdom's former spy chief questioned whether Iran's nuclear ambitions has truly changed.
