Saudi Arabia Planning Nuclear Strategy

“Iran’s army is so mighty today that no enemy can have a foul thought of invading Iran’s territory,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday during an annual army parade.

But not to worry, this diminutive but grandiose, flamboyant leader added: “Of course, Iran is a friend and brother of regional and independent nations and it wants peace, progress and security for all countries.” (I guess ‘all countries’ means – after they wipe Israel off the map!)

As if on cue, the United States Undersecretary of Defence Policy told a press briefing in Singapore, “Military force is an option of last resort. It’s off the table in the near term.”

Heaven help anyone who is holding their breath waiting for any sensible action, to impede or delay the Iranian progress. (Breath now, before you turn green or red or worse!)

If I, and millions of others, feel frustrated by the drawn out, spineless and dithering approach to Iran, be encouraged. Saudi Arabia feels that way too! Saudi Arabia have announced a renewable energy complex to be established in Riyadh at The King Abdullah City for Nuclear and Renewable Energy. Analysts have concluded the Saudi decision is based on mounting concerns they face from a nuclear Iran.

Writing for Arutz Sheva (Israel) Michael Freund said, “As the Financial Times notes, the Saudis now join a growing list of Arab countries – which includes Egypt, Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates – that is looking to develop nuclear energy, ostensibly for peaceful purposes.

“I don’t know about you, but the thought of the Wahabi regime in Saudi Arabia going nuclear just does not make it any easier for me to sleep at night,” he said.
The thought of the Arab world nuking up is enough to cause many to think of anything else but reality. I mean Obama-Clinton decided to make the big issue of the day building houses in Jerusalem. That saved them from thinking about building bombs in Iran.
Basically, grave concern is aroused because of militancy from within Sunni-Shia Moslem factions. Sunni nations including Saudi Arabia have watched the unhindered progress of Shi’ite Iran.

The Saudis have decided time is critical and judging by their decision they are taking positive action before their worst-case scenario is upon them.

Up until now, the world’s biggest oil producer was happy to look to the USA for military protection. Apparently their confidence is not what it used to be.

That fact is simple. If the region bubbled like New Zealand hot springs before, it’s smoldering with volcanic potential today.

The Mehdi Army

Alarm bells are ringing in Iraq where Iranian influence will become a Middle East nightmare in the very near future. That scenario is shaping to be a certainty rather than a possibility.

The radical Iraqi Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr has called on his military wing, the Mehdi Army, to aid the national security forces in action against militant attacks. Al-Sadr issued his instructions from Iran where he remains for the moment. He expressed concern, and instructed the Mehdi Army to protect Shiite shrines and Shiite citizens.

Right now in Iraq Shiite and Sunni factions are in a power struggle to form the next government. I would suggest, whatever faction loses, will swing immediately into aggressive political and military offensives, to undermine and destablize the situation.

One thing Sunni nations in the Middle East know, Iran will support the Shiites. If Iran is allowed to use a nuclear threat, the outcome seems obvious, even horrendous.

The Middle East is teetering on the brink of broad violence; the 58 dead in various bomb blasts in Baghdad last week – and the scores killed and wounded there recently – represent tragic proof of deteriorating conditions.

Imagine the chaos when the US troops depart Iraq, and the Mehdi Army is revived with influential support from Iran?

Several intelligence sources have noted Iran has developed Hizbullah and even Hamas, so they can create crisis situations to broaden any future frontline activity.

Confrontation with Iran will spread through Syria and Lebanon, through Hizbullah and Hamas, into Israel through the same terrorist gangs, while the Mehdi Army stirs the Iranian ambitions in Iraq.

Meanwhile US envoy George Mitchell continues the reckless Obama plan to force Israel into peace talks with Middle East terrorists who openly enjoy Iranian support.

Michael Freund spoke for both of us at the end of his Arutz Sheva article. “It may of course already be too late to prevent this trend from spreading. But in either event, it is time that Washington realize the damage it is doing to its own interests by allowing Iran to continue with its mad dash to build nuclear weapons. The sooner the Tyrant of Tehran is stopped, the safer all of us will be.”
There is another lesson that sooner or later we will all have to face.
There was a time when God spoke to him, Moses had to descend from the mountain top. He came from that awesome experience only to find his people had surrendered to idolatry.
We may be approaching that moment when the answer to world peace is not the USA or nuclear weapons.
Man has reached a time in history when nations can destroy nations with a push of a button.

Last week a friend sent me a prophecy which was delivered in Jerusalem by Lance Lambert. In part the word said: “ Remember that in Me you have peace but in the world tribulation. Trust Me! I am shaking all things so that which cannot be shaken may remain. When all your circumstances become abnormal, discover in Me your peace, your rest and your fulfillment.”
In there, lies the power to save, inspire and deliver.
