Jonathan Power asks if Saudia Arabia will be the next country to declare it has nuclear weapons, and the ability to deploy them at long range. They bought Chinese CSS-2 rockets back in the 80’s.
With elections to be held in Saudi in November, the first since 1932, are we seeing attempts to liberalise the regime, in a possible lead up to Saudi becoming a regional nuclear state, together with Israel, India and Pakistan?
Power believes that the US may be turning a blind eye to a Saudi nuclear program. Perhaps this in return for a slight, or more than slight, liberalising of the regime.
