Saudi Arabia, the source of 19 of the 9/11 hijackers and ground zero for Sunni extremism, is being fast tracked for American nuclear technology. And there seems to be an effort by the administration to bypass Congressional oversight and approval as required by law.
We pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal unilaterally and now trying to let the Saudis have a go at developing their own nuclear capabilities. Iran might as well ramp up again since we left the deal.
That could mean 4 nuclear nations in the Middle East- Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Israel- 3 of whom relish martyrdom and some form of Armageddon among the extremists. India is in the mix but I think cooler heads prevail there even though they are in a low level border conflict with Pakistan.
My concern is why the administration is seeming to try an end run around Congress. And if so, is it trying to cut some deals for favored American companies? All this at the very real threat of a nuclear conflict in an area of the world with lots of people willing to blow themselves to pieces in a marketplace to kill those who disagree on religious differences.
