Bush Dealt Nuclear Technology to Iran's Friendly Neighbors and Helped 10 Other Arab Countries Go Nuclear thru the IAEA

Thanks to DP user freelea2 who commented on my last post, George Bush Blocked Israeli Air Strike Against Iranian Nuclear Facilities, Cited Blowback & Blockage of Strait of Hormuz, which gave me a great lead.

Bush Signs Nuclear Deal with United Arab Emirates - Lou Dobbs

To show the UAE is a friendly trading partner with Iran:

In Dubai, which has close trade ties with Iran, ruler Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum broke ranks somewhat with his Gulf allies by suggesting the world listen closer to Iran's claims about not seeking nuclear arms. Associated Press, 2011

In relevant news, the Bush administration through the IAEA endorsed assisting several other Middle Eastern countries with nuclear technology, a questionable policy considering many candidates for the Republican Nominee propagandize about an Arab Spring. One could suggest that arming your enemy and then getting upset because your enemy has arms is a laughable foreign policy.

The newly interested states include Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, Yemen and the seven sheikdoms of the United Arab Emirates — Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Al Fujayrah, Ras al Khaymah, Sharjah, and Umm al Qaywayn.

“They generally ask what they need to do for the introduction of power,” said R. Ian Facer, a nuclear power engineer who works for the I.A.E.A. at its Vienna headquarters. The agency teaches the basics of nuclear energy. In exchange, states must undergo periodic inspections to make sure their civilian programs have no military spinoffs." New York Times, 2007

The Bush Administration also dealt nuclear technology to India.

Just some food for thought and ammo for debating the "I like Ron Paul, except for his foreign policy" crowd.

Cheers!

people love the soundbites

When someone says "I like ron Paul except for his foreign policy", I want to reply "Oh? What is his stance on foreign policy?" I wouldn't win any new supporters, but I sure get tired of people who outsource their thought process to others.

So we trust...

So we trust the United Arab Emirates that they will use the technology responsibly, but we do not trust them when they tell us their neighbor Iran is not using the technology for weapons? I think both are wrong...the UAE will use the technology irresponsibly and Iran is developing nuclear weapons...as a deterrent of course.

We should sell it

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

Wait -- we? As in the federal government

selling munitions on the global market? If the government properly were only involved in defense, why would it be engaging in sales that easily lead to foreign entanglements?

Sure we should sell it

IF they choose to buy it from us!

If you believe in free market and several Nations have the materials you need then how can we force them to only buy from our companies? We cannot of course.

And if we are so worried that other Nations may not be forthcoming and might actually sell them something we wouldn't then maybe we shouldnt be pushing nuclear power as the answer to the supposed oil supply peak answer/alternative energy solution in the first place?

Maybe with all of the science and resources we have blown on wars we could have easily come up with better alternatives (and I dare say we have by now) but it is just to "rich" to stay in the war stirring control/slavery pot?

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

This is too rich !
I've been wondering who pays the light bills at the IAEA.
The UN, tool of the banksters, as always.

Dr. Paul

just needs to restate history. The argument for peace is how we all survived until now and it is how we must conduct ourselves if we are not to destroy ourselves in the future.

ruskies aint muslim

that's what the neocons have been trained to think.
They have adapted.
Change your phase setting.
Point out the inconsistencies in a mocking way, and enjoy seeing the mental acrobatics of neocons.

Interesting info.This

Interesting info.

This suggests that the entire rationale for the propaganda assault on Iran is a fake pretext.

Let it not be said that we did nothing.-Ron Paul
Stand up for what you believe in, even if you stand alone.-Sophia Magdalena Scholl

Yeah...

There is a lot of information to digest here. I'm still trying to think this through, but it would make sense that passing off nuclear technology to the UAE knowing the possibility of them transferring it to Iran, only to later come back and say, "see Iran is seeking nuclear technology" would be a strategy that fits nicely with other shenanigans in our Middle East foreign policy.

Glad this was helpful!

I have been arguing with neo-cons for years that this info was out there and still they refused to accept it. It made no sense that we would declaring wars with the ultimate goal of Iran when secretly working to give them all nuke energy permissions anyway.

The only conclusion is that we want the CONTROL over their nuke programs and if we don't get it then we will ruin them or destroy their programs.

This is the same as we did by selling them all of their weapons including WMD programs and then going after them for having such!

Plus our corporations are instilling themselves into the treaties asking to be inserted as the sellers of the product to these countries. The congress then votes for it in the name of improving "more jobs" for Americans. Sure, especially when we have to go in militarily and take them out when they suddenly don't like our demands later!

What a scam.

Until these countries are allowed to evolve (without our intervention) into truly self regulating free markets and moral societies in their own right, we will never be able to force them to respect or like us or accept our DOMINATION and occupations or any such "ownership" of their resources/minds towards freedom or liberty.

Good find.
