I think Russia is going to be the next big problem, apparently things never really cooled down after 1991 in the first place, it just dropped out of the news.

Russia is dead and gone.. they can try whatever but they are no threat anymore.

There was a talk during the clinton years that the USA is encouraging Sauds to buy Nukes from pakistan. That was a way to disarm pakistanis. The strategy was to sqeeze the forex Pak has to such an extent that the only source they would have would be to sell the nukes to an "islamic state".. but in turn, USA would take charge of those weapons and do whatever it feels like to secure it off.. This was the idea.. dunno if that is coming into play now or if it is genuine interest to get the nukes by the sauds for themself. Think about it, they really do not have any overt enemies.. and if any, all can be squeezed by just starving them off oil. So I will let the jury decide on this.

I have some mates who used to work in the navy in the 1990s who say different.

And apparently we in the UK have had to repeatedly chase away Russian spy planes from our coasts with our own fighter jets recently.

Goddammit GS. You made me look at a New York Post link. My brain now needs a shower.

I heard about this a couple of days ago. Basically the Saudis are nervous about an Iran that the world doesn't hate any more. In general I'm not super surprised here - I think if anybody really needed to buy a nuke and had a ton of money, it wouldn't have been too hard to bribe ex-Soviet scientists and/or military personnel in the '90s. Having nuclear weaponry doesn't mean a whole lot without the means to transport it anyway.

Anyway, nuking people is so 20th century. The new way to world dominance is to make the whole world dependent on your money. See: USA and China.

He meant a "queen" ... like karan johar for example. Hillary is an insult to trousers.
