Saudi Arabia Exempt From Nuke Inspections By GEORGE JAHN, Associated Press Writer
27 minutes ago



VIENNA, Austria - Board members of the U.N. atomic watchdog agency approved a deal Thursday that exempts Saudi Arabia from nuclear inspections, despite serious misgivings about the arrangement in an era of heightened proliferation fears.

ADVERTISEMENT

Although the Saudis resisted Western pressure to compromise and allow some form of monitoring, the board of the International Atomic Energy Agency had no choice but to allow it to sign on to the agreement.

Called the small quantities protocol, the deal allows countries whose nuclear equipment or activities are thought to be below a minimum threshold to submit a declaration instead of undergoing inspection.

There is little concern the Saudis are trying to make nuclear arms, but diplomats accredited to the meeting said Riyadh's resistance to inspections — and any new deals limiting the IAEA's powers to investigate — were disconcerting at a time of increased fears countries or terrorists might be interested in acquiring such weapons.

With the deal approved, delegates focused on a report on Iran, to be presented later Thursday to the closed board meeting and given ahead of delivery to The Associated Press.

It says Iran has acknowledged working with small amounts of plutonium, a possible nuclear arms component, for years longer than it had originally admitted and receiving sensitive technology that can be used as part of a weapons program earlier than it initially said it did.

The agency has no authority in North Korea, the other main proliferation concern since being kicked out in December 2002. Senior U.S. delegation member Cristopher Ford warned Pyongyang that unless it abandoned "its pursuit of nuclear weapons ... we will have to consult with our allies and partners on other options" — diplomatic jargon for referral to the U.N. Security Council.

The Saudis insist they have no plans to develop nuclear arms — and no facilities or nuclear stocks that warrant inspection.

As such, they qualify for the protocol, which has been implemented by 75 nations, most of them small and in politically stable parts of the world and which puts the onus on the nations to truthfully report that they have nothing to inspect.

But the timing of the deal for the Saudis comes amid persistent tensions in the Middle East and concern about Iran's nuclear ambitions. It also coincides with an agency push to tighten or rescind the protocol, as suggested in a confidential IAEA document prepared for the board and also made available to AP on Tuesday.

While the Saudi government insists it has no interest in nuclear arms, in the past two decades it has been linked to prewar Iraq's nuclear program and to the Pakistani nuclear black marketeer A.Q. Khan. It also has expressed interest in Pakistani missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, and Saudi officials reportedly discussed pursuing the nuclear option as a deterrent in the volatile Middle East.

The Saudis have resisted pressure from the United States, the European Union and Australia to either back away from the small quantities protocol or agree to inspections, as reflected by a confidential EU briefing memo given to the AP earlier this week by a diplomat accredited to the agency who insisted on anonymity because he was not authorized to release it.

It quoted the Saudi deputy foreign minister, Prince Turki bin Mohammed bin Saud al-Kabira, as telling EU officials in Riyadh that his country would be "willing to provide additional information" to the IAEA "only if all other parties" to the protocol did the same.

Diplomats inside Thursday's closed meeting said the Saudis repeated those conditions as part of debate over their deal.

The report on Iran does not prove or disprove that Tehran had weapons ambitions. But its details are significant as the agency tries to piece together the puzzle of nearly 18 years of a clandestine nuclear program first revealed in February 2002.

The IAEA first said that Iran produced small amounts of plutonium as part of covert nuclear activities in November 2003.

The agency has not linked the laboratory-scale experiments to weapons, nor has it done so for other parts of the program — including ambitious efforts to be able to enrich uranium. But it criticized Tehran for not voluntarily revealing its plutonium work and other activities that could be linked to interest in making nuclear arms.

Plutonium can be used in nuclear weapons but it also has uses in peaceful programs to generate power — which is what Iran says is the sole purpose of its nuclear activities.

The document says that while Iran had said its plutonium experiments were conducted in 1993 "and that no plutonium had been separated since then," Iranian officials revealed two months ago that there had been linked experiments in 1995 and 1998.

Focusing on shipments of equipment for uranium enrichment, the report said Tehran earlier this year provided documents showing that in at least two instances some components arrived in 1994 and 1995.

Those dates "deviate from information provided earlier by Iran," said the report, saying one particular delivery had earlier been said to have reached the country in 1997.

Such discrepancies are important as the agency tries to establish how long Iran has been trying to assemble a program for enrichment, which can generate both fuel for power and weapons grade uranium.

The report also outlined discrepancies about when Iranian officials said the first meetings with nuclear black marketeers were.

Me too. Or maybe that head ache is due to something else. Ugh.

Actually I did the same thing. When I was over at the guys house and we had gotten into a huge fight, I had already had a few drinks in my system. So I walked off to my car, a little too quickly. I vaguely remember hitting something with my foot (a tree branch) but I paid no attention to it, got in my car, and left. Well when I got to my house and stepped out of my car into bright light.... I saw that my whole foot was covered in blood! (And my whole floor of my car) Cut myself a little deeper than I thought. I washed it off and kept going on with my night. HAHA!

The thing is, Saudi Arabia is an American ally. Forget the fact that it is probably the most oppressive government in the Middle East (yet for some reason gets praised by Bush for the great strides forward it is making towards democracy ). Forget the fact that it is responsible for spreading fundamentalist wahabbist radicalism around the world (wonder where bin Laden got the idea??). Forget the fact that America is only allied to half the government! The other half of the government (the religious half) hates America as much as bin Laden (and funnily enuf openly supports al-Qaida). Forget the fact that Saudi Arabia funds terrorists. Forget the fact that Saudi Arabia is sitting on top of the biggest oil reserve in the world and the world economy is dependent on that oil supply or even the fact that America needs Suadi Arabia to base its military...actually, maybe there's a clue in that last sentence!!

At least thats one thing I can agree on with the neocons that Saudi Arabia is NOT and should not be an American ally. Unfortunately Bush doesn't agree. Altho there is one thing I should point out (and something alot of neocons have also pointed out) that the reason Saudi Arabia is an ally is because the US is dependent on its oil and dependent on it hosting US military bases for the region. So how would you get around that? Where else could you set up military bases in the region that would lessen your dependency on Saudi Arabia? And where else could you find a shit load of oil to lesses your dependence on the Saudi Arabian supply? Hmmmmmm indeed!

Actually, when interjected somewhere in "BudweiserStellaHeineckenMiller" and spoken out very fast in a noisy bar, it also sounds remarkably like "Budvar", which (unlike Bud Light) is a quite decent beer.

<- me being envious.

Why Budweiser? It's the result of a long chain of unfortunate relations. My problem is that the local beer-pusher requires me to show identification when I go and buy beer. As I'm not a US citizen all I have to show is my passport, and the clerks (except the two transexuals and the young girl?) usually give me a lecture, on how insufficient this ID is, and how they'll let it pass "just this once". So I try not to go and buy beer that often. Hence, when I do go, I tend to stock up well in advance, and thus buy beer in cans, as they weigh much less and I can bring more. And last time I was there, the only beers in cans were Budweiser and Coors Light. The "light"-part tipped the scales in favour of Budweiser.
After having drunk them, I'm starting to wonder if there's such a thing as a worthwhile effort, and I should start going there more often.

Correction. Molson Ice is far worse. 5.9% and just like rat piss.

Molson Golden on the other hand...the bottles have entertaining labels.

You know, I'm kinda wondering how he managed to avoid a definitive answer to a pretty direct question like "do you want a relationship with me or not"...I suppose he has a pretty good potential for becoming a politician

Anyway, what's that Iraq Saudi whatever topic doing here? We're supposed to talk about drinking and hurting ourselves while being drunk here, it is the chillout part of the forum, right?
