Another contributing factor to the upcoming arms race is Iran’s desire to share its technology with its allies. Ayatollah Khamenei was in Khartoum when he said in 2006 that Iran would be willing to share its nuclear technology with Islamic countries. Sudan is now hoping to open a nuclear reactor by 2020 while President Bashir transforms it into a full-fledged Sharia-based state. Agents of Sudan have contacted those that belonged to the Abdul-Qadeer Khan nuclear trafficking ring, as have representatives of Iran, North Korea, Syria, Nigeria and Burma. A U.S. official said “they have propositioned them to get them to come out of retirement.”

Iran’s closest ally, Syria, also has a nuclear program and is likely to be a recipient of Iranian assistance. Its North Korean-designed nuclear reactor that was destroyed by Israel in September 2007 would have been able to make enough plutonium for one or two nuclear bombs per year once fully operational. The Syrian government continues to obstruct the IAEA’s investigation into the purpose of the site and has not provided an adequate explanation for traces of uranium discovered by the agency. Last month, Syria finally agreed to allow the IAEA to visit a fertilizer plant in Homs suspected of being connected to the nuclear program but access is still being denied to other sites. Another site has just been discovered near Damascus that is thought to be related to uranium conversion.

Another possible beneficiary of Iran’s nuclear weapons program is Venezuela. Hugo Chavez has been secretly assisting the Iranian nuclear program, openly discussing the possibility of opening up a “nuclear village” and signing deals related to uranium exploration. In November 2008, an Iranian government company was given permission to mine for gold in Venezuela in an area that also holds one of the largest deposits of uranium on the planet. An Israeli intelligence report alleges that Venezuela is already providing Iran with much-needed raw uranium. Hugo Chavez has talked openly about his desire to start his own “civilian” nuclear program. This would cause immense fear in countries threatened by him like Colombia that could result in a similar domino effect.

The nuclear arms race will even extend into Asia. North Korea is believed to be helping the Burmese junta pursue nuclear weapons and the country could provide Iran with uranium in return for nuclear technology. The Democratic Voice of Burma has obtained a pile of secret documents and photographs exposing the secret nuclear program that is believed to have cost Burma $3.5 billion since 2001. One Burmese defector claims he met with an Iranian nuclear scientist and intelligence officer in February 2004 to discuss transfers of uranium yellowcake. As with Venezuela, this development could also spark a regional nuclear arms race as neighbors like Thailand feel vulnerable.

The affects of a nuclear Iran are hard to fathom. Its Arab enemies are ready to develop, at the least, the capacity for nuclear break-out that enables them to quickly produce weapons. The Iranian regime is unlikely to hold its technology from its allies, broadening the nuclear arms race to other continents. If Iran acquires nuclear weapons or even the capacity to quickly produce them, it won’t change just the Middle East. It will change the world.

    Oh yes….our hand-wringing, temporizing and procrastination over the Iranian bomb will have repercussions that far-transcend Iran itself. Face it folks, once Iran goes nuclear, the proliferation genie is going to be out of the bottle forever. And it's not just the Saudis and Egyptians who will go nuclear. Small states like Qatar and Kuwait will realize the deterrent value of having the bomb. Eventually, non-state actors like Hezbollah and Al Qaeda will acquire it.

  • Amused

    India and Pakistan have had nukes for decades , and occaissionally threaten each other with them . Pakistans top nuclear scientist , Khan went around the middle east , spreading that technology .In Pakistan he's a hero , never arrested , but put under a bogus "house arrest " Pakistan on it's best day , is atleast an enemy of the United states and the west , and a deadly enemy of India , whose Hindus , Pakistan hates . The Sunni /Shia slaughter which has gone on over the millenia , merely takes the next step in the technology of killing each other .Any nation having a nuclear reactor need only take baby steps to produce weapons grade nuclear material . China and Russia have facilitated this situation for various naional agendas of their own . YES , eventually groups like Hezbolla and Al Queda will have limited access to these "end products " of nuclear technology , because the will ALWAYS find sympathizers amongs arab/muslim nations .

    • kim- EAU

      Be serious, I living here in the UAE and here people do not doubt that Iran has the bomb already and it is not our first preoccuaption our concerns are economic, and no one country will go nuclear Because Iran has the bomb, without Mubarak, Egypt sees Israel as the enemy, not iran! Turkey is an ally of Iran ( in the new military doctrine Turkey, Iran is officially withdrawn from the list of hazards, while Israel is considered the first and most important threat to turkey and to regional security ),not of Israel! and other small countries do not have the manpower to go nuclear.
      the context has completely changed since February 11, 2011 no one country will lend its territory for an attack on Iran, because leaders know that if they do,they will end up like Mubarak, ben ali, adballah saleh (soon) khadafy or worse like saddam !
      what happend now in the ME is tsunami " a game changer"

      • Raymond in DC

        Turkey has certainly moved away from the West to Iran and Syria, and even to Hamas over the PA. But Turkey, like Iran, has its own ambitions to be the dominant power in the Middle East. Sooner or later that contest will be out in the open.

      • Amused

        You're quite confused , and it's no surprise , that is living where YOU live . LOOK , there is ONLY one thing arabs and muslims can agree on …and ONLY one thing ……that is ISRAEL , is the enemy which must be eradicated .Egypt has always seen Israel as the enemy , before Mubarak and AFTER Mubarak . Sadat was killewd for making peace with Israel . The slaughters at Luxor and Karm-el Shiek were "because of Israel " , as well a numerous attacks on tourists , and consequently BLAMED on Israel.All arabs and muslims know , that no one need fear Israel , save for those who actively sek her destruction…ahhh but their "brothers " ? With nukes ? Now that's another story , which can bring that ole' sectarian violence to a new level , now THAT'S SERIOUS !!! Imagine SUNNI NATIONS , and their paranoia about SHIA nations having nukes !Now that's an " existential threat " .Even Hindu nations like India , must fear muslim nations with nukes ….like Pakistan , which orchestrate the recent Mumbai Slaughter .

  • KIM EAU

    if Egypt will do the bomb is to counter the Israeli bomb, there is revelation that Mubarak himself has neutered the nuclear program to please the United States while his army wanted the bomb to deal with "the enemy of the north "

    • MixMChess

      Why does Egypt need to "counter" Israel? Israel has never tested, used or threatened the use of nuclear weapons. There is no nuclear threat from Israel. Any nuclear weapons are merely a deterrent to prevent other Arab/Islamic states from attacking Israel. Remember, Israel has called for the creation of a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East and has stated multiple times that it will never use a nuclear weapon first.

      • mohamed – cairo

        do not be stupid man, in egypt we, we asked for a zone free Nuck, but israel has refused and wants to keep the nuclear monopoly. we can no longer accpter this situation of nonsens. now the westerns puppet (moubarak, khadafy, ben ali, abdallah saleh, and soon others) are imprisoned. we the Egyptian's youth will await the arrival of a civilian government, and then we ask the government to protect the people of Egypt against the Israeli nuclear threat and we begin to manifest in the streets for that. and I can assure you that this will happen after 2012. If Israel refuses to throw its nuclear weapons we will launch a huge campaign on facebook to that effect. and you now know the power of the Internet

        • MixMChess

          "… but israel has refused and wants to keep the nuclear monopoly. we can no longer accpter this situation of nonsens."

          Israel did not sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) precisely because the treaty has done nothing to stem nuclear proliferation in the region. Recall, Iraq under Saddam was a signatory to the NPT, and it was able to amass a large amount of nuclear material without the knowledge of the International Atomic Energy Agency prior to the attack on its reactor in 1981. Another signatory to the NPT, Iran, has had a secret nuclear weapons program for more than a decade and now may have a bomb within five. Syria, yet another signatory, recently began a clandestine nuclear program that was stopped by Israel.

          "…we ask the government to protect the people of Egypt against the Israeli nuclear threat and we begin to manifest in the streets for that. and I can assure you that this will happen after 2012."

          Don't be an idiot…. Israel has a peace treat with Egypt. So long as the people and government of Egypt respect that peace they have nothing to fear from Israel. As stated above Israel has NEVER tested, used or threatened any of its neighbors with the use of nuclear weapons. Israel has stated multiple times that it will never use a nuclear weapon first.

          • mohamed – cairo

            no sir, your analysis is wrong Israel has already threatened to use of nuclear weapons (Lieberman, Yitzhak Shamir) and as I said the youth egyptians in 2012 will launch a call for reviving Egypt's nuclear program ….. If Israel does not disarm, I can promise you that Tahrir Square will become the symbol of the nuclearization of israel egypt if derailed the conference on nuclear power in 2012 and we young people will launch cmapagne up on facebook twitter until our futur president, say that "Egypt leaves the NPT"
            and i can promise you it will happend

            @MixMChess

            your analysis of Iran is false, estimates that Iran will obtain the bomb in five years based upon the credit of Dagan (2015), except it has revised publicly to 2014. and its successor speaks about of 2013, all these assumptions were based on the idea that stuxnet had succeeded in destroying Iran's enrichment, but the IAEA has evidence that these allegations are false, even the American research institute confirm stuxnet has failed he destroyed 1000 centrifuges wich were replaced immediately, confirmed by the IAEA. by the way Meir Dagan is known to be opposed to an attack on Iran and prefers the sabotage, and if necessary deterrence against deterrence to war with Iran. by the way Iran has managed to develop centrifuges to second and third generation with carbon rotor built locally, which is a huge game changer! installation on the mountains are invulnerable and poorly localized sites. one can reasonably think that Iran is already a nuclear power, but he will need a little time to militarize a missil

          • MixMChess

            "…no sir, your analysis is wrong Israel has already threatened to use of nuclear weapons (Lieberman, Yitzhak Shamir)…"

            Wrong again, Israel has responded to threats by its neighbors (such as Iraq and Iran) by stating that strikes against Israel will be responded to, but it has never referred to the use of its nuclear weapons. In fact, Mr. Shamir's exact quotes were: "all those who threaten us should know that whoever dares strike Israel will be struck hard and in the most severe way," adding that "…Israel has a very strong deterrent capability." As stated already, Israel has gone on the record stating that it will never use a nuclear weapon first. What don't you get about that?

            If Egypt decides to go nuclear it won't be because of any perceived threat from Israel. As already stated, so long as Egypt honors the 30+ year peace agreement with Israel, they have nothing to fear and could eventually develop into close allies.

          • xyz

            israel threat of unauthorized use regularly nuclear weapons against Iranian bunkers this is not a threat to the region? do you think it is coherent to say "we'lluse a nuclear weapons, to prevent ( try ) a nuclear Iran precisely" it's not a hypocritical nonsense?, I'm sorry but I m'exuse tell you I want to security of my country and I can assure you that we the young Egyptian have an immense power over the political line of our country.
            If Israel refuses to disarm, in 2012 after the conference on the nuclear, we will be millions to tell the next regime "we want the nuclear deterrent" as deterrence against Israeli neighbors

          • MixMChess

            "israel threat of unauthorized use regularly nuclear weapons against Iranian bunkers this is not a threat to the region?"

            You're comment is hardly readable or intelligent. Israel has never threatened Iran with nuclear weapons. What don't you get about that? Israel has stated that it will try to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power, but this never included using nuclear weapons. A nuclear Iran would be a threat to Israel, Egypt and the entire middle east. That is a FACT.

            Israel does not threaten its neighbors. There is no reason for it to sign any NPT.

          • xyz

            I'm egyptcien, therefore does not speak on our behalf, we do not want Israel's nuclear weapons if Israel refuses to give up his nukes, then Egypt will resume its program.
            "israel does not threaten its neighbors. There is no reason for it to sign any NPT"
            Egypt does not threaten its neighbors, so we can leave the NPT as well?

            and you know that xyz is right, even Americans HAWKS like John Macain, Lieberman and his else came up tahrir, after Tunisia and now they support the insurgents Libyan, American doctrine is: the problem is not the bomb, the problem is the regime. and now we are a democracy supported even by the HAWK John McCain. Egypt can go nuclear without any problem, and if Israel tries to stop us we are a country of 85 million inhabitants and powerfully armed, we will give them an answer

Ultimately islam will win as they know how to treat its enemy. We infidel under islam has no life. Wake up or die soon. ISolate islam to win.

  • Raymond in DC

    How curious that the alleged Israeli nuclear arsenal had little impact on the region's nuclear ambitions outside Iraq and Iran. Even Syria's efforts are only a late initiative promoted and funded by Iran. Israel's policy of strategic ambiguity meant there were no overt threats, just a subtle "Don't mess with us" message. Not even Iraqi scuds falling in 1991 were enough to bring the bombs out of the basement.

    It is only Iran, with its overt threats not just against Israel but against its neighbors as well, that has struck fear in the region, because Iran's ambitions are regional.

  • Amused

    Arabs and muslims know they have nothing to fear from Israel …UNLESS THEY ATTACK FIRST ….burt as for their felklow and 'brother " muslims , that's quite a different story . Arabs and Muslims are mot stupid , they know damn well that their own kin , will use nukes against each other .,
    As for ANY Mid-Eastern entity taking a shot at Israel and /or the west ? Well , they'll have about 15 or 20 minutes to savor their act , that's about how long it will take the West or Israel to determine the source by trajectory , and retaliate , at which point the shooters entire country will become smoke and molten glass .
    Then they will be introduced to the REAL GREAT SATAN .

      the lybian et now the syrian's nuclear program have absolutely nothing to do with iran. the egyptian's nuclear program of the 80's has nothing to do with iran. at that time Iran had no prgramme, Mubarak has castrated this program and. in the years to come it is not inconceivable that Egypt's nuclear program resume if Israel does not abandon his nukes, an Egyptian politician and even the Americans have recently not excluded this option. especially in 2012 for the conference on the nuclear,if israel is not an effort to sign the NPT

  • steven l

    One more time the US is on the spot. China and Russia do not care if Iran gets nuke. They both have depth either in the form of land (Russia) or population (China) and each one cares less about democracy. GB and the French are powerless.
    So far the US has decided that madness can proceed in the ME.
    Iran and the Islamo-fascists will rejoice at the idea to die for Allah!
    Of course If Israel intervene, it will be hated forever and thanks in 1000 years for their right and courageous decision.
    The world of human is evil.

    Obama does not seem to realize what is going on!

  • nadia egypt

    why thank israel?do you sincerely believe that Israel can fight iran ? sweet illusion. all the military experts are unanimous, iran will obtain the bomb despite Israeli attack or not, Israel can possibly hope to slow down the program for some months but nothing more, even Robert Gates and Mike Mullen thinks that.
    Of course it is possible that Iran already have nuclear weapons and in this case it would be a suicide to launch in this folly.
    iran is rational, they are dictators but not irrational, even Ehud Barak and natnyahu recognize that the problem is not a nuclear attack from iran, but the loss of nuclear monopoly! and thus the prestige.
    Unfortunately for Israel the time of the nuclear monopoly is finished they must accept it. they have nothing to do, and the United States will not take another three trillion dollars to China for an Israeli concept

    • nadia egypt

      Now our dear dictator Mubarak is on vacation, egypt'll probably revive its nuclear program in the years to come and, not because of iran but because of israel
      and I can assure you that the army supports this idea. Mubarak has only blocked the nuclear Egyptian and our scientists are excellent!

        Just remember little miss EGYPT , Israel has over 100 nukes which will send your entire country to allah . You still haven't gotten over the humiliation of l;osing the wars with Israel ….and you never wilol , it is in your blood .So it is only a matter of time before Egypt initiuates another war with Israel .That's what you have always wanted . The US goives you a BILLION DOLLARS a byear to behave yourselves , a BRIBE to pretend to be peacefull . Yet you still hate Israel , you STILL persecute the Copts .The US sells you arms for DEFENSE due to your paranois of Israel , but these weapons are ALWAYS a notch below what we give Israel If we sell F-16s we sell Israel F-17s , and so on .This is so you may feelsecure to defend against your imaginary enemy , but not enough to overcome . Just keep that in mind before yopu become arrogant again and feel like another war with Israel . And dont think for a minute , that if realistically threatened by Iran , Israel will not hesitate to send your muslim kin to hell where they belong .

    The USA is fiddling while the world is burning. Instead of wasting our time in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya trying to win the hearts and minds of Muhammadans who are obligated to have nothing but enmity in their hearts for unbelievers, the USA should have already destroyed the nuclear weapons programs of Pakistan and Iran. Unfortunately, we will live to rue the day we elected these incompetents.

    • mc leron

      Pakistan to an arsenal of more than 110 HEADS last estimate, and acuellement built a reactor that could provide material for 50 bombs a year !!!!!! there is no credible military option against Pakistan or to assume a total Armageddon, Iran and probably at least a bomb ready to be assembled quickly as the military option does not exist: an invasion impossible or then strikes with questionable effectiveness at least

      • ObamaYoMoma

        That’s right Iran has been using American foreign aid to buildup its nuclear arsenal in anticipation of becoming the nuclear supermarket for the Sunni world, as soon as Iran gets nukes and renders the NPT worthless. However, I disagree, we should create a diversion, invade Pakistan to capture its nuclear sites and destroy its nuclear arsenal and nuclear weapons programs as Muhammadans who are obligated to subjugate the world into draconian Islamic totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia and who are also inculcated cradle to grave to love death more than they love life should never be allowed to possess nukes. The problem is our leaders are either on the take and being paid off to remain blind and stupid, or otherwise totally incompetent.

        • KIM – EAU

          your intervention comes with 25 years late, because Pakistan has nuclear capability since 1985 to the Reagan era. then you can see that claim that muslim's country should never be allowed to own nukes weapons is simply unrealistic, they already have nuclear weapons for a quarter of a century.
          iran the rumor in the Middle East they already have at least one bomb anyway experts estimated that Iran has crossed the threshold scientific end of 2008, when Bush left the White House. there is no need to blame obama Because the nuclearization of Iran has made ​​in the reign of w B

          • ObamaYoMoma

            You really mean telling the truth about Islam according to you and your fellow Muhammadans is racist and never mind the fact that the Islamic world divides the world between believers and unbelievers and then has one set of rules and ethics for believers and a completely different set of rules and ethics for unbelievers. Which is why unbelievers living in every majority Muhammadan country in the world without exception are systematically persecuted and violently oppressed when not outright slaughtered altogether. So stick your nonsense racist allegation up where the sun doesn’t shine, as Islam is the most intolerant dogma on the planet!

            Nah…it is because of Islam. Now no doubt you would like to deceive naïve kafir infidel unbelievers into believing it is because of dictators, but it’s not, it’s because of Islam. And Muhammadans who deem all unbelievers to be subhuman shouldn’t be accusing anyone of being a racist just because they are exposing the truth about Islam, as again Islam is the most intolerant dogma ever invented.

            I hate to rain on your deceitful parade again, but exactly because of Islam, democracy in that part of the world isn’t viable and doesn’t stand a chance, as Islam is a not a religion but instead a very militant theo-political totalitarian ideology. Indeed, Islam is far closer to being a totalitarian ideology like Communism than it is to being a religion, as just like Communism, Islam seeks world domination and the end result of Islam, exactly like Communism, is always totalitarianism. Hence, enjoy living normally as slaves of Allah, as the only freedom that Sharia allows is the freedom for Muhammadans to become more devout slaves of Allah.

    In fact , I would venture to say , that as we speak , there is atleast ONE , well within range of ANY TARGET in the middle east .THE Closer Arab/muslim nations come to producing a nuclear weapon , which poses an existential threat to Israel OR the West , the more likely the military doctine of PRE-EMPTION becomes .Just think of 48 most important cities , or miltary installations destroyed in one half-hour , and that is the capability of JUST ONE SUBMARINE .Dont be so foolish as to think that the west or Israel can do nothing .

  • mc leron

    use of nuclear weapons is not a sign of strength but of weakness that simply proves that the United States lack the conventional power necessary. secondo your reasoning is dated: Pakistan has the bomb since the 80s. Today it has 110 nuclear warheads and the facility to produce more. Iran probably has one already non-operational, but also the know-how!
    attacking nuclears powers ( pakistan, iran )means nuclear war. especially when you think iran and pakistan are allies of the China and Russia!

    consequences of the united states are obliged to help Pakistan to keep a good relationship lol and again lol
    To meet the village idiot who proposes "diversion" to invade Pakistan, let me laugh they are 180 million. the mobilization of only 5% of pakistan people means five million militia they'll throw your soldiers in the sea and you'll swim back to shore. the Indian Ocean is cold all year, but may be the Iranian ships in the region will recover your soldiers lol lol and your soldiers again
