We’re Making a Nuke Pact With THEM?!: US Giving Jordanian Palis Nuke Tech (Will Use Against Israel, West)
I was up in arms about the Bush Administration push to share our nuclear technology and nuclear security info with the United Arab Emirates. Now, Barack Hussein Obama wants to do the same with Palestinian-dominated Jordan. It’s the same difference . . . and probably even worse.
Now, you might say, “Well, Jordan is a moderate Muslim nation, our ally, and we’re friendly with King Abdullah.” Um, think again. Jordan is a HOTBED of Islamic terrorism and extremism.
Jordan is where a lot of Al-Qaeda and Palestinian Islamic terrorism is planned and based. The list is a Who’s Who: Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi . . . a Palestinian from Zarqa, Jordan; Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal Al-Balawi . . . a Palestinian, who hung out in Jordan, and recently blew up eight men at a CIA base, including seven CIA operatives. And the list goes on and on and on. Plus, there are all those Al-Qaeda bombings in Jordan, like the homicide bombing at a wedding.
Don’t forget that roughly 90% or more of Jordanians are actually Palestinian Muslims . . . Palestinian Muslims who fomented the violent riots that resulted in 10,000 of them being killed in Black September in 1970, when they had an uprising against King Hussein and tried for the umpteenth time to assassinate him. And poll after poll after poll shows that Jordan is among the most anti-American, pro-Bin Laden, pro-homicide bombing countries. There is very little difference between much of Jordan and Gaza, and in fact, Jordan is often used as a base for weaponry and supplies for terrorism against Israel launched from Gaza.
And with a majority of Palestinian subjects ruled by a minority Hashemite king, Jordan isn’t all that stable. Ultimately, it could be taken over by Palestinians and is actually the real Palestinian State. If that happens, guess whose nuke info will be in Palestinian terrorist hands? Ours, that’s whose. Jordan recently discovered uranium ore, and will develop nuclear weapons that could ultimately be very easily used against its neighbor, Israel.
And yet we are gonna share our nukes and nuke technology with them? Pure lunacy to do so.
Jordan is in advanced talks with the Obama administration to conclude a civilian nuclear-cooperation agreement with the U.S., according to Jordanian and U.S. officials.
Successful completion of the negotiations would make Jordan the second Arab state in less than a year, following the United Arab Emirates, to secure nuclear assistance from Washington. Any pact would constitute an international treaty and need the approval of Congress.
The talks come as Iran is accelerating its production of nuclear fuel, raising the prospect of an expanding nuclear-arms race in the Middle East.
An accord with King Abdullah II’s government in Amman would allow U.S. firms to transfer nuclear equipment, fuel and expertise to Jordan, which is one of only two Arab countries to have signed a peace agreement with Israel.
President Barack Obama has pledged to assist developing nations in pursuing civilian nuclear-power programs in exchange for guarantees they won’t seek to produce atomic bombs.
Yeah, good luck with enforcing that. Idiocy.
U.S. officials cite the cooperation agreement signed with the U.A.E. last year as a model for the peaceful development of nuclear power. Under the deal, Abu Dhabi provided assurances it won’t seek to enrich uranium on its soil. The technologies required to process uranium ore into nuclear fuel also can be used to produce weapons-grade materials.
Absurd. Meanwhile, the UAE continues to be the shipping point of nuke technology and components to Iran. Those assurances are a bunch of camel dung.
A potential stumbling block in the Jordan-U.S. deliberations, according to participants, is whether Amman will follow the U.A.E.’s lead and provide guarantees that it won’t enrich uranium domestically. The U.A.E., under the terms of its pact with Washington, could demand a renegotiation if another Middle Eastern country secures a nuclear-cooperation agreement with the U.S. under terms more favorable than Abu Dhabi’s.
Jordan’s agreement could face hurdles in Congress if Amman doesn’t approve a zero-enrichment clause. “If Jordan wants to enrich … then the U.A.E. would also have the right to renegotiate,” said a congressional aide working on nuclear issues. “This situation threatens to touch off a lot of regional tension, and we would oppose.”
PUH-LEEZE. King Abdullah–a Napoleonic short man, forced to share a border with tough Jews who have the juice–wants the juice, too. He’s going to develop nuclear weapons, period. Any “assurances” to the contrary are less valuable than soggy falafel. And ultimately, those nukes will be in the wrong hands. Sooner or later, the Palestinians will take over Jordan. Maybe not in five or ten years, but ultimately. And then, they’ll have nukes.
Jordanian officials have stressed publicly the peaceful nature of their nuclear program and said Amman is willing to ship its substantial uranium-ore deposits to third countries for processing into nuclear fuels. Jordan is also coordinating closely with the United Nations nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, to put security safeguards in place.
Yeah, right. The IAEA? You trust Mohammed El-Baradei and his ilk to stop Jordan from getting nukes and using ‘em against Israel? Then, I have some land in the Jordan River to sell you.
And here’s the money quote:
Still, Jordan is wary of cutting a deal with the U.S. that would surrender its rights to enrich under terms of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Like other Middle Eastern countries, Jordan doesn’t want to undermine a pre-existing multilateral treaty.
“We’re confident we can complete the agreement in the near term,” said Jordan’s ambassador to Washington, Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein.
Translation from Arablish to English: We’re confident we can sign a worthless piece of baloney with the stupid Yankees, soon. And then it’s on to ultimately microwaving the Jews. Soon, Eilat will be ours.
Jordan sought to complete the nuclear-cooperation agreement with the Bush administration in 2008, but ran out of time, according to officials involved in the talks. The Obama administration called for a renegotiation of the pact to insert assurances outlined in the U.A.E.’s deal.
Like “The Who” said: New boss same as the old boss. Unfortunately, we continue to get fooled again.
The State Department’s top official on nonproliferation issues, Undersecretary Ellen Tauscher, visited Amman in December to discuss the agreement, U.S. and Jordanian officials said. Jordanian negotiators are expected in Washington in the coming months to resume the discussions.
A spokesman for Ms. Tauscher declined to discuss the status of the talks Tuesday. “We continue to work with our Jordanian colleagues to conclude an…agreement,” the official said.
Translation: a lefty career politico had a nice exotic vacation sipping fruit drinks and eating halal shawarmeh at the king’s desert oasis, while she engaged in academic double-speak with her Arabic buddies and negotiated the giveaway of America’s nuclear secrets.
King Abdullah announced in 2007 a program to develop nuclear technologies as a means to secure Jordan’s energy independence. Jordan imports virtually all of its petroleum supplies from neighboring Arab states, and the country is facing severe water shortages. Jordan also has a rapidly growing population that has been swollen by an influx of Iraqi refugees since the U.S.’s 2003 toppling of Saddam Hussein.
Um, yeah, PALESTINIAN Iraqi refugees. That’s who they are. They were protected by Saddam, and when he went down, they came to Jordan. “Energy independence,” my butt. This is all about developing nuclear weapons.
Another money quote:
Amman is hoping to use its vast supplies of recently discovered uranium ore to fuel a clutch of nuclear reactors by the end of this decade. Jordan’s government also seeks to use the uranium to power desalination plants that can produce potable water from the sea.
“Jordan is 96% dependent on importing petroleum,” said Prince Zeid. “Our uranium assets give us the hope that we won’t be entirely energy dependent on other nations in the future.”
Yup, they have the uranium. And now Uncle Sam will help ‘em develop it into a way to drive Israel (and even America) to doomsday.
Brilliant. Can you imagine us giving our nuke tech to Mussolini? The Albanian SS Unit? Same difference here.
Alhamdillullah [Praise allah]. America is even more stupid than we thought.
