Six Arab states join rush to go nuclear

Well Earth, we had a good run.

Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, UAE and Saudi Arabia seek atom technology.

Suddenly the "rockets red glare" part of the US National Anthem takes on a whole new meaning.

THE SPECTRE of a nuclear race in the Middle East was raised yesterday when six Arab states announced that they were embarking on programmes to master atomic technology.

The next decade should be an interesting one, and probably the last one as well. Hey, anyone know how to build a bomb shelter?

The move, which follows the failure by the West to curb Iran’s controversial nuclear programme, could see a rapid spread of nuclear reactors in one of the world’s most unstable regions, stretching from the Gulf to the Levant and into North Africa.

One of the worlds most unstable regions? That's putting it gently. I would have wrote, "could see a rapid spread of nuclear reactors in the worlds nucleus of chaos and widespread violence". And the title of this article would have been "World's fucked."
