JD: Should there be a nuclear powered Iran the Saudi Crown Prince says we will get a nuclear weapon of mass destruction as well if Iran does that. That could cause a real battle for powers that control nuclear weapons.
KT: And you know it shouldn’t surprise anybody to hear the Saudi Crown Prince say that. One of the arguments that I and many others were making when the nuclear deal was being negotiated by Obama and John Kerry was that look this is going to lead to proliferation. It’s clearly going to lead to proliferation. It’s going to encourage other countries in the region to go acquire nuclear weapons as well and obviously the first among them is going to be Saudi Arabia.
