So now Obama has announced that the United States will be help the United Arab Emirates develop nuclear power.

One of the points he made is that now American companies are in the running for the construction jobs for the project. Ok, let me get this straight. We trade a chance for jobs in a foreign country in exchange for giving a country with a questionable human rights record access to nuclear technology…technology that could very easily pass to countries that hate us.

There is also concern that sensitive technolgy has a history of passing from the UAE to Iran. Iran is in the process of developing nuclear weapons. This technology is more advanced than theirs and will surely make it easier. Iran has shown they are willing to provide weapons to others by slipping them to terrorists in Iraq. What happens when they slip in a nuke that we helped them develop with technology that we provided to the UAE?
