I've Been Thinking:
For the past few months Egypt has been advancing a plan to go nuclear.
Now Egypt has now decided to drop the plan.
Why the change?
First, because the United States has brought an enormous amount of pressure on Egypt not to go nuclear.
Second, because the cost of starting a nuclear program is significantly greater than Egypt had anticipated.
This is very good news for the West, it means that Egypt will be very upset when Iran becomes nuclear ready.
Speaking of Iran, the Arab League recently passed a resolution underscoring that all of members have the right to develop nuclear energy.
So what is Egypt to do?
Now Egypt will improve their old, small, experimental nuclear reactor.
Now Egypt will pro-actively step forward to help stop Iran from becoming a nuclear powerhouse.
