Me Too, Me Too
It's the hottest thing in the Middle East - nuclear technology. Israel started it, Saddam tried to get it, Iran is well on its way. Now Jordan has said it wants nuclear "energy" too.
In an interview in Haaretz, Jordan's King Abdullah, shown here in some serious threads, says his country has a hankering to develop peaceful nuclear technology, just like Egypt and Saudi Arabia and every other jumpy Sunni Arab state worried about Iran getting its own peaceful technology first.
Whether King Ab is serious or simply doing his bit to ratchet up the pressure on the US to stop Iran isn't clear.
