Now I’m really confused. Their next door neighbor, Iran, is claiming that is all they are making, but we do not believe them. Nor should we. However, I have just read in al Sabah News that Iraq is making agreements with Egypt to help them facilitate nuclear power plants.
Cairo, Dec.3, p.1: Electricity minister declared of tenders to erect nuclear plants to generate electricity power.
He said in a statement during his current visit to Egypt that his ministry agreed with its Egyptian equivalent ministry to make use of the Egyptian experience in developing the Iraqi staff in erecting gas power plants. He added that he invited the Egyptian private companies to erect power plants specially those which contributed in erecting the Egyptian plants, besides the nuclear plants erection that Egyptians went in advanced phases ahead in this field.
Unfortunately I do not read or speak Arabic, so I do not know who wrote this article. I will let you take some time to see if you have the same reaction I am having.
What reaction am I having? I do NOT like it! Then again, it would be a force against Iran. Then again, it would be a force against their own people should democracy fail. There’s also the possibility that the Iraqi government could be overrun by AQ. But on the other hand, we could always be grateful for another ally in the Middle East. But could we be sure they are an ally? Do you see my confusion?
I want to believe they are an ally, but I must remember those wise words from President Reagan: “Trust, but verify.” *sigh*
May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
