  • The presence of American firms would likely be welcomed by the Saudis and should also be welcomed by the U.S. government, according to Stuart Jones, regional president for Europe and Middle East at Bechtel.

  1. I hate to say this but, it is probably true. I think there will be another nuclear accident somewhere, in the next five years. Whether it is in belgium, ukraine, california, iran, korea, pakistan, on the east or gulf coast of the usa, in the old rotten fermi reactor, in the rotten flamanville reactor, in france, from another earthquake in stupidville japan, in russia. It is people have not learned from 75 years of nuclear accidents and catastrophes, even after the ongoing supermess of fukushima. If another bad meltdown occurs, the saudis, even as stupid as they are now, may not be so keen on 15 new reactors. Crazy radiation releases, seem to be getting worse across europe.
