Karl, about regional conflicts, Debka reported that Saudi Arabia has bought at least two nuclear weapons from Pakistan. I think this is true, it is in line with past Saudi actions. It should stabilize the Middle East for a while, as Tehran won't be able to play nuclear blackmail until they have a lot more than two devices. In addition, it probably means Pakistan has stopped actively helping the Iranian nuclear weapon program. It also means Iran will be desperate to speed its program and will be able (or forced) to buy a lot more from North Korea. Depending on how serious the US efforts to stop the NorK nuclear exports are, this could either cool down or heat up the situation in the Korean peninsula.
