UAE becomes first peaceful nuclear energy operator in the Arab World

The United Arab Emirates announced the successful fuel assembly loading in to Unit 1 reactor at the Barakah nuclear plant. The nuclear plant is located in Abu Dhabi. This also makes the country the first peaceful nuclear energy operator in the Arab World.

Iran should take notes. Nobody cares if peaceful countries develop nuclear energy. Happy for the UAE and I hope their Mars probe goes well too.

Wrong. Canada has been a peaceful nuclear energy operator since the 1950s.

Peaceful? But the bigots in the Newsvoice comment section told me that all Muslims are evil. Almost like they haven't stepped outside of their megachurch for more than 5 seconds.

Peaceful? Sure.... for now. Then we're one Arab Spring away from "Nukes of Peace." Oppressive theocracies should not have access to nukes, except for the ones we drop on them.

This, if it is true and the definition is not twisted, is exactly what I want to see. Support this nation so that all the others can follow. Lead by example and a small minority can be nurtured into a large majority.

And we believe them, why? Oh, yeah. Because they, like us, support ISIS and Al Qaeda. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

With advances in science and comfort of life comes more freedom and hopefully will help to get some backwards religious ideas to go away.

The problem is it’s rather easy to make weapons grade material using equipment to make reactor grade fuel. That being said, I don’t think the UAE has a history of exporting jihadist terrorism, so maybe I’m just worried over nothing.
