Well hopefully Obama blocks the deal. The UAE is able to meet the energy demand it is facing by using renewable energy; it's a very small country. Really sounds like their nuclear initiative is more on the propaganda/sensationalist side rather than to meet "urgent" energy demands. Moreover, the UAE is too too close of a US ally, with intertwined interests, for them to turn backs and deal with UK, France and Japan for example.
Hopefully Obama uses the UAE as a model business hub for renewable energy.
