THE QUESTION IS WHY WE ALLOW THE CHICOMS AND RUSSIANS TO MAINTAIN NUKES:

Report Sets Stage For Action on Iran: U.N. Nuclear Agency Provides Evidence Needed to Open Security Council Debate (Molly Moore and Dafna Linzer, April 29, 2006, Washington Post)

In a sharply worded report, the International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed Friday that Iran is accelerating its uranium enrichment efforts and hiding crucial information about its nuclear program. The report opens the way for the U.N. Security Council to debate potential actions against Iran.

The Vienna-based U.N. nuclear monitoring agency said serious gaps in the information provided by Iran made it impossible "to provide assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear materials and activities" or to assess the role of the Iranian military in the nuclear work.

The eight-page report provided official evidence that the United States, Britain and France have sought to launch a push for possible sanctions against Iran. But Russia and China, also permanent members of the Security Council, have repeatedly expressed skepticism with that approach.

OJ, you should read Robert Heilein's non fiction about his travels to the Soviet Union. He had them pegged as third world in the fifties. The 'top men' have a lot to answer for.

Would anyone be surprised if the vaunted Russian and Chinese nukes were as fictional as the rest of their "accomplishments" seem to be.
