The Japanese, not being corporately stupid, may well not have given up all the fissionables? Perhaps, being just perspecacious enough to envision a troubled future vis-a-vis their brobdingnagian neighbor to the west, they may still have some weapons-grade heavy metals squirreled away about the place? One would certainly hope to find that sort of wisdom in the government of the only nation ever to be on the receiving end of a nuclear strike.
See, that's why sites like this need people called "editors". :|
So, does this mean that Boehner isn't really a Republican, or that the national Republican Party is actually just the backside of the Democratic Party?
CVS could make up the pinprick drop in its revenue in a heartbeat. They just need to start selling ammo. :)
I wonder how many juicy subsidies, tax credits, transfer payments, etc., etc., to tobacco firms are embedded in that weighty tome our Congresscritters have dubbed an "agriculture bill" this time around?
Relative to what the article above says is their annual revenue - something around $123B - yeah, a bil and a half *is* insignificant.
Here's how you decode it: you say whatever advances Islam. Iran faced down the civilized world and the civilized world blinked. Being up-front about that is a huge gain of face in the diplomatic world. Islam advances. Iran is telling the truth. Flip side; the Obama Administration can't admit taking the sack without first checking to see if the pig's in it. It comes out that the Administration lied about the deal and US veracity, integrity and reputation suffer. Islam advances. The President, who does seem intent upon advancing the pedophile Bedouin bandit chieftain's legacy, is lying. I dunno, it made sense when I thought it up. I'm just too tired to write it out coherently. G'night everyone. :)
It's not that they must lie, it's that it's ok to lie if it will advance Islam.
The thing that concerns me is less about the uranium enrichment (face it, Tehran's gonna keep refining U235 unless and until someone drops enough ordinance to scatter the facilities to the four winds) itself, and more about if they're sourcing deuterium and lithium. After all, fission is passe. If you really want to make a statement (or eradicate Tel Aviv, not that Khamani's minions would want to do anything so outre) you gotta step up and join the hydrogen in, helium out club.
What a terribly cynical thing to say about the decent and high-minded paragons of science who are trying to do no less than save the entire planet from the meaningless and foolhardy activities of so many horrible humans infesting it! How DARE you imply crass, politically manipulative, financially driven motivations lie behind such exalted public-spiritedness!?!?!? ps - I bet some o' them fellers could cut you a heck of a deal on some prime FL real estate :)

Heh... from a genetic point of view, you could argue that our current President is not really black, unless you're going by something like Virginia's very racist turn-of-the-20th-century "one drop" laws. And isn't it disgustingly patriarchal to label Mr. Obama black just because his father is black? Wouldn't it be more matriarchal and less misogynistic and PC and so forth to call him white because his mother was white?
