cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

financial stability ratings: britian sinks below nigeria

Lagos — The United Kingdom has been hit so hard by the recession it now sits below developing countries like Nigeria and Panama in the financial stability rankings, says a report by the World Economic Forum.

Out of 55 global economies, the UK ranks 37th for financial stability, just above the US at 38th, according to the Forum's second annual Financial Development Report.

Overall, the UK claimed the top spot as the world's leading financial system, displacing the US, which dropped below Australia to third place, hampered by dire economic stability scores and a weak banking sector.

Kevin Steinberg, Chief Operating Officer at the World Economic Forum, warns that stability is the key issue, not overall scores:

"The United Kingdom and US may still show leadership in the rankings, but their significant drops in score show increasing weakness and imply their leadership may be in jeopardy."
