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?

Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) today announced that it has acquired five oceangoing dry-bulk commodity vessels, ranging in length between 179 and 225 meters (587 and 738 feet). The five carriers – one Handy, one Handymax, a Supermax and two Panamax vessels – provide cargo-carrying capacity between 36,000 tons and 67,000 tons and will transport all types of grain, grain products and bulk commodities to and from ports in Europe, South America, Asia and other parts of the world.

“These five carriers compliment ADM’s global transportation network and allow us to ship grain throughout the world with more flexibility and lower cost than outside carriers,” said Royce Wilken, an officer of ADM Transportation. “As we continue to expand our continental transportation networks around the world, connecting these regions on a global scale aligns with our strategy to expand the geographic scope of our business.”

...“In addition to providing us greater control of the supply chain, these vessels will improve operating margins, and help to position us ahead of our competitors with regards to net delivery cost,” said Wilken. “The productivity gains these vessels bring to ADM will also help ensure that our just-in-time delivery capabilities are among the best in the industry.”
