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?

Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? - Galatians 4:16

MANAUS, Brazil, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- China and Brazil should work to tap the potential for cooperation and take advantage of their economic complementarity to help achieve economic prosperity of both countries, top Chinese political adviser Jia Qinglin said on Sunday.

Jia, who is in Amazonas state as part of his visit to Brazil, said at a meeting with state governor Carlos Eduardo de Souza Braga that Amazonas, with a strong economy and Brazil's sole free trade area, has been the destination of investment by some Chinese companies, which have based their production here and sold products in Brazil and to other parts of South America.

...Amazonas' trade with China accounts for 20 percent of the total trade between Brazil and China, and China has become the primary source of foreign investment and tourists to Amazonas, he said.
