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?

2. China, French Polynesia pledge to boost cooperation

PAPEETE, French Polynesia, Nov. 21 (Xinhua) -- China's top political advisor, Jia Qinglin, met with President of French Polynesia Oscar Temaru here Saturday and they pledged closer cooperation. ...Jia said French Polynesia is known as the "Pearl of the South Pacific" and has a long history of friendly contacts with China.

In as early as the 19th century, there were Chinese settling on Tahiti, the most famous island among the Polynesian islands, who integrated themselves into the local society and actively participated in local economic development. They have served as a bridge linking the friendly and cooperative ties between French Polynesia and China, Jia said....Jia went on to say that French Polynesia has unique geographical advantage and rich marine and tourism resources. China is willing to work with French Polynesia to boost cooperation in such fields as trade and tourism, in which there is great potential for cooperation.

For his part, Temaru said his government is willing to forge a candid, friendly and close relationship with China in the era of globalization.

3. Ahmadinejad visits Brazil to build nuclear and business ties with Latin America powerhouse -- the spin being applied is that Ahmadinejad is "legitimizing" himself by sucking up to Lula, illuminati puppet. oh please.

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — For Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to Brazil provides some sorely needed political legitimacy for his increasingly isolated nation.

For Brazil's President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, it is a chance for South America's largest nation to bask in its growing political clout.

Ahmadinejad's first ever visit to Brazil comes a day after Iran launched large-scale air defense war games aimed at protecting its nuclear facilities from attack as an air force commander boasted the country could deter any military strike by Israel.

..."With Brazil he gets more bang for his buck in the sense you're getting legitimacy from a more mainstream player," said Daniel Brumberg, an Iran expert at the Washington-based United States Institute of Peace. "One would hope Brazil's diplomacy would be skillful enough to get certain types of messages across to the Iranians and not just give Ahmadinejad the red-carpet treatment."
