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?

1. US helped Yemen with hardware, intelligence

WASHINGTON: The United States gave military hardware, intelligence and other support to Yemeni forces who raided suspected Al-Qaeda hide-outs this week, the New York Times reported yesterday. The newspaper cited officials familiar with the operations as saying the US help, approved by President Barack Obama, had been given at the request of the Yemeni government.

The support was intended to help Yemen prevent Al-Qaeda from mounting attacks on American and other foreign targets inside its borders, the Times reported. "Yemen should be commended for actions against Al-Qaeda," Bryan Whitman, a Pentagon spokesman, told the newspaper. Yemeni officials said their security forces and warplanes had killed around 30 militants in the country's largest attack on the group in some years. One Yemeni source said the operations had foiled a planned series of suicide bombings.

2. US sent Americans to help Cuba's opposition


Cuban President Raul Castro dashed hopes Sunday for warmer ties with the United States, accusing the Obama administration of trying to help dissidents undermine the region's sole one-party communist state. "The enemy is as active as ever," Castro charged in his annual address to the National Assembly. "In recent weeks, we have witnessed an increasing number of efforts by the new (US) administration with that objective," the 77-year-old president added.

"The fostering of open and covert subversion against Cuba is on the rise." An American man arrested in Cuba on December 5 "was involved in illegally supplying sophisticated means of communications to 'civil society' groups hoping to coalesce against our people," Castro said, claiming Washington earmarked 55 million dollars to support Cuban dissidents. "The fact is that the instruments of aggressive policy against Cuba remain intact; the US government has not given up on destroying the revolution, and on producing a change in our social and economic regime," he added.
