NUCLEAR THREAT BY THE AXIS OF EVIL

I am worried to hear that the International Atomic Energy Agency has found enriched uranium at a nuclear plant near Tehran.

Jane's Defense Weekly reports that Iran has been importing uranium from communist China since 1991 and that "Western intelligence officials said the presence of metallic uranium is proof of Iran's military nuclear intention as metallic uranium is not normally used in commercial atomic programmes."

Iran has placed an order ($800 million) with a Russian company called AtomStroiExport, for the construction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant. So, isn't a bit strange that Russia and China are involved in a talk regarding North Korea's nuclear program?
