Today, Russia’s first shipment of uranium left for Iran. Reportedly, Russia had been holding up the shipments (and construction of the power plant for which the uranium is supposedly destined) to try to make Iran more compliant with the IAEA or something, but I guess they needed the rubles in time for the Orthodox Christmas/make-believe transition of power. Bush is reportedly cool with the whole arrangement if Russia takes the used-up uranium back, and not at all because it’ll be easier to claim the Iranians have nukes if we help them get them.
