UK link to Iranian nukes

The Guardian (UK) is reporting that a British company has been shut down after an attempt to sell black market Russian weapons grade uranium to Iran and Sudan.

Anti-terrorist officers and MI6 are now investigating a wider British-based plot allegedly to supply Iran with material for use in a nuclear weapons programme. One person has already been charged with attempting to proliferate ‘weapons of mass destruction’.

During the 20-month investigation, which also involved MI5 and Customs and Excise, a group of Britons was tracked as they obtained weapons-grade uranium from the black market in Russia. Investigators believe it was intended for export to Sudan and on to Iran.

Florida outlaws investments in Iran and Sudan

From Ummah News Links...

“Doing business with Iran is like doing business with Nazi Germany or Imperial Japan in 1942.”

Florida became the first state in the United States on Friday to outlaw pension fund investments in any companies doing business with Iran’s energy sector and with Sudan.

Several other states have divested pension funds with companies doing business in Sudan and some states have general policies against such investments. But none had put the action into law.

“It’s not just what’s right for Florida. This is what’s right for America, it’s right for the world,” Governor Charlie Crist said after signing the bill. “It says that Iran, the world’s leading sponsor of terror, we will not stand idly by anymore. And to Sudan and the genocide that is occurring there, we will not stand idly by and let that happen anymore, not Florida.”

About $1 billion of Florida state money is currently invested with companies that do business with Sudan and Iran’s energy sector, said state Senator Ted Deutch, the bill’s sponsor.

While the state has about $134 billion in its pension account, the fourth largest in the United States, the measure also covers an additional $16 billion in state money that Florida invests in various markets.

Under the new law, companies will first be given an opportunity to stop doing business with the two countries before state funds are pulled. Deutch said the state should be fully divested within a year.

“Tens of billions of dollars nationwide are invested in companies that are making it easier for the Iranian government to develop nuclear weapons and to make it easier for Iran to produce weapons that are being used against our troops,” Deutch said, referring to claims that roadside bombs used in Iraq are being made with Iranian know-how.

Florida’s move has also spurred other states to explore similar legislative action, said Christopher Holton, vice president of the Center for Security Policy in Washington.

“The Florida legislation is absolutely precedent-setting,” Holton said. “It’s a basic moral issue. Do we really want any of our investment dollars going to our enemies?

Harry Reid crash and burn

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is now viewed favorably by 19% of American voters and unfavorably by 45%. Just 3% have a Very Favorable opinion while 22% hold a Very Unfavorable views.

Reid has been very visible over the past week in the furor over immigration reform. The effort to pass a bill that was more popular in Congress than among voters may have hurt public perceptions of the Democratic leader. His ratings are down from a month ago when 26% had a favorable opinion of the Democratic Senator.   source: Rasmussen
