         So far, I'm with Franz on this one.  The IAEA has no business 
imposing sanctions on anyone over bomb building.  Funny, isn't it, how the 
USSR could have all the nukes it wanted, along with a vast fleet of 
missiles to deliver them, and no one said anything -- including the 
IAEA.  The same goes for Communist China, and it's still a going concern 
(for anyone who might want to offer the excuse that the USSR is no 
more).  What goes for the IAEA also goes for the UN Security Council.  It's 
not running the world.

nuclear weapons, no one will dare to prevent them from making more."  The 
same could be said of the afore-mentioned and now defunct USSR, and the 
current regime in Peking.  In fact, I remember seeing a news item online in 
the last week or two wherein Putin said Russia might use nukes in the 
future in the need arose.  Something doesn't match up here.  Does Israel 
have The Bomb, or is it only fooling around still trying to separate enough 
U to build one?  (hint, hint)
