Australia to break uranium deal with Russia
On Thursday, the Federal Parliament’s Joint Standing Committee on Treaties had recommended against ratification of the uranium export agreement signed by John Howard and Vladimir Putin last September.
I am sure this will be haled by the USA and treated as proper and adequate response to “Russian threat”. And of course, even thought the premise of Russia using this uranium for military goals is retarded (Russia being the third largest supplier of uranium in the world and all really can’t find it anywhere else) no one will think that this is exactly the kind of use of resources as a threat that Condoleeza Rice was accusing Russia in just yesterday.
Once again, the double standards rule. Nice!
