Q: What weighs the same as a rhinoceros but is missing from the homepages of the major news sites?

A: The uranium found in Iraq


Q. What is the appropriate response to the UN when they whine we didn't ask permission to transport uranium that could be used for dirty bombs?

A. The same response the American delegate made at the UN in South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut when the Canadians condemned the actions taken by American in apprehending Terrance and Phillip.

Since the administration gave the announcement to the lowly Energy Secretary (instead of having Rumsfeld or Bush crow about it), and it is low grade uranium, it seems that the administration is not even trying to pretend this is "WMD" evidence.

there are many industrial and medical uses for radiological material. It can also be used in "dirty bombs" but this stuff is not uranium as you suggest.
