Apropos my latest below, here is the Nikkei dispatch
reporting on the likely transfer by North Korea, one of the last truly
totalitarian regimes in the world, of enriched uranium to Iran, one of
the many merely satanic regimes in the world. Merely satanic, except
it is on its way and fast to be an atomic power. The details of this
Nikkei story are especially intriguing. And they put under deep doubt
the reassuring hints from Secretary Gates and others that Tehran is
quite far from completing the early stages of their nuclear design.
