This is nuts. Why do I suspect the Hand of Hailiburton?
At the urging of the United States, the United Nations Security Council passed on Wednesday a resolution permitting Iraq to have a civilian nuclear program. The resolution, which also lifted prohibitions on exports to Iraq of certain materials that could be used to develop nuclear and other unconventional weapons, was one of several U.S.-backed measures to end restrictions that dated from before the invasion that removed Saddam Hussein from power.

Okay, so let me see if I get this straight: Iran, with a democratically elected president (nutty as he may be), is a threat to us in developing a nuclear energy program. But Iraq, with a fragile government installed despite clear evidence of electoral fraud and corruption, their nuclear program is just fine.
Alrighty then. Anyone else seeing this biting us in the ass in the decades to come?
