Now I'm Officially Confused.

Sully is getting chills down his spine about missing Iraqi nuke material. Wait a minute, tho. I thought there wasn't any such material. I thought this whole war had something to do with blind cowboyism and secret oil pipelines and commands from our Halliburton Masters.

Oooooh, my brain hurts!

This is the most ridiculous hyping of a non story Ive seen on this subject. There is a greater danger that the Mills and Lathes that were stolen are involved in some sort of conventional weapons production than in Nuclear Weapons.
This is only a story because of the political season and when I see the Reuters tag on the byline I give it as much chance of accuracy as the CBS Evening News.
The facts are that mills, lathes and metal buildings were stolen. Whoopee Do! These items are so common it is stupid to spin this as some grave threat on the loose threatening us from a secret lair.
I've built Nuclear Weapons and the Submarines that carry them. Besides mills and lathes we used all kinds of hand tools and a lot of sandpaper. God forbid any of that ever falls into evil hands.
