The last thing Iraq needs

No, we're not talking about the September 25th referendum.

Jennifer Paltz (AP) reports, "Iraq's foreign minister is asking nuclear countries for help building an atomic reactor for peaceful purposes, saying the country has a right to use atomic power peacefully."

It's the last thing Iraq -- or the world -- needs.

Forget that nuclear power isn't safe -- faux greens claim otherwise but corporate money pays them to say that, doesn't it?

Iraq is a country still torn by an ongoing war.

That's reason enough not to build a nuclear power plant.

There's also the fact that US weapons and equipment supplied to the Iraqi government ended up in the hands of . . . ISIS.

If they can't hold onto their own arms, how the hell do we expect the 'government' of Iraq to keep control of nuclear waste?

The very recent past would appear to indicate that Iraq can't safe guard nuclear waste and that many wanting to build a dirty bomb would see Iraq as the place to go shopping.

And that's before you factor in that Iraq still doesn't have a government that the Iraqi people feel represents them.

Meanwhile, the referendum is still scheduled to be held Monday, September 25th.

  3. Julian Assange should be free. But he needs to be quiet. His tweets are getting crazier and crazier. Give this guy some fresh air.

    Dear HU administrators: getting fired by Trump doesn't make you a hero. Nor does it erase the devastation of Black lives caused by the FBI.

  9. The $70 billion INCREASE in the U.S. defense budget is equal to all of Russia's defense spending.
  10. Trump strips the facade off of the U.S. He is bad for the brand but a continuum in the pantheon of presidential evil.
