Is the U.S. letting its nuclear arsenal collapse?

June 27, 2011
Financial Times

 To repeat, as the Financial Times does, that “world’s nine nuclear-armed powers” will spend $1 trillion over ten years on the “procurement and modernization” of nuclear weapons only befogs the nuclear disarmament debate (Nuclear-armed countries to spend $1,000bn this decade, June 19).

Zimbabwe to nationalize all foreign miners – except Chinese

March 30, 2011
WSJ

Further evidence of Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe’s special relationship with China came Monday as he announced that all foreign miners must sell out to Zimbabwe owners – except China. China, it is said, is carrying out special “national projects.”  Do we all recall the mysterious Chinese container ship that tried to deliver several tons of heavy weapons and small arms to Mugabe's secret police via South Africa - and, then that didn't work, via Angola - in 2008 just as Mugabe needed them to suppress his political opposition.
