Support your local enemy

And around we go, yet again! Bush was wrong about that Axis of Evil stuff - he didn’t have the balls to include China.

KUALA LUMPUR March 17 — Police have seized two containers loaded with equipment parts believed used to make weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear warheads, from a vessel in Port Klang two weeks ago.

The Sun daily reported today that the contraband, comprising dismantled parts listed under controlled or restricted sale by the United Nations Security Council, was found in the containers on board a Malaysian-registered ship bound for the Middle-East.

The free daily said police were tipped off about the illegal shipment when the vessel arrived at Northport from China.

This is the second such incident involving Malaysia, with the first being the Abdul Qadeer Khan network in 2004 where a Sri Lankan national, BSA Tahir, was detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for his role in selling parts capable of making nuclear devices.



Diplomats say new Iran weapons materials seized

UNITED NATIONS — South Korea and Singapore have intercepted suspected nuclear and weapons materials bound for Iran that breach UN sanctions imposed on the Islamic republic, diplomats said on Thursday.

The two seizures, made in the past six months but only revealed now, add to a growing list of alleged Iranian attempts to breach an international arms embargo, which are bringing mounting pressure to tighten sanctions, they said.

“South Korea authorities found more than 400 suspicious tubes in a jet cargo at Seoul airport in December,” one diplomat told AFP, giving details from a report to the UN Iran sanctions committee.

The tubes could be used for nuclear facilities, the diplomat said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the seizures have not been made public.

“In September, aluminium powder that can be used for rockets was found on a ship in Singapore harbor,” the diplomat added.

In each case the product was destined for Iran.

Hey, remember when Saddam got caught buying aluminum tubes and every leftist and his Uncle Joe was all over Bush, Cheny, and Rice about what utter twats they were because, duh, those were just aluminum tubes?

Over the past year a growing number of cases of weapons and explosives seizures involving Iran have been brought before the UN sanctions committee.

Up to seven tons of RDX high explosive were found on a ship in an Italian port in September that was going from Iran to Syria.

And Nigerian agents seized 13 containers of weapons, including rockets and grenades, in Lagos port in October.

The containers were loaded at the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas and were reportedly destined for separatist rebels in Senegal’s Casamances region. Senegal has since broken diplomatic ties with Tehran.

Britain said this month that arms seized by its special forces in Afghanistan on February 5 were being supplied by Iran to the Taliban militia fighting international forces.

You may not know this, but RDX is bad news. It’s only slightly less potent than it’s first cousins HDX and Octol, which are used to set off nuclear weapons. All of these are explosive nitroamine chemicals, all built around the same 3-D bent nitrogen ring molecular shape. Mix in some powdered aluminum to up the brisance even more, and a bit of paraffin and you’ve got a very stable goo that you can cast and even machine, that has roughly half again as much power of TNT. Hell, add in a little TNT as well and you’ve got H6, the stuff the Air Force puts inside the bombs it drops. TNT is about 60% more powerful than black powder. RDX is seriously potent stuff, slightly more explosive than PETN ( remember the undie-bomber? ) but far more stable.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
