Iraq is seeking a nuke, natch, s/q/n/

Iran is building a second nuclear power plant and that is causing some fears about their nuclear ambitions. Israel has given Iran until the end of March to stop their nuclear weapons program:

"If by the end of March 2006 the international community will have failed to halt Iran's nuclear-weapons program, diplomatic efforts will be pointless,"

Now Russia has complicated this Cold War Jr. standoff by selling Iran $1 billion in advanced weapon systems, namely the TOR M-1 SAMs.

Sitting quietly in the background is the announcement that Iran's oil bourse will trade in Euros instead of Dollars. When will the oil bourse come online? In March of course.
