Wiener of the Week

While it would seem that, given my lack of posting activity, I would be the candidate for the WotW, there is actually a more deserving recipient.

I want to know who in our wonderful governmental mess thought that this was a good idea.

The United States and the United Arab Emirates have hammered out a nuclear cooperation deal that would bring U.S. atomic technology and know-how to a site less than a hundred miles from Iran's shores, an envoy from the Persian Gulf monarchy confirmed Monday to state media.
Okay, I know that UAE makes sense as a counterweight to Iran. I know that the UAE has been a great ally for the past quarter century. BUT...the Shah of Iran was a great ally for a quarter century, too.

Does UAE seem like the kind of place that might abuse nuclear technology? No. At least not at the present time. But nuclear technology is like Pandora's box. Once it's open, there's no putting the genii back in the bottle. If UAE's government is ever overthrown by Islamic extremists, we'll have given birth to nuclear Jihad!

So, to whatever of Leviathan's moronic representatives dreamed up this idea, congratulations! You're the Wiener of the Week.
