KAMPALA, UgandaŚ Iran's president is in Africa this week to build alliances to evade stronger U.N. sanctions for his country's nuclear program, ease its international isolation and strengthen its economy.
Both Zimbabwe and Uganda, the two countries President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is visiting, have something to offer.

It’s okay, 0bama is out helping OJ find the real killers.
Zimbabwe and Uganda are known for their formerly tight relationship with Saddam Hussein of Iraq.
along with Niger.
Iran to obtain uranium from Kenya
Zimbabwe is also known for coziness with Libya, China & North Korea. Coincidence, I’m sure...
While the international arena has paid scant attention to Zimbabwe while it struggles under the firm boot of Mugabe, Zimbabwes ruling party was in proactive drive with the Intelligence Agency of one Saddam Hussein.
Indeed, Husseins Intelligence Agency had a section dedicated solely to Zimbabwe, although thus far no one has ever been able to explain why. ———While Kofi Annan was ignoring Zimbabwe crisis, his son was building Harare’s airport, CFP ^ | January 8, 2005 | Judi McLeod, Posted on 02/08/2005 11:08:20 AM PST by MikeEdwards
* Uganda, Iraqi diplomat FALLAH HASSAN AL RUBDIE & Allied Democratic Forces aka ADF :
BAGHDAD--Saddam Hussein's regime was linked to an African Islamist terrorist group, according to intelligence papers. The documents provide the first hard evidence of ties between Iraq and religious terrorism. Secret dossiers detailing the group's discussions with the Iraqi Intelligence Service were found in the spies' Baghdad headquarters, among the detritus of shredding. The papers show how an Iraqi diplomat in Nairobi, Fallah Hassan Al Rubdie, was in discussion with the Allied Democratic Forces, a Ugandan guerrilla group with ties to other anti-Western Islamist organizations. While the United States has long argued that Saddam's regime was aiding Islamist groups, it has struggled until now to provide evidence. ---------- "Papers connect Iraqi spies to African terrorist group," BY PHILIP SMUCKER AND ADRIAN BLOMFIELD, Chicago Sun-Times, April 18, 2003
Nick Berg, the cell tower-climbing American that Zarqawi decapitated in Iraq, spent some time in Uganda before 1999.
Another backdoor uranium supplier...
Hey, send Valerie down there. I’m sure she can investigate...
Well, isn’t that just brilliant...
Zimbabwe is a shit hole. Couldn’t we bomb these guys to heck in about 15 minutes ?
What are we doing ?
Hey sofa, you hit on a cast of evil characters and countries people better wake up and realize are going to take out Israel, America and everything inbetween.
Ahmadinejad not only teaming up with
Mugabe but also add in another one, Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez.
Another Uranium loon who is teaming up with Iran and
building up other allies in Latin and South America.
In the mean time Obama wants Bibi to shutup and make nice with the enemy.
It is 1936 all over again.
Time is short for America, Israel and other freedom loving countries while every anti war far leftists from Marxist
Obama to the NeoLeftist Ron Paul loons , the Blame America
first bunch help take down civilization by allowing this to go on.
What a perfect target for Israel. No one gives a damn about Zimbabwe but the message/warning is sent loud and clear, and at the same time an attack down there does nothing to stoke the nationalist fervor in Iran that Ahmadinejad is trying to foment. And finally there are no serious airspace issues to deal with. So wherever it is the Zimbubus mine their uranium I sure as hell wouldn't want to be the nightwatchman.
Ok, Iran will get the bomb. Let me be the first to say. Iran got the bomb on Obama’s shift.
Israel and the US will "get" the bomb as well. /s
He is busy cracking down on the j00s, I mean Wall Street.
Like China, Iran, and Zimbabwe?
____ Jimmy Carter!!!!!
I had a feeling their was more than one country in Africa that may have been supplying some form of raw or processed material.
That is why the whole Joe Wilson thing frosted me, he may have been looking in the wrong country and GWB, Cheney and Company couldn't come out and say it and the dumb @$$ press couldn't think critically enough to ask it or let go of their bias not to bash Bush!
This is interesting. Iran owns a 15% stake in one of the largest uranium mines in Southern Africa, Rossing out of Namibia. Not sure why they need anything from Zimbabwe or Uganda.
Don't plame me ... i just work here.
Maybe James Cameron can make an allegorical film about evil Iran mining and plundering the beautiful, unspoiled, virginal natural state and exploiting the noble savages, all for the power to be gained from a rare mineral.
Please send Valerie Plame’s husband over there to confirm, would ya?
Iran just might obtain some uranium from the Israeli Air Force one of these days.
A lot of us sharing brain waves.
Joe and Val intentionally looked in wrong place,
and steered the US away from the truth,
as their consulting company helped make
the yellowcake deals, along with COGEMA
in France who was paying them consulting fees.
Cogema got 2 billion of Saddam’s oil for food
Mengistu Haile Mariam is a guest in Zimbabwe under Robert Mugabe. He was sentenced to die in Ethiopia. He is the worst dictator in Africa that resulted in millions of deaths including the famine that led to the World Aide concert.
“Zimbabwe is also known for coziness with Libya, China & North Korea. Coincidence, Im sure...”
I suppose Mugabe doesn’t realize that the leaders of these countries look down on him because he is black and that they think of him as an inferior tributary, not an equal at the negotiating table. The minute they get nukes of their own, after blowing Israel to smithereens, the Chinese will take Africa while Iran takes the Middle East.
And Mugabe will either do as the Chinese say or end up shot. He’s literally supplying the means for his own overthrow.
Iranian uranium (haha) is rich in molybdenum, which makes it more difficult to enrich, so it’s easier to buy it from foreign countries....like Zimbabwe. And Russia.
