Trident

Whitehall officials assured the US that Trident renewal would go ahead.

Trident missiles are leased from the US and depend on “substantial American design assistance”. [So much for the much-touted “independence of Trident].

Security

Casks of uranium have been found in wicker baskets in Burundi.

A retired Russian General offered to sell “uranium plates” in Portugal.

A radioactive Armenian car was found on the Georgian border.

Security at the Kinshasa nuclear research centre is terrible, with large holes in the fence and no video surveillance.

It is almost certain that Congolese uranium is being smuggled to Iran.

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Russia offered Egypt nuclear weapons.  Egypt refused.
