Trusting Brutal Dictators

Saddam's Uranium Stockpile Enough to Yield 142 Nukes
Five hundred tons of yellowcake uranium ore stored at Saddam Hussein's al Tuwaitha nuclear weapons research laboratory near Baghdad could have been enriched to produce 142 nuclear weapons, a prominent British physicist has determined.

Hey! Relax Guy! He only had parts essential to assembling gas centrifuges for enriching uranium burried in his scientists' back yard with instructions to hold until inspections were no longer an issue. Poor sovereign brutal dictator.
