Diana and I frequently discuss how little we report on Vietnam, Diana’s mother ship. But thanks to our New York correspondent Greenie, who sent us a story yesterday about Vietnam returning weapons-grade uranium to Russia under an anti-terrorism agreement between the U.S. and Russia, we had a sizzlin’ coversation about it over Korean BBQ last night.
DIANA: What? What about Vietnam?
JEN: They had weapons-grade uranium, man. Nuke-a-lar capability, yo. They had to give it back.
DIANA: Well, I mean…maybe they needed it.
JEN: For what?
DIANA: I dunno. Dude, why are you all up in Vietnam’s steez? They gave it back, for chrissakes.
JEN: You’re right. You’re absolutely right.
And it’s true, Vietnam, with whom the U.S. has only had diplomatic relations since 1995, did give back the uranium. But what I’m confused by is why they gave it to Russia. Aren’t they our renewed enemy, along with MY mother ship, China?
