Europeans Selling Iranians Parts For Nuke Missiles

Scheming with Saddam and skimming profits from the oil-for-food program was bad enough. According to the Guardian (admittedly not the most reliable source) the mad mullahs of Iran have been shopping in Europe for nuclear missile parts...and finding sellers.

From the Guardian:
The Iranian government has been successfully scouring Europe for the sophisticated equipment needed to develop a nuclear bomb, according to the latest western intelligence assessment of the country's weapons programmes.
Scientists in Tehran are also shopping for parts for a ballistic missile capable of reaching Europe, with "import requests and acquisitions ... registered almost daily", the report seen by the Guardian concludes.
