Today Secretary Clinton and New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully signed an arrangement for cooperation on nonproliferation assistance. Secretary Clinton said:"The United States and New Zealand have a long history of partnership, and today we had the opportunity to discuss a broad range of issues. ...[T]he minister and I will be signing an arrangement to combat nuclear smuggling. And I want to thank the minister and his government for their commitment to address this global threat. This is a prime example of how our two countries share a vision and work collaboratively on issues of common concern."

Read the Secretary and Foreign Minister's remarks at the signing ceremony of the U.S.-New Zealand Arrangement For Cooperation on Nonproliferation Assistance. This arrangement supports collaborative work between the United States and New Zealand to secure nuclear and radioactive materials that could be used in a nuclear or radiological weapon and to detect and deter illicit trafficking in these materials by improving monitoring capabilities at priority border crossings, airports, and seaports.

When will the U.S. complete the secret negotiation with the Mullahs regime and sign Arrangement to Combat Nuclear Smuggling to Hezbollah, in exchange for giving this serogate the State of Lebanon and giving Israel the Khazoog.

The threat from Tasmania and New Caledonia is equally great, if not more so, from their unemployed musicians and displaced actors.

The "Clinton Doctrine" that the Southern Hemisphere shall possess no weapon more lethal than a spear is perhaps too generous as we all have experienced paper cuts, something no civilized government should permit.
