Belarus Wants To Go Nuclear

The Russian purchase of Belarus' state energy transporter was supposed to offset the higher cost of gas imports. But all that money seems to have vanished in the last six months, and the country is again on the ropes. The solution: make Belarus a nuclear powerhouse, literally.

The government wants to build a massive nuclear power generator. It just doesn't know how, where, or what to do with it once the thing is operational.

"Belarus lacks qualified builders and planners, particularly people with a specialized education and hands-on experience, as well as licenses from the IAEA."

Licenses? We don't need no stinking licenses.
