Isn't there an international ban on exportation of Uranium?
I don't know about a NWO, but I would like to see considerable control being put on the sale of uranium.
It seems that supply is not a problem with uranium, while what to do with the waste is a huge problem.
In June 2008, a parliamentary proposal was put forward to change the city's name to "Nursultan", in honor of President Nursultan Nazarbayev. The idea was rejected by Nazarbayev himself, who said the decision of renaming the city will be for future generations.

I believe your abusive reply turns people off. So if you want to make a point use a more civil tone please.
Does the name along with all the other info about the place prove anything? No! It only becomes an interesting side note.
The proof of anything is in what this guy is doing and the things he is saying and the company he keeps.

I wonder why they haven't tried to cap this burning natural gas well, so they can tap the natural gas and put it to good use. It seems that there is a whole heck of a lot of money literally being burned away.

Media outlets as well as the official government website in Kazakhstan are reporting the surprise discovery of local geoglyphs or ‘Nazca Lines’.
The Kazakhstan Geoglyphs (photo above, thanks to photojournalist N. Dorogov) appear to depict a humanoid figure wedged between two unusual structures. The drawings are located in the remote Karatau Mountains in South Kazakhstan.
Kazhakstan is an area of intense UFO sightings and activity. Recently the Kazakhstan Government toyed with the idea of creating a UFO landing field and an alien embassy.
