Do you still think Iran is up to no good? You may be right...

According to this report they are trying to get their hands on some uranium.

The official confirming the intelligence described the Salehi visit as part of an international Iranian effort that stretches across Africa, Asia and South America and may involve more than a dozen countries.

Even though their's sanctions against selling uranium to Iran, some poor countries like Zimbabwe might just take the chance for the right price... They sure need the money...

Keep an eye on their exports.

Zimbabwe's wide range of natural resources makes agriculture and mining the main pillars of the economy. In 2009 agriculture and industry accounted for about 19% and 24% of gross domestic product (GDP), respectively. Zimbabwe has an important percentage of the world's known reserves of metallurgical-grade chromite. Other commercial mineral deposits include coal, platinum, asbestos, copper, nickel, gold, and iron ore. In order to develop these mineral deposits, Zimbabwe relies on foreign investment.

We know Zimbabwe don't really need the oil...

Only about 15% of Zimbabwe's total energy consumption is accounted for by oil, all of which is imported.

They do need food and weapons

Today, the ZNA is beset by shortages of supplies, including food. It is mostly under-trained and its equipment is aged, not particularly reliable, and largely immobile.


With all the farm murders and in Zimbabwe and all the turmoil in the country, they might just take Iran up on the offer
