House votes on China nuclear deal,

the following is very interesting development re China and US Congress
rejection of Clinton's pro-China, pro-nuclear policy. Also to note, the
French nuclear giant, Framatome, with close links to Cogeam/TOTAL,
recently made bid to buy the nuclear division of the US giant
Westinghouse Electric! The French nuclear lobby, though far out-paced by
the US, know what they need for the future to stay among the ranks of
the superpower nations.
