    US and Iran - United again

    First the Bush regime, and those in power in Iran were united against gays, now it seems they're united against legal moves to sue the Iranian defence ministry, this report from Middle East Newsline:

    The administration has supported Iran in rejecting a suit by the brother of a slain Iranian dissident who sought to collect a $2.8 million judgement from Cubic Defense Systems. Earlier, the Defense Ministry won a suit against Cubic for failing to honor a contract to the Iranian Air Force signed in 1977. Officials said the administration was concerned that Elahi's victory could spark suits by terrorist victims against U.S. companies that owe money to Iran. The State Department has sought to use the billions of dollars in frozen Iranian assets as a bargaining chip in future negotiations to restore relations with Teheran.
