IHT: Brazil gives the U.S. a nuclear headache

IHT: Brazil gives the U.S. a nuclear headache: "WASHINGTON Just when the Bush administration thought it had turned a corner in the global campaign against the spread of weapons of mass destruction - with Libya's Muammar el-Qaddafi, of all people - we learn that Brazil has decided to begin enriching uranium in 2004 and now refuses to allow the kind of inspections being urged on Libya, Iran and others.

Brazil? Since when is the second-largest democracy in the Western hemisphere an aspiring nuclear proliferator? Should Brazil be on the shortlist for an updated axis of evil?"

I guess this would make Brazil the fulcrum of the new axis between good and evil?
