    My husband just finished a series of lectures in New Zealand. There he found some interesting things going on. NZ has almost no restrictions on either immigration or students who want to study there, no matter where they are from.

    Consequently, they have found themselves in their universities with a number of students from Iraq. All of that seems fine until you understand that there is a nickname for these students given them by the faculties: the bomb boys. It seems an awful lot of those students are studying nuclear physics and then going home to Iraq.

    Interesting...

    Silently infiltrating? They know when to keep peace, don't they?
