No, that's not the entire narrative. Another narrative that is being openly expressed in conservative media is that selling uranium to the Russians is treason. Brietak pointed out that uranium can't be moved out of the country and you countered that the Russians cannot be trusted, ergo continuing the narrative that Russian ownership of uranium mines is under-handed. I figured you would try to skate on the narrow meaning of your statement, but in context it's just trying to keep the story of a possible nuclear threat going. You are a crafty liar, but a liar nonetheless.
Yes, That is the narrative and it will continue to be. You can imagine all you want it won't change the facts. Russia doesn't follow laws. They don't care who gets run over in their quests. They can smuggle yellowcake easy as the bricks of meth that cross the border. You stick to your story and keep your beak buried in the sand.
It's not that what you say is wrong, it simply a matter of perspective.
