Paradoxically, the same stuff is imported by a desert country from the communist China, which is, according to the importer's creed infidel! As imposters, they have gathered or hired thousands of thugs to control the same people who once helped them to usurp power, but now their new slave drivers are inflicting pain on them, people!
Since cloud seeding contradicts centuries-old false teachings of their ideology in which rain is considered to be a divine blessing, not a free commodity, granted only to the most obedient slaves of the God's Rep on earth.
Naturally, the state-run TV never lets people learn of the magic role of silver iodide. If they do, the misled people might react negatively to the fact of having been, for hundreds of years, fooled. Let me take you back more than a thousand years and give you a passage which is still, 2011, in use and practiced by innumerable imposters:
"How to bring rain: When the water of springs and wells diminishes or dries up and when it does not rain, the Almighty's obedient slaves need to fall on their knees and prostrate themselves before Him and plead for rain. People need to beg the Almighty to be pardoned for their sins which is the main cause of no rain. Best time to carry out the prayer is at dawn.
"People need to fast for three consecutive days in advance. On the 3rd day, they must go out to the desert barefooted. It is better to be Friday or Monday. When the procession begins, it should proceed very solemnly.
"The leaders of the beseeching party need to carry their walking sticks! The leaders need to be accompanied by the elderly. Ignorant people and sinners should be banned to join the procession. After finishing the prayer, the leader will ascend the (staircase-like) high bleacher.
"Having sat, he must ceremonially arrange the laps of his long loose overall cloak! Then people shall repeat the following phrases after the leader in unison, each phrase 100 times. No more no less."
