Well it seems the axis of evil (Syria, Iran and North Korea) are much more dangerous than the left wing in this country wants to admit. Case in point there was a illegal and secret Syrian nuclear facility in the desert destroyed by Israel last fall:
Israel has admitted for the first time that an air strike in Syria last year was aimed at a nuclear facility built with assistance from North Korea.
The Japanese daily newspaper Asahi Shimbun cited sources at the Japanese foreign ministry for its report of a meeting between Ehud Olmert, the prime minister of Israel, and Yasuo Fukuda, his Japanese opposite number.
Mr Olmert is reported to have admitted that Israel carried out the bombing last September and that the target was a nuclear-related facility built using technical assistance from Pyongyang.
Given the architecture it was not a nuclear fuel processing plant like those in Iran. And it was not a nuclear power plant for civilian use. That leaves a nuclear weapons site. The one thing Iran is supposedly not pursuing since 2003, though they continue to create capacity to make the nuclear material for a bomb. So NK shows Syria how to build something with nuclear material that is conveniently being produced next door in Iran.
Is anyone connecting the dots or are hiding their heads in the sand pretending the dots aren’t there? How much evidence is required to take the threat seriously? BTW, does anyone think Syria would fail to claim the plant was peaceful if it could? It hasn’t – it wants to ignore the incident as much as Israel does. Telling.
