Why are so many North Koreans in Syria?
Israeli commandos seized nuclear material of North Korean origin during a daring raid on a secret military site in Syria before Israel bombed it this month, according to Sunday Times report citing informed sources in Washington and Jerusalem.
They confirmed that samples taken from Syria for testing had been identified as North Korean. This raised fears that Syria might have joined North Korea and Iran in seeking to acquire nuclear weapons.
Diplomats in North Korea and China believe a number of North Koreans were killed in the strike, based on reports reaching Asian governments about conversations between Chinese and North Korean officials.
Syrian officials flew to Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, last week, reinforcing the view that the two nations were coordinating their response.
Now, I found it kind of odd at the time that Syria didn’t go absolutely bonkers over the rumored Israeli raid into Syria when it occurred.
Now we know why.
Now we got North Korea selling nuclear stuff to Syria, and helping them making it work. We got Iran smuggling missiles and stuff into Iraq. How many people scoffed at Bush’s axis of evil statement five years ago?
