Saddam’s Nuclear WMD In Syria, Chemical WMD In Iran, Others To Russia

Well if this is all true then there is going to be some serious rewriting of the “conventional wisdom” when it comes to Saddam’s WMDs: Saddam Hussein’s secret documents are measured by the shelf-mile and stored inside a secure but dusty facility near U.S. Central Command Headquarters in Doha, Qatar, and in several subsidiary sites.

Seems some frustration at the UN led some Syrian diplomats to admit, albeit off the record, that they did indeed lose a secret nuclear facility to a recent Israeli air raid: The Israeli delegation to the talks, headed by Miriam Ziv, the Foreign Ministry’s deputy director general for strategic affairs, accused Syria of smuggling mass […]

Israel Collected Evidence Of North Korean Nuclear Material In Syria

I was wondering why their was not more outrage coming from Syria, North Korea, Iran and the other usual suspects who hate America and Israel over the Israeli bombing in Syria.

Don’t Play With Fire If You Don’t Want To Get Burned

Seems Syria and Iran lost a lot of people recently as they tried to mount a chemical weapon warhead onto a missile (which could then be used on Israel or Iraq of course): Dozens of Syrian military officers and Iranian engineers were killed about two months ago in an a chemical weapons accident, Jane’s Magazine […]
