Israel's Secret Raid in Syria

George Bush refused to make any comment by saying "no comment" when asked by a reporter at Friday's press conference about Israel's September 6th commando and bombing raid in northern Syria. In light of his silence, Bush gave tacit American approval to Israel to conduct the raid on Syria who has a known partnership with Shi'a Iran, which George Bush keeps loudly accusing of being the main problem in Iraq while the remaining minority Sunnis are backed by Saudi Arabia. No comment is judicious inside this Middle Eastern tangled web that Bush has spun. Seems the Syrians had nuclear material and Israel went in and relieved them of it with full American approval. The origins of the nuclear material are stated to be from North Korea which the Cheney/Bush administration trumpeted their nuclear nonproliferation deal with the US earlier this year. Just last week Syrian officials were sighted in North Korea meeting with officials to get their stories straight before this all became public.
Evidence that North Korean personnel were at the site is said to have been shared with President George W Bush over the summer. A senior American source said the administration sought proof of nuclear-related activities before giving the attack its blessing.
This whole Axis of Evil triumvirate is about to become radio active redux. Six years later, North Korea has known nuclear capacity and is ruled by a miniature neurotic despot in love with Whitney Houston, Iran is in defiance of American led international UN sanctions while harshly emphasizing their nuclear work is for electricity and Iraq is a day-glo George Bush Gamma ray grade mess that no one is able to contain. Enter Israel who clearly states no nuclear weapons in the Middle East - except theirs. Israel's Air Force (IAF) back up their government's statements. We live in Interesting Times.

North Korea is known to be a source of missile technology that is shared within Syria. That Syria was prepared to store the nuclear materials leaves a multitude of questions about exactly how sophisticated is Syria with arming missiles with a nuclear war head. Syria has not been shy about lobbing bombs over its border into Israel, nor shooting at Israel's planes when they were in Syrian airspace.
The Syrian official expressed satisfaction that the “friendly and cooperative ties” between the two countries are growing stronger under President Bashar Al-Assad of Syria and Kim Jong Il of North Korea, KCNA said.
Guess who has said nothing so far and they have a vote at any proceedings undertaken by the United Nations Security Council and their own nuclear arsenal? China.

Israeli commandos have been the stuff of legend and lore for a variety of their known exploits. One of the most famous wrote a book covering much of Israel's military past. Secret Soldier: The True Life Story of Israel's Greatest Commando is told by Muki Betser with Robert Rosenberg.
