NoKo Busted By Israel In Syria

Did you expect a bit more outrage from the Global Association of Idiot Nations over Israel's attack of what they claimed to be a Syrian nuclear facility? I certainly did. Now we know why the response -- from Damascus to Pyongyang to -- has been so muted:

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 informed sources in Washington and Jerusalem.

The attack was launched with American approval on September 6 after Washington was shown evidence the material was nuclear related, the well-placed sources say.

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. (Times of London)

So much for that enemy of the Left, Cowboy George Bush. Imagine that he demanded proof before letting the Israelis load up their six-shooters!

And, by the way, so much for that enemy of the Left, the roughshod-running Israelis.

This certainly explains why Damascus has been nearly mute in its response to having its sovereignty invaded by the hated Jews. But what about NoKo? You'd think Li'l Kim Jong Il would have something to say, if nothing more than a lie to distance his regime from the evidence.

Well, it turns out that's an impossible lie, even for the very well-trained Li'l Kim:

Evidence that North Korean personnel were at the site is said to have been shared with President George W Bush over the summer. ...

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.

That conversations would fly between Beijing and Pyongyang after this incident is telling of the state of world terrorism, and, possibly, hints rather strongly that perhaps there's one rather prominent nation missing from the Axis of Evil roster.

We don't know what was said in those conversations, but our intelligence community and our president do. Perhaps China was trying to reign in L'il Kim; perhaps he was getting his knuckles rapped for failing so publicly, thereby embarrassing the Axis. Most likely, China wanted to no what NoKo did wrong that allowed the Israelis to get wind of the whole affair, so the same mistake wouldn't happen again.

Whatever China said, whatever China's role, it is clear that L'il Kim's days must be numbered. While negotiating (in very bad faith) about taking apart his nuke program, we now have hard evidence that he is still trying to create legions of nuclear terrorists. This information comes to us from an Israeli special ops team that risked its life to get the info, so the information deserves more than a space in a file cabinet.

It's time to make L'il Kim's life very, very unpleasant.
