Reason # 3,762 to Hurry Up and Finish In Iraq
Report: Syria agrees to hide Iran nukes
Tuesday, December 20, 2005
LONDON: Syria has signed a pledge to store Iranian nuclear weapons and missiles.
The London-based Jane's Defence Weekly reported that Iran and Syria signed a strategic accord meant to protect either country from international pressure regarding their weapons programs. The magazine, citing diplomatic sources, said Syria agreed to store Iranian materials and weapons should Teheran come under United Nations sanctions.

Give it two years and this will be the scenario the world faces. Iran will have successfully developed nuclear weapons despite Europe's 'best attempts' to use diplomacy. The United Nations will have done nothing. Israel will have it's hands tied and be unable to launch a successful preemptive strike like it did on Iraq's nuclear weapons plant in the past. Syria and Iran will work hand in hand in deploying/hiding these nuclear weapons. The stage is set.
Who will stop the number one sponsor of terrorism from using nuclear weapons? Who will spill the blood of their soldiers in order to correct this 'failure of diplomacy?' The United States of America.
If only the United Nations acted as it did back in the 1950s and worked as it was intended to work back when it was formed, this scenario would never take place.
Of course that was just a pipe dream. Instead of dreaming of what should have been, let's prepare for what will be. Finish the mission in Iraq and do it right. The clock is ticking and we've got another job to take care of.
UPDATE: Please know that our beef is not with the Iranian people. It's with the oppressive Iranian government. (Link to Why We Love Iran)
