Another Step Towards War

In the next issue of The New Yorker Seymour Hersh confirms that in the September Israeli bombing of Syria, the North Koreans were working with the Syrians in some capacity.

This in and of itself is incriminating enough to silence the Syrians, though, it is interesting that the U.S. and Israel refused to cooperate with the IAEA. The IAEA concluded that the bombed facility was not a nuclear facility.

Raw Story reported that the allegations of the Syrian nuclear facility had been possibly leaked from Dick Cheney, despite their being no evidence of any nuclear material in the area.

The whole incident lends the feeling of deja vu and as Hersh told Wolf Blitzer on CNN yesterday, the airstrike sends "a message for the Iranians that we're coming."

Scott Ritter's prediction of an April U.S. airstrike on Iran seems to be coming true. With any luck Ritter will be wrong for once.
