Very Recent Iranian-North Korean Nuclear Collusion RevealedTopics: Iran
DEBKAfile reports that just twelve days before North Korea's first nuclear test on Oct.10, a secret Iranian military delegation of nuclear and missile experts was present in Pyongyang. The Iranians were taken on a tour around North Korea's Yongbyon reactor and the Punggye-ri testing site in the far north amid the preparations for the coming North Korean test. Apparently, this disturbing piece of US intelligence was laid on President Bush's desk before the US review conference with the Iraq Study Group and talks with the visiting Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert in Washington - both of which are to take place today.
So how far are the Iranians willing to go in their pursuit of nuclear weapons? On this, it would do Americans well to recall that Iran declared war on America In 1979:
"How many Americans realize that Iran declared war on us 27 years ago - in 1979 - and has been killing Americans ever since...North Korea, the world's leading missile proliferator, and Iran are on the verge of starting nuclear arms races in both Asia and the Middle East - both hubs of terrorist networks that reach around the world - which could easily result in nuclear material, perhaps even a weapon, ending up in the hands of a terrorist organization. Did you know that Venezuela is the leading buyer of arms and military equipment in the world today? Did you know that Chavez is building an army of more than a million soldiers and the most potent air force in South America-the largest Spanish-speaking armed force in history? Did you know that Venezuela will shortly spend thirty billion dollars to build twenty military bases in neighboring Bolivia, which will dominate the borders with Chile, Peru, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil? Venezuelan and Cuban officers will command the bases. This is what the brilliant Carlos Alberto Montaner-a survivor of Castro's bloody regime-calls "a delirious vision of history," and it is driven by a new alliance of dictators from Iran, Cuba and VenezuelaThere's much more on this in "Nuclear Proliferation -- Options In A Perfect Storm."
It is part of the grand design so proudly announced by Ahmadinejad: the destruction of our civilization."
