N. Korea exporting nuclear and ballistic missile technology to Syria, Iran

A United Nations report indicates that North Korea is exporting nuclear and ballistic missile technology to Syria, Iran and Myanmar.
The seven-member panel monitoring the implementation of sanctions against North Korea said its research indicates that Pyongyang is involved in banned nuclear and ballistic activities in Iran, Syria and Myanmar. It called for further study of these suspected activities and urged all countries to try to prevent them.

The 47-page report, obtained late Thursday by AP, and a lengthy annex document sanctions violations reported by U.N. member states, including four cases involving arms exports and two seizures of luxury goods by Italy - two yachts and high-end recording and video equipment. The report also details the broad range of techniques that North Korea is using to try to evade sanctions imposed by the U.N. Security Council after its two nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009.

Council diplomats discussed the report by the experts from Britain, Japan, the United States, France, South Korea, Russia and China at a closed-door meeting on Thursday.


Under council resolutions, all countries are required to submit reports on what they are doing to implement sanctions but as of April 30 the panel said it had still not heard from 112 of the 192 U.N. member states — including 51 in Africa, 28 in Asia, and 25 in Latin America and the Caribbean.

While no country reported on nuclear or ballistic missile-related imports or exports from North Korea since the second sanctions resolution was adopted last June, the panel said it reviewed several U.S. and French government assessments, reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency, research papers and media reports indicating Pyongyang's continuing involvement in such activities.

These reports indicate North Korea "has continued to provide missiles, components, and technology to certain countries including Iran and Syria ... (and) has provided assistance for a nuclear program in Syria, including the design and construction of a thermal reactor at Dair Alzour," the panel said.
And yet on Friday, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review conference - with President Obumbler's approval - passed a final 'consensus document' that only discussed Israel. (And please don't tell me that Obama opposed the provision on Israel - had he opposed it enough he could have vetoed the consensus document and then there would not have been one).

Has the world gone mad?

Read it all.

Just a thought! Nuclear Bomb = who will be convinced otherwise to ever unite North and South or in a two states within a country (Israel) like what happen when Reagan and Gorbachauf, Russia, Ukrane.

Can you guess what country was NOT mentioned in the consensus NPT document other than Iran? That would be North Korea. But Israel is viewed as the nuclear danger to the world!

What could go wrong indeed

Don't presume that the world was indeed sane in toto before the vote and mad thereafter. Assume all large collections of governments in organizations are acting in an antithetical manner to Israel's interests, and the interests of freedom and life loving peoples everywhere.

Don't presume Obami represents US interests. He won an election, and by the looks of it, his last. If the republicans take over in November, and all indications are now of a landslide of historic proportions, expect impeachment proceedings over the Seestak affair within short order. We'd get gaffing-Joe Biden as the replacement, but I am of the opinion now that this would be a step up.

The world is not mad, just biased. The world is not insane, just following its perceived strong horses.

Israel must be self sufficient in all aspects, and a net exporter of goods, and war materiel. Everything must be made locally.

Idiot companies which divest from businesses in the country should be barred from operating in the country. They should be given a 30 day window to wind down operations or sell off assets, before they are seized and auctioned off.

Idiot countries which give money to terrorists need to have the responsible politicians brought to justice. They need to be charged, and warrants sworn out for their arrests.

Stop lying down and letting the world kick you. Get up and punch back, hard. Make sure that those idiots who hit understand that the hits are not free, and the retribution is going to hurt.

This might sound offensive to some, but this is related to a mathematical game called the prisoners dilemma, which Israel finds itself in. The only strategies that win is cooperation, tit-for-tat retribution limits your downside losses. Since the world is hitting Israel, its time to hit back, and limit those down side losses.

Hi Carl.
"Has the world gone mad".
I don't think so i think already 2 months ago i was saying that it was not about Iran but about destroying Israel.
The whole thing is a plan of war aimed at the elimination of Israel.Israel can only count on itself to solve the crisis!
