North Korea twice attempted to ship material to Syria’s chemical weapons agency, UN experts say

North Korea has twice been caught attempting to ship material to Syria’s chemical weapons agency in the past six months, according to a confidential UN report prepared by a panel of experts.

Two unnamed countries intercepted the shipments. Their contents were not disclosed in the 37-page report.

But the shipments were destined for what are believed to be front companies for Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Centre (SSRC) – a Syrian government agency which has overseen the country’s chemical weapons programme since the 1970s.

    Thats what is supposed to seperate us from them.
    How STUPID are we for letting it happen to us?

    North Korea, Syria, ‘two unnamed countries’ and a UN panel of experts.

    They should have thrown in an astrologer to give it some credibility.
