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.
Iran also pledged to grant haven to any Syrian intelligence officer indicted by the UN or Lebanon. Five Syrian officers have been questioned by the UN regarding the Hariri assassination, Middle East Newsline reported. "The sensitive chapter in the accord includes Syria's commitment to allow Iran to safely store weapons, sensitive equipment or even hazardous materials on Syrian soil should Iran need such help in a time of crisis," Jane's said.
The accord also obligated Syria to continue to supply the Iranian-sponsored Hizbullah with weapons, ammunition and communications. Iran has been the leading weapons supplier to Hizbullah, with about 15,000 missiles and rockets along the Israeli-Lebanese border.
The accord, negotiations of which began in 2004, was signed on Nov. 14 and meant to prepare for economic sanctions imposed on either Iran or Syria. Under the accord, Jane's said, Iran would relay financial aid to Syria in an effort to ease Western sanctions in wake of the UN determination that Damascus was responsible for the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
Iran also pledged to supply a range of military aid to Syria. Jane's cited technology for weapons of mass destruction as well as conventional arms, ammunition and training of Syrian military.
Teheran would seek to upgrade Syrian ballistic missiles and chemical weapons systems. Under the accord, Iran would also be prepared to operate "advanced weapon systems in Syria during a military confrontation." Jane's said.
"The new strategic accord is based on the existing military MoUs, with the addition of the sensitive chapter dealing with cooperation in times of international sanctions or military conflict," Jane's reported.
This was the ass-munch I was talking about the other day.....
you got that right.....
Without crayons it's hard to write down to a level you can cipher by yourself.
Let's get down to the bottom line. You are arguing for appeasement, I'm not.
Dude. You really need to get some more sophisticated material.
Or at least get your high school diploma (GED will be accepted) before you start trying to comment on global politics.
no YOU called to EXTERMINATE people.
You don't get any more stupid/asisine/retarded or whatever term you wish to be called, than that.
.....What the hell is going on with these people.....
Like the Democrats in America they fear for the loss of their power and are making loud noises and blustering in hopes it will have some effect on the coming debacle.
You're damn right. Kill every raghead SOB that even thinks about attacking us. You can try to make friends with rabid dogs if you want to. That's real bright.
Do you KNOW any Iraqis that you would exterminate?
Ever been to Iraq?
Ever see what we are doing there?
I am guessing that you don't, haven't been there and don't have a friggin clue what you are talking about.
Of course your responses since that only illustrated the point that you don't have a clue.
"NWYC"....Northwest Yacht Club? Or is this secret NSA lingo that indicates spying on American citizens. Innquiring minds want to know....!
Looks like I found the intellectual club on FR. What happens to your arguments when you run out of derogatory names?
I have quite a few Iraqi friends. Are you saying we should kill them all?
Just FYI, the Iraqis I know despise the terrorists as much as we do.
Does this sound similar? I remember satellite imagery also revealing another murdered who is Sodamn Insane that he hid his garbage with the Syrians as well.
The truth will come to light, I just hope it isn't after a mushroom cloud.
It has been nothing but a PC war from the start. Appeasing the Dems. Like I said on another thread; America doesn't have what it takes. You're words are proof of that.
when you start arguing about something other than the EXTERMINATION of people, then we will talk.
Otherwise, Trollie, I would rather make fun of your ass.
