Front Page News

You would think a story on an agreement to hide Iranian nuclear weapons in Syria would be front page news. (I haven’t seen it in my paper anyway). We have The Officer’s club on it anyway.

LONDON — 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.
