Axis of Evil Roundup

John on September 19, 2007 at 8:32 am

Well, it has taken them a whole week to make up a story but finally Syria and North Korea have come out with a joint statement:

Syria and North Korea denied Tuesday they are cooperating on a Syrian nuclear program, and they accused U.S. officials of spreading the allegations for political reasons _ either to back Israel or to block progress on a deal between Washington and Pyongyang.

Meanwhile, Iran is said to be in a panic over the fact that Israel can overcome its most advanced Russian-made air defenses. Yesterday, they cut their citizens off from the rest of the world:

The Iranians announced Tuesday morning that they were blocking Gmail and Google access to Internet users inside Iran.

And for the second time in two days, Iran is saber rattling about a potential strike on Israel. Back in Syria, Iran’s attempt to outfit a scud missile with chemical weapons didn’t work out so well:

dozens of Iranian engineers and 15 Syrian officers were killed in a July 23 accident in Syria.

The axis of evil is having a bad week. That’s good.

Update: One bit of good news courtesy of the UN:

Two weeks after Israel’s alleged bombing raid in Syria, which some foreign reports said targeted North Korean nuclear material, the UN’s nuclear watchdog elected Syria as deputy chairman of its General Conference on Monday.

Because, really, who better to safeguard nuclear material than Syria?
