NK Nukes, Iranian Missiles, in Syria Updated

Ynet news is reporting that Israel has spotted nuclear installations they believe to be supplied by North Korea in Syria. The IAF flew an air to ground action tuesday in Northern Syria that was believed to be a missile site supplied with Iranian Missiles. North Korea responded with this statement:

"This is a very dangerous provocation little short of wantonly violating the sovereignty of Syria and seriously harassing the regional peace and security," a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

"The Democratic People's Republic of Korea strongly denounces the above-said intrusion and extends full support and solidarity to the Syrian people in their just cause to defend the national security and the regional peace."

Now, if North Korea wasn't involved, why did they comment at all? Clearly they are admitting that they ARE involved. Secondly, remember in the days and weeks prior to and shortly after the Invasion of Iraq? Remember we went in there looking for WMD's and didn't find much? Remember how there were persistent rumors that most of it was trucked, or in one published instance, flown, over the border into Syria? What do you want to bet that ol' Bashir has turned to the North Koreans and the Iranians to finish putting the parts together? Are you willing to bet your life?

UPDATE:
Bret Stephens, editor of the Wall Street Journal seems to agree with me.

UPDATE II: The Brits have intel that there was an accident in a Syrian weapons depot that killed dozens of Iranian technicians and 15 Syrian Officers back in July. Seems they were trying to mount a chemical warhead on one of Syria's modified SCUD-C's and somebody made an oopsie..... The VX killed them.

Exactly what I was wondering as I read the blockquote. Oh yeah, and "their just cause to defend the national security and the regional peace."?!?! When I think of Syria, their desire to defend regional peace sure isn't the first thing that comes to my mind.
