UAE Seizes NK Weapons Destined For Iran

Remember President Bush declaring Iran and North Korea as two of the three members of the so-called Axis of Evil? While many thought that such a public declaration by a president of the United States was unfortunate, there are increasing indications that it was true.

Officials in the United Arab Emirates have apparently seized a cargo of arms sent by the North Koreans to Iran. While the arms were conventional in nature, it does raise additional alarms because - of course, North Korea has developed a nuclear bomb and Iran is trying to do likewise. And there have been other indications that the two nations have been collaborating on Iran's nuclear program.

The seizure, therefore, is a significant one and should not be quickly dismissed by those who fail to grasp the potential threat a nuclear Iran would present to the world.
