    Good point, though I find it hard to believe such a sale wouldn't be kept as a secret (as the Israelis tried to do with Iran).

    Israel (?specifically, Israeli arms dealers, like Nimrodi) had connections with Iranians from the days of the Shah. Back then, Israel was a major supplier to the Iranian army. All they did was continue making deals.

    They didn't have these connections in Iraq.

    You are absolutely correct, Jericho Missile. This thread is supposed to be about UN efforts to rein in the massacres in Syria.

    Hopefully the Russians and Chinese will stop impeding action on Syria.

    The Arab League was set Friday to approach the United Nations Security Council to take immediate action to protect the civilians in Syria.

    “The Arab League will assign its Arab representatives in the UN Security Council in the meeting set to take place May 5 to ask the Security Council to protect Syrian civilians immediately,” a final statement said after an Arab League meeting.

    The statement reportedly dropped a reference included in an earlier draft to Chapter 7 of the Security Council charter, which allows it to authorize actions ranging from diplomatic and economic sanctions to military intervention...
