Everybody knew this was coming the moment Syria was given a voice in the IAEA when they were on the rotating security council it was used for trying to hurt Israel constantly now Syria is on the IAEA they will use the oportunity with the backing of the whole world to get Israel disarmed. When the original Saudi Plan was being drawn up Syria objected and was pushed into accepting it because Assad wanted a condition to be that Israel gives up it neuclear capability which amazingly the other arab states preasured Syria into dropping it. Now Assad has power he will try get everything he can out of it and with an idiot like Olmert in Israel and the Bush administration into its last year and it looks very likley the democrats will take over Assad wants to create a situation beneficial to him long term and to try hurt Israel short term.
