Good God, People are Surprised About This

Wait. What?

When Iran attempted to launch a cruise missile from a “midget” submarine earlier this week, Pentagon officials saw more evidence of North Korean influence in the Islamic Republic – with intelligence reports saying the submarine was based on a Pyongyang design, the same type that sank a South Korean warship in 2010.

According to U.S. defense officials, Iran was attempting to launch a Jask-2 cruise missile underwater for the first time, but the launch failed. Nonproliferation experts have long suspected North Korea and Iran are sharing expertise when it comes to their rogue missile programs.

The Axis of Evil contains two evil regimes somehow bound together in common evil?

Iran and North Korea work together on missiles and midget submarines.

But somehow the notion that North Korea might share--or sell--nuclear technology or even nuclear missiles to Iran is inconceivable?

Does nobody remember the nuclear reactor North Korea was secretly building in Iran's ally Syria before Israel bombed it in 2007?

And don't leave out the unofficial junior member of the Axis of Evil!

Syria's government is continuing to make chemical weapons in violation of a 2013 deal to eliminate them, a Western intelligence agency has told the BBC. ...

The intelligence document obtained by the BBC says Syria's chemical weapons are manufactured at three sites - Masyaf, in Hama province, and at Dummar and Barzeh, both just outside Damascus. All three are branches of the Scientific Studies and Research Centre (SSRC), a government agency, it adds.

Ah, science.

Iran and Russia know about this, too, it seems, but may yet profess to be shocked, shocked, at what is going on there.
