Drudge is reporting that the arrival of that North Korean ship in a Syrian port prompted the recent Israeli airstrike against a suspect nuclear facility. According to CBS News, the raid destroyed a building that was believed to house nuclear equipment, although no one has specified the type of hardware. Other media accounts suggest that the building was located an an "agricultural research complex" near the Syrian border with Iraq.
CBS doesn't have anything on their website, suggesting that they're holding the story for tonight's Evening News. While the report (once again) suggests a nuclear link between North Korea and Syria, we still don't know what was on that ship, a cargo that, presumably, made it way to the research facility, prompting the Israeli airstrike. Equally puzzling is Pyongyang's decision to send the equipment by ship, risking the possibility of detection/boarding by U.S. or Israeli naval crews during its transit.
One thing is certain: future shipments of sensitive cargo between North Korea and Syria will move by air, not on the water (assuming the cargo can fit on an IL-76, or a charter transport).
