Syria built nuke plant as Saddam fell?

I've repeatedly pointed out that Saddam's scientists, the heart and soul of his WMD programs, took refuge in Syria and Iran with Russian aid. As it turns out, right about the time the Syrians began construction of that recently bombed nuclear weapons center. Allahpundit posts

Curiouser and curiouser: Syrian reactor bombed by Israel was built in 2003

Sounds like, with the shell of the reactor already long in place, they were finally ready to take “the next step,” forced perhaps by the fact that North Korea had made a deal with the west to denuclearize and needed to unload some of its infrastructure.

Which results in the predictable response from the enabler of Nuclear proliferation, Egyptian Mohamed ElBaradei, via LGF:

IAEA Chief Springs Into Action, Condemns Israel

The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, Mohamed ElBaradei, who has never succeeded in stopping a single country from developing nuclear weapons, is condemning Israel for the airstrike on Syria’s nuclear facility: IAEA chief lashes out over Israeli raid in Syria.

Because the UN is the “eyes and ears of the international community.” We’re not supposed to notice that those eyes are willfully blind, and those ears willfully deaf.

Iranians died alongside those Syrians and North Korean surplus.

Although... Londonistan is clearly guilty of aiding in it's own destruction as ToryDiary details:

You couldn't make it up

"The Foreign Office has cleared dozens of Iranians to enter British universities to study advanced nuclear physics and other subjects with the potential to be applied to weapons of mass destruction. In the past nine months about 60 Iranians have been admitted to study postgraduate courses deemed “proliferation-sensitive” by the security services. The disciplines range from nuclear physics to some areas of electrical and chemical engineering and microbiology." -- Sunday Times
