While nato and their regional allies openly and covertly support their death squads in Syria, anti-imperialist and socialist Korea is reported to have sent a shipment of arms via a plane which has been stopped in Iraq. It's a shame the Iraqi government has stopped this, as they themselves know the bullying style of the empire as they have to navigate between their alliance with Iran and the pressure from the brits and yanks. - Sukant Chandan, Sons of Malcolm
Iraq: North Korean Flight Barred Over Suspicions About Syria Aid
Iraq prevented a North Korean plane from entering its airspace because it suspected that it was carrying weapons for Syria, prompting praise from the United States on Friday but also demands for a ban on Iranian aircraft with similar suspicious cargo. American officials have accused Iraq of allowing Iran to fly weapons to Syrian forces through Iraqi airspace, a charge Iraq has denied. "We urge the government of Iraq to take additional steps to prevent others, including Iran, from abusing its airspace by shipping arms to Syria," said a State Department spokesman, Michael Lavalle, who called the move to ban the North Korean flight a "positive step." Iraq barred the North Korean flight on Thursday.
