Syria will not allow arms inspections


This has to be so off the wall that you would think they would not make such stupid statements.You show me yours but I won't show you mine. This sounds a bit like the now disappeared Minister of Information from Iraq. See Ted's post just below this to see the grand design!
Syria has asked the 15-nation UN Security Council to help transform the Middle East into a zone free of weapons of mass destruction. It has circulated a draft welcoming initiatives to rid the region of such arms. However Syrian Foreign Minister Farouq al-Shara speaking in Cairo said that Syria would refuse to accept outside arms inspections. He and counterparts from other states neighbouring Iraq are due to meet in Saudi Arabia on Friday for their first talks on Iraq's future and what the defeat of Saddam's regime means for the region. Although the countries did not actively support Saddam most were opposed the war which they say has left Iraq in chaos and in danger of destabilising ethnic and sectarian fragmentation.
