Israel attacks nuclear 'facility' in Syria?

The Times has an interesting account of the Israeli air raid on Syria on 6th September - it claims the raid knocked out a ‘plant’ equipping missiles with nuclear warheads - the plutonium in the warheads being supplied by North Korea. If true it makes a bit of a joke of Bush’s claimed nuclear diplomacy with North Korea - Bush has gone strangely quiet over the whole episode.

The New York Times suggests that although the development of a missile would have been years away this credibly signalled to the Syrians that such developments would not be allowed by Israel. Who could blame Israel?
