      And no, it is far from only the west that's hypocritical, obviously.

      Syria has been producing its own chemical weapons for almost half a century now.  I can't think of any reason why it would need anything from North Korea.

      Unless "transferring chemical weapons materials" just means "selling them rubbing alcohol and industrial chemicals". In which case I can only shrug and say "so what".
