I've Been Thinking:
Yesterday I took a first look at the travel schedules of world leaders as a way to better understand world politics.
The President of Iraq, Jalil Talibani, arrived in Syria to discuss security issues.
During Ahmadinejad's visit to Venezuela the two countries agreed that there is too much oil in the market and they will recommend to OPEC to reduce the amount brought to the world market.
Hillary traveled from Iraq to Pakistan where she had a forceful conversation with Musharef about al Qaeda.
Cancelled travel plans reveal and teach as much as plans that are executed.
