I've Been Thinking:
One of the best ways of finding out the agenda of any country in the Middle East is by observing who is talking to whom face to face.
The vice president of Iraq, Tarik Hashemi, arrived in Damascus for a two day diplomatic visit. What makes the visit unusual is the fact that Iraq and Syria do not have diplomatic relations.
Iraq blamed Syria for the August bombings that devastated Iraq half a year ago. Iraq said that the Syrians permitted the terrorists to cross their border and then slip back over into Syria.
This meeting is an attempt at building bridges.
The big problem in all this is that Syria has a vested interest in sponsoring terror.
