Is the US ready to bring Syria in from the cold?

An article in yesterday's HaAretz highlights the American dilemma about whether to begin to include Damascus in any solution to the current crisis in Lebanon.

The author, a former Israeli ambassador to the US, argues that despite calls to end Syria's isolation, the time is not yet ripe. Syria would demand a re-opening of discussions on the return of the Golan. This is too high a price for America and Israel right now.
