Easing up on Syria
French President Nicolas Sarkozy is preparing to go to Damascus on September 3 and 4, after hosting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Paris in July. So it seems that the West is at last easing its stranglehold and beginning to welcome Syria back into the international community of nations. Which all bodes well maybe. Isolating a people and a government has never proved a truly effective policy.
