Is Syria getting ready to "pull a Libya"? 

'Report: Syria asks Australia's aid repairing ties with U.S.' - headline, Haaretz.

Read the article. It is obviously too early to get our hopes up, but it is encouraging to see that Syria is trying to work the system to get back into the good graces of the United States. Rumors of imminent sanctions and more than 100,000 American soldiers on its eastern border can't hurt.

In much of the world, and certainly in the Middle East, it is more important to be believed than loved.
