November 24, 2007 - The plot has thickened. In the weeks leading up to Tuesday's Arab-Israeli peace summit in Annapolis, Syria, technically still at "war" with Israel, has repeatedly made it known to Condoleezza Rice and President Bush that it will neither enter into peace talks with Israel nor attend the summit if the Golan Heights are not put "on the table". Reports now indicate that both Rice and Bush have consented to the Syrian demand.
Not for nothing, if the Syrian envoy observes that all is not going as he'd hoped in Annapolis, he may want to consider appealing to Damascus' First Lady herself, Nancy Pelosi. Her penchant for "causing a stir" is substantially documented.
