After years of waiting...

The EU has made an offer to Syria - work constructively in Lebanon, and your international isolation will end.

An EU spokesman made the announcement as EU Foreign Policy chief Javier Solana met Bashar Al-Assad in Damascus.

Today's meeting ends the EU's two-year long ban on high-level talks. It started after the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Al-Hariri. France blamed Syria, and blocked any contact.

Solana will hold a press conference soon - full details later. One important question - Solana has offered to end Syria's international isolation, but does that include America.

My leaders returned like dogs knocking on Syria's door for food!
Damn right about time they did.
